We want to be on the pitch with you feeling the pain, but also (very selfishly) sharing that feeling of success when people become engaged, resolve their issues and drive sustainable improvements and a brighter future for everybody.
We believe in establishing root cause, so we'll ask the right questions to understand people’s true beliefs, not just their positions. We know from experience that engaging effectively achieves incredible results, often beyond expectation. It takes hard work and sometimes difficult conversations though - so we'll always give honest feedback and we'll never shy away from a difficult conversation.
We'll always be a trusted partner who has the desire to see your business go from strength to strength through the power of engaged and valued people.
Very importantly, we believe in having fun and keeping a smile on our face - sometimes we fail momentarily, but it usually comes back pretty quickly.
Pragmatism isn't only our name it's our ethos. We'll never tell you what we think you want to hear – instead we'll give you honest views, warts and all – but in a constructive and helpful way - there's a solution to everything as long as pragmatism prevails.
As we've actually led people in operational roles, we'll help you to work more effectively with your people. We can tell you our own stories of success through people, and where we’ve made mistakes – often the most valuable experiences are the painful ones.
We'll give you real-life insights into poor people cultures, and our honest views as to how people leadership has influenced this.
We'll have genuine empathy because we know first-hand that leading people can be the most frustrating job in the world, and we also know that being an employee can be pretty frustrating too. Equally we know from our own experiences the amazing things that people achieve when true accountability and engagement are embedded.
