Courageous Consulting was founded to assist organisations to thrive in these times of unprecedented change. Too often organisations are more like political obstacle courses than responsive environments that enable everyone to do their best work. What fascinates is creating the shift… Along with our infectious curiosity to understand organisations and how they can be more effective, our ability to translate complex issues into practical insights and interventions distinguishes Courageous Consulting from others. The frameworks that guide our thinking and advice allow for both consistency and customisation to suit your context. Within this our own approaches are constantly evolving based on research, client feedback and our own experience and development.We are at the forefront of understanding how to optimise the individual and collective potential of organisations.
