in confluence

Apricot provide key services to leadership, change and ESG across a broad range of industries. Our model seeks to implement change that affects the health of leaders, teams, organisations, and the communities in which they operate. 

Our team is multidisciplinary, adaptable and work collaboratively on all our projects to generate tangible results, not just pass you a shiny pdf, or heap a list of things onto your plate and walk off.

 

Above all, our team is united by the lofty goal of actually making the world a better place.

WHAT WE DO
 

Our Approach

Since it’s conception two decades ago, the Apricot team have delivered outcomes and strategies that quantify and improve the health of leaders, teams, organisations and communities. While our firm has changed significantly since it’s first project in 2002, our work has always endeavoured to meet the lofty goal of genuinely making the world a better place. Our primary service lines sit within the area of Organisational Development, and ESG. We see these two divisions increasingly intertwined, and reflective of a shift towards a more ESG-minded economy. Our strength is our ability to connect leaders around a shared vision of success, and importantly, walk with our clients to implement and deliver influential programs driven from the top down and holistically informed by their unique business ecosystem, both internal and external. We deliver this through the synergy of our expert consultants and in-house and external tech, including our own home-grown algorithms, the unique Apricot Health Index ™ digital assessment, the integration of complex artificial intelligence, as well as a suite of partnerships with world leading institutions and organisations to ensure our client's commercial peace-of-mind and the knowledge that their work will leave a legacy.

Our work is purposed to drive and improve the holistic health of organisations, teams and leaders, incorporating an understanding that these organisations exist through and for communities, and the diverse people that inhabit them. 

Over the past 20 years, we have distilled the below seven areas of health that form the pillars of our programs.

Meaning, Relationship, Leadership, Creativity, Agility, Decision Making and Delivery.

 

These 7 areas make up the Apricot Health Index, and they underpin all the services that Apricot offers.

Executive Coaching

I have worked with Apricot for a number of years and have gained significantly from this in terms of insight, thoughtfulness and a much broader perspective.  He steps outside the corporate view to ensure issues are considered in their totality.  Discussing (debating) ideas in coaching, always brings out new perspectives, opportunities and insights not previously contemplated.  Apricot creates a challenging, but solution focused environment that leads to better decisions.   I have benefitted from that both professionally and personally.

Change Management & Culture Change

With COVID-19 disrupting most businesses we have seen that the investment into Apricot Consulting has given us confidence in our ability as an organization to adapt to distributed working models and continue to work effectively together.

 

This investment will go a long way to ensure our sustainability into the next decade.
