The Human Factor

  • ‘Avoidable inaction’ cause 3 times more cost (76B GBP pa) to British Businesses than even cyber crime and sick leaves.
  • 72% of transformation programs fail due to lack of leadership support and people’s resistance to change.
  • Most individuals know what to do, how to do and still do not do it. Why?
  • Do entrepreneurs suffer more than their teams due to inaction?

So what do we do about it? What can create sustained change? What is the difference between motivation and drive, transformation and change, results and sustained success?

What We Do


We work together with decision makers to provide clarity, validation, roadmaps and focused alignment to ensure they are not just on the right strategy, the achieve their goals to the fullest. This is measured and benchmarked with valuable data available on the human behavioural aspects. Let us talk in more detail.

Teams & Organisations

What would “team emotional intelligence” mean to you and your team? How would smoother alignment speed up your organisational achievements? How do we amplify the human in the team and the organism in the organisation towards sustained growth? Talk to us to know more.


Transforming one person at a time, with certainty and clarity. The power of an individual is generally under estimated by the individual herself. Why is it easier to fall into a spiral of missing steps towards your dreams? Do you know that the more important our goals are, the more the average person delays achieving them? Sounds counter-intuitive, isn’t it? We ensure this does not happen – let us tell you how.

Explore and Talk

Team Demo

Available both online and in-person, this is our super-popular option to get a real taste of the power of alignment towards the next step in your journey, both as an individual and as a team. We have done this at the end of team meetings / calls, at quarterly/annual get-togethers, and at crisis times too – the common result being a highly focused team eager to achieve their immediate goals with certainty. How does that happen? Talk to us to know more.


A value-loaded session where we sit over a coffee and look at industry-wide solutions and provide you a relative position on issues faced by peer and competitor firms, maturity curve for execs, and understand the deeper issues you and your team may have with limited visible symptoms. We show you scientific methods to ensure quality of communication and stay away from trends of failure – trends have a deeper story to say than events. There are immediate take-aways from this discussion itself. Find out more!
