Finding purpose, engagement and success in a complex world

As organizations become more complex, faster moving and more technology enabled we need people to engage at a higher level with their work and with the culture and values of their organizations.

Our programs help individuals find their purpose and give them the tools to engage themselves at work.

  • Finding purpose – what brings meaning to your life and work, and how can you find more of this in your job
  • Owning your own engagement – techniques for you to make your tasks, relationships and mindset at work more engaging
  • Connecting to your organization’s purpose – find more meaning and engagement within your organization culture

Download the program overview above to find out more about our approach to finding purpose, engagement and meaning at work to improve employee engagement, performance and wellbeing.

We also offer programs specific to finding success in a complex agile and digital environment

  • Failing fast and managing risk – using iterative working and a Minimal Viable Product approach to accelerate learning, experimentation and customer involvement.
  • Leading for Speed – lean and agile principles in action – cutting out unnecessary work to meet, decide and deliver faster.
  • Autonomous teams and shared and emergent leadership – building and supporting autonomous teams and enabling distributed leadership to emerge.
  • Moving from hierarchy to networks and influence – developing the skills to build, improve and activate your network to get things done and influence without authority.
  • Accelerating technology adoption – how to speed up the way different groups of people adopt new tools and adapt your way of working to the opportunities that technology brings.

You can select just the topics you need right now and our purpose and engagement programs can also be tailored to your corporate culture or adapted to be run by your own people.

In a complex and fast moving world where technology and other factors drive high levels of change, the skills that will be most valuable are the deeply human ones that can’t be automated.

According to Gallup only 20% of people are engaged at work, 20% are actively disengaged and 60% are “emotionally detached”

From a company perspective, highly engaged people lead to increased productivity, better wellbeing, more innovation and higher levels of retention.

Enabling engagement is a leadership problem, but low engagement is also a disaster for human potential and happiness.

Most of us spend 40% or our waking hours at work for around 40 years. If you are not happy at work then you have no chance of  a happy and fulfilled life.

Our approach is to empower everyone with the tools to find their own purpose and engagement at work and to thrive in a complex virtual, hybrid, matrixed, agile and digital world of work.
