Our philosophy

We’ve helped a lot of professional firms implement performance and learning software, and this experience has defined our philosophy:

  • Flexibility: we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution and claim it will solve your challenges. We adapt our platform to meet your needs and support your strategy and culture. And if you want to keep refining and developing your approach, which we recommend, we won’t penalise you to reconfigure the software.
  • Balance: we don’t believe one aspect or feature should dominate performance or learning. The right approach is a balanced one, that supports your key drivers. That could be better career planning, objective/goal tracking, reflective learning, building a coaching and feedback culture or informing remuneration decisions.
  • Relationships: we know the path to realising potential has twists and turns. That’s why we’re committed to collaborating with you, and helping you evolve your approach over time. Unlike some software providers, we want a relationship – to get to know you and your firm and to support you as an extension of your team.


If you’re dealing with one or more of the problems above, and you like our approach then contact us. We’d love to learn more about your firm and discuss how we may be able help.
