The Chalfont Project Partnership Programme
The Chalfont Project are open to creating partnerships with organizations and individuals who may want to take advantage of The Chalfont Project’s vast IP in areas such as behavioural change, culture change, leadership or organizational design.
Culture, behaviours and leadership may be old friends, but people today are desperate for new answers, and we are and want to always be, at the forefront of the new thinking and implementations.
Viral Change™ unquestionably, continues to be the standard of non- conventional approach to change. We are leaders in the crafting of a bottom-up approach to peer-to-peer networks, as the driving force of change and consequent staff engagement and ‘agency’. We believe that the current mantra of ‘employee satisfaction’ does not go far enough and that organizational change is impossible unless understood as a social movement. We develop that view in practice.
Our Collective Leadership approach leaves the room of the C-suite-only responsibility for all-things-organization, to embrace distributed leadership as a true engine of transformation. The old ‘all of us is smarter than any of us’ is still not adopted in many organizations. We know how to do it. Also, Leadership Teams, across the board, are still struggling with what has always broadly called ’Leading Change’. Old questions that need different answers which we have crafted.
Our Smart Designs approach abandons the futile discussion of remote vs non-remote work to provide the scaffolding for new ways of working and being organized. Workplaces do not have cultures; cultures have workplaces. We design those new spaces.
The purposes of a partnership with The Chalfont Project may be multiple, from enhancing current professional work to a joint ‘go to market’ in specific sectors, corporate functions or geographies. Similarly, we are actively considering not just business and corporate set ups but also Public and Third sectors.
The opening of these opportunities is very broad by design.
Our main interest is to work with people or organizations who truly embrace the significance of focusing on behavioural change, modern leadership (particularly collective leadership) or new organizational designs, especially in the ‘new ways of working’ area.
One of our key criteria for partnering would be a good mutual understanding of the level of commitment that our partners would bring, defined in a practical way. We are not looking for a simple, conceptual agreement of joint work ‘when an opportunity arises’.
In this new partnership period (opening October 2023) our focus is on providing our IP (also translated into training, coaching, upskilling, etc.) to third parties, where the partners bring in client opportunities, new ways of working or new expertise from their own domain of activities (geographies, sectors etc) culminating in joint work. Again, we are receptive as to defining the degree of ‘joint work’ because, by design, we will consider a broad spectrum of options suiting the relationship, not an artificial model.
The geographical set up is open to any part of the world. We are UK based but working internationally and our teams are truly multicultural.
If this is of interest to you or your organization, please let us know your type of interest along with your circumstances and background/track record, with as much clarity as possible about why you would consider this possible partnership as truly impactful and of great potential.
Our Lead Partnering Team will assess all the proposals carefully and will let you know if we think that it would be mutually beneficial to establish a face-to-face discussion and follow up.
