Have you ever wondered how much untapped potential there is in your organisation? And what would happen if you were fully maximising it?
The key to success for individuals, teams, and organisations is in unlocking the limitless potential in people - improving, growing and becoming more effective. It’s a very simple formula which can be difficult to apply.
Our internationally proven training package releases the limitless potential that exists inside everyone and helps create sustainable, positive behavioural change.
"Taking care of your health, emotional wellbeing and safety is just as important as any career move you may ever make."
Health and safety traditionally has focused on only the safety part, where policies and procedures have been created to keep people from physically hurting themselves in the work place. It is, however, more complicated than that if we are wanting to create a workforce where everybody leaves work each day in the same condition they arrived in, if not better. By taking a whole person approach we are able to better protect ourselves and each other at work from any sort of harm be it physical, emotional or psychological.
We believe that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a form of intelligence that is the key to having healthier, happier and safe employees. If I am aware of my inner thoughts and feelings, I have more power over my behaviour and, in turn, my health wellbeing and safety. This gives you the control as opposed to handing over that control to an organisation. Who would you trust the most to take care of you?
“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”
John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy was the youngest man ever to be elected President of the United States. An officer of the US Navy, Kennedy’s understanding of effort and courage was tested when he led the survivors of his rammed and sunk PT boat to safety through perilous waters.
However, Kennedy had the wisdom to realise the value of purpose and clarity of direction. During his time as President, John F Kennedy set about realising the clear direction and vision he had articulated during his campaign.
Today’s economic conditions demand a focus on excellence: mediocrity is not sustainable and to secure their future, organisations need a sound strategic plan and a clear direction.
We can help your business develop a set of tools that identifies, creates and executes your vision. We enable people to rise above business-as-usual to explore new ideas, set their direction and then implement it for greater productivity and better business results.
“A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.”
People are the unmistakable creators of the culture of an organisation or business. And Ghandi – one of the foremost political and spiritual leaders of his time – knew that culture is defined by the innermost thoughts and beliefs of people.
In business, we define culture as being the sum of an organisation’s goals, values and behaviours. Simply – what we aim for, what we believe and how we act add up to create the living and breathing culture of an organisation.
Talk to us whether you are looking to establish an organisational culture or need to align your culture to your ideal direction.
“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.” Nelson Mandela
There was no greater leader, or human being, than Nelson Mandela. He lived by a few basic principles that he took through his life. He was humble, firm, clear and determined. All the traits of an inspirational leader.
But he kept learning and developing as a leader and readily admitted his mistakes. One of the keys to being a great leader is to recognise your limitless potential and keep growing. When you do this, your potential will be released, along with those around you.

“The productivity of a work group seems to depend on how the group members see their own goals in relation to the goals of the organization.”
Research shows that there is up to 30% untapped productivity residing in most businesses and organisations. This relates to the discretionary energy that people can apply to their lives and work – if they choose to do so. This extra application of effort is what lifts an organisation’s performance from business as usual, into high performance.
No matter what technology, technical innovation or data your business relies on for its success – it is your people who drive your organisation. Aligning each individual’s motivation to the goals of an organisation not only leads to improved productivity and better business results, it can create more collaborative workplaces, lower turnover, and a happier, more engaged workforce.
Talk to us about how to improve productivity and individual motivation.
“A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency.”
President Barack Obama
For people to have confidence in being accountable, they need to feel comfortable and courageous enough to do so. This comfort comes from a confidence in telling the truth within an organisation or business.
Many of the truly great leaders of our times have possessed the courage to stand up for what they believed was right, standing firm in roles that required them to be highly accountable.
Achieving excellence and high performing business results requires accountability from people at each level of an organisation. With each person taking responsibility for their part, the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts.
In our programmes, we link accountability with people’s intrinsic motivations, and then help them see how their individual motivation links to organisational goals.
Talk to us about how to instil greater accountability and ownership into your organisation today.
“True collaboration begins with the individua?l.”
Tamm and Luyet
Conflict – in some form – has long been recognised as a part of life and business. Collaboration has become the contemporary core business skill that is the antidote to conflict, and the key to successfully managing relationships, in life and work.
Long-term collaborative organisations consistently outperform organisations that waste energy and resources on conflict, showing dramatically better results across income, profit, employee retention and expansion than their non-collaborative competition.
But what is true collaboration, and how do we achieve it? Our programmes take you far beyond traditional negotiating and conflict management methods, developing skills that allow people to effectively manage relationships, negotiate deals, build alliances and form partnerships.
Talk to us about our practical techniques that will give you the edge in moving beyond conflict and into collaboration.
“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”
Clarity of purpose is central to the success of any team. Bringing a team of individuals together – each with their own viewpoints and understandings – so that each person can work at their potential towards the joint outcome or goal is an objective for every leader.
Our team identity programmes are custom designed for each team we work with. Starting with your business objectives our programmes develop a pathway to team success, using profiling tools to build understanding of each individual’s strengths as the foundation on which the team’s identity is built.
Talk to us about how you can build a team identity that leads you to successful performance.
“Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”
Irish writer Oscar Wilde knew better than many the struggle involved with openly being his true self. Despite the significant changes since Wilde’s Victorian era, confidence being our true selves in all areas of modern life can still be a challenge.
Entry into the ‘Imagination age,’ brings increasing demand for people to contribute not only their mind and body to their jobs, but their inherent ‘x factor’ where creativity and true motivation.
This ‘x factor’ or discretionary energy lives at the emotional level. Neuroscience studies show that the Limbic brain manages emotions and emotions play a central role in alertness, attention, creativity, decision making and execution. These can be experienced either as positive or negative feelings in the body. Feelings drive our behaviour, so ultimately it is emotion that guides every decision we make.
Thus, quality decision making by individuals, teams and organisations relies on people feeling positive, confident and valued both in their work and as individuals.
Positive self concept and high self-esteem are the key to increasing productivity and quality of the workplace. Because self-esteem is at the heart of all relationships and productivity inside organisations, creating workplace environments where people feel good about themselves and their work has become an essential ingredient of business success.
Talk to us about improving your business results by improving the self-esteem of your people.
“If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
In the busy-ness of business, taking the time to create a team with a united purpose and shared vision is easier said than done. With different personalities and skills sets establishing a vision – that shared longing for the immensity of the sea – may seem a challenge.
Often, teams with an overriding focus on relationships outside of the team find themselves with a lack of unity inside the team. This may be because they operate independently rather than interdependently and forget that the team also needs time to connect.
Whatever your situation, our programmes to build team unity can help. Programmes can include:
