We support our clients and their stakeholders to press pause, reconsider the future they want and help build the awareness and capacity to get there. Everything we do or say is an invitation to reconsider the present and to consider new futures.

Living Life on Purpose

Steven Covey (in his less well known book, “First Things First”) asks the question: “Do you live your life by the clock or by the compass?” For now I will put aside the issues arising from “busyness and time focus” implied by the clock metaphor (a future blog) and focus on the compass. The request […]

“I always knew that none of us is as smart as all of us. I built my value propositions around that key idea and its practical implications for organisation design, innovation, culture change, communities of practice, and just about any client assignment that I worked on. After reconsidering the idea, I don’t think that collective […]

“I started my career fascinated by technology and how that could revolutionise business. I then became fascinated to explore why so many projects failed! The crucial “missing” was often the people. So I started to reconsider what was needed for success and herein began my journey of self-development for the sake of enabling me to […]

“My life has been a fascinating journey thanks to re-evaluating and reconsidering my priorities, beliefs and ideas a number of times during significant life transitions.  As I move more and more towards wholeness, I keep rediscovering my life’s evolutionary purpose. From wanting to make the world a better place by being a peace activist, then […]

“I started my working life in large organisations and appreciated the intelligence, complexity and creativity I found around me. However, after a number of years I began to feel that the full strengths and potential of many of the members of these systems – including my own – were not being used. I reconsidered what […]

Where does Spirituality meet Leadership?

There’s a crisis in many modern organisations:  Who are they serving? What is their essence? How should they operate? This week reveals the most shocking analysis of how a major ‘public service’, South Yorkshire police, not only systematically covered up, for 27 years, its culpability in the deaths of 96 football fans, but how it […]

However, feeling rather limited by the possibilities for growth, connection and meaning I embarked on long and at times difficult journey of reconsidering who I am and what my real work is in the world. I now love supporting others on such journeys and witnessing the transformative effects of deep inquiry at the individual, team, organisational and community scales.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

At the level of the individual I hear many common stories and visions among many different people. As a collective I find it fascinating that we appear largely unable to realise these visions and create futures we individually seem to want. I am constantly reconsidering the approaches and thinking related to this ‘individual-group’ connection.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

It comes from acquiring more knowledge and skills and from experiential learning, finding the leader within, a focus on purpose/strategy and being able to see the systems we work in through the eyes of varied stakeholders. I believe there is massive business and societal benefit from a commitment to lifelong learning and development and working in partnership on complex challenges at the systemic and the organisational level.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

Working with leaders from all backgrounds led me toreconsider my assumptions. I realised that leaders who follow models slavishly will not achieve the followership they seek. Leadership starts with “know thyself”. Great leaders know and show their passions, their deeply held values, and their individual style and I am passionate about taking people on this journey.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

Over the years, as life circumstances changed, I constantly considered what ‘meaningful work’ means for me. What previously gave me meaning, working on global, macro issues, now had to share the space with new, micro issues such as my family. My new life mix catalysed a profound change. I reconsideredsuccess. Not just as an idea, or a financial measurement, but as a practice using ‘Right Livelihood’. I define this as ‘meaningful, self-sustaining work on behalf of people and planet’. I believe that if we all defined success in this way, then we stand a chance of creating a sustainable future for our children’s children.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]
