Big no longer beats small.
It’s the fast that beat the slow.
Organisations everywhere are scrambling to keep up as the world around them becomes faster and more uncertain. And yet, their brightest people are drowning in meetings and emails. They know they need to change, but don’t know how.
Doing the same things only faster doesn’t work. People burn out and the organisation still feels on the back-foot. Others believe RACIs, more processes, and committees are the silver bullet. But this just adds to the complexity that exists already.
The truth is, people are naturally agile and adaptive but more often than not the organisation gets in their way. A big part of organisational change is stripping layers of bureaucracy away to set talent free.
We make profound organisational change feel easier, faster and refreshingly human.
Strangers can’t be changers
Even the smartest people can’t change an organisation by shouting from afar. The most profound change starts with fewer people working closer together, more openly. This is why we started Kindred, why we stay small and how we make a real difference
Meet you where you are
There is no blueprint. No rule book. The trick is to get the balance right between people skills and systems thinking. Our back pockets are bursting with battle-tested frameworks and processes. But we always start small, simple and personal, choosing the right tools as we go.
Real teams, real work, real time
We work closely with the right people, on real work in real time to remove obstacles, simplify decision-making and set people free. We coach individuals, co-create new processes and change culture – gradually and collaboratively.
Dents, not decks
We don’t spend energy on presentations, we spend it with you inside your company. We help teams and organisations make small behaviour changes that have a big impact.
We kickstart teams
We coach leaders
We rethink the system
We build capacity
We codify the approach
We ignite movements
We can start with culture, teams or a business priority – it’s all connected. One philosophy working at different levels, with a varying toolset.
By starting small and working together closely, change comes faster and is less disruptive and overwhelming. The impact compounds as lessons and systems are expanded to other teams; initially, small changes become profound shifts in culture and output.
