Developing leaders and teams

Justin McKeown giving keynote at Ducati

Faster, Higher, Stronger 

Every individual and team can break through to their next level of performance. And our mission is to enable this positive change. This is why we established Mission Group.   

We facilitate experiences that help leaders, teams and individual contributors: focus; challenge assumptions; uncover solutions. Importantly we develop both the mindsets and skills needed for elite performance. 

 Our specialism is delivering highly interactive experiences on Leader, Team Development and Communications for corporate, public sector and not-for-profit organisations across the UK, EMEA, APAC and North America.

  • We are expert trainers, facilitators, practitioners, who bring real life experience from different sectors and perspectives.
  • Using a variety of tools including: EverythingDiSC™; Whole Brain Thinking™ ( HBDI); Values in Action (VIA); and Five Behaviours of Cohesive Teams® , we help people use insights to transform the way they work.
  • Our unique approach ensures engaging, dynamic and thought-provoking sessions – where enjoyment is compulsory! [No one is ever bored or thinks they have heard it all before.]

If you want to break through to your next level of performance, let’s talk.

Teamwork = competitive advantage

Not finance, not strategy, not technology... teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage, because it is both powerful and rare. We strengthen teams.

Relationships deliver results

Efficient is not the same as effective. Investing in high trust relationships will save time, money and energy. We measure and improve trust.

Companies don't have ideas

Only people do! The more complex the challenges, the greater the need for diversity of thought. Creating psychological safety is key. But how?

Communication = connection

High energy communication matters most to team success. But there are so many barriers! Cultural, behavioural traits, faulty assumptions. Our experts revolutionise understanding and strengthen relationships.



Team Development

Silo working destroys synergy. Our proven frameworks help build unusual levels of trust, allowing teams to collaborate on shared results.

Leader Development

Managing people is the most complex career challenge. Our experts help new or experienced leaders adopt vital mindsets and skills for better success in leading people.   

Executive Coaching

Elite athletes rely on coaches for continuous improvement. We're your external eyes and ears. Supportive and challenging, we're in your corner.

Keynote Speaking

Inspiring keynotes with surprising insights, interactively delivered to engage every audience. Subjects incl: The Paradox of Safe Risk; The Listening Leader; Competitive Collaboration.

Justin is an exceptional motivational speaker and trainer. I had the privilege to attend one of his speeches at an annual company event. His charisma, manner, knowledge and passion captivated an audience of 500+! No small feat to obtain such great level of engagement on a technical topic, ( right after lunch!). We left his speech energised, ready to think outside the box and our comfort zones and a newfound zest for our professions!

Mission Group run outstanding people management courses for senior managers. I had heard great things about the training, but reality surpassed my imagination! Highly recommended.

Mission Group provided training to my rapidly growing design team. We found the sessions hugely enjoyable and insightful. We grew as a team - and the training was a catalyst for significant progress. I continue to reflect on the insights gained.

I’ve attended many trainings in my career but Mission Group’s was by far the most inspirational and impactful. It led me to think a lot. All the things I learned have blown my mind – and given me a different vision of my work life.

The two-day experience inspired me to re-evaluate my leadership style and make some fundamental changes as a result. I now feel set up for success. So, thank you for teaching me to 'challenge my assumptions' amongst many other new healthy leadership habits! Highly recommended.

A heartfelt THANK YOU for all your expertise, energy and enthusiasm. I've crunched the evaluation numbers and 100% rated the session as ‘excellent/good’ - with people wanting to put things into practice. All pretty amazing!

Richard Pedley, Talent Development Lead

The most skilled coaches and facilitators I have seen. The session was the most enjoyable and enlightening leadership sessions I have been on. I learnt a lot and hope to work with Mission Group again in the near future.
