HArrison Network

We have been successfully developing teams, leaders and organisational cultures since 2014. We are a diverse, handpicked team of coaches, trainers and facilitators.

We believe that given the right organisational culture, people will thrive. A culture of care: of humanity, self-awareness, responsibility, support and joint sense of purpose allows people to take things to a higher level. A culture of selfishness leads to ultimate downfall. Culture is changed by individuals, leaders and teams interacting differently. 

If we get these right, we have a chance of solving the complex challenges we face at a business, community and planetary level. 

Together, we are changing the world, one conversation at a time.

Our Purpose

We help create the environments in which people and their ideas flourish

We do this by equipping and inspiring people to think, act and lead differently, so we can develop organisations in which people can change the world.

 

Our Principles

  • We walk the talk
  • We only take on work where we feel we can make a difference 
  • We work in partnership with our clients, becoming an extension to their team
  • We believe learning should be set in motion, not in stone
  • We care about each and every individual

Our Difference

What sets us apart is who we are and how we do it.

We are a team of experienced, qualified professionals, working alongside you in YOUR real world to build momentum for long term change. We are flexible to changing business needs and proven in highly regulated environments. Our work is underpinned by academic rigour and a unique proven framework.

Our APPROACH

We pride ourselves on delivering a personalised, agile and collaborative service.

We get involved in different ways with different clients. But it usually follows the same approach.

We evaluate the current state, build trust and safe space, use Experiential Learning (learning through doing) and Applied Learning (applying it to your day job), we ask challenging questions, we gain insights and give responsibility.

All this is underpinned with high quality facilitation and coaching so as to build long term, lasting change.

Our Values

Resourceful

We believe in having the resilience and tools to be able to adapt to our constantly changing business world. We aim to enable others to become more self-reliant and ingenious.

Dynamic

We believe that small actions can change the world, so encourage determination, enthusiasm and a thirst for change.

Straightforward

We believe in being straightforward, honest and not playing games. Keep it straightforward, keep it elegant, keep it memorable.

Generous Collaboration

We believe in the power of true and generous collaboration. Our ability to recognise value in others drives us forward together. Business can be a force for good in the world as well as in our pockets, if we truly work together for one another, not for ourselves.

Community

We believe that thriving work, family and life communities are vital for us to perform at our best. Lets make them brilliant places to be.
