It’s the people. It’s the people who make the difference in companies. That has been our message ever since we founded the company at the end of the last century. It has always been the people who have made our company what it is. And so we people work with our client-people on shaping the best possible forms of leadership and collaboration in their companies.
In 2016, we embarked on our biggest self-experiment to date. The management had had enough of the status quo and so, following an intensive process of soul-searching, we decided to transition to a hierarchy-free organization. This exciting, strenuous, motivating journey is still ongoing – even when we occasionally think we have already arrived, the world reveals a new side to us and so our journey continues.
That is how we have become who we are.
These are some of the many experiences we share with our clients. We engage with what we find and look for solutions together. Generally, we find them.
“As consultants & advisors, we support our clients in achieving their best, in being vibrant and transformative. We empower people and organizations to rethink and effectively deliver leadership and collaboration. To this end, we create space for change, empower tangible innovation and explore unconventional avenues.” (Purpose P1, 2019)
For some time now, we at P1 have been asking ourselves how work and economic activity can shape a future worth living.
It is our firm conviction that in order to tackle the current crises and challenges, we need to rethink the way we do business. We need to move away from a purely profit-driven approach and unreflective growth towards an economy for the common good. To know where we stand as an organization, we have prepared a “common good balance sheet”.
And what can we say – there is still work to be done.
But thanks to the process and the Common Good Matrix, we are now in a better position to know which screws we need to tweak.
The programs and services we offer are as varied and individual as your leaders. Development programs, team leadership, self-leadership, strategic thinking, change, coaching…
An organization that doesn’t develop is neither viable nor capable of surviving. Not true? OK, then, whatever you do, don’t click the arrow.
