Parrhesia “To voice your Truth, with fearless speech, courage and boldness, openheartedly and in Service of the Common Good.”
The essence of Parrhesian
We are not like everyone else. Our work starts where the others finish.
We use the ‘Parrhesia’ philosophy of courageous speech and deeper connections to drive transformation, respect, fairness, and authenticity to organisations across the globe.
The core fundaments of working with us are:
- Speaking with Parrhesia: When individuals speak with Parrhesia they express themselves with frankness instead of persuasion, truth instead of flattery, and moral duty instead of self-interest and moral apathy.
- Firmness and Humility: We believe in a AND…AND approach rather than a EITHER…OR. In order to reach the desired results in cultural transformation we have developed a language that creates safety and respect for the people we work with in order to take them out of their comfort zone into their stretched zone where all learning starts. Firmness in a sense to address what needs to be addressed. Humility in a sense that we address in a safe and respectful way using inquiry and asking questions rather than telling and advising.
- Cocreation: There is no such thing as the absolute truth. We have no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. We need the client and their wisdom (expertise and content) to add to our wisdom in order to come to a most effective and efficient program that delivers the desired results.
- Continuous elevation of Consciousness: The more a leader is conscious of inner processes and how these affect others and the business (as well as conscious of possible inner processes of colleagues/clients), the more effective the leader becomes when acted upon. This is a continuous process, and elevating consciousness is what we contribute to our clients’ organisations.
