The ‘D’ in DOOR stands for Design- Design plays a key part in transforming our lives.

Leaders who spend time designing and planning the future, intentionally create better outcomes. Recent research on the brain also highlight the critical need to engage the forebrain in designing and creating the future and to do this collectively if we don’t this part atrophies and we get locked into the daily grind. Whereas managers investigate today to discover explanations for what already is, Leaders invent tomorrow to create something that uniquely addresses current and future needs.

Metanoa offers a number of consulting and educational solutions to help people in organisations design and plan for their desired future including assistance with- Designing whole organisation interventions; Scenario Planning; Strategic planning; Creative and divergent thinking; Organisational design, Simulation design; Change strategies, Talent Management architecture and strategies and

The second ‘O’ in DOOR stands for Observation- In order to learn from what has occurred, we must first know what has occurred. i.e. we must make observations about the action. As Marcel Proust says ‘The real act of discovery consists not in finding the new lands, but in seeing with new eyes’.

Metanoa assists managers and teams to critically observe practices and behaviours that both limit and enhance productivity and growth. We offer services that help teams and individuals to better understand themselves and each other. including 360 feedback, psychometric feedback, conflict resolution, improved communication, listening and dialogue skills.

The ‘R’ in DOOR stands for Reflection and Review: Reflection is usually the most neglected ingredient as most organisations and individuals are caught up in DOing. Reflection is the vital ingredient that incubates and illuminates new ideas. Deep reflection challenges your current mental models or world-views and can change the game altogether. It is uncomfortable, but without it we are likely to achieve no more than trivial change.

Metanoa’s programs achieve deep and significant change including long lasting behavioural change for individuals and teams. Reflective and Review processes are designed into the fabric of all of our interventions and we enable both practical, pragmatic and sustainable and deep outcomes. Our strategies draw on the latest research from psychology, sociology, neuroscience, organisational dynamics,
philosophy and leadership.

‘OR’ in DOOR is a useful counterbalance to ‘DO’. Our programs help individuals and organisations to integrate the DO and the OR and to apply this as a cycle in their daily work.
