A Unique approach
Would you want to work with us?
If you are someone who works in or with organizations, loves life and really wants to make a difference, then we may be a good fit for each other. If you want to go beyond run of the mill training and coaching programs; if you want to explore your own capacity to grow and develop more meaningful and sustainable relationships; if you want to perform well beyond where you are now then please keep reading. If you'd like to get better at working with, or become unafraid of chaos and conflict; if you are curious and inquisitive about what you see and experience in your work and think maybe there are better more effective ways to do this, and you're prepared to experiment with being different and challenging yourself and others, then we believe we have something for you.
Who are we?
We're a group of five very different individuals; we all love life and really, really want to make a difference. We have a wealth of organisational experience, through which we have discovered the joy and paradox of fitting in by being different. We are all committed to a Gestalt approach in our work and lives, and through Gestalt we have all come to enjoy working and experimenting with chaos, complexity, ambiguity, uncertainty and to cherish the novelty and excitement of the unfolding moment.
We celebrate our differences and diversity and take delight in finding ways to connect and bond in creative and often unexpected ways. We believe our individual uniqueness and diversity enables us to work and intervene in creative ways to bring about sustainable change.
We see organisations as vibrant networks of human relationships where the quality of the relationships will determine the performance of individuals, teams and the whole organisation. Everything we do, from individual leadership coaching to large-scale interventions, impacts the organisational system, mainly through unblocking things and helping people, teams and organisations to release the brake.
Lucy, Jeff and Warren live in the UK, Howard lives in Australia and Trevor lives in the UK and Australia. We work wherever people and organisations are attracted to working with us.
What do we offer?
First and foremost we offer a human experience. We offer you a chance to discover so much about yourself that you will undoubtedly be surprised, and mostly pleased. Through contact with us you will experience a wide range of challenging experiences that will test your capacities and skills to the full.
Because we work with the unfolding moment, and because we don't know what you will bring to, or want from your contact with us, we cannot describe exactly what it will be like for you or what you will get from us; though we have considerable experience of working differently and effectively through leading, consulting, coaching and facilitating growth and development. What we can say is that it will be different from anything you have experienced so far.
You will be exposed to Gestalt as a philosophy and a theory of practice that brings together a focus on human values and practical organisational aims. It defines ways of being and working that are suffused with personal values and practical behaviours. Because Gestalt focuses on what is happening in this moment it is an exciting and effective way of working with people in any situation in which they may find themselves, and we have developed approaches, which relate this specifically to organisations.
In addition to extensive personal development experiences and a wide range of gestalt models we've applied in our organisational work, we can offer you a range of other models and tools we have developed to support our work.
A last word or warning
Your experience with us is likely to change you and introduce you to ways of being and working that will have a powerful impact on you. Your work with individuals, groups, and organisations may well change beyond recognition and will likely give you an ongoing and deeply satisfying platform from which to continue to develop and grow.
