Are you Right or are you Winning?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you were convinced that you were right and that the person you were debating with was wrong? Or that someone else’s behaviour was ‘out of order’ and that it up was up to them to ‘apologise’ or ‘make the first move’? Perhaps you’ve had that situation… Read more


Engage for Engagement

A lot of organisations claim to have put effort into a coaching culture, but when we look at them we find that many have trained a few managers to be internal coaches and others have rolled out a coaching model at the management level. In our view these essentially miss the definition of the word culture, which to us means ‘how we do things around here’. Unless everyone is engaged in it, it’s not cultural.

Making an Impact

Measurable impacts can come from adopting a measured approach to development – establishing clear measures of success and then providing the space and support for participants to develop their skills.


Models or motives?

Establishing a culture of coaching is one of the most challenging change initiatives any company can take on. I’m talking about a true culture of coaching, where every manager and employee engages in it and not the kind we are seeing advocated in some organisations where a few people are trained as internal coaches. I’m taking cultural, where it becomes ‘the way we do things around here’ The difficulty, as we’ve written here before, is in the integration of coaching into every leaders modes operandi. In this blog I share some insights from a recent discussion with an emerging leader coach.


Relationship Equity

Have you ever been party to a business relationship with someone where you just seem to click? And you weren’t even aware of the ‘effort in – result’ equation. The Altris Relationship Equity Inventory (R.E.I.) helps put a measure on why those relationships work, with a view to helping better relationships which are not so good or puzzling. By understanding our least-preferred thought dimensions and taking action to view our relationships through that perspective, we have the opportunity to deepen our relationships, which is good for business all round.
