Usually, most businesses focus on structure, processes and systems, but underestimate the most critical factor of all: taking their people with them. It’s the culture of your organisation that ultimately determines if any change is a success or a struggle. Research shows that 75% of change efforts fail – largely because the people that really matter aren’t fully aligned or prepared. We work with your people to give them the skills – and appetite – to make change a positive reality.
As the old cliché goes, ‘the only constant is change’. And that’s truer today than ever. Businesses, leaders and employees must evolve to survive. But all too often, they aren’t given even the basic skills they need to succeed. As they shift from business as usual to transformation, they need support, coaching and a toolkit that opens up new capabilities.
“We have scarce resources so need the business to take even more responsibility”
“The business doesn’t recognise our full expertise and what we can offer”
“They bring us in at the end to sign off their decisions, when we really should be involved from the start”
“We lack the skills to influence”
“Other teams relate to us as blockers, but we’re just trying to enforce the correct process”
“Communication is poor between our teams/organisations”
We enable change by enabling mindset. This means equipping your leaders to catalyse transformation. From awareness through to adoption, we unlock mindset to help people maximise and deliver.
Our consultants focus on seven fundamental shifts to achieve breakthrough change. Together, these unlock a new narrative that’s relevant, appealing and – most importantly – led by your people.
We challenge ‘the way things are done around here’ and empower people to create a different future.
We ensure your change is truly breakthrough and inspire you to take on the impossible.
Setting an ambition is one thing, declaring it is another. We equip you to be powerful and believable. Shifting reality with words.
We develop leadership that inspires and engages others, coaching concerns expressed along the way.
We allow you to recognise and challenge organisational habits, testing your comfort zone to find innovative and efficient change pathways.
The conversations happening around a change determine its life span. By embedding a ‘can-do’ coaching culture, we keep everyone’s eyes on the future.
Overcoming these is at the heart of our approach, using them as a catalyst to develop and an opportunity to learn.
Beginning by enabling mindset. We support this with exceptional project management, social-based communication and reporting to deliver three key benefits including:
A transformational mindset that challenges limiting assumptions and sees new possibilities around change.
Everyone commits to tangible business outcomes that demonstrate measurable success.
Skill and capability
