Our Philosophy

When it comes to your organisation, we think in tens and eighties.

10% of your team will be highly talented: you need to spot them and help them to grow.

10% might be struggling or leaving: we can help them transition.

And as for the other 80%: they’re the bedrock of the business – we can increase their engagement (and as a result, your organisational effectiveness)

Our Principles

  • Everyone has potential and should have the opportunity to develop and realise that potential.
  • Enabling individuals to be comfortable and confident in taking ownership and responsibility for their actions and behaviours
  • Allowing everyone to operate independently and interdependently is a core element of our development programmes
  • We promote a strengths-based philosophy to enhance management and leadership capability and increase career resilience.
  • The work we do should be of benefit to the individuals, organisations and communities we serve.
  • Everything we do, we do with passion.

Our three focus areas

Helping your people transition

If some of your team are moving on, we can make their journey as smooth and productive as possible. We build a plan around each individual, with a focus on landing jobs –not just launching them into the world.

Keeping your teams engaged

We really believe that business performance begins with people. Employees want managers that care, listen, develop and stretch them. We help organisations build these skills to create exceptional engagement overall.

Developing your leaders

To reach your goals as an organisation, you need the right team in place. But sending your top team on a one-size-fits-all leadership course isn’t the way to get there. You need to first understand their particular strengths, then play to them.

The Team

Based in the UK, we’re a team of coaches, facilitators and leadership consultants -and we work with our clients to build plans tailored to their organisation and goals.
