We help organisations align behaviour with strategy and individuals achieve performance with fulfilment.

The key to getting a good outcome is making sure we work on the right problem. Sometimes the problem can be quickly identified and solutions provided. Other times we need to investigate and work with you and your people to work out what’s really going on. Either way our purpose is to build a shared agreement about the problem and to develop a solution that is right for you and your organisation.
When it comes to solutions, whatever these might be, we create context for people involved. This means that they understand what is being done and why. This clarity helps build trust and commitment to the process and the outcomes.
When it comes to delivery we tailor the solution so that it works for you. This includes the content of the material, the activities and the facilitation so that they fit the audience and connect the new ideas and skills with their existing work and knowledge.
While changed behaviour is part of everything we do, we know that most of what people are already doing is great, and that it’s important not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Behavioural change is not achieved by attending workshops. It’s what happens back on the job that really matters. Our solutions address this by helping bosses play their part in supporting change, and where appropriate working with individuals to coach and reinforce the application of new skills.
We want to make ourselves redundant! Our desire is to transfer the skills and tools that we bring to you so that you and your people can continue to use them in sustainable and productive ways.
FMS facilitated the Social Styles and Versatility workshop for the team. The facilitation was fun, engaging and informative. We got insights into the perception of our behaviour by others which has helped us to understand each other better. This has enabled us to effectively manage the group tension levels bringing out the best performance in people.
I see a great opportunity to integrate the FMS tools across the wider education sector and also within our own school to assist in the development of student leaders.
As a coach, Harry brings a balance of theory and pragmatism that provides me with invaluable support to focus on the right direction for my business and to work on both my strengths and weaknesses. His extensive knowledge of business and sales means that he understands the field that I work in to be able to coach me effectively.
Harry recommended a no-obligations meet and greet so that we would both be sure we were a good fit at the start. This fit has been a key to the success of our coaching relationship.
The regular conversations that I have with my coach help me to realise what I am capable of if I apply structure, focus and control. They help me to gain a better perspective and keep me accountable for what I need to do to deliver on our strategy. He genuinely listens and this sets him apart.
Leadership can be a lonely place where you are always giving. The coaching sessions give me the time to focus on me and the space to fill my bucket.
Their skills and knowledge in people leadership and management have helped to stretch me and to grow my capacity as a leader of people.
When you sit down with Harry, he asks you questions, and you find yourself thinking about your issues and the things you do in a different way.
Harry has a unique ability to really listen and ask questions that help me, and the team get to the nub of the issues. He doesn’t have a preconceived agenda and uses reflection and sound structured thinking to enable us to focus on and solve the real problems. This is what is different about FMS – it’s the specific focus on our needs.
The practical nature of the FMS tools, along with Marie and Harry’s expert facilitation and deep knowledge of the material, have enabled us to use these to get the best out of myself and my team!
FMS relate well to all levels in our organisation. They can talk to everybody with respect and are not like teachers at the front of a classroom. They become part of the team and have achieved better results than any other consultants. Our people like them.
FMS facilitation style is more practical and effective than classroom teaching. The results are immediate, and they are permanent. There is a real stick-ability, because the people are encouraged to come up with the solutions themselves. This creates a great positive vibe.
FMS are professionals. Every conversation adds value. The results are tangible, not “airy-fairy”. They don’t tell us what to do but ask great questions that get us doing the hard thinking.
If you’ve got a problem – FMS can come in and quickly analyse the issues with you and help you to get results quickly. The solutions come from us. They don’t tell us what to do, they guide us, and we own the decision.
I spend time after our one on one conversations reflecting on how I could do things differently. Through our coaching sessions – I am gaining a conscious awareness of what I am doing in the workplace.
