Advice for real-time  needs

Access immediate and real-time support to guide you through that tricky situation that you are facing in your role as a councillor or as part of governing body

Tailored advice and support

When you or the governing body are in a pickle it is easy to double-down, deny, distract or blame.

However, none of this gets you out of the predicament or solves the issues at hand. A better choice is to get the ear of a skilled, knowledgeable and independent professional to cast light on your situation.

We provide independent and transparent support to help you or the governing body move forward with your integrity intact.

How we work

This support service is designed to objectively guide individual councillors or the elected council through a process to solve complex and difficult issues. There may be signs of dysfunction creeping into the governing body or it could be a full blown crisis where urgent support is needed for an individual councillor. 

Honest advice

Right up front we give you a clear answer if we can help you or not. If we can't, we will point you in the direction of alternate options. If we are the right fit, then we will scope out what is required from our end. 

Deep listening

Next we will take the time to deeply listen to your situation and unique needs. We will explore how we can best support you to reach your desired goal. This could be as a coach, mentor, facilitator or mediator or something in between.

Action oriented

We will then work alongside you with a strong focus on action and change. Any solution will be tailored and responsive to your unique needs. We may call in our trusted circle of experts.
