“Peas in Pod started with strengths training and coaching which revolutionised the way our leadership
team worked together. We gained a deeper understanding of one another and began to work more
effectively together. What was created was a more cohesive leadership team who began to build their
respective teams more strategically. As leadership, we began to effectively step away from actioning
operational tasks and transitioned to delivering more efficiently through our teams. This allowed the
leadership team to begin focusing on more strategic objectives in relation to the business.”
