YOU ALREADY KNOW . . . Your people hold the key to success. They are wired to care, to create, to contribute in astonishing ways. Harnessing this capacity would transform the impact of your organization.
WHAT IF . . . You could liberate, and never constrain, this capacity? You could use this capacity to attend to your triple bottom line?
— Jon Symes

Why Humans?

Capable of providing a spark of genius no automation can ever surplant. And able to thwart the best-laid plans and processes, humans remain the heart of your organization.

At our best fabulous, sometimes fallible, each in our own ways, frankly strange. Learning how to harness our best, mitigate our weaknesses and navigate our differences become key to releasing the full humanity of the people who staff our organization.

When the whole human is welcome at work we have a force of leadership like no other, directing their energy to transforming not only your success, but the entire impact of your organization in the world. 

Working with Humans

This approach provides you with the conditions of contribution that bring the whole human contribution into play

  • new levels of engagement with your mission

  • creative breakout to unimagined new possibilities
  • Results = Profit delivered + Planet protected + People honored
In my view the successful companies of the future will be those that integrate business and employees’ personal values. The best people want to do work that contributes to society with a company whose values they share, where their actions count and their views matter.

— Jeroen van der Veer, Committee of Managing Directors (Shell)

Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
— Stephen Covey

Your Needs

Is your organisation trapped in a profit-focused bubble that is only driving short-term results?

Maybe it’s talent; you’re struggling to attract the best people, failing to engage them fully or losing them to other ventures. Or perhaps you simply feel that your employees’ hearts aren’t in the job.

And what about people and planet - are these goals neglected?
