What we do

Our Services Offering

We believe that the art of collaboration is crucial for succeeding in dealing well with the complex issues faced in today’s business environment and beyond. We invest time and attention to develop close working partnerships with the organisations, their leaders and the individuals we work with. We bring a highly attentive presence, extensive experience and, in the midst of the process, we simultaneously hold several perspectives in every intervention – especially in the difficult moments when change feels tough.

Developing transforming leadership – Action Inquiry and the GLP

CEOs worldwide  have long  known  that a different approach to leadership is required to succeed in the future, but few are sure about how to approach it. To support business leaders, decision makers, consultants and coaches in the area of leadership development, we offer three different Global Leadership Profile (GLP) workshops. All GLP workshops are organised online, so you can join easily from any part of the world!


Our work intentionally integrates and weaves together individual, team and organisational transformation. It is always a collaborative approach whereby we work with the organisation’s leaders, managers and key stakeholders to ensure that we provide very focussed interventions and inputs rather than ‘off-the shelf’ solutions tailor. Our clients appreciate us for our commitment to their vision and aspirations and the disciplined steps that are needed to reach them. We also provide for the unique needs and potential of individuals by supporting their motivation in a parallel journey of development, engagement and ultimately satisfaction.


Our offering to individual development includes taking the GLP with a personal one-hour debrief, immersive workshops and events, individual developmental coaching packages as well as our book Street Smart Awareness and Inquiry-in-Action, featuring 45+ everyday practices of transformation. Our approach to developmental coaching relies on the use of the GLP as a framework for understanding leadership development and is the underpinning way of thinking about and navigating developing maturity.

The Global
Leadership Profile

Our approach to development relies on the use of the GLP as a framework for understanding leadership development and is the underpinning way of thinking about developing maturity. A self-assessment and also the profile tool – the GLP, locates a person’s stage of leadership maturity and is the mechanism for creating a snapshot of a person’s centre of gravity action logic. The action logics encapsulate and describe the eight most characteristic leadership styles of acting and inquiring that adults typically utilise that we call: Opportunist, Diplomat, Expert, Achiever, Redefining, Transforming and Alchemical.

  • Theories, models and external expertise are valued when and if they are beneficial to accelerate development and progress.
  • Working in collaboration and also surfacing and using internal talent to ensure sustainable development after we exit.
