Are your Teams Energized, Effective and Future-fit?

The road ahead requires more focus and "horsepower" than before. Along with better communication, agility and rest (maintenance). 
Develop your sustainable advantage.


Being focused starts with knowing what you want, and making fine adjustments to keep seeing clearly. 

Focus and adapt to sustain energy and advantage

Can you relate to these challenges?

  • Being "always-on", with little room for work/life balance

  • Unclear or unspoken team expectations 

  • Unclear differentiation

  • Business model, ways of working (culture) or systems not agile enough

  • New roles or responsibilities, without transition or training

  • Anxiety, burnout, or regular fatigue

  • Conflict that undermines trust

  • Compliance and cost-cutting overruling capacity and creativity

  • Insufficient thought leadership 

  • Less-than-wow customer and employee experiences 

With the rise of AI, machine learning, IOT and quantum computing, the things that are irreplaceably human are even more important:. "Head and heart" skills are vital to competitive advantage, enabling leadership, learning and consistent brand experiences.

3. Business Immersions and Interludes

A digital waterfall has no spray. As social beings, we need interaction and stimulation (play) and inspiration often comes through challenge, dialogue or incubation.

Creating space for reflection, imagination and "wrestling" with issues is becoming a competitive advantage.

Off-site Immersions take people into "the field" to encounter diverse perspectives and innovative practices. There is no substitute for authentic encounters with a business case, especially when debriefed by experienced coaches, or as researcher Kolb wrote, "concrete experiences promote reflection, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation.".

We offer four package sizes:

  1. Small: One-day Immersions or effective, gamified team experience days

  2. Medium: One-and-a half day adventures into how Music or Photography offer profound insights on your business

  3. Large: Tailored multi-site Innovation Immersions, national or international.

  4. Interlude -  A mindful executive retreat for a post-pandemic world. Interludes inspire, refocus, energize and connect.                                                    

Go where inspiration can be found.
