We help liberate potential in your work and personal life.
In simple terms we help you find your flow, or mojo, and learn how to turn it on. The following outline is more descriptive:
Pam and Tom help you achieve success using whole systems technology and the holonic model of life, which we've been developing since 1999. We offer expertise built on experiences from changing careers to business management to healthy living to farming to yoga.
Personal one-on-one engagements deliver customised solutions in which sensitive issues can be addressed openly. Our advice and coaching help you nurture the lifestyle you seek. We accelerate acquisition of aptitudes which embolden you to liberate your spirit so you thrive, building enhanced personal health and relationships.
We advise entrepreneurs and SMEs on business and lifestyle issues. You will develop a broader strategic perspective, insightful risk awareness and improved return on investment. Investment and financial advice is available as appropriate. Our experience in advising on family issues and organisation culture fills gaps normally ignored in personal and business development. We also help you develop your business skills, from finance to IT to strategy.
Astraea is all about education, but not of the old style of dogmatic mantra. As well as technical knowledge, we develop the innate potential of each person by nurturing mindful, self-awareness, mental acuity and emotional intelligence.
Our specialisation is synthesising competing objectives to guide strategy and policy and develop internal skills to enable whole system change. We integrate economic, situational and personal perspectives to resolve tensions felt by individuals and teams. We go beyond traditional strategic imperatives, integrating operating disciplines with flexibility and adaptability. We design organisation structures to align stakeholder priorities. We communicate with widely differing communities delivering comprehensive perspectives to open unexplored opportunities.
Techniques employed include breathing, yoga, open-space, biomimicry, parallel decision making, triple-bottom-line analysis and scenario forecasting.
