How We Work

Mutual Ambition

We treat each client’s business challenge as if it was our own. Mutual Ambition is about deeply understanding our client’s reality, desired outcomes and real nature of possibility. Together this creates a shared agenda, unlocking the full potential of our client’s business and our capabilities.


Over three decades of experience has created a powerful set of tools and ideas to design holistic work that delivers real results. We believe our work is deeper and more lasting as a result.

True Partnership

Real breakthroughs in performance – genuine differentiation, innovation, true leadership, progressive organisational design – require significant trust to build collaboration. Our model and values are founded on creating lasting partnerships with clients, many which extend back through the history of our business.

Focus On Outcomes

Taking shared responsibility for results has some important implications. Religiously sticking to a brief, when it’s clear we won’t achieve the result, is worthless. We adapt rapidly to what we learn. We believe in being powerful leaders with our clients, having the vision, skills and emotional courage to make things happen.
