Your meetings, small, large
and conference scale will get greater results using professional
facilitators. While school children can be left to enjoy a game of
football with little influence from the referee, the same is not true with
international sides. Great players need great referees for the game
to flow. Left to themselves they would be unlikely to make it
through the game.
So it is in business and
commerce. A facilitator can release the players to focus on getting
the job done and will shoulder the responsibility of managing the meeting
climate/culture and the design of the meeting, ensuring that the meeting
goals are met.
Keeping meetings to time and
on track relieves frustration and represents a major cost saving and

innovation & change
The main issue when trying to
create innovation and change in organisations and people is the difficulty of stepping
back to see the wood for the trees.
A secondary issue is that all
innovations and change is complex. In an effort to understand it and make it
understandable to others many people fall back on simplistic structural
approaches to redesigning people, products and organisations. These inevitably fail
because it is the people and the way they behave that permits new ways of
working to function, or not. It is not the systems and structures.
We have experience of helping
people to step back, the tools to help them see the world in new ways, the
techniques to help people listen and be truly collaborative. We
support the enduring change that can result by helping you to invent and
implement new ways of working. We can also help you develop the skills
and capabilities to go on and support yourselves.
Paradoxically simplification is about
complexity. How often do you find yourself wondering how a simple
job or a simple product somehow seems to have become so complicated?
Simplification harnesses the power of
complexity theory in order to help you see the wood for the trees and make
choices about taking back control. Complexity theory deals with adaptive
stretch, the idea that all systems adapt and change to reflect the way the
world develops. This can mean that you find yourself supporting a
system that is now so far removed from what it is designed to do that is
time to reflect and build anew.
This process applies to people, plants,
computer systems, factories and any system you care to name.
Let us help you to step back and regain
sanity in what may have become an insane world.
