Process One

How have we become who we are?

It’s the people. It’s the people who make the difference in companies. That has been our message ever since we founded the company at the end of the last century. It has always been the people who have made our company what it is. And so we people work with our client-people on shaping the best possible forms of leadership and collaboration in their companies.

In 2016, we embarked on our biggest self-experiment to date. The management had had enough of the status quo and so, following an intensive process of soul-searching, we decided to transition to a hierarchy-free organization. This exciting, strenuous, motivating journey is still ongoing – even when we occasionally think we have already arrived, the world reveals a new side to us and so our journey continues.

That is how we have become who we are.

These are some of the many experiences we share with our clients. We engage with what we find and look for solutions together. Generally, we find them.
