Why are we here?
Our passion is organisational development, we know that one size definitely does not fit all and so don’t have any standard answers, approaches or programmes. Each project, like each client is a “one off”
We pride ourselves on working collaboratively with clients at every stage of a project. We will invest our own time learning what is fundamentally important to you and your organisation and the challenges which you are experiencing.
As a result, we always take great care to establish the real outcomes that you need to achieve before proposing a specifically tailored course of action.
Who do we work with and what do we do?
Our approach works best with ambitious organisations who want to move up to the next level and/or professionalise the way they and their people function.
We have experience of generating and embedding meaningful improvements across a wide range of sectors from manufacturing, education, service and finance through to charities and local authorities. We know that each organisation brings its own unique personality, context and challenges and enjoy getting to know what these are in order to generate long term business performance improvements.
Our work is mainly but not exclusively, with the leaders and managers within client organisations. Below are a few examples of the type of projects we have successfully undertaken:
- Designing and delivering a series of interlinked training programmes tailored specifically to establish consistent people management capabilities in the First Line Manager, Middle Manager and Senior Manager levels of a large organisation
- Facilitating workshops to create a strong, positive, cohesive team dynamic within a newly assembled strategic leadership team. This included the use of the highly effective Team Management Profiling tool © Margerison and McCann
- Supporting a large manufacturing organisation to implement a significant culture change project across its two primary sites. This involved working with all levels of management across both sites using a series of targeted workshops and events.
- Working with a digital SME organisation to re-establish the effective application of self managing teams across the whole business.
- Executive coaching with existing and aspirational strategic leaders including M.D’s and Principals and Chairs.
To ensure that we are able to offer the most comprehensive support to clients we are licensed to use a range of instruments which include; Team Management Profile, Organisational Culture Inventory, Pxt Select and Checkpoint 360.
