- We care about what we do and who we work with. Our priority is to help our clients achieve
and in doing this we also hope to make a wider social contribution. We are
committed to working
with people and organisations seeking to provide excellent public or customer services,
social or environmental benefits.
Unlike many consultants we purposefully work across the voluntary, public,
and private sectors.
Whilst recognizing the distinctive features of each we
believe that cross-pollination of ideas, values
and business practice
benefits all, particularly as boundaries between sectors become ever
fluid with not-for-profit organisations increasingly seeking to operate more
private companies striving to develop more social and
environmentally responsible practice.
We use the image of the sea as a metaphor for change.
Like the sea, change happens at many
levels; it can be on the surface where we see the most
dramatic waves, or it can
be in deep waters where currents and movement are more subtle,
generating the patterns for
surface conditions elsewhere.
Our consultants have the skills and experience to work at surface and
deeper levels of change,
adapting tools and techniques from the business
world, humanistic and social psychology as each situation demands.
We take a systemic approach that links the current project or situation
wider environment and conditions.
This promotes sustainable change and development rather than quick fixes.
A key to sustainable change is building individual and organisational capacity throughout
consultancy process, enabling change to continue once consultants have gone.
Our highly successful collaborative approach to working with clients, not simply for
them, encourages organisational ownership, shared learning and development of expertise.
