  • Create containers and safe holding spaces in which individuals, teams, organisations, and eco-systems can function and grow.
  • Tap into the wider collective intelligence that emerges and cultivates innovative organisations, leaders, and teams to prepare them for a future we cannot predict.
  • Integrate the transformational powers of creativity, human-centered design thinking, and lean start-up methodologies to see opportunities and solve problems in ways that people value and cherish.

  • Go to the edges and see the world with fresh eyes by becoming an anti-conventional, contrary and creative thinkers, decision-makers and problem solvers.
  • Step back and slow down through attending and observing, retreating and reflecting, and rebooting to break biases and paradigms to shift mindsets to create spaces to emerge new insights, possibilities, and breakthrough ideas.
  • Nurture their curiosity and imagination by disrupting and breaking functional fixedness by knowing how to safely use creative tension and cognitive dissonance as a source of constructive disagreement and creativity.
  • Discover unexpected patterns and connections and maximize differences and diversity in groups to generate new combinations for creative ideas and innovative solutions that result in intelligent actions.
  • Experiment, learn by failing (safely), iterate and pivot to turn promising ideas into workable and innovative solutions applying human-centered design thinking and start-up methodologies.
  • Mobilize others, steer past obstacles, to build collaborative teams, networks, and eco-systems.
