The core of what we do is about ‘Enabling Capability’ for people in the workplace so they can do the job that is in front of them when they need to do it. Of course improving capability is not limited to work as many of the things that help us be more capable at work flow across into our personal lives as well.
The focus of our Enabling Capability approach is mostly on managers because they are a very big leverage point for helping the world become a better place. The quality of management has a huge impact on the quality of the lives of those who are being managed, and those whom they serve. If you improve the way people are managed by even a small percentage, so many people win.
