Our Ethos

We have a pioneering spirit, challenge conventional thinking and understand how to lead people through emergent developmental processes. We love to work as thinking partners with our clients; assisting them to figure out and implement adaptive strategies to engage people within a business environment where there are no proven success precedents.

The Art & Science of Organisational Interaction

Science

Engagement Dynamics was born in the natural sciences; in the study of human physiology and psychology. The starting point for all our work is an understanding of people as physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual beings. 

To really understand people and how they engage we actively tap into insights from medicine, psychology, neuroscience, biochemistry, anthropology, sociology and other humanities. We also explore interaction, organisation and systems in the biological and hard sciences. 

 

These scientific principles help us to understand peoples'  choices, responses and behaviours, their energy levels, motivation, competence and capacity, Our favourite theorists help us to make sense of our research observations, to craft effective, transformative processes and to help people to understand each other. 

 

Art

Our business focuses on constant improvement - helping people to get better individually and collectively. To this end we believe in using the arts as a powerful transformative tool.

People never stop changing. As they interact with the world they constantly sense, perceive, interpret, choose and act - becoming different all the time. It is our job to create transformative experiences which lead to better actions.

Using art in various forms allows us to create multi-sensorial, engaging experiences which can facilitate more sustainable, whole person change. We enrich the sensing, perceiving, interpreting , choosing and acting processes to create a context in which people choose deep change. 

Organisation

Organisations are powerful vehicles for societal transformation.They are also messy, complex and constantly evolving which makes them incredibly interesting and dangerous to neglect.

We are fascinated and excited by the potential of organisations to positively impact our world and love being involved in supporting their emergence and development. 

 

Our driving beliefs and values 

INTENTIONALITY

We are purpose-driven and want to do work that matters and makes a positive difference in the world. We strive to make strategic choices and to activate them with intentionality
