1. We value impact
We value performance, and we value results. We want to help people to win, so that their businesses win, so that together we can create a better society that is healthy and growing. We grow together.
2. We celebrate diversity
We believe that our intellectual and cultural diversity is a key reason for our history of trust with our clients in managing projects in our unique and every changing South African – and African – context. We believe that diversity is a key part of how we empower our clients to create meaningful impact.
3. We value people – ours and yours
Our people are our biggest asset, and our primary connection with our clients. And as we know, inter-personal relationships are one of the key success factors in any consulting project. So as much as we offer to our people in workplace environment, benefits and development, we ask in terms of their own respect and care for each other, our partners and our clients.
4. We value the long-term view
We reject this status quo in favour of the long-term view; focusing on long-term value over short-term profit, partnered relationships rather than quick transactional wins. We are connected to the outcome, to the client as a person, and to the journey of the client’s business.
5. We value resilience and commitment
Methodology and best practice cannot alone guarantee impactful project delivery. Every day, we show up for the hard yards, and the hard conversations, that drive projects from good to great, from delivery to meaningful impact.
6. We value emotional intelligence
As an intellectual property business that advises senior leadership in complex business issues, one of our key strengths in pushing projects through to meaningful impact is developing high trust, high maturity relationships and collaborations with our clients. We listen well, we appreciate differences of opinion and we show respect for our clients and others around us.
