How we work

Clients tell us they like the fact that we work in an open, transparent way and are good at listening and challenging. We aim for a relationship that builds trust and learning on both sides.

Generate powerful insights

We see the world through the eyes of the people who do the work, using a variety of ways to gain insight.

We find what matters to people, and what will make a difference. What gives energy to people? How clear are expectations and purpose? What is the quality of relationships? What communication supports high performance?

Our data helps identify areas for positive change. Our approach to collecting and sharing data is a key part of the change process.

Bring people together

Why do so many change initiatives fail? Sustainable change is only built through genuinely involving people in the process of change.

We employ participative planning tools that help teams and leaders to work out solutions to difficult problems together. As a result, there is shared ownership of planned changes and people throughout the workforce take more responsibility for their progress.

Make it tangible

Making issues tangible and real for people helps them understand the reasons that changes need to be made. This, in turn, helps build a shared commitment to making the changes happen amongst your workforce.

We use visualisation and other techniques to clarify collective goals, motivate action and generate momentum.  We measure the impact of our work so that you can be confident that we have made a difference.



“Couravel’s strength is an unparalleled approach to relationships with clients. I have never known an external team with such an ability to integrate into their client’s team – to a point where the relationships are seamless and the agenda vision and mission are as one.”

“Couravel helped identify that we were not appealing to our peoples core values, and they translated our business strategy into a journey that is easier to communicate. We have updated it over three years and they have encouraged us to measure the impact of our communication and helped us identify the less tangible, but no less important, benefits of our communication.”

“It is the best piece of communication I have seen in 25 years – fun, innovative and simple to use.”

“Couravel has provided a fast and effective way to help us deliver against our project milestones, and introduce new ways of working at an operational and a cultural level.”

Who we are

Couravel has been working on the people side of change for over 30 years.  Advances in technology and mobility means that for most businesses, “change” is now a constant.  Our global and local clients in the private, public and third sectors come to us because of the practical and strategic support we can provide in designing and running effective interventions and sustained development programmes to help their people get to grips with the challenges and opportunities change brings.
