Our Approach

Two principles underpin our approach to designing and facilitating group processes:

Whole-Person Engagement

Our methods include processes that integrate right-brain imagination, artistry and intuition with left-brain logic, analysis, and planning.

We apply integrated methods in designing workshop processes, creating experiences that are whole-brained, multi-sensory and physically active including Graphic Facilitation, Play and Creativity.   This optimises participation and accelerates solution creation, innovation and learning.

Meaning-Centred, Strength-Based

For true engagement, there is a critical dimension: emotional connection to the process and its purpose. Our style focuses on individual and group meaning, accountability and strengths as we guide the whole group toward achieving objectives.
Our marrying of whole-systems and whole-person approaches is extremely powerful in fully engaging participants in the process of creating solutions, delivering outcomes and developing capability. In our experience, when a group of people are fully engaged, when individual members feel validated, and when the group is focused on and guided toward a specific goal, magic can happen in a very short time.
