We help business leaders navigate the an increasingly changing, complex and challenging world.

What makes 8Connect different? 

Most business interpretations of psychology focus on relatively narrow perspectives on human experience.

This oversimplifies rather than makes sense of the complexity.

At 8Connect we combine deep change experience with a framework that is holistic; understanding people in terms of the dynamic interaction between motivations and emotions.

This recognises human adaptability and enables resilience. 

– Because adaptability and resilience are to successfully navigating our complex, changing world.
