April 26th 2018 | Welcome, growing your people, building your business

who we are

What do we stand for?

Building (social) influence: we encourage everyone to have down-to-earth, jargon-free conversations about people development, a sense of humour is often helpful


Building sustainable systems: we believe that effective leadership is the foundation of people and teams performing at their very best


Expressing possibilities: we have a saying “agility is the new competency”. This means having an insatiable curiosity for learning and believing in the potential of every person we meet.


Driving creative innovation: we don’t follow the crowd, we are famous for introducing our clients to the latest thinking, tools and best practise in learning and development.


Courage (trusting in abundance): releasing potential & driving improved results is in our DNA.  Simply speak to our clients, pilot our programmes & hold us accountable for delivering these amazing changes.


Enabling others: is what we do, because this is what drives sustainable change & peak performance!

We see our role as ARCHITECTS of change, supplying the foundations, tools and building blocks for a high-performance work environment. But like an island ARCHIPELAGO, a business comprises very different yet interrelated individuals.

Enabling your people to work better together can be challenging. ARCHIPELO offers an integrated approach: a blend of skills-based training and coaching. It’s bespoke to your needs and delivered by successful business leaders.

We look at the multiple factors that shape productivity and support individuals and teams to be the best they can be. By inspiring a joined-up and positive performance culture, we make your business bigger than the sum of its parts.
