How we work

Four core beliefs that shape our partnerships

These sit at the foundation of the individuals who are part of FORTY and the partnerships we form with our clients.

Systemic

Looking at the whole picture is vital for creating sustainable transformation

FORTY Model

The systemic approach looks at the big picture: the systems you, your team and your business are part of. Working with the entire system, the seen and unseen, doesn’t just tackle the symptoms but the deeper underlying challenges within the whole business. The result is transformation at both a human and organisational level – that works and that lasts.

Practical

We avoid fluffiness. We are realistic, creating change that works, even on a Monday morning

People can be good with words and sound convincing in meetings but here is what matters. You want to change something. Reduce Costs. Shift from being a start-up to a grown-up. Be a leader who enables others to excel. We create interventions and experiences that deliver practical results, directly applicable to everyday working life.

Simple

In the complex and converged world of business, we distil simplicity

We don’t shy away from the challenge and complexity of business, quite the reverse, our expertise lie in finding simplicity within your unique system. Together we dive in, pulling out the fundamentals and enabling people to take practical steps, rather than staying lost in a fog of good intentions and complexity.

Lasting

The impact we have will be sustainable and outlive our relationship with you

If you’re looking for a one-hit-wonder then we are probably not the people you want to talk to. We partner with clients to deliver transformation that lasts. We identify and work with the resources already within your system, so the organisation can continue its own transformation. It means, ultimately, we are actively seeking to lose our clients – because if we do our job properly, you won’t need us any longer.
