Our Core Purpose
The answers to most of the world’s challenges reside within social relationships, connections and human capability. Then, it’s also about having the clarity, the energy and the courage to act purposefully. Be mindful of what you expect for yourself and for others.
When it comes to business and bottom-line results, great expectations and great employee experiences are at the heart of high performance and customer-driven growth. People change performance.
Our purpose is to help organisations, leaders, and their teams to perform, succeed, and grow.
- We enable shared, viable futures, and inspired workplaces.
- We help shape more workable structures and meaningful jobs.
- We facilitate more effective conversations, intentional choices, better decisions, explicit commitments and tangible actions.
- Ultimately, we equip our clients to deliver better business outcomes.
Principles that Guide Our Work
We are passionate about getting to know our client’s unique situation, their problems, and their environment so we target the right issues and deliver value. We don’t exist to sell products and one-size-fits-all, pre-prescribed solutions. Complex change requires the right investment. We begin where you are. It also means taking an integrated, whole-system approach to the design of fit-for-purpose solutions.
We also believe that the answers to today’s business challenges, invariably reside in the experience and perspectives of those within the organisation. People’s experience, passions, and talents are the most valuable source of innovation and sustainable advantage. They are also the most difficult organisational assets to mimic. We help you access and maximise your local genius.
In our experience most people want to contribute. Fundamentally, people change performance. We help leaders to ensure the workforce is set for success, and are able to give of their best. We encourage clients to identify and leverage theirs and their people’s strengths using an appreciative stand point that unleashes inherent passion and commitment.
Organisation structure, work design and an individual’s understanding of job role can profoundly empower or limit human performance. We help leaders to simply and systematically make sense of formal and informal dimensions to design effective roles and organisations.
Leaders are accountable for organisational and team culture. They frequently receive from the workforce what they practice and anticipate of others. We help leaders to explicitly articulate their intention, and congruently and constantly live those intentions to enable a focus on the issues that really matter to organisational performance.
We start by deeply understanding your goals and desired outcomes. Ultimately, our focus is on enabling strategy execution and maximising performance.
We are committed in all our interactions to the following values:
- IMPACT – We blend deep insight and pragmatism to offer sound thinking, that is respectfully challenging, and rigorous.
- INTEGRITY – We build partnerships based on honesty, trust, confidentiality, respect for diversity, and reliability.
- COLLABORATION – We encourage and invite participation and co-creation, to bring together shared insight, networks and know how.
- ACHIEVEMENT – We strive for targeted, high quality and enduring client outcomes.
- GROWTH – We are inherently curious and invest in continuous learning, improvement and innovation.
Our combined values underpin our consulting approach: Discover – Design – Facilitate – Enable
