Our Approach

The Difference

We help to develop and implement solutions, rather than fight battles.

Our goal is to save everybody pain, effort, time and money; to minimise damage; rescue relationships – and bring everyone (including businesses and organisations) out alive.

Solutionism

We use Solutionism to resolve most types of problem, conflict, or complex challenge.

Solutionism is the guiding philosophy that led us to develop our system of principles, methodologies and problem solving processes. In essence, it’s about solution-oriented problem solving.
Solutionism combines conventional financial, commercial, legal, accounting, business planning and management knowledge with innovative problem solving, lateral thinking, negotiation, facilitation, mediation and dispute resolution skills.

It delivers whole of problem responses, recognising that most situations have significant and separate human and issue dimensions that need to be brought into alignment and balance.

Solutionism’s ultimate goal is to produce best possible outcomes, for everyone involved, under all the circumstances. This requires us to guide parties through problem solving and decision making processes that have been carefully tailored to suit them, their situation and their needs.

Solutionists practice Solutionism. We are usually engaged by all parties to solve their problems(s). This makes us: everybody’s friend and nobody’s advocate. Our job is to skilfully facilitate the process through to mutual agreement on the best possible solution.

CONSEPS™

Long ago, while working as commercial dispute resolvers, we discovered that every problem became easier to solve when approached through a structured problem solving process.

So we developed a process called: CONSEPS, standing for:  CONscious SEParate  Stages.

Each progressive stage should only be commenced after the previous stage has been completed.

Stages #1 and #2  cover analysis of the current situation:  (1)  gather and (2) evaluate all available information.

Stages #3 and #4 require the synthesis of possibilities to create solutions and plans for the future:  (3) generate options for improvement and (4) craft the best possible solution from those options.

CONSEPS provides an almost infinitely flexible framework for problem solving and decision making:
