How we work
We work directly with you and your leadership team.
We act as a catalyst; we don’t try to be experts in your business.
Action, not a report. We work with you and your team to help you understand your situation and align on what you are going to do - in a way that gets you into action.
Value quickly. We deliver tangible business value within 90 days. Delivering value on your business’s key issues, not peripheral “quick wins”.
Tailored for your business. We do not use off-the-shelf packages. We develop in-depth knowledge of your issues and design a custom solution with you.
Energising, not draining. Our approach is effective and inclusive; it unleashes your employees’ enthusiasm, ability, and personal energy .
We have a set of beliefs about the world and how it works that shape how we work.
Benefiting from discontinuity is the key leadership challenge today
We are beyond the age of continuous change. Multiple simultaneous change creates disruption and opportunity at individual, organisational and industry levels.
Clarity leads to action
When business leaders see what to do and how to do it, they get on with it. We help top teams get clear about what they are trying to do – and then help them develop approaches to change that they understand and can make work.
People rise to a challenge
Implementing a new strategy doesn’t have to be a struggle. When faced with an exciting goal and a clear way to contribute, people can be surprisingly open to change.
We think business is the primary driver for innovation and material improvement in the world. As a result, we think it should have deep meaning for people: a key to unlock change and deliver sustained high performance.
Clients tell us we have a distinctive style.
Objective and Direct
We talk straight. We also understand that the most important facts are often the ones not talked about.
We work with your team, directly and on live issues. That means we get very close to you and your business.
We bring enthusiasm that leaves your organisation energised. We think every problem has a solution.
We bring a new point of view. It’s refreshing and inspiring.
We’re focused on what’s going to work, not on theories and models that you have to fit into.
Human and open
Stiff, formal – hopefully not us. We’re serious about what we do, but we’re human beings as well.
If our way of working works for you, if our beliefs match yours, if our style sounds refreshing, then see what “Services” we provide.
“Brought an invaluable breadth of experience, specialist knowledge and a refreshing clarity of thinking. We were totally satisfied – excellent service.”
Kate Corfield, Executive VP - Global Development, Empower (the professional services arm of Manpower)
Here’s what you can expect if you work with us:
Your top team is aligned
Together, you and your top team will have a shared picture of where you are going and of how you will get there. You’ll know that each member of your team has made a real commitment to what you are collectively trying to do and that they will translate this into action.
You have a clear picture of the road ahead
You’ll be able to describe your plan so that everyone can understand. You’ll be able to explain to employees, customers, suppliers and investors what you want to accomplish, what you need from them, and what benefits they will get in return.
Your organisation has more energy
The whole organisation will feel more energetic and be more focused on doing the right things. You’ll find more of your employees acting like leaders. They’ll be better able to articulate the direction you’ve set for the business, get people excited about the implications of that direction, and get them into action – quickly and willingly.
You see a noticeable increase in the speed of change
Shared direction + clear roadmap + more energy = faster results. It’s a simple equation, one that you’ll see working in your own organisation.
