(Re)Make your future
Where would you aim if you knew you were sure to get there?
Where would you aim if you knew you were sure to get there?
What stands between you and the future you desire?
As a leader and manager, how do you ensure the work you put in to make the future a better place for your customers, your teams, your organisation and your own fulfilment pays off?
When all is said and done, only one thing can move you forward from where you are today to the ideal tomorrow of your making: new value.
Your future is the value you create.
Meta Management is an organisational capability development consultancy. We help leaders and teams with the tools, mindsets and skills needed to achieve their big goals.
We apply transformational change practice to account for the effects of disruption and digital technology. Our speciality is operationalising goals and values so every team member feels included and empowered to contribute to success.
We work with small clients through to large enterprises. What they have in common is a people-centred focus, an openness to change, and a desire to do business and good.
At the beginning of 2020 my workplace implemented ‘The Ten Seats’ – a combination of one-on-one and group coaching – engaging Meta Management to assist with implementation of our organisational strategic plan. This was an opportunity to work towards some key goals and also develop our own skills. I was not prepared for just how… much I would learn throughout this process! Isabel introduced me to ideas and concepts that have really changed the way I approach all aspects of my work. She prompts me to think beyond my self-imposed limitations and reminds me that I can be a key driver of strategic change. I look forward to every session and always leave with something new to process and explore. I would encourage anyone ready to empower their employees to reach their full potential to make contact with Meta Management. Read more “”
I would just like to thank you again for the amazing delivery of your workshop. Of all the workshops I have been to, this was the most interesting and engaging. Thank you for your advice and time I appreciate it.
With a growing business comes a growing team and Meta Management have been able to support Elk guiding us through our busy period. They were sensitive to the existing culture of Elk and focused on strengthening the business, team environment and defining our future direction.
We wanted to thank Meta Management for working with us to establish key foundations that assisted us to reach this point of success in our journey. The key learnings, disciplines and advice you provided have been invaluable to us as a business. The thinking we explored as part of our sessions put us on the… right path to undertake and achieve the (Telstra Small Business of the Year) recognition. Read more “”
Recognising change needed to be brought throughout the business and not just to management, we employed the assistance of Meta Management. Meta facilitated group sessions with our people who developed and found a way to consistently articulate our values. Now some 9 months later, we are already seeing a marked difference in the way our… people go about their day to day business with a clearer focus on the company’s goals and how they contribute and are such a part of them. Our service standards and business opportunities have increased as a direct result. Read more “”
Transformations are change programs that enable an enterpise to quickly maximise its value-producing efforts to adapt to new market conditions.
When facing converging issues like unpredictable customers, unfavourable trading conditions, a restless workforce, encroaching competition, regulatory hurdles and advancing technology, adapting means keeping up. Reacting means falling behind.
What transformation will create new value for your enterprise?
Hyper-competition, constant and unexpected change, rapidly advancing technologies and digitised connectivity make the skills, capabilities and confidence for operating in a digital world an organisational imperative.
Succeeding in a fast-changing environment takes a workforce organised for adaptivity and collaboration. Beginning with digital leadership, New Ways of Working will break open the full workforce potential.
The key to an engaged workforce that engages customer comes from the most underutilised of all organisational assets: people able to turn organisational values into enduring human-to-human connections.
Business transformations combine effective management and empowered teams to open new opportunities. Make bigger goals possible, monetise under-utilised assets or add new revenue streams with a business model innovation.
Connect your value proposition to your market with a user-centric workforce that can meet your customers at the point of their buying decision-making for higher returns on your marketing investment.
Whether you are implementing new technology, undertaking a restructure or launching a new business initiative, you need robust change management capabilities to ensure your project succeeds.
How to turn a transformation into new value
1. Know your vision and purpose.
A transformation needs a reason. Knowing and believing in the difference you can make gives change meaning and direction.
Vision and purpose are not statements, they should represent the shared intention and commitment to aim high and work together to bring the organisation closer to achieving them.
Your future is whatever you do – or do not do – to make, or remake, it.
2. Make values and value creation the common cause in all change activities.
The complexity of business today means change must be implemented at speed if it is to have its intended effect, while avoiding the risk of running off course. This is achieved by structuring the transformation around dual core drivers: values (what you stand for), and value creation (what you offer your customers and other stakeholders).
3. Upskill your workforce for transformation.
Don’t let an under-prepared, underskilled workforce hold you back. The reason most transformations fail to reach their potential is they rely on the unrealistic hope that, without training and preparation, their people will have the necessary experience and capabilities, not only to implement an effective transformation, but to perform in the newly transformed environment
Businesses don’t fail or scale – their systems do. Change the system, and the business will follow.
Whether you are looking to reverse a negative business trend, build a war chest for future growth, or move quickly to take advantage of an opportunity, transform your system to transform your results in just 90 days.

I recommend this book to you if you are concerned that change is a recent phenomenon negatively affecting your work life; it is not. One thing is constant, and that is change.
