Collective Wisdom delivers sustainable business improvement to medium to large organisations

Our Approach

Collective Wisdom delivers sustainable business improvement to medium to large organisations using a solutions focused approach. ‘The Collective’ works in partnership with client organisations to develop and manage a programme of organisational and performance development, improvement and change. The firms’ collective knowledge and experience blended with that of the client organisation, ensures a route forward to positive change through a programme that utilises a unique approach encompassing consulting, training and coaching.

To help us achieve this, we have developed the 5C’s that lead to positive change…


We CONNECT with your organisation to collectively understand what the CHALLENGE is. We then COLLABORATE with you and together we CONTRIBUTE to the strategy, CHALLENGE the logic and CAPTURE the insights and outputs which are then translated into requirements and deliverables in order to achieve the desired goals. Output programmes can be made up of various elements including Facilitated events, operational and business consultancy, one to one interventions, group facilitation, training and coaching.

One such output programme is ‘Conversations That Stick’, which has already been delivered to Senior Managers, Regional Managers and Retail Managers for a FTSE 100 firm.


Conversations That Stick‘ is a process and method of having formal and informal brief conversations that maximise ways of improving many aspects of modern management such as Influence, Engagement, Performance Management, Talent Development, Productivity and Results. It brings together many aspects of learning and builds skills that improve all aspects of communications. The programme is customisable to suit any specific organisational aims.

Everything begins with a conversation and the first one is absolutely FREE and with no obligation. Within that initial conversation, we engage with you to explore the possible scope and outcome scenarios that might fit the bill.

Then, should you want to find out more, we set-up a Specification Audit, which is a chargeable half-day workshop where we COLLABORATE for the first time to understand the status quo, focus on positive change outputs and develop the programme to deliver it. The cost of this session is discounted from the programme, should you wish to proceed. We then start the ball rolling and together deliver sustainable and meaningful organisational, development, improvement and change.

To start the conversation, call us on 01202 064560 or email
