Caroline Williams and Nick Simmonds have joined forces in order to bring a combination of various disciplines with an aim to support organisations maximise the potential of their people.
Individual potential is made up of many factors, including: talent, knowledge, drive, skills etc. and an organisation’s potential consists of the combination of the totality of the individuals’ potential.
We use Caroline's research, for her masters in Organisational Dynamics, as a springboard for diagnosing the ‘issues behind the issues’ including ‘The Unspoken Issues’, ‘The Boundaries of the Issues’ and ‘The Underlying Emotions’ that often accompany the issues.
The basis for our work is Caitlin Walker’s Systemic Modelling methodology, and David Grove’s Clean Language, which combine to create an environment that is free of assumption, expectation and judgement. In this new space, issues are explored in a new light, and communication, relationships, and individual and group creativity improve.
The progress made on a group level is then embedded with regular coaching, both to specific teams, and individually. Using Clean Coaching methodology we support our clients to harness their skills and attributes to succeed both personally and together.
