Our passion

Our passion is to add value to the lives of leaders and their global teams.

To illuminate insight, develop strategy and deliver action through personal growth, culture change and cross-cultural effectiveness.

We understand your world. We are experienced international practitioners, having lived and worked in four different continents, we now work with people from 40 different countries.

Our mission comes from deeply held values about the need for increased understanding of different perspectives. Armed with an increase in understanding we can seek to make a difference - in ourselves, in our work and in the world.

Our personal story

This is reflected in the way we live our lives. With a passion for learning, firstly for foreign languages and then about people from other cultures, came a yearning for travel. From travel came international postings and global remits. We have lived and worked in four continents around the world and work with people from 40 different countries.

An intercultural partnership contributes to day-day learning about cultural differences along with a son who has been raised amongst four different cultural influences and an international education. The learning continues as we continue to explore the world and the people in it.

What's in a name?

We have drawn inspiration from the philosophy of the I Ching which has become popularly known as the book of changes. It reflects change within a person, team, organization or nation and the interconnectness between them.

The number 10 suggests that success will be attained through walking carefully.

Walking carefully. Not something we typically contemplate in our fast paced worlds. We are here to support you, our clients, every step of the way.
