We define power as the energy necessary to make things happen in accordance with the will.
We define dynamics as the fluidity which keeps power from being irreversibly controlled by a single individual, family, group, institution or state.
For businesses in a market where the power dynamics are shifting, and where the relationships among competitors, suppliers, partners, shareholders, regulators, customers and other stakeholders may be uncertain.
For companies in which organisational politics are threatening results; or where certain departments or teams are engaged in a power struggle that is taking energy away from core business.
For charities, NGOs, social enterprises, think tanks and political entities who are seeking to secure their own power base or credibility in relation to funders, audiences and competitors.
For those individuals or organisations seeking to understand the changing nature of sexual and gender identity, and how power dynamics among different groups are being recalibrated in the process.
For individuals consciously or unconsciously entangled in the power dynamics of their family system, and who wish to become free of such entanglements in order to realise their potential.
We give presentations on the history, meaning and relevance of power dynamics today.
We run 3-hour dialogues with groups who wish to understand how to work with the power dynamics in their own context.
We deliver 1-3 day workshops for clients wishing to develop new strategies for managing power relationships and to turn those strategies into an action plan.
We design and facilitate week-long programmes in businesses for senior executives and/or high potentials who want to understand and develop their own power as leaders without damaging the organisation.
We offer bespoke half-day and one-day Constellations for individuals and businesses with a specific issue related to power dynamics that they wish to resolve.
We support individuals grappling with power issues in their personal and/or professional life. We meet in a confidential setting over the course of 6 sessions x 90 minutes.
We administer a set of proprietary tools for assessing the current and potential power of individuals and organisations. These tools work on a combination of self-assessment and observation.
We draw from a network of thinkers and doers drawn from business, law, government, education, consultancy and psychology.
