Organisations today face unprecedented and rapid change. From retrenchments to restructuring as well as mergers and acquisitions, managers are having to deal with enormous anxiety that often accompanies change. While the rational processes that happen in the board rooms are important for the successful management of change, it is the management of the emotional processes that determine whether the success of the change process. We work with lenses that assist change managers to understand the underlying emotional elements of the change process and thereby work to minimize their disruptive effects.

Increased activity does not necessarily translate into effectiveness. Indeed one of the signs of stuck organisational systems is hyperactivity. Efficiency also does not always lead to more effectiveness. Using well tested methodologies like the viable systems model by Stafford Beer, we work with organisational leaders to diagnose the system for viability and for effectiveness. Critical to this process is a clear understanding and articulation of the group’s core purpose and then aligning the strategy to this purpose.

How do I get my team to work together towards high performance? Managers often make the assumption that putting star performers together into a group will result in high performance teams. A casual observance of national soccer teams for example will reveal that many times, even with star performers, the group does not necessarily become a high performer. Effective team performance happens when the group is clear and committed on goals, roles, processes and relationships as well as the wider systemic elements. Working with the team performance model, we facilitate processes for diagnosing the team dynamics and working towards a high performance team.

One of the challenges of the modern world of work especially with the use of teams is the emergence of silo thinking and practices. It is not uncommon then to find teams in the same organisation working in isolation and even at times competing with each other to the detriment of the overall business. Systems thinking approaches enable the diagnosis of the working environment to identify silos and also provides tested methodologies for enabling collaboration and synergy. Our processes also assist managers to tap into the partnerships for innovation and growth.

Organisations are starting to learn that sustainability can be a key driver of competitive advantage. Sustainability then ceases to become a burden on the bottom line and becomes the central driving force of the strategy of the business. Sustainability then also ceases to be what an organisation does and instead becomes the core of an organisation’s identity. We work with organisations across all sectors to evaluate their strategy and practices in line with sustainability in relation to the market place, workplace, community and environment. We also work with managers at all levels to integrate sustainability practices in all the processes of their organisation’s value chain.
