TRANSFORM WITH PURPOSE

With our unique expertise, proven methodology and global network of experts and DOers, we can help you to transform your organization along our methodology of the six building blocks of a purposeful organization.

THE SIX BUILDING BLOCKS OF A PURPOSEFUL ORGANIZATION

ALIGN YOUR PURPOSE.

You have a purpose. Our advisory practice helps you align and deploy it.

A strong purpose can transform your organization, but only when it’s completely integrated into your DNA. For it to impact your workforce, customers and bottom line, you need to align and employ your purpose across all departments and organizational levels, from top management to individual employees.

You have a purpose. We help you align and deploy it. Aligning means working with your employees to help them find their purpose in yours. Employing means ensuring that your purpose is successfully instilled in every aspect of the business, from R&D to customer service. In times of disruptive change, working with purpose improves performance and increases productivity. It helps you transform better. This is a holistic journey, and we take it with you.

DEVELOP NEW SKILLS & MINDSETS.

Our learning programs empower your people to become the drivers of your future.

How people work and collaborate has changed drastically in the last 10 years and will continue to do so. To stay ahead, theory won’t be enough. Organizations that shape the future of work will equip their teams—from top management to young talent—with new skills, tools, and ways of thinking while working on real challenges.

Through hands-on, problem-based learning in diverse groups, we help high-potential young leaders develop the skills and mindsets of effective DOers—all while creating real value for your company. For senior leaders, we facilitate learning that empowers them to project, then shift to, the mindsets they need to stay successful in the midst of new challenges and unprecedented change.

CO-CREATE FOR INNOVATION.

We enable better problem solving leading to more relevant solutions.

What sets innovative companies apart is often an open approach to problem-solving that includes a wide range of viewpoints. People with similar backgrounds and ways of thinking tend to develop tunnel vision. To transition from one perspective to many, companies need to involve the right people.

The DO School’s unique approach to co-creation helps you develop products and services that make a difference. It begins by getting the right people in the room—diverse people from across your company and, if the problem requires, from across our global network of experts and DOers. Our structured methodology harnesses this diversity to co-create fresher, more innovative, more effective outcomes.

BUILD A MOVEMENT.

Whether it’s transforming your culture or launching a bold new strategy,
it can happen only if your people are mobilized.

When you’re trying to bring change to an organization, co-creating a movement from within is far more effective than taking a traditional top-down approach. By building an internal movement that inspires and activates employees from bottom-up, you will gain momentum throughout your company. 

With a track record of successful movement-building, The DO School can help you create the momentum to drive your initiative forward. First, we help you to identify potential employee leaders. Then, we give those leaders the mechanism, tools and training to engage, multiply and grow the movement across every part of the business.
