Our Inspiration and Influences
Tricordant’s approach has been influenced by key figures including the likes of Peter Senge, Christian Schumacher, Marvin Weisbord, Ed Schein and Kurt Lewin. We continue to be influenced by them and many others such as Jim Collins, Melanie Klein, Mee-Yan Cheung Judge, Dan Jones, Malcolm Gladwell, Simon Sinek, Dick and Emily Axelrod, Glenda Eoyang, Jay Galbraith, Arie de Geus, Patrick Lencioni, Naomi Stanford, Andrew Campbell, Barbara Bunker and Billie Alban. However, our inspiration and influences don’t stop there.
Today, we invest time monitoring the latest relevant trends in thinking and theories. We consistently invest in training and development for our team; keeping up-to-date with key theories and approaches, such as the application of social neuroscience, as well as developing our skills. This is focused on how we can better understand and help our clients, no matter what sector.
Nevertheless, most of our learning comes from our clients themselves. By working with an impressive array of people, teams and brands over the years, we have amassed a wealth of expertise to address any organisational and system challenges.
Thank you very much for your passion, energy and enthusiasm for our internal Organisation Development Masterclass. You inspired our delegates to think very differently about organisation design and gave them new and innovative tools to choose from and use with their internal clients. The feedback from the delegates at the end of the programme speaks for itself! Thank you
Our Values and Ethos
So much of our work with clients is about changing behaviours, organisational climate and culture. So, we are clear about our own behavioural values and shared ethos.
We value Trust, Hope, Love and Joy. We live up to our promises, we know that there is the potential for things to improve for any business, we genuinely care about building long-lasting relationships and having fun amongst the serious business.
We want to improve the lives of others, which is why we give a percentage of our profits to the Tricordant Foundation. The Tricordant Foundation then uses the funds to benefit carefully selected charities. We also financially support Climate Stewards, an international conservation organisation who help with offsetting unavoidable carbon emissions through supporting community projects in Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Mexico.
