Our story starts with a totem pole & some coloured pens.
When we think about our lives and the legacy we want to leave behind, making a difference to people unites us. It’s our what, why and how.
So we needed something to symbolize our tribe and what we stand for and we found this definition: A totem pole is a symbol of a tribe and represents its unity. Perfect.
So now we have our symbol and a combined sense of purpose, we’re focused on making a difference to people at work – with the wider aim of impacting life at home, in schools and everywhere else.
We find people who share our values and mission and work with them to identify their strengths and passions. Then we step back, supporting them in doing what they do best.
We have a mix of business psychologists, HR professionals, theatre experts and operators to make up our varied and skilled team.
Have you ever looked at a team, maybe your company or the work you’re doing and thought, “there must be a better way, surely?” Well that’s what we were thinking too. We want to do business differently – getting rid of things that don’t fit with our values and don’t create the best performance.
This starting point of looking at things with a fresh perspective and focusing on people at their best has led to new ideas on how we recruit, develop and manage people – in our own team and for our clients. Backed up by our research, we see the benefits of taking a more values-centred and positive approach to everything we do.
Now we’re building our community – a free, accessible forum for all to share ideas and be inspired by the latest thinking (or indeed the oldest thinking that we need reminding of) for people to be at their Best.
We want our legacy to be that people of all ages consider their lives, their purpose, values and how they can be at their best. Finding their own totem, children and adults will be more successful – in whatever way they measure that success – and enjoy their lives and work. It is through our growing community that we can begin to have that impact and allow others to grow it themselves.
