The journey to success is not a step by step process.
Knowledge without experience is philosophy.
Experience without knowledge is ignorance.
Wisdom is to know the difference.
“Success is the progressive realisation of predetermined worthwhile personal goals.”
– Paul J. Mayer, founder of Leadership Management International
Growth is part of our evolutionary process and it can be chaotic when things go wrong. People and companies (which are made up of people) need to grow to ensure they remain relevant in the future. Those that don’t will become irrelevant and cease to exist.
At Centred we help companies, and therefore people, develop and succeed.
In 1972 The Harvard Business Review published an article written by Larry E Greiner, “Evolution and Revolution as Organisations Grow”, explaining the different growth stages of companies. Using the Greiner Growth Model as our starting point, we apply our experiences and adapt to the circumstances of our clients. Our focus is to help CEO’s, teams and employees develop through their specific growth challenges to ensure they reach the next level.
Jacques has worked closely with myself and my Management Team for the past 18 months, and over this time, the personal growth achieved by each staff member has been phenomenal.
Jacques’ influence, in conjunction with the LMI programme, has changed the dynamic of the staff approach and managerial interaction in our organisation. His informed guidance has helped us crystallise our thinking as a management team, through goal‐oriented and solution‐based thought processes. Thank you for your mentorship and sharing your knowledge with us, Jacques.”
I enjoyed working with you immensely- very interesting work. I think you are close to if not onto a very pragmatic way to solve the dysfunctions in teams.
I have been working with Jacques for several years now. He is insightful, practical and has great systems that will help any business that needs to grow. I am still a client of his and will continue to work with Jacques in all my future endeavours.
