The mutual understanding and common purpose of both small and large groups often underpins the positive achievement of both organisations and systems. Working with such groups is an essential part of our work. We believe that deliberately building the connections between people, paying attention to the sharing of perspectives, knowledge and skills is at the heart of a collaborative and shared leadership that empowers everyone to make the decisions that take the organisation or system forward towards it’s goal.
In working with small and large groups we are often putting the outcome for the beneficiary, user, patient or community at the heart of your work. In the interactions between members of such groups across organisations or systems we are often helping reshape cultures and behaviour so that they align with the interests of those they are there to serve. In our facilitation we are usually finding ways to enable groups to address profound questions about the ways in which they may have allowed themselves to become part of the problems experienced by users rather than being an driver for a better way of delivering, caring or supporting people.
