In all our services (consult, train, or coach) from Teal Unicorn, we work in new ways (of course): iterative, incremental, experimental, exploring success with you.

How we work:

We work with you incrementally, experimenting and exploring to find what works for you to maximise results and improvement.

We facilitate you finding the answers from those who know: the ones doing the work.

We add experienced advice, theoretical guidance,and enlightening training.

And have some fun.

Teal Unicorn provides real consulting: we charge for the hours we work and we work only when we are providing useful service to you, which is generally high level advice and planning (though we are also happy to roll our sleeves up and get things done for you too). We tend to steer away from 5-days-a-week contracting except when you need an operational role created or temporarily filled.

As long as we are adding value that well exceeds our fees, and you continue to engage us, we work with you. We deliver results or we stop.

What we do:

We teach, advise, coach and consult to create awareness and understanding of New Ways of Managing and Working, to “prime” the system.

We help set up a management model to govern and manage the work system in new ways; and an “Improvement Machine”, a core team to drive continual improvement to advance the system.

We foster an experiment programme to grow new ways, to explore the system.

We help hack the org to accelerate advancement to new ways, to free the system.

What we don’t do:

We don’t bring boilerplate solutions in white ring-binders. We have the humility to know what we don’t know.

We don’t come in as show ponies then bait-and-switch to kids in suits who deliver the work. It’s all us.

We don’t sell you on commitment to a long-term project. We work incrementally as long as you still want us.

We don’t body-shop other people.

We don’t do contracting by the week, except by special arrangement to help out.
