Welcome to Great Teams Academy
Making teams and leaders great
Great Teams Academy is the younger brother of its parent company The Centre for Team Excellence. We created Great Teams Academy because the leaders we worked with kept asking us for the resources we use. We also recognised that, while we have worked with Olympic champions, Global business brands and elite military teams for 19 years, our consultancy approach wasn’t scalable to those who needed it most – the everyday leader and team. That’s why we created Great Teams Academy – to act as a bespoke online platform that enables leaders to create great teams without having to use our consultancy services directly. Our mission is to help 1 million people be part of a great team by 2020.
A Digital Platform
We use cutting-edge science comprised of our own research in collaboration with Sussex University and leaders in the field.
Although based on science, our 19 years of consulting experience ensures that everything we do is practical and solution focused.

Dr Will Thomas
I love doing research. Not just as an academic exercise, but to make a real impact on the world and people lives. Following the completion of my PhD, and with a focus on providing practical solutions for leaders, I continue to research and apply a scientifically driven approach to team and leadership development as an honorary research fellow at Sussex University.
