OD deals with the whole organisation, including the environment it is immersed in.
Understanding the interdependencies that exist within each part, with the objective of optimising the climate, culture, group dynamics and strategies to achieve peak performance and success.
The humanistic factors within an organisation are what makes the difference. Allowing your people to function as humans, to develop their full potential and increase their level of ownership will in turn increase overall organisational performance and unlock the potential it has.
We work with you and your organisation to align organisational vision, empower your people, increase communication and interaction, and help to create an environment where peak performance thrives.
Leadership is considered the greatest single influence on organisational performance, and consistent leadership considered the most important trait in a leader.
We firmly believe that leaders are made, not born, and also accept that some people are born with more natural talent than others. Leadership is an art and a skill that can be acquired and fine tuned.
We help you to develop the right style of leadership that suits you and your organisation, providing you with greater leadership skills that will allow you to evolve and adapt to the environment in this ever changing World.
Culture is abstract. It is the collection of beliefs, customs and social behaviours of a collection of people.
The default of many cultures is to try and change behaviours through force, coercion, punishment and rewards.
In order to have a lasting change of behaviour, we must seek to understand the underlying beliefs and attitudes which are driving the behaviours.
You don't change the culture, you change the underlying behaviours, attitudes and actions, and then culture emerges.
We work with you to understand the psychology behind behaviour, how to identify patterns, and how to create a system for real change that will help you to develop your ideal organisational culture.
Communication is more than what we say, we know that. Right?
So why are we not getting the results that we want?
We believe that most people these days understand that communication is key and it is more than what we say. We also believe that most people communicate in an unconscious incompetent state. They know that communication matters, they just don't know what makes it matter so much and how they can improve their own capability.
We work alongside your organisation to understand the barriers to effective communication specific to your environment so that we can offer practical tools and techniques that will enhance individual and organisational communication.
The definition of strategy is not simple, it has a number of definitions and as Rumelt suggests;
'there is no concept more muddled in business as strategy'.
Strategic frameworks guide the day to day running of any organisation. Unifying and aligning frameworks to reality is key to success.
The most important part about strategy is the implementation, and this is often where organisations fall foul due to any number of causes.
We work alongside your leadership team to analyse, design and develop your strategic frameworks. Most importantly, we will help you take action and implement your strategy throughout your organisation.
Innovate or die.
Organisations need to create an environment that encourages and empowers everyone to be innovators.
If you are not innovating, then you are dying. The World is in a constant state of evolution and if you are not maintaining or leading then customers will go elsewhere. This is the freedom that exists in the internet age.
Any organisation can be innovative, intent is the key. Employees are the main innovators within any organisation, let them be creative and use their skills to drive the organisation forward.
Innovation is a skill, and any skill can be learnt. We assist you to build an innovation culture through setting the vision from the leadership, empowering all employees and assisting management to create an innovation environment for the organisation to thrive.
