Our proven approach
Excellerate© is built on years of experience of sparking movements in organisations by delivering Appreciative Inquiry (AI) led programmes. Get in touch
AI is hugely powerful, and we've seen outstanding results. We've seen people's understanding and belief in their organisation and its strategy shift significantly and their engagement grow as their voices have been heard.
An independent review found that 90% of Appreciative Inquiry-driven change programmes are successful*, in stark contrast to the 30% success rate of change programmes generally**.
Our tried and tested approach is built on this unique process to transform and mobilise your organisation.
Exploring your organisation’s strengths.
Through a structured process of storytelling and conversations, led by carefully considered questions, the qualities and values that will underpin your future success will emerge.
What possibilities does the future offers us?
We help you to define the space, to share insights and expectations. And then we hold that space for your colleagues and stakeholders to stretch their thinking and express their ideas through amazing creative sessions. Building a powerful vision of your future.
Where do we focus our energy to bring that future to life?
We hold an open space and together we engage your people. Empowering your teams to define the areas that will have the biggest impact and creating a roadmap where everyone understands the journey ahead and the role they play within it.
Together we build the strategic narrative.
Combining your strengths, strategy and roadmap we build a powerful narrative that the whole business can understand and believe in. Celebrating the values and building a powerful shared context so that the whole business can move forward together.
Change is not an event it is a continuous movement
How it Works - The Virtual Space
Excellerate© is scalable, flexible and adaptable.
It can be used for 40 or 4,000 people, delivered over a couple of days or a number of months. Involving leadership teams, whole divisions, or your entire business. We could recreate your future world in a virtual space or simply use your conference call technology.
We can help you to roll out a new strategy, to innovate, collaborate, create new solutions and grow. Whenever you need to bring your people together to have conversations that matter to make a difference that counts.
We have been sparking movements in organisations for over 25 years,
and have designed Excellerate© for people to collaborate across hybrid
environments, both virtually and in workplaces across the globe.
