Our expertise and passion are to support you to actively respond to a changing world that is getting more and more diverse.
We'll support you to:
- develop healthy working relationships
- oil the engine of a small project team
- gain confidence in negotiating diverse situations
- make sure the language you use is affirming and appropriate
- get things wrong and recover
- assess whether what you do encompasses everyone and not just the "average"
We also offer a range of other services, using diversity and equitable participation as a platform:
- thought leadership and leadership development
- strategic and policy advice
- capacity development to enhance diversity and lead social improvement
- developmental evaluation
- public speaking, keynotes and participatory workshops*
- mentoring and coaching
- project and process management
- writing and editing
- online systems and web design
- social media
We work with individuals, teams, organisations, media, schools, communities and Government to "lean into" diversity as a way to create better environments, relationships, outcomes and more.
Society is changing with greater and greater speed. Cultures are becoming more and more intermingled; gender and sexual identity are now far more openly fluid; the complexity of our ability to function is increasing as we live longer due to technological and medical advancement.
We ready you to greet the future with confidence and curiosity. Philip Patston has a unique approach to diversity through witty, light and engaging — yet apposite and revealing — presence. An environment of trust, openness, curiosity and inquiry, develops leadership capacity to enhance diversity and negotiate conditions to embrace the accompanying complexity, uncertainty and social improvement.
Developing new ways to think about yourself and others, in the context of the future diversity of your team or organisation, is healthy.
