Origins.


In 1995, Nick Bishop was promoted to the role of Chairman and CEO of McCann-Erickson, The Netherlands.

This was the first of many leadership roles spanning 3 decades in Europe, Australia and USA.

He was excited and terrified at getting this gig - as despite years in advertising, he'd never been 100% in charge before.

He asked his bosses for the "handbook", the secret, the roadmap to running an agency.

There wasn't one.

So he created one - and called it The 7 Things.

That process has been used to solve 100's of issues of staff engagement in dozens of service businesses from as small as 30 people tor organizations of over 500 in Europe, Australia and the USA.

What sort of business leaders hire us?


Tenacious, confident, change makers who are in a hurry.

Often they are brand new to the position and want to demonstrate visible change, quickly.


What scenarios are we brought into?


1. We are in (big) trouble here. Things have gone to shit. We need to stop the hemorrhaging - fast.

2. Things are fine, but stale. We need fresh energy to get stuff going again.

3. Demonstrable Change Needed. "I need to show my boss/client/team/investor that we are doing everything we can to drive engagement of team members here.
