“We see the world, not as it is, but as we are -- or, as we are conditioned to see it. When we open our mouths to describe what we see, we in effect describe ourselves, our perceptions, our paradigms.”
― Stephen. R. Covey
Executives are expected to have 'super human' powers in a VUCA context but in reality they also often struggle to make sense of themselves and their teams.
Our coaching models support leaders to work with 'above-the-surface' EQ and personality development needs, as well as with the unconscious 'below-the-surface' dynamics that are less obvious.
Awareness of 'below-the-surface' dynamics leads to insight, authenticity and the taking up of authority to lead.
Our approach to team dynamics includes working with both 'above-the-surface' conscious as well the deeper unconscious 'below-the-surface' irrational dynamics.

Espoused values do necessarily reflect the actual culture of an organisation. Culture can be understood as a set of socially constructed defenses, unconscious in organisational life.
These defense cannot be measured through traditional surveys because they exist in the unconscious and therefore require a different lens to be seen.
PeopleSense offers culture analysis from a socio-analytic lens for trnaformation.

Emotional intelligence is the unique set of emotional and social skills that a person can use to navigate everyday challenges of life.
In his book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, Daniel Goleman defines EQ as the "capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and our relationships."
Equip your leaders and team members with the skills needed to manage their emotions and build productive relationships .
While restructuring can be necessary it seldom addresses the real people and task dynamics which then re-appear down the line.
Navigating the dynamics of change requires deep reflection, collective dreaming, and making conscious the dynamics beneath conflict, identity, boundaries, authority, role and task.
We consult to clients in navigating the dynamics of change by creating spaces to think deeply and make sense within the complexity.
