Here is a simple model that shows how we add value in each phase of our work: as we get to know our clients’ businesses (Stage 1), as we apply a range of tools that suit them (Stage 2), and as we leave clients with their own internal learning and development capacity increased (Stage 3).

Having worked closely with Martin on several leadership courses, I can say he is one of the best training facilitators I have been on any course with. His natural passion and ability to listen and help people reach their full potential is outstanding. The feedback he gave me was as if he had known me all his life and was really helpful.”

The world is full of customers, clients and opportunities.
Like a weather system, the world is not predictable.
In human systems, the heart matters as much as the head.
The physical body matters as much as the heart.
Knowledge is not absolute - people’s perspectives and contexts matter.
There are different types of knowledge - insights and feelings matter as much as clear-headed reasoning.
People’s stories about what is going on matter more than the ‘objective’ truth.
Relationships, connections and politics matter.
Repeating patterns matter.
Diversity is a business-critical issue, not just an ethical one.
The world is ever-changing, messy and not always as it seems, but it is possible to find moments of clarity when the way forward suddenly becomes clear.
