RESULTS THROUGH CULTURE – LEADING THROUGH THE BLUE ZONE

Our work is to guide leaders, teams and organisations through the blue zone – the journey between their stated Strategic Intent and realisation of that Intent.

We believe that CLARITY, CONFIDENCE, COURAGE, CURATION and CLIMATE are key cultural enablers of having a strong culture that makes it possible for organisations to achieve their Strategic Intent when, how and with whom they need to.

Left unattended, this blue zone of human dynamics, ways of working and leadership or behavioral norms can cause systemic disengagement and dissatisfaction, angst and pain; possibly preventing the effective achievement of performance outcomes and objectives. The experiences created, not just for customers, but also leaders, teams and individuals is shaped by how organisations manage their way through this blue zone.

We help organisations gain clarity of where they are going, where they need to be and how they will achieve their Strategic Intent.

THE CULTURE BAROMETER

The Culture Barometer helps you understand your culture and ways of working. The process and tools of The Culture Barometer help to highlight your areas of cultural strength to leverage in achieving your Strategic Intent. They also help to unearth your cultural risk areas or shadows – the areas where your organisational norms, culture and operational processes may not be aligned with your desired outcomes.

The findings and recommendations put forward in The Culture Barometer report will give you a clear sense of how where you building a strong culture and demonstrating the indicators of these enablers on a day to day basis and where you may need to put some energy into shifting your cultural paradigms to ensure you are in a better position to achieve your Strategic Intent.

We can facilitate your leaders and teams in the creation of a roadmap and help diagnose and understand your degree of readiness for cultural changes and new ways of working. We build strategies and solutions that are human centered and encourage shared commitment.

UNLEASHING BRILLIANCE

Through training, coaching and facilitation we work with you to build the capability and confidence of your leaders and teams so you can UNLEASH their BRILLIANCE through co-creation.

Our diagnostic, learning, facilitation, coaching and advisory services revolve around the desire to see organisations unleash their potential and UNLEASHING BRILLIANCE through shared commitment and accountability to achieving the organisations Strategic Intent, specifically we work with you to drive toward three key outcomes: CULTURAL BRILLIANCE, LEADER BRILLIANCE AND COLLECTIVE BRILLIANCE. We lead you through 4 keystages

1. DISCOVERY

2. DISCERNMENT & DESIGN

3. DESIRE & DIALOGUE and

4. DIFFUSION

All of which is enabled by our CULTURAL ENABLERS: CLARITY, CONFIDENCE, COURAGE, CURATION AND CLIMATE

We are inspired when leaders lead authentically, when they transparently say what they will do and courageously do what they say they would. Leaders who are willing to learn more about the challenges and opportunities that exist within their organisations are courageous. When they are able to see the value of leading their teams to creatively solve these challenges; that gives us goosebumps! We want more of that and we are on a mission to make it a reality everywhere we work. At times boards, executives and people leaders can be heard to say “people are our most important asset” or “our customer needs are a priority to us”. These statements are said but at times difficult to achieve or demonstrate when it comes to leading organisations through change. We are committed to working alongside leaders who want to realise their human centered intentions.

Our work is driven by a belief that a human centered approach:

• increases engagement of internal and external stakeholders

• involves those required to make a change in the definition of success and the requirements of change

• places Boards, Executives and People leaders in a better position to lead the achievement of results with and through their people

• unleashes the potential of our teams and encourages a higher degree of commitment and engagement in the achievement of your Strategic Intent.

We believe that playing an infinite game when it comes to leading transformation can fundamentally shift the outcomes of that transformation. The program and delivery outcomes may be finite but culture, leadership and organisational results must be led with a longer term vision in mind. We guide the development of infinite leadership strategies and activities in the midst of finite timelines, metrics and program outcomes.
