Career success requires an intelligent understanding of all the factors at play: professional background and work history; professional competencies, including skills, behaviour, and attitudes; and personal history and career ambitions. That's a complex adaptive systems problem. We provide a complex adaptive systems solution.
A complex adaptive system (CAS) has multiple interconnected and interacting parts and agents. Examples include neural and social networks, ecosystems and economies, and organisations. Careers are a form of complex adaptive system. They are made up of other CAS (or 'sub-systems') that include personal and professional contact networks, work background and competencies, and personal history, beliefs, and motivations.
We specialise in helping leaders and high-level contributors achieve peak performance. We accomplish this by applying a complex adaptive systems lens to professional and career challenges. This means that while the foundation of our approach is proven methods and validated cutting-edge research, it is augmented by systems analysis that accounts for the fact that careers are complex adaptive systems, and therefore have certain behavioural tendencies and responses to internal and external events.
A complex adaptive systems lens means we provide critical insight to facilitate better decisions at key inflexion points in careers and leadership. The capacity to detect hidden variables and reveal how they impact individual and overall career performance drives this. Our tools include advanced psychometric assessment tools, competency mapping, and executive coaching.
We provide clients with the insight they need to make difficulty career decisions, move beyond challenging chapters in their career, and build the career and professional life they want. We offer the following solutions: Leadership Coaching, Career Advice, Performance Coaching, and Career Change.
Our use of a complex adaptive systems lens provides clients with the information and capacity they need to achieve peak performance outcomes at work and across their careers.
