    "The challenging task of facilitating the combining of three owner and five non-owner participants, including the development of a unique commercial framework, is a testament to Alchimie skills in drawing disparate views into alignment. The support of the Alchimie team in assisting the management team in the development and application of the peak performance plan has been instrumental in the successful establishment and ramp up of the SCIRT organisation. Tim Kaiser, in particular, worked well with the team to remain focused on their performance in service of the “noble” purpose. Andrew’s support of the Board and General Manager has been pivotal in the establishment phase of the organisation."

Our Approach

Within Alchimie, we focus on understanding (like really!) the issues underlying each client’s engagement request. This positions us to work with the client to co-create with them an approach that has the most likelihood of causing a sustained shift in perspectives and generating a powerful impact.  This means that we draw sparingly on theory, models and templates (although we do have an extensive library), and only use them to facilitate specific conversations and to craft the right questions.
