Change Strategy and Advice
Even the most skilled and experienced leaders can feel uncertain of the way ahead when facing the need for change. So we provide a confidential space for leaders to explore their change dilemmas and to access our experience and knowledge as a way of supporting wise steps forward.
How we work
Our approach is to listen carefully and to ask good questions in order to clarify the context and issues in play.
Sometimes this is all a leader needs!
When invited, we can also share stories of similar situations we’ve worked in, along with some change frameworks and tools that may be appropriate given the situation being described.
Sometimes these models are drawn from ‘Making Sense of Change Management‘ – now in its 4th Edition – co-authored by Co-Founder, Esther Cameron.
Our skill lies in being highly sensitive to the range of issues in play, seeing these at a whole system level, and then tailoring our advice and support to both the specific context and individual need.

How to get started
- Simply get in touch and set up an initial 45 minute consultation to clarify your potential need and test the chemistry!
- Ask us to put you in touch with a recent client, who can explain the sort of help s/he has received and what sort of value this offered
- Consider how useful it might be to set up some form of personalised ‘advisory partnership’ to advise, support and accompany you through the twists and turns of the change process you are embarked on
