“Culture is most closely related to high organisational performance over
time when it is strategically relevant, strong and has one core value focusing
on innovation/adaptation/change.”

– Jennifer Chatman -

Why KoeN

Organisations need to constantly solve their performance and growth challenges. In the fast changing environment,
it becomes imperative that the associates develop capabilities faster than the “market”. This means that the “Leaders”
need to change – grow and develop, faster than those associates, and even faster than the growth of the organisation.

In other words, while the development of leaders for succession planning is given for an organisation, development of
leaders at a rate faster than the organisation’s growth to create surplus leadership is critical.

It is so self evident, and still few organisations show up as Learning Organisations, and Change Managementis always
a challenge. While every organisation is aspiring to impact the Culture DNA, success is few and far. There is a simple
way out though; if one started by focusing on how learning is not happening, how it is getting sabotaged, and how
it is being obstructed: deliberately, systemically or structurally. Once addressed, what needs to be done
differently surfaces and creates its own sustained momentum till the last mile of change implementation.

After all, can there be anything better than a strong context and enhance awareness for kickstarting a profound shift?

Good organisations and great catalysts in those organisations relate with this intuitively.

If you identify with this, KoeN steps in as your catalysis ally. We specialise in L2L interventions, i.e., Learning to Learn.
Our name for that is Os, the operating system. Operating system of an individual Leader, of a Team or Unit, and of the Organisation.

We always start with the Os. Or reach it. And build up on that.

It is reflected in everything that we do, our design, our approach, our execution and our support. That is the reason
we always refer to ourselves as catalysts and allies.


“The first way to go wrong in bringing fruits of Research to working leaders is to expect them to learn, and then use concepts and models that are abstract and far removed from their daily experience. The second is to tell the leaders exactly what they are most ready to hear.”
