Systems Thinking

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.

[/column_grid_4][column_grid_8]“I used to be more future-oriented: rigorous planning, talking of sustainable change, imagining that the changes, I and others, were involved in would endure. I now see that changes cannot be “built in”; we and the world are too complex. The quality of the future we want has to be present in the here and now. The key to creating the future is a shift in our being and how we act, now. As you start on the way, the way appears: one meeting, one conversation, one decision at a time. This has been a process of reconsidering, not a single moment of insight.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

Moving to Asia caused me to reconsider many things in my life, from what I held as true about the world to what my contribution to the world could be. I decided to shift to coaching and facilitation and undertook a series of studies that opened my eyes to new ways of seeing people and systems and how I can contribute to them.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

A significant number of leaders we meet are interested in a new way of organising: one that is centred on a larger and more compelling sense of purpose than just meeting the numbers, which liberates human potential and treats people as whole human beings not just human resources. We partner with these leaders to steward […]

A Unique combination of Oshry Systemic Frameworks and Mindfulness

An opportunity to both practice mindfulness as well as to enter into an unusually powerful learning experience about our organisations’ dynamics (Oshry) is a rare experience – in fact it might well be unique. The ‘Resilient Leadership for Turbulent Times’ workshop that I attended last month certainly offered much to savour, for mind and for […]

The failure of the England football team is systemic

Whether you like football or not, it’s hard to witness the nation’s deflated spirit here in London after England went out of the World Cup in the first round.  And the papers on Monday were speculating whether this means the end of the road for England manager Roy Hodgson.  It reminds us of a similar […]

Putting the challenge into context

A colleague of mine was chatting about the Longitude Prize that was launched on the BBC last week.  The competition is to commemorate 300 years since the first challenge was set (and consequently won by gruff Yorkshire clockmaker John Harrison with his stable marine chronometers) and the prize of £10 million will be awarded to […]
