We don’t cram the messiness of organisational life into preconceived models. We overcome obstacles to creating value by grappling with the complexity of human beings working together.
Our projects typically involve:
Our approach is founded on identifying the reality of your situation. We don’t collude with fantastical stretch goals nor idealistic notions that there is a neat solution to every problem. We recognise that organisational life is beset by contradictions and believe that leadership involves working creatively with them.
We clarify what is attainable: not to be the best at all costs, but to be the best you can be in the circumstances. While we give rationality its place, we foster under-used skills of intuition, improvisation and emotional intelligence.
Our professional experience comprises journalism, strategy and coaching. We have a lifetime’s expertise of enquiring into complex situations to reveal fresh perspectives. We know what it’s like to manage challenging assignments under intense public scrutiny and to very tight deadlines.
