Our proven approach
Excellerate© is built on years of experience of sparking movements in organisations by delivering Appreciative Inquiry (AI) led programmes. 

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.

1
Involve
We bring your people together, so they feel involved, and understand that they are the solution.
2
Context
We start with your strategy and involve your people to build understanding. Understanding of where we are, of the landscape and of the future we will embrace. And this is the strategy to guide us. And then we ask, quite simply “What do you think?”
3
Inquiry
Through conversation we surface the strengths and qualities that already exist in your organisation and which will underpin the success of that strategy.
4
Imagine
Together you create a powerful vision of what your world looks and feels like once change is made. To bring together a successful strategy that delivers a successful future built on the strengths of your organisation.
5
Innovate
Together we engage your people. Empowering your teams to define the areas in the business that will have the biggest impact on delivering your strategy. Creating a roadmap with a common destination where everyone understands their part in the journey ahead and the role they play within it.
6
Inspire
Combining your strengths, strategy and roadmap to build a powerful narrative that the whole business can understand and believe in.
7
Navigate
The interplay between culture, strategy and performance is vital.
Communication is key to take your movement forward, but measurement and feedback is critical to ensure that you are going in the right direction.

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.

What qualities does your organisation need to transform? 

We recently did some research which shows that there are a number of qualities and behaviours needed within organisations for them to survive and thrive in the world today. 

The results are in… Teamwork, Agility and Trust stand out. In many ways these are not new qualities but enabling them to grow and activate a positive future is a real challenge .


Do you know what qualities your organisation needs?
 
Which one would have the biggest impact in your organisation? 

And which would be the most difficult to deliver? 

Excellerate © will help to answer these questions and then help those qualities to flourish.
