Are you looking to streamline systems and communication processes in your organisation?

Once identified, trouble spots can be addressed.

Are there people in your organisation who are struggling with issues that are affecting their wellbeing? Our counselling service assists people to better understand issues and relationships. Counselling can also help people develop more resourceful, satisfying ways of living, relating and working.

People are looking for new ways of relating and working.

The tide has turned. More and more organisations have realised they can no longer measure their success on numbers alone. According to NZ Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern (Newshub, October, 2017), the market economy has failed our people in recent times. Therefore, the measures have to change, she claims. We believe that the measures must include the wellbeing of people. People make successful organisations and are the most valuable resource of any organisation. Looking after your people is more important now than ever.

Managing Change and Development

‘Relational Leadership’ is one of the key concepts we draw on to work with organisational culture change and development.

Relational leadership involves ‘Just Relationships’ founded on principles of social conscience (justice) and simply (just) a commitment to relate respectfully and appreciatively.

These two approaches are drawn from theoretical foundations that understand people and experience in social and relational ways. They also take power, politics and culture into account at all levels of organisational development.

Understanding people and experience in this contextual way requires reflexivity. This is the ability to take a ‘helicopter’ view on aspects of your organisation. From this overhead perspective it is possible to identify, critique and address areas for change and refinement. Our services and products are all designed to develop reflexivity.
