create balance

it's time for balance

Just look around you … balance is a proven concept, it’s everywhere.

It’s how we evolve. It helps us adjust our position relative to the world around us, so we can survive, succeed, and keep moving forward.

If you’re running any kind of organisation, you really, really need balance to achieve your aims and objectives.

But what if you’re setting out to help build a better world?
What if your organisation is all about good people doing good things?

At createbalance, we seek out those who are making a positive impact, so we can help them create the balance they need to play their vital role in building a better future. Keeping them connected to their values, strengths, and sense of purpose, we help them find, maintain and improve their balance – so they stay on course and achieve their objectives.

Create balance is what we do. It might be just what you need.


keep moving forward

Creating balance across your organisation gives you the clarity, energy and agility you need to respond effectively to the external world, whilst staying true to who you are, what you do and why you do it.

Balance is an underrated principle of everyday life. One you might not notice unless it’s not working as it should. It’s what gives a business its strength and stability, its movement and its momentum. It looks easy, but it needs practise.

That’s where we come in. Our consultancy and creative thinking mean you don’t have to figure it out alone. Our approach helps you to stay connected to what is important and why, then adjust your position relative to the things around you. This might involve radical change or a giant leap of faith, careful planning or protecting what you do well. Or all of these at the same time!

Whatever it takes, we help you develop the capability and confidence to get the balance just right, so you survive, succeed, and keep moving forward.

Feeling of value and delivering value are indisputably linked. True value is recognising the benefits of each.

no going back

Can we go back to how we did things before? As we lift ourselves out of crisis or disruption, our instincts say return and rebuild… enticing us back to where we once were. This always feels a comfortable and familiar starting point for our onward recovery. But this time, going back to how we did things, may not be the right choice...

doing and being

People are looking for authentic leaders. Authentic leaders balance both... perfectly. There’s a new respect and a fast growing need today for authenticity.
