Generate Ideas By Challenging
We promise to stretch your thinking about what’s possible and how to get there. We bring fresh eyes, objectivity and our experience of what works. We push your boundaries, whether you’re structuring for growth or solving community issues. We find new strategic options, always with an eye on practical implementation. We insist on working with good data to produce informed decisions. Discussions are always lively, robust and challenging. We create a safe space that gives people permission to speak their mind and think outside their comfort zone.
Build Commitment By Engaging
We know how important it is to nurture and bring people along on the journey so they are ready to do things differently. We don’t seek consensus – we drive toward good decisions. We understand new directions are only useful if they are within the capability of the organisation to implement. We find solutions that are solid in fact and in logic. We help people commit, even when required actions are unfamiliar or uncomfortable.
Make Ideas Happen With A Clear Road Map
From the outset, and every step along the way, we create a clear road map so that you can be focused on the next action. Our structured and disciplined discussions will make productive use of your time, and ensure that you have the ‘big picture’ clear. From there, you can clearly explain the rationale for changes and tough decisions. We give you a clear call to action for your teams. We make sure you know what to do differently on Monday.
Navigate The Hard Decisions Together
We work alongside you to navigate new ways of operating. We will be there to start new conversations and help make decisions differently. We don’t do it to you; we don’t do it for you. We work with you and your team to stay focused and create the confidence that gets change implemented. We help you overcome the inertia of the current way of operating by making sure that all your early actions send the message of change to the organisation.
Keep Strategies Relevant With Readily Available Performance Data
After decades of watching organisations deliver, like you, we know that accurate, timely performance reporting is crucial. Real-time reporting allows your leadership team to proactively manage performance across organisations, departments, teams and individuals.
If you like, using specialized software, we can set you up so it is easy to track your strategy and operations. It’s our way of helping you to make the strategy active and relevant. You won’t need to collate, update or worry about document versions. Your staff directly report against the strategy so it is absolutely clear what they do each day and which priorities they are working on. With a click you can produce a report for a particular individual, a department, a strand of the strategy, or a summary for the Board.
Make Strategies Stick With Positive Conversations
Many organisations struggle to move performance reporting beyond compliance. For success, it needs to become a lever for strategic change. We help you ensure that transparency about performance, captured in your reporting system, also translates into the conversations between managers and individuals. We’ll help you acknowledge and reward your best performers and identify those who require more support. We’ll help you create more focus and less drama in everyone’s day, unlocking their capability and confidence for more productive and powerful work.
