Before we could help our clients determine their purpose, we needed to know what motivated us. We ask our clients to take brave, hard steps forward for their organisations every day. How could we ask them to do that if we weren’t willing to do that ourselves.

Here is what we believe about A Better Work.


Doing the same thing all the time yields the same results. When we push outside of our comfort zones, those moments become the greatest opportunities for growth. We know this can be challenging and we want to work with brave business leaders who are willing to take leaps, have difficult conversations and make a difference. 


Work is not everything. Work can, however, help us to feel fulfilled, challenged, motivated, successful, and to be a part of something great. We do what we do to help our clients find those moments both personally and professionally. It’s a balance we practice every day.


Just because something has never been done before, doesn’t mean it can’t be. We cut through complexity to find the simplest, most meaningful path forward. We know our clients are sometimes in a position where they cannot see the forest through the trees. Our job is to help find that path.


We believe in being your authentic self and bringing that to the office. While part of that includes nurturing our clients through their journeys, it also means challenging conversations and clear communication. We believe truth is better than fiction and we will always get to the truth as efficiently as we can.
