Your journey starts here. We work with you to unpack your DNA, develop a strategy that’s right for you and deliver real results that stick in Safety, Mental Health and People & Performance.
How We Work with You
Our approach is designed to ensure success is sustained long after we’ve left the scene. If it’s not sustained, it’s not successful. Achieving sustainable results requires an ability to know exactly where to tap by asking penetrating questions, unpacking blind spots and developing powerful strategies. It requires transparency and real partnership.
Step 1. Assess
Whether it is safety, mental health or leadership, understanding your current state is key. This starts with measuring the current performance, identifying strengths and weaknesses, hot spots and cold spots. Hot spots provide the greatest leverage for improvement. Cold spots provide insight into opportunities for resource re-allocation or shared learning.
Step 2. Plan & Design
Customising a solution that is a match for your business needs takes careful planning and design. We take a big picture approach and consider governance, past initiatives, current skills, internal capability, agreed measures for success, communication, and a workplace engagement campaign.
Step 3. Implement
Once we’ve identified your hot spots, we work with you to develop base-line solutions to deliver accelerated improvement results and sustained success. This may involve strategic advice, development of leaders and employees, coaching, providing tools and online support and embedding learnings into day-to-day activities.
Step 4. Sustain & Thrive
We believe that real success is determined by your ability to sustain initial success achieved, and your ability to independently generate continuous and never-ending improvement. We work with you to develop your internal capability to influence your culture in a way that is alive, dynamic and improving.
A New Paradigm
We aim to shift thinking, re-define what’s possible and empower people to move towards a ‘Growth Mindset’. This mindset is underpinned by a fundamental belief that a growth mindset is fundamental to success. Safety, mental health and leadership typically receive increased attention only when there is a problem or ‘something needs to be fixed’. This creates a survival mindset within the business. Key to transformation is mobilising the head, heart, and gut. This requires a new way of thinking, one that values growth as the driver rather than survival.
2° Shift Concept
We believe transformational change is the result of a series of individual 2° shifts that people make throughout the organisation. These may be shifts in strategy, direction, priorities, beliefs, attitudes or behaviour. What is important is that these shifts are genuinely owned at an individual level. When coaching individuals and teams, we actively seek to help people define meaningful and challenging 2° shifts. As a result, new neural connections are created which drive empowering beliefs and breakthrough behaviours.
Whilst a 2° shift may not seem much, it has a significant impact when sustained over time. Whether it be aviation, climate change, or even wine making, a change by two degrees creates a completely different outcome. We know that for human beings, small changes are more likely to stick as opposed to larger changes that are often too difficult to get off the ground or are hard to sustain.
Our 2° shift methodology requires each individual, regardless of role, to define a challenge in a specific area to cause a result in. This will generally focus on changing a belief, attitude or a behaviour and may relate to improving communication, mindset, being more resilient and effective, demonstrating care or building stronger relationships in order to increase their influence with others and contribute to improving the culture. Importantly, the defined challenge aims to deliver maximum leverage with relatively small efforts and needs to meet a set of predefined criteria. Participants can be coached through the process to confront barriers and cause real personal breakthroughs.
Imagine what your organisation could look like if everyone applied a 2° shift that focused on transforming safety, mental health or leadership.
