Semann & Slattery has been creating change for 20+ years. We are different. People value us. They love our work, our passion and our uncompromising commitment to quality, innovation and social justice. We teach that education and knowledge has the power to transform.
What we believe
We live our work. This bleeds through every course we present, research we do, or coaching we conduct. And we understand that most people want to love their work, just like we do. People want their work to matter. Want to leave the world a better place because of what they did while they were here.
And this is what we enable. What we work towards. We want to help people and organisations learn about who they are and want organisations to learn about themselves and their employees.
We are teachers. We value what individuals do because we are passionate about the power of people. But we also know that some organisations have growth yet to take place. That’s where we come in. We believe quality can be taught and learnt.
We are evidence nuts. We want the facts because then what is done is based on what is. That helps what will be, be right. Just because our clients work with people, and people are (let’s face it) inherently messy, doesn’t mean evidence is not present. Our expertise is in uncovering that evidence, analysing it and communicating those insights to help clients know where they should go next.
Our work changes people. What they believe. How they think. And ultimately how they act. And when you change people, you change their organisations. And when you change organisations, you help to change the world. And this is what Semann & Slattery is ultimately about. Changing the world to make it fairer, so that nobody misses out.
(By the way, we live our work, but after, we also love to play!)
