About us

We help leaders – current and future – to thrive on change.

We encourage them to understand the threats and opportunities in the new era of radical uncertainty and disruption.

We focus on the human capacity of leaders. We know that change is very difficult to achieve. We see ourselves as advisers and catalysts – not traditional consultants.

We work and engage with leaders to identify the challenges their organisations face. We help to surface underlying issues – the unthinkables and unpalatables - that leaders often find uncomfortable.

We make ‘dangerous conversations’ safer to have. We help foster a mindset that ensures those at every level can innovate, experiment and fail safely.

We support and guide leaders and their teams to transform their organisations - to embed a new culture, behaviour and mindset. Often the best ‘consultants’ come from within, especially the Next Generation. We help leaders realise that.

We encourage organisations to reinvent their purpose. Living and acting on those values generates new value. This is why it is vital to engage the energy and knowledge of the Next Gen.

Thinking the Unthinkable is the start of a process. We have trusted partners who work with us to deliver change.

We believe leaders in all sectors must radically change. We know that because they have told us.

We have unrivalled data. We have tracked the rising, inexorable pressures on leaders in hundreds of interviews and conversations. We share stories of success and failure. We constantly update ourselves though a wide network of leaders, academics, policymakers and thinkers across the world.
