We take a collaborative, whole
systems approach based on informed inquiry processes and the understanding of organizations being comprised of images
and language. We see language as critical to create meaning, igniting purpose and to coordinating, innovative actions
in the pursuit of a shared vision. This is especially true as networked, virtual teams and organizations increasingly
become the standard way of operating in our knowledge and creative economies.
We understand the power of language and conversations as a means to create appropriate fields of action
and to handle the inevitable breakdowns in organizational life. Powerful conversations foster meaningful communication and
learning to deliver results through trust and effective relationships.
We use frameworks and tools to support leaders, teams and
organizations establish working relationships for effective agreements on issues that matter to them in support of their mission.
We view business organized in two mutually inclusive dimensions:
the Human and the Technical. Our offer provides a balanced perspective between these two dimensions of business.
Based on our experience, companies often rely on increasingly technical solutions
which when implemented end up as only partial solutions to their business issue. It is people that influence the direction
of the company towards its success.
