Our Vision

Creating workplaces built on collaboration, trust and belonging

Imagine a workplace where everyone did their best work because they felt part of something. They saw their role in an exciting future and felt motivated to succeed.

That’s our mission: to enable everyone to work at their best by cultivating the conditions that ensure work is meaningful.

Experience tells us that that people can feel fulfilled in the workplace, that leaders want to do right by their teams, and that broken workplace culture can be fixed.

We’ve seen people transform what they do and how they do it, while working with many industries including charities, in the care sector, hospitality, in events, pharmaceuticals, tech and property, to name a few.

Success is entirely dependent on the people who do the work. If people feel unheard, undervalued and unseen, then it’s a no-brainer that a business will fail. It’s equally clear that to make a positive shift, the people have to come first.

That’s why at ConnectUp, we prioritise talking to the people at the heart of an organisation to find out what is really going on.  Our approach respects the fact that everyone, every individual, every leader, every CEO, every organisation, is different, which merits a different response and a tailored outcome.

We spend time building safety, trust, and a network of mutual support that enables people at all levels of business – from those in positions of leadership to those tasked with core projects as much as those handling the administration – to open up and ultimately, change how they think and how they work.

The result – a more connected, fulfilled and prosperous workplace culture.

Maybe you’re curious about doing things differently, perhaps you wonder about how to create change, but you’re unsure about where to begin. It might be that you’re uncertain, unsure, fearful for change or confused about how you ended up where you are.

We’ve supported people and businesses to work through all these states of transition. One thing is clear from the work we do – people have the most rewarding experience when they are guided through the confusion to be able to realise their ambitions.

We can be that guiding force for you.

Whether you want us to lead or support your leadership process, we’ll facilitate honest and inspired conversation that will help you to ask the right questions, stay curious, get motivated, and keep your business fresh with new ideas.

By doing so, we’ll help you cocreate the conditions that are right for your workplace to ensure life at work regains its sense of meaning and purpose, in a way that makes sense to you and your team.

In short, you’ll be rewarded with exceptional results delivered by a newly engaged team.

We value…

Connection / Listening / Trust / Space / Meaningful action

Take a look around most organisations and you’re likely to find a lot of people saying the right things and appearing to do what they should. But look beneath the surface and you’ll notice a startling disconnect – between the desires and ambitions that people and businesses talk about, and how they actually operate.

This inevitably leads to anxiety, frustration, anger, siloed working, conflict, a dysfunctional culture and disengagement.

The good news – there is another, happier, more productive, better-connected way!

All it takes is the commitment to actively engage in a different way of thinking, which is possible when you creating the optimal space and provide the encouragement for people to think out loud and listen deeply.
