Never before have we had so much opportunity to change the course of our future history. But, what got us here, won’t get us there!

But, we think there’s a different approach to helping leaders in global organisations shape that future. Welcome to...

WHY

The world is now non-linear, exponential and high-speed and that means the traditional approaches to driving innovation, creating value and shaping the future are no longer relevant.

The macro challenges around driving growth and creating value in an innovation-led, VUCA world combined with the pace of technology-driven change has created a sense of urgency which now requires leaders to take a much more iterative approach in order to explore new ways forward and create a completely different tomorrow. The traditional approach to leadership development is also outdated and is no longer sufficient to create the kind of value required for shaping the future. The style of leadership that got us here, won’t get us there! Why, because if leaders are going to ‘put a ding in the universe’ they need to become pioneers, 10x thinkers and future shapers.

WHAT

Our work is based on a holistic, outcome-driven approach to supercharging leadership and corporate innovation performance in order to shape the future.

Our dual-operating (micro-fast, macro-slow) methodology means we work with leaders to solve today’s innovation-led growth challenges whilst building the capabilities for solving the longer-term high-value challenges and opportunities shaping the future presents.

We work with senior leaders to...

...develop future-focused exponential strategies and align them to core growth and value-creation goals

...build portfolios of strategically aligned, high-value future scenarios and innovation initiatives

...accelerate current innovation capability and develop new ‘future-shaping’ capability

...align leadership thinking, behavior and capability to the future business and innovation agenda

...develop and scale organisation-wide innovation capability and culture

...gain new perspective, insights, thinking and experiences in order to inspire them to become pioneers, 10x thinkers and future shapers

HOW

In addition to our combined experience of working with some of the most ambitious leaders and organisations in the world, we draw on a global tribe of recognised thought leaders and practitioners.

We work side-by-side with leaders, physically ‘in’ the business, not hypothetically ‘on’ the business in order to better help turn exponential thinking into innovation-led strategic action because we think that can only be done effectively when it’s physical, cognitive and immersive. So, we co-create interventions to shift leaders into a space where they can think 10x in order that they can shape the future of their organisations rather than managing the impact of the future as it unfolds. But most importantly, what we do is an outcome-driven ‘intervention’ designed to do one thing, enable leaders to continue shaping the future when we’re gone.

WHO

Never before have we had so much opportunity to change the course of our future history. But, what got us here, won’t get us there! So, talk to us about designing a different approach to helping senior leaders drive innovation, create value and shape the future.
