We partner clients to successfully navigate organisation transformation through our unique People and Organisation Transformation approach; yes, People & Culture first, then Organisation Systems, Structures and Processes to guide and sustain the journey.
We believe that in any transformation (Digital or otherwise), it starts with the Leadership Team. The Senior Leaders must first “get their acts right” as One Team and role-model the Desired Culture. To illustrate what we mean, consider the following:
Imagine this. The leadership team members enter the room, chatting and laughing as they take their seats. The meeting starts on time, everyone shares, daring to be bold and contributes actively to the agenda. There is no ego and members are prepared to listen to differing perspectives and co-create solutions to unstructured issues….
Elsewhere, another leadership team enters the meeting room, silent and tense. As the meeting starts, individuals start pointing fingers at one another or remain silent throughout; there is no ownership of issues. There is a sense of cynicism and fear in embarking on new initiatives….
The differences between the two groups are stark. The first group of leaders displays behaviours consistent with values of collaboration, accountability and trust. The second group exhibits silo-mentality, blame and caution.

Our Impact, Our Transformation
John Augustine Ong
Head of Learning & Development, HR
Vincent partnered with us to lead and conduct the leadership values assessment debrief sessions and follow-up workshops for our senior leaders, providing a much-needed platform and forum for self-review and constructive dialogue. He helped the leaders to gain greater awareness of their own individual and leadership team values and philosophy, with the outcome of co-creating a common vision and goal for the future of the organization.
The value that Vincent brought to the whole process was his ability to facilitate a healthy discussion amongst our senior leaders and to help them synthesize their differing viewpoints into a coherent strategy and approach.
Generally, the feedback from the various senior leaders was that they all felt that there was tremendous value in the process and the dialogue sessions were the catalyst to helping leadership the team identify and focus our organization towards a new way of thinking and behaviors, that would be supportive of the growth ambition of the organization.
