Our approach, our values,  why we do this work and who we are

Wide but shorter still

Our approach

If you are looking for a bespoke process to help you get the best out of yourself and your business, then read on:

We are big fans of Socrates – you have all the answers inside of yourself for your approach to any business or personal challenge.

We are also big fans of our clients – we witness and facilitate their pure genius.

We have been trained to tell the truth and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. Remember the story  of “The Emperor’s New Clothes“?

We will hold you to account, helping you be rigorous with your word

We help you think resourcefully and put your best into your business dealings

You have your own unique processes and needs.  We are responsive coaches, who dance with whatever is current on your plate, moving you forward, bringing your best self to your business game.  We don’t paint-by-numbers, process driven fixed content.  It’s all about you.

We will help you avoid staleness and overwhelm in your business…and in your life.

Expect us to challenge you and get you to stretch.

Our values


You don’t care how much we know until you know how much we care. We respect and care for our client’s abilities, current state, resourcefulness and vision for their successful future.

Deliver clarity

Clarity leads you to power, action and innovation. We always seek clarity for our clients.

Test and measure

Measuring progress is key to building momentum in business – We constantly measure everything we build capacity in

Regular planning

The key to maintaining focus in short sharp 90 day bursts of energy, resources and activity. We manage and maintain the rhythm & practice of regular planning and reflection.

Have the courage to tell the truth

When everyone else is being polite or simply withholding the truth, we have the courage to tell the truth. You will hear from us, not what you want to hear, but what is important for you to hear.

Dig Deep

Whenever the opportunity to add value by digging deeper occurs; our greatest priority in that moment is to deliver that value.

 Maintain Client Balance

Business people in overwhelm are not resourceful, don’t think properly and don’t make sound decisions in any part of their lives. We keep our clients out of mental states of overwhelm and encourage them to maintain resourceful emotional and thinking states.

Our vision

Our purpose

Unleashing clear thinking, strategy and execution, achieving inspiring goals.
