CHANGE management consultancy

Our people-first approach, expertise in psychology and delivery focused approach makes change management work.

Do you struggle to make change work?

Although 70% of change programmes probably don’t “fail”,  many still fall short of delivering their intended results or cost far more to deliver than planned.

Our change management consultancy will help you to gain the commitment and build the confidence needed to make change work.

Take people on the journey, or let them drive?

Should change be top-down or bottom-up? This is a false distinction in our view, because no matter how change is initiated, people need to be involved in co-creating it AND it needs to be coordinated.

People make change work and they need to be supported and enabled to be successful. We can help you create clarity, engage effectively and build the capability you need to make your change initiatives succeed, wherever they start.

Experts in the psychology of change

Our consultants have lived and breathed change, as consultants and operational leaders, in a range of sectors and industries

We are people people to our core and experts in the psychology of motivation and change. While we believe in the use of structured change management methodology, our value comes from being see beyond the ‘process’.

The dynamics of motivation and emotion

Our change consultancy work is underpinned by a psychological framework (Reversal Theory) that emphasises human adaptability. As a map of motivation and emotions it allows us to truly work with hearts and minds.
