Culture and leadership programs for organizations
and executive teams.
I used to think the top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems.
But I was wrong.
The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy. And to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation and we, scientists, don´t know how to do that.
Not economic growth at any cost

Our programs create a clear shift. A ‘before’ and ‘after’. Trust, accountability, collaboration, empowerment and creativity are up. Blame, lack of trust, silo’s, hesitation, and risk-aversion come down. It is easier to get things done. It’s more fun to work here. Attracting and retaining talent is easier.
Leaders’ inner development accelerates. They become more effective in empowering teams and growing the desired culture. Employee engagement rises, as does productivity, safety, and wellbeing. Sick-leave and employee turnover drops. Brand image risks from frustrated employees reduces.
Employees that feel better, have more appetite for challenge. They bounce back more easily from setbacks and upsets, individually and collectively. Change is smoother to implement. The organisation is more resilient to external threats in this VUCA* world.

One program involved 13 different sites across Europe.
Looking back, the various sites said the program felt completely tailored to their situation, objectives, challenges and culture, making it relevant and impactful. Yet it consisted for 80% of the same modules, drawn from one common framework.
“Culture transformation is personal” one client said.
“To change our culture, we first learned to look at ourselves” is what another client said.
Culture transformation is a collective, personal journey.
1. Me – Practice Personal Transformation Creative responses to people & situations. Leaders first.
2. My Team – Grow Healthy Team dynamics Engage and equip team leaders to grow healthy team cultures.
3. Our Organisation – Mobilise collective focus on key cultural strengths and on resolving limiting behaviour patterns.
4. Our Talk – Build positive narratives Deflate negative old narratives, seed positive new ones.
5. Our Structures – Debug draining systems Adapt ‘stuff’ nesting old culture causing frustration.
Zhimble has an innovative approach and inspiring content. People, and their well-being, are truly central. This is a core principle that many leaders carry in their heart, but often gets lost or trampled.
