next step consulting

Next Step Consulting was founded in 1998 with the mission to assist boards, chief executives and business owners to create strategic market opportunities and operational advantages, strengthen leadership and enhance team performance.

Our team of skilled associates collaborate on projects and workshops that deliver outstanding value to our corporate and business clients alike.

Next Step’s Strategy Institute™ is dedicated to exploring the emerging ideas of global thought leaders and practitioners. We distill the most important insights and lessons, so our clients can enjoy ongoing sustainable competitive advantages.  Because the business environment and the Internet continuously evolves, our priority is to support clients to uncover new sources of advantage and assist them in crafting superior strategies.

Our Executive Alchemy coaching process is transformative and includes a rich mixture of intuition, education, action learning, enneagram awareness and practical psychology, specific to each leader and their circumstances.  We work with leaders and teams to go into and through the fires of transformation, to realise and sustain their maximum potential.

Our new clients often find the best investment they can make is to give us a full day with their entire team (or their entire organisation) to help them build World Class Teams™. In a day, we ensure you and your people learn to trust one another, raise awareness around common dilemmas, engage in unfiltered conflict and finally commit to joint decisions and actions.
