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 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.
