Z is for...
Zigzaggedness, defined as ‘the quality or state of being zigzag.’

Take a moment to reflect over the last week. How’s it been? Top of the world some days? Not knowing if you’re coming or going on others? Of course! The human condition isn’t linear. Try though they might, people don’t switch off elements of who they are when they walk through the door (metaphorically or otherwise) to start work. To pretend otherwise is futile.

People don’t come with instructions. Policies don’t cover all eventualities. Employing people can engulf you in perpetual zigzaggedness as you try to navigate the intricacies of getting other humans to do stuff for you. It’s not for the faint hearted, not if you want to do it properly.

Having a trusted advisor who knows what they’re talking about when it comes to people is invaluable, not so they can tell you what to do, but so they can navigate the twists and turns with you. Our approach is to find the best options for your business to get you where you want to be, in the right way. If you’re interested in creating a place where people want to be, so that they can perform at their best, and you’re willing to throw away the rule book with us, let’s have a chat.
