We enable people to succeed – together
What we stand for
We believe in continuous learning and development, and encourage everyone to achieve their full potential.
Experiential learning is our key method to enable individual growth and the ability to develop, and we create innovation with our “how can we do that” approach.
We understand and meet the needs of our clients through being clear on aims, setting stretching targets and finding the best possible solutions.
We make things happen, take on personal responsibility and maintain the highest possible standards in everything we do.
We operate on a basis of trust, respect and partnership with our clients and we are transparent in everything we do.
We value differences and believe every individual has something to offer.
Our Core Purpose
We enable people to succeed – together
to conceive and realize change, transformation, true clarity of purpose and organisational aims, and the strategies and culture required to get there.
to develop the fundamental skills of leadership and human co-operation, such as; aiming and planning; dealing with ambiguity and uncertainty; integrating people, gaining commitment and reaching wise agreements; building on individual strengths and the ideas of others; working collaboratively in a virtual world across cultural and geographical boundaries; giving and receiving feedback; reviewing to continually improve team performance.
to raise self-awareness and understanding; to build confidence and the aspiration to improve; to build resilience in ones self and in others; to intentionally apply learning with a focus on continual skill development; to reflect on one’s contribution to the team, building on strengths and personal performance.

Our offer for home office and hybrid work situations
Since March, the ways in which we work – as an individual and as a member of a team and organisation – have changed significantly for millions of people in all kinds of settings. People whose usual place of work was „in the office“ were forced from one day to the next to move their work setting from the company office to a home office (whatever that might look like) and to establish a daily routine and well functioning infrastructure. In some cases people have returned to the office, perhaps to work there for a few days each week. For others, their home continues to be their full time place of work. As things stand, this new way of working will continue to accompany us for a few more months; for many, the return to full-time working in the company office is now history.
At Coverdale, we have had the privielge to work with hundreds of people who have been impacted in this way over the last six months. Our experience has highlighted that for some employees the home office has become an enormous burden; they may live in a setting that cannot provide them with a comfortable, functional, quiet working atmosphere. For others, it has been a great opportunity to try out and, over time, perfect this „new“ way of remote working – working from a home office has enabled more peace and quiet, reduced commuting times (and costs), and productivity has improved in many companies as a result.
What has become crystal clear is that we need to develop a different yet complimentary skill set when working remotely, so that people remain engaged, connected, productive and effective, even when physically separated from their colleagues and company office environment.
At Coverdale, our extensive experience of these new ways of working gained through our client engagements, and from within our own organisaiton, has enabled us to advance learning and development formats, programmes and offers that build these new skill sets; raising awareness, building understanding and developing relevant and useful skills; in virtual spaces, in physical spaces, and in a combination of both.
If this is relevant to your situaiton, and you’d like to know more, please contact the Coverdale team in your global area, so that we can provide you with the necessary information about enbaling your people to succeed – together.
