Helping you tame chaos

"Everything tends towards disorder" - Second Law of Thermodynamics (short version)

What we do


Ever wonder why at the end of the week your house is always messier than at the beginning? Or ever wondered why organisations without clear leadership seem to decline and become chaotic so quickly?

There's no mystery to this phenomenon - left to their own devices, every system known to humans gets more chaotic and disordered over time. This is not a matter of opinion: it is the second law of thermodynamics.

This is why we need leadership, clear direction setting and an ability to align the efforts of our teams and organisations. And it's what we, at Anticipate, are passionate about helping you do better.

In order to lead effectively, you need to know where you are going, how to travel there and how to take people along with you.

The problem, overlooked by many organisations, is that your destination stubbornly refuses to stay in one place. Your environment keeps changing on you, shifting the goal posts.

To deal with this and still lead usefully, you need to anticipate this change and prepare your team for it. That's what we're all about helping you to:

1. Look ahead - spot and understand the trends and drivers that are likely to impact on your organisation.

2. Plan ahead - this is not about predicting the future, but rather preparing for different possible futures so you and your team can operate agilely, while keeping your outcomes in mind.

3. Get ahead - mobilising and inspiring your team to work together by focusing your collective effort and learning through experimentation.

So go ahead, contact us for a coffee and chat about how we might be able to help you lift the performance of your organisation or team to new heights.
