Inclusion, Leadership Development & Change…

Sensibus Consulting LTD is a small niche consultancy that addresses the complexities of inclusion, Leadership Development, OD, and Change from a relational and intersectional perspective while working towards safe and generative connection and collaboration. We ground our work in an Action Learning & Inquiry methodology while bringing a wide range of different practical approaches modelled on a deep understanding of human & organisational behaviour.

What we do…

We are fascinated by how we relate to each other as humans and by the connections that we share. We bring this passion (and deep understanding) into organisations as a means to address issues that impact on Inclusion – ultimately, this work addresses unconscious bias and power dynamics where we intersect with the socially constructed dualisms of gender, sexuality, race, culture, and religion (to only name a few).

Clients and Client Organisations benefit from our inclusivity work by increasing their awareness of these constructs and how they impact inclusion, thereby enacting fundamental cultural and behavioural change.

Our Leadership Development & Change work is done from the same relational approach and proved to be very effective along all levels of leadership and organisation. Our in-house expertise in e-Learning ensures that we offer clients a comprehensive bespoke blended learning approach while ensuring that information remains relevant. We typically follow a proven strategy of combining high-quality Online Learning, Virtual Webinars, and face to face workshops.

Who & a bit more ‘what’?

We work with individuals and organisations from all industries. What clients have in common is that they want to embark on staff & organisational development initiatives that speaks of a commitment to people and social responsibility.

Organisational Change & Pressure

Change is messy! There is an abundance of literature that talks about the impact of change on organisations and people. Not only is change messy, but it greatly impacts on the people involved by creating stress and pressure. We are able to draw from our experience in highly stressful environments to help people become more resilient in facing the stressors of change, while also helping people make better decisions under pressure. People anticipating to face pressure (or who are already under pressure) benefit from this work by being ready to function at their best when times are at their worst.

The Evidence

The work that we do is based on various theories and approaches. We use these theories as conceptual lenses through which we look at what is going on. This body of theory on which we draw is expanding as we make my journey through this ever-changing world and often show up in the research that Niel is actively engaged with as part of his doctoral studies in organisational change.


Like my development and change work, our coaching practice draws heavily on a variety of conceptual lenses. The most common of the lenses (or theories) have to do with transactional analysis (that looks at the ego state in which we transact), on presence (looks through the lens of Patsy Rodenburg’s work on energy states), and Gestalt psychology (working in the present with what we have now). The relaxed, conversational, and experimental approach is aimed at working with what comes up during the conversation and then exploring the way forward.

My thoughts and...


I have been challenged by fellow researchers and other co-inquirers on why I choose to make Camp Moria in Namibia and why I choose to do my work around belonging in nature there (specifically). I understand the complexity of getting to the farm that is located in the lovely Khomas Hochland of Namibia. To be… Read More

In recent weeks I followed the – very public – fallout from an article that was written by a CEO in South Africa. The article was sexist and celebrated a patriarchal society and male dominance in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). While working in the UK on a Women’s Empowerment initiative, I first learned about… Read More

A couple of months ago I had the privilege to speak to Women across various emerging markets as part of their organisation’s empowerment programme. Of the Women interviewed, 87.5% said that they felt, or were made to feel, that their current practical and leadership skillset provided a significant obstacle to career progression. At the time… Read More

Empowerment & Leadership Development

I have been working with Niel for 6 months on what is the largest consultancy engagement the HR department at BIMA has ever commissioned*.  Niel’s dedication to our project is amazing to witness; he really cares about the quality that he’s delivering for our stakeholders and never shies from putting in the extra effort to make sure that ‘fit for purpose’ becomes ‘brilliant’.  He works alongside us like one of the team and brings his personality and enthusiasm to bear on everything he produces.  Eternally optimistic and ‘can-do’, I’ve come to not just rely on Niel to advise us but trust him to capture the essence of our vision and deliver accordingly.

Change & Transition

Niel supported Rebel Kitchen during a period of transition and gave comfort and reassurance to the team through a variety of different techniques. His inclusive methods allowed us to open up lines of communication cross-departmentally and between managers and their teams. He is always open, great at tailoring each session to suit the needs of the group and keen for feedback to provide the best training and development he can.
