Helping teams work better together

At Bracket, we work with a diverse range of companies to help them discover the perfect balance between team creativity, collaboration and productivity.

We support those who need to be creative and innovative in their everyday roles, and encourage our clients to work collaboratively, think strategically and build a strong team culture. We help you focus your energy so that you can drive projects forward, together.

Why we exist

Our vision is that every knowledge worker is able to fulfil their potential and thrive at work.

When we are engaged at work, we are more productive, perform better and we feel better about our lives. As most work today gets done in teams, if we can improve the way we work together, we can improve our experience of work. This has a positive impact on business, on our relationships, our wider environment and society as a whole.

What we do

At Bracket, we provide you with the tools, resources and support to do your best work together and reinforce collaboration across your business. We help you to actively make your working environment better and cultivate a great team culture.

By creating an inspiring place to work, you and your team can do more of what you love and make incredible ideas happen.

Our methods

Our friendly and direct approach allows us to quickly identify the essence of your team and develop new and exciting ways in which you can work better together.

We design and facilitate workshops, deliver training and provide coaching and consultancy.  We strive to be practical and accessible, create high-quality up-to-date content and support long-term behaviour change.

Our values

We live the same values that we actively encourage with our clients:

Growth mindset: there is always room for us to improve both as individuals and within our teams. We take a proactive approach to skills development. 

Design approach: we are intentional about the way we work. We craft our working methods to ensure we are working by design, not by default.

Facilitation: we believe strongly in the power of facilitation to build great team cultures and create inclusive workplaces. We are committed to respect, equality, and fairness.

Continuous improvement: always learning, we experiment, review and tweak the way we work to optimise for creativity and productivity.
