Everest Culture Review

We help organisations to understand their current culture and identify gaps between their ideal, and what’s lived. It highlights misaligned systems, processes and behaviour, and provides a roadmap for improvement.

Tiger in the Room

BOARD WORKSHOP

An intimate and transformative conversation facilitated by Dr Simon Longstaff to help Boards uncover their blind spots. Informed by insights from the study of history, philosophy, psychology and military doctrine, it presents a coherent and practical alternative to an over-reliance on regulation and surveillance when managing risk.

Systemic Intelligence

SENIOR LEADER DEVELOPMENT

All organisations today face systemic challenges and ethical dilemmas. This complexity has created the conditions for poor decision making, leading to an erosion of trust in our institutions. Systems thinking and ethical reasoning enables leaders to navigate and make good decisions in complexity, to manage risk and enable innovation to thrive.  

Ethics Framework Design

PURPOSE, VALUES & PRINCIPLES

A strong Ethics Framework weaves together purpose, values and principles to establish a clear point of reference to make decisions. By creating union between the why (purpose), priorities and goals (values) and the guiding balances (principles), we help organisations fortify their capacity for consistent decision making and a framework for a strong ethical culture.

PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT SERVICE

Ethics Counsel is a program for professionals who have breached an ethical framework, guideline or code of practice and are required to undertake remediation. Consisting of one-on-one counselling sessions, it provides a confidential and independent space for reflection, understanding and education.
