Andrew Poole, CEO, MinterEllisonRuddWatts

The NEP team has been guiding us through a key values project for our firm. One of the particular challenges of this project was how, in a 3-hour offsite session, to take the individual thoughts of 50 Partners and Directors and shape them into a core set of values to help start the values design process. Alex [Davids] managed this workshop event extremely well, taking our exec team through the key steps of the design process and maintaining interaction throughout the session to ensure everyone had the opportunity to voice their thoughts. By the end of the session, we had a starter set of values and behaviours that generated interest and attention, and we were able to use these to begin a widespread consultation process with our staff. Finding the right business to help us deliver this project was important. Alex has provided expert guidance to us through to the recent launch of our values and is continuing to work with us to ensure a successful implementation of the values into our business.
