OUR STORY

After working in the people performance business for just short of two decades, our founder Christina Griffiths, was faced with some interesting questions about team and group performance, where the usual models did not always provide the comprehensive solutions needed.

A period of research with Birkbeck University and the market leaders, global commercial insurers XL Catlin produced the foundations for building and testing a new model of working for teams and groups.

This became the Coll-lab approach which enables us to work with our clients to work at scale and with global, cross-functional, multi-cultural teams and groups.  Since the initial development, we have evolved our approach to provide a variety of integrated solutions to encompass all the different ways we work together.

Today we have integrated our Coll-lab approach into everything we do, providing our clients with a critical new piece of their agile performance, enabling them to keep ahead of the game.

‘Taking part in the diagnostics was made very easy and took place with myself and other management in order to shape the questionnaires to fit different geographical regions. 

The executive reporting and feedback we received was professional and useful, providing insights we are now actively following up on.  This project was made understandable and our questions were handled  with professionalism and care’.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

  • Our solutions are designed to empower so that you and your people feel even more equipped to deliver greater value to your clients.
  • We create new approaches and apply them to current organisational contexts to create new dimensions of performance and improve how things are done.
  • We use a science and evidence-based approach so that our ideas are scalable beyond one individual or team to provide you with frameworks, a common language, and standard methods.
  • We understand what it means to be human and believe that working on a human-to-human basis will not only enhance our success to you but your success to your clients.
  • We believe life is too short not to enjoy the working day and so aim to make our working partnership as easy and enjoyable as possible.

WHY WORK WITH US?

We help visionary global tech leaders scale their organisations by building people-centric workplaces, using scientific thinking and in alignment with their aspirations. 

We Can:

Help you scale at your pace:  Our collab-lab approach covers the workforce function in a way that enables our solutions to integrate.  Allowing you to invest in your people at a pace that suits your ambition and budget.

Help you scale in your way: Most of what we do is bespoke to each organisation.  Where we have a high demand for a topic, we develop workshops and programmes to meet this demand.

Unify your workforce thinking: We use a common language and framework that works through the end-to-end talent/workforce function, meaning that you and your workers can get on the same page more quickly. This is ideal when working with people of different backgrounds, cultures, ages, and skill levels and is especially important when it comes to talking about soft skills where different words have different meanings.

Embrace Diversity: Our collab-lab approach actively promotes diverse thinking and behaviour as a central tenet to high performance working.  We use diagnostics that allow you to embrace strengths that you might not see from just looking at someone.  We help our clients build organisational cultures where differences are valued.

Agile Working: Our Collab-lab approach can give you the missing piece when it comes to building an agile, flexible high performing workforce.

Evidence based: All our solutions utilize over 20 years of experience and are driven by a unique model and methodology which has been tested in organisations big and small and is underpinned by scientific research. 

This is about getting the right people in the right teams for the right results for the business. What’s not to like, everyone is a winner.
