The Barrett Values tool has helped organisations like Coca-cola, Mastercard, PWC and Unilever to build and sustain high performing, values-driven cultures. The best companies not only know their values but live in line with those values every day. Making decisions becomes easier across the organisation once the values and how to execute them becomes clear for everyone. This results in an aligned, efficient and focused organisation. In 2020 we will be helping organisations to live and breathe their values from the bottom of their organisation.
When Satya Nadella took over the helm of Microsoft in 2014, he had all the senior executives read a copy of the book ‘Non-violent Communication’ by the psychologist Marshall B. Rosenberg. The book and the lessons from it are credited with transforming the culture from a toxic, hostile and conflict-ridden environment to one where collaboration, compassion and empathy fuel strong working relationships. Like Nadella, we love NVC and the lessons it teaches. We will be running tailored NVC workshops for organisations in 2020 to help them harness the power of this powerful communication tool.
Emotional Intelligence remains one of the most critical skills for leaders, especially those at the top of the organisation.

Advancing the cause of women in the workplace is a particular passion of ours and so it made sense to serve this group with a Women in Leadership programme. We felt the challenges facing women in workplace warranted some special attention. This programme will be launching at the end of Q1 2020 and will be available as a public programme and a more tailored in-house programme for female leaders.
As an organisation we have advocated Strengths since 2016 and this year it is more important to us than ever. In 2020 we will be recommending Strengths as the go-to assessment for companies who want to help their employees develop in the right areas, build self-awareness and personal growth, drive connections between team members and enable managers and leaders to be more effective. We recommend Strengths because it is one of the most accurate assessments on the market and it works on an individual and company level. Throughout 2019 we saw increased demand for strengths and we expect that to continue in 2020.
It’s hard to believe that up until late 2019 we had never been to Saudi Arabia. Things in KSA are changing quickly and the scale of the change is bringing amazing opportunities for its residents. We were captivated by the place, the people and the overall reception that we received in Saudi Arabia. We are currently working on several learning programmes and initiatives to support the region as they work towards their 2030 vision.
