Our Values

Authentic Engagement
We build and sustain business partnerships through integrity, honesty, transparency and confidentiality.

Realism
We will do well what we can do. We will not claim competence we do not possess.

People-Centred
Organisational goals are primary. A business is firstly a business. However, the achievement of corporate goals is fully compatible with the enrichment of people.

Client Growth
We actively seek to minimise client dependency on us through the nurturing of client resourcefulness, i.e. knowledge, skill and process transfer.

Professional Progression
We challenge ourselves to continuously develop, so that we can add further value beyond client requests.

Appreciative Inquiry
We believe that the resolution of most problems, or the grasping of most opportunities, is accelerated by seeking and building on the positive.

Our underlying Philosophy

Our underlying philosophy for the development of leadership excellence is:

  • Each individual can be supported and challenged to perform at their best.
  • Each person builds a unique leadership style on their own individual values, strengths, experiences, knowledge and skills.
  • Through rigorous and progressive self-management, leaders grow their impact and achievement levels by calculated application of their abilities to specific contextual demands.
  • Collective development sessions provide a forum for shared learning, application of behavioural skills networking, and the growth of a community of achievers.
  • Each individual is unique. Skilled, tailored coaching helps people to claim their space, develop the courage to go beyond the present, through an internal focus on intellect and emotion and an external focus on behaviour and situational demands.
  • Leadership development is about building on strengths as well as correcting for weaknesses.
