We Use Psychology, People Analytics & Human-Centred Design to help organisations ignite growth, uplift productivity & transform their businesses through their people
Our approach to culture leverages unique organisational strengths to grow five critical conditions that create sustained engagement, performance and innovation. Utilising your ‘cultural influencers’ and key social dynamics, we enable fluid networks of teams to innovate and perform by developing their collective intelligence, collaborative action and composite strength.
Linking directly to organisational strategy, we help you to develop Connected Leadership throughout the organisation to deliver results. We collaborate with you to uncover and empower dispersed leadership talent deep within teams. Working directly in their world, we take established senior leaders and dispersed leaders on transitional journeys; developing their emotional intelligence and integrated thinking.
Driving strategy, coping with transformation and sustaining high growth requires an integrated and evolving OD strategy that’s fit for the future world of work. Combining proven psychology and human-centred design, we work closely with you to build a strategy that puts your people at the centre, whilst building a strong platform for growth and productivity for the future.
How We Work
Discovery Development Coaching
Our work enables organisations to thrive in the face of increasing demands through the optimal cultural conditions, leadership, networks and mindsets; maximising the collaborative outputs of everyone.
Taking an in-depth view of the systemic, cultural and individual influences at work in your business, we provide you with a new way of framing your challenges that helps you pinpoint where you should start when igniting change. Our psychological approaches and innovative people analytics enable you to see your organisation’s culture, leadership and networks of teams in a new light. Working directly with key leaders around specific challenges, we combine the principles of human centred design thinking with rich organisational data to gain a deep, shared understanding of the people demands of your strategy and your external context and to plan how to unlock the behaviour and mind set shifts you need to deliver change.
Development starts with building deep and shared understanding of the challenge. Using insights from Discovery, we co-design development strategies that build energy and engagement and ownership of the challenge.
We work with senior and dispersed leaders from across your organisation to bring about shifts in the culture, transform leadership behaviour and shift peoples’ mindsets.
Human-centric design methodologies sit at the core of our approach, so that the way we work is uniquely designed for your context and in deep collaboration with your teams. This is augmented by our research, empirical psychology and practical experience to maximise our contribution.
A critical part of bringing about shifts in the organisation is about leaders going on a development journey themselves. Our leadership coaching is focused on helping individuals to make personal transitions toward an integrated and empowering leadership approach that will enable them to drive inclusive, transformational change in their organisation. We utilise a range of techniques from cognitive-behavioural to systemic coaching to help leaders gain deep insight themselves and to experiment and embed new ways of working.
All of our team hold coaching qualifications or are qualified psychologists. They have deep experience of working with a huge range of different contexts so we can always find the right fit for the leader and the context within which they work.
