Collaborating for Results

We are specialists in the art and science of collaboration, built on many years’ experience in consultation, facilitation and collaboration.

We are recognised for our leadership in the field, having supported authentic collaboration in the UN, in Central Banks, in Commonwealth and State agencies and large private sector organisations.

Drawing on our decades of collective experience we have developed a range of unique processes, tools and resources. Together they comprise our Power of Co system, which is being used by a wide range of clients seeking better results through better collaboration.

Authentic collaboration is our passion and our business.

We Believe

    • That collaboration works better
    • In the enormous capability of people to work together to solve any problem and reach any goal
    • That solving problems together is the key to long term success
    • The better we are at working together the more we can achieve

Why? Because working together works better. 

Because the world is a complex place, getting more complex every day. Our actions have far-ranging implications and we face challenges that none have faced before. We believe that simple solutions to complex problems are no solution at all. Rather, these challenges require us to face uncertainty and complexity.

Acknowledging complexity, exploring our mutual dilemmas and sharing our experiences, beliefs and values allows us to create ways forward that none could create on their own. To do this well we must close the gap between the need to work better together and our capability to do so.
