Our unique approach to the art + science of skilful conversations.

Why art?

Creative approaches are essential for organisations to evolve and flourish in a rapidly changing global landscape.

Fast-paced change is the new normal. To roll with the punches of the times, and respond to exploding opportunities, organisations need to facilitate creative and original thought. Innovation is not just a word. The questions keep changing, and organisations need to keep responding to them in fresh and fluid ways. High quality conversations, that draw on the artfulness of human connection, are able to feed and grow the organisation’s vision, and catalyse:

• creative solutions
• creative products
• creative ways of working together
• creative market approaches
• creative work spaces

Why science?

Rigorous, evidence-based, brain-based approaches ensure that organisations don’t waste time or money on interventions that don’t work.

Each employee has a brain. In fact organisations are crawling with brains. Yet, few organisations leverage what neuroscience has to teach about creating environments in which brains can thrive. An exploding body of neuroscientific discovery provides concrete tools that individuals and teams can use to engage their brains more effectively. We use evidence-based development processes to:

• create environments where brains can function optimally
• engage a ‘towards’ response for focus and engagement
• create conditions that allow clear and original thinking
• facilitate spaces where brains are able to connect and collaborate
• embed new neural pathways through action

Why conversations?

Hundreds of conversations take place in every organisation every day; change the conversations, change the organisation.

Skilful conversations are the key to unlocking the potential that already exists in an organisation as it evolves in a rapidly changing world. They allow unique, context-appropriate solutions to emerge. One-on-one, in teams, and systemically across the organisation, those who engage in high quality conversations:

• see people as people, not as resources
• treat brains so that they open up to possibility, rather than close down to threat
• appreciate the artfulness of human connection
• facilitate insight that leads to engaged action and change
• engender a sense of ownership and accountability
• lead to environments where thriving individuals can build thriving organisations

So how do we make things happen?
