Who we are
ON-Brand Partners is what happened when a former chief economist and strategist met an operations change specialist. Paul Stewart and Leah Fisher recognised that putting strategy in context for the people tasked with undertaking it, minimises the gap between what organisations want to achieve and what they actually end up doing.
What we do
Now a much expanded team, we know from first hand experience that business strategy is only ever as good as the people who are focused, engaged and aligned to deliver on it. We believe that this is the reason only 20-30% of change initiatives succeed.
OBP focuses clients on the delivery of better business performance through culture transformation in its broadest sense. We help build cultures that deliver better customer focus, staff engagement, leadership and collaboration. And we can help build strong adoption and engagement for the new digital communication tools that have the potential to revolutionise how companies work together, to generate real innovation that meets the challenges of a rapidly changing commercial world.
Our approach combines proven schools of thinking with our own unique processes. It aligns and engages your people around your strategy, and creates lasting behavioural change. So we’re here to help Engage, Empower and Excite your people to effectively action your strategy as intended. All the while, we remain focused on building your internal competencies rather than a dependency on us.
From executive workshops to pulse-checks, manager development, events and bespoke initiatives, and digital communication platforms, we can get you on the path to better performance.
Why it works
Like all human beings, the actions of your staff are driven more by emotion than logic. It is therefore critical that they’re effectively engaged with what the business is trying to achieve. Some call this the 'soft stuff' but it's actually more about how we are hard-wired. Change and commitment only come when you 'rewire' the way people think about their role and their behaviour in the organisation.
“The essential difference between emotion and reason is that emotion leads to action while reason leads to conclusions.” Neurologist, Donald Calne
As competence and confidence builds, real positive momentum for further change is created and you will see an exciting company emerge - one that is well equipped to meet the challenges ahead.
Since 2010, ON-Brand Partners has been developing the TakeON! program for an international market, based on the learnings of the previous decade. This modular system is delivered in each country by a network of accredited local partners and is currently available in the USA and UK as well as Australia and New Zealand.
