If you want to deliver on the full potential of breakthrough innovations, 4th Industrial Revolution technologies and 21st Century business transformations then your culture and people will have to change.

But human beings do not change as easily as production lines. Our Change Accelerator Programs enlighten, empower and enable your teams to switch on and step up to embrace the new – by first letting go of the old.

THE CHALLENGE WITH CHANGE

The fast and furiously changing world forces every organization to change to stay in step. Agility and adaptability are a survival imperative in the 21st Century.

However, our biologies evolved to hold onto old habits and lock into old thinking. When we are asked to change, we are triggered into the stress response and resist it both consciously and unconsciously.

No organization can bypass this biology. If they try – with top-down change programs that leverage the carrot and stick – change will fail.

We minimize frustration, fear, and friction

We amplify possibilities, purpose and empowerment

We harness persuasion not just protocols and processes

We seek responsibility-taking not just rules and rewards

THE BENEFITS OF OUR CHANGE ACCELERATORS

Maximize your investment in new processes, software and technologies by ensuring change is embraced not resisted - this means engaging the human beings who must implement it

Reduce the inevitable fear, frustration and fatigue around change - through a deep understanding of human biology - and so lead people to change with empathy, optimism and transparency

Guide teams to come together in the space that change opens up to find deeper common cause and a renewed sense of purpose

Ensure every team member owns the change by helping them spot and seize the opportunities for themselves - and proactively mitigate the risks

Use change to land a massive mindset and behavior upgrade in key areas for future survival fitness - creativity, collaboration, confidence, agility and adaptability

Leave employees with empowering tools and techniques they can use long after the change program is complete

THE BREAKTHROUGH CURVE: THE BLUEPRINT OF CHANGE

 Culture change is not linear. We are organisms and not algorithms.

Our Change Accelerators lead your people across their own Breakthrough Curve, the archetypal blueprint for change for every individual, team and organization.

We must first let go of old habits, thinking and cultural baggage before we get to embrace new ones.

 “Powerful interventions to change the hearts and minds of our top 10,000 people to support them become more collaborative, innovative, experimental and empowering”

Head of Change, Unilever

THE SCIENCE OF CHANGE: RESIST OR RESPOND?

Our Change Accelerators harness insights from the latest brain science to get people out of resistance and reactivity and into receptivity and responsivity.

We do this by actively minimizing negative emotions, particularly anxiety about loss of reputation, power, self-worth and income; whilst maximizing positive emotions about the possibilities inherent in change, like autonomy, empowerment, collaboration and more meaning.

40+ Interventions To Shift Hearts & Minds

Every approach harnesses cutting-edge neurobiology as well as evidence-based behavioral science.

Each intervention is focused on either changing emotions, mindsets or behaviors (or a combination). They use the power of science and timeless wisdom to support people to do the hardest thing in the world:  change.
