What We Do

Why do executives and participants rate our learning experiences more highly and as different from anything they’ve been through before?

The secret is in our unique blend of Logos, Ethos and Pathos, touching the cognitive, behavioural and emotional levers of change, making our learning experiences not only different but above all more effective!

Mass Engagement Process

We help leaders engage their people through well-proven processes, using the three levers of Logos, Ethos and Pathos.

Cultural Performance Improvement

As 70% of an organisation’s culture comes from its leaders’ behaviours, we work with the leadership team to create a new performance culture.

+

Innovative Leadership Development

We are experts at accelerating change, using workplace simulations and feedback to create high-performance cultures.

Team & Individual Coaching

We act as “pathfinders” to help teams breakthrough and hold the difficult conversations they have been avoiding.

We help you prepare your organisation for the disruption economy.

Aristotle considered that to engage people, a leader needed first to have a clear message: Logos. Then, the leader, in order to be credible, had to behave in a manner coherent with their message: Ethos. Finally, to move people from intention to action, the leader needed to be able to speak to their hearts: Pathos.

According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.”

– Leon C. Megginson

Logos

In times of change, when creating engagement is paramount, Logos is the “Clarity Test”. It is about co-creating understanding, meaning and sense of the new plan. We advise leaders on the best way to create time and space for their people to understand the “what” and the “why” of the changes, to see how they can actively contribute and to feel accountable. Logos is about rationale, logic and intellect.

Ethos

Once people understand the plan for change, they tend to scrutinise their leaders to note whether or not they “walk the talk”. Ethos is the “Credibility Test”. Cynicism, criticism and disillusion will soon emerge if the leaders’ behaviours are inconsistent with their stated intention. We help leaders identify which behaviours will best demonstrate their commitment to change and coach them to practice these. Ethos is about coherence and trustworthiness.

Pathos

People move from intention to action when their emotions are engaged: when they feel excited, inspired, even compelled to act. Pathos is the “Engagement Test”. It involves stories, metaphors, gestures and symbols which speak to people’s hearts and souls. We prepare leaders to authentically engage the emotions of their people and create the dynamics that will lead to change. Pathos is about passion, belief and commitment.
