Dialogue Boost

Our Dialogue Boost draws on mentoring, peer coaching, and team facilitation, uniting people across silos to explore relevant questions of culture and evolution.
Dialogue in paper


Evolution in culture happens through dialogue, not on a Gantt chart. Our Dialogue Boost brings people together across internal departments to explore the questions most relevant to them.

How does our culture slow us down? Why do our colleagues not worry about sustainability? How shall we secure buy-in? What will our customers pay for, or not? How do we secure change that lasts?


We facilitate internal conversations to ensure good dialogue and outcomes. We offer content and guidance, and enable peer coaching so knowledge is shared.

Standalone or within a culture programme, this technique energises conversation, learning, and action to solve the real problems teams face.

People find Dialogue Boost both fun and relevant.


Here, the emphasis is to find novel ways to shift perspective, modify behaviour or communication, and adapt approach – and so find new paths to consistent and strong performance.

From hand-on experience, we know that to run a business, engage people, or encourage new ways of working is not easy. We explore the challenges you face in an empathic yet no-nonsense way.

Where relevant, we structure the conversation using models of leadership, culture, and change, to introduce ‘best practice’ or to offer fresh takes on ways to navigate a situation.

We offer the challenge, along with understanding, guidance, and support, that you find in a critical friend.

In practice

We hold in-person or video conversations, usually over several months; each session lasts one to two hours.

Where appropriate, our work is informed by recent appraisals you share with us and/or directions suggested by your line manager.

At your discretion, we run psychometrics or an online 360 for you. We can also gather confidential feedback from your colleagues and recommend ways to strengthen relationships and outcomes.

I’ve worked with Quentin for years now and I’ve greatly enjoyed his ability to get me to think more systemically and at a higher level than the day to day work often allows.

Head of Sustainability

Quentin draws on his wealth of experience as both a leader and a coach to challenge thinking and reveal a new direction. He has lots of practical advice for improving communication, engaging with stakeholders, and shaping a vision.
