How we make things happen. For real.

First and foremost: our years of experience in successful delivery of change processes have taught us the importance of consciousness as the key success factor in becoming a more purposeful company. In order to make conscious change work for real, we’ve defined six practical game changers:

Gamechanger 1/6
Start with self
Pursuing a purpose, whether it's individual or organizational, needs to be authentic and intrinsic in order to be credible. That’s why we start out by helping the leadership to develop an authentic awareness of one’s self. HeartWork firmly believes this to be the best starting point towards becoming a purposeful organisation.
Gamechanger 2/6
Purpose-driven, but down to earth.
We’re very aware of the fact that organisations can’t become ‘purposeful’ overnight. It’s exactly why the sheer ambition that’s often revealed in purpose formulations usually leads to feelings of hopelessness. Our step-by step approach means that we ascertain the current level of maturity of your organisation, in order to define the next attainable steps to get moving in the right direction.
Gamechanger 3/6
Bring in the specialists
The best way to kill a change process is by only getting management involved. We need the rest of the organisation on board as well. Plus, from our ecosystem of conscious specialists, we bring in the people who know what they’re talking about. For any industry, we either have access to a specialist or we can easily find one through our ecosystem network.
Gamechanger 4/6
Work with the next generation.
It’s our experience that the game completely changes when we involve those for whom sustainability isn’t just an option, but a must. That’s why we started the HeartWork YoungChiefs initiative: a talent pool of people with assessed high leadership potential and a strong passion for sustainability, who we train in conscious change and everything that goes along with it, both on and off the job.
Gamechanger 5/6
Ownership stays within your organisation.
We wholeheartedly want change to be genuine and thus, we need you to be able to continue the process after we leave. Alongside our purpose and change management specialists, we bring in our Young Chiefs as transition leads, with the intention of having them stay with your company after the rest of us leave. This way, attained knowledge and talent doesn’t leave the building, and the trusting environment in which your purpose can blossom stays intact.
Gamechanger 6/6
We’re about conscious change, not billable hours.
HeartWork is not your typical consulting firm, pointing out new problems so we can sell more hours. That’s because we’re not driven by profit. The HeartWork company is 100% owned by the HeartWork Foundation, which invests profits in developing future leaders and in businesses, initiatives and NGOs that do good. Be sure to know that all the money you spend on us is indeed applied as a force for good.

By conscious change we mean a transformation process that starts with true and authentic awareness of the self and the world around you. At HeartWork, we’re not diving into the process of change as quickly as possible in order to generate Excel sheets and PowerPoint decks that look impressive. Instead, we help you to slow down, step back, create a psychological safe space and take a deliberate and conscious look at the issues at hand. You’ll be surprised by the new things that you’ll notice. Download our whitepaper to discover how the conscious perspective is absolutely essential for change in your organisation.

    Let’s embrace change.

    We believe in conscious change: If you and the rest of your company is truly consciously involved, we can overcome perceived limitations, bring dormant forces to life, help people to move out of their heads and into their hearts and shift the attention from the problem to the solution.
    We’re also very conscious about the power money beholds, that’s why the HeartWork company is 100% owned by the HeartWork Foundation, which invests profits in developing future leaders and in businesses, initiatives and NGOs that do good. Be sure to know that all the money you spend on us is indeed applied as a force for good.
