What We Do


How do we make decisions? What’s our impact on others? How do we do things? How do we express our values?

Duncan’s core business is helping leaders work more effectively and make better decisions and creating more inclusive cultures. Our methods are especially useful for handling challenging topics or emotionally charged situations, for gaining clarity and awareness, and for team and organisational alignment.

We help leaders increase their capacity to build trust, hold open and honest conversations, make more inclusive decisions, build high functioning teams, use the power of diversity to solve problems, and build stronger working relationships across lines of difference.

We support clients to build positive, effective cultures that respond well to issues including globalization; sustainability, equity, and social responsibility; productivity; attracting and retaining talent; creativity, innovation, and problem solving; and service delivery.
