Our consulting services guide individuals and teams on a journey of continuous improvement and mastery, unlocking their full potential.

The Goal of Our Consulting Approach:

The Care and Growth Thematic emphasises the role of empowerment through hierarchy. What we aim to achieve when consulting with clients is to shift authority and control down the hierarchy incrementally. The aim over time is to make the organisation flatter and convert procedures into policies where possible. Otherwise, shorten them and make them more efficient. 

The net effect of doing this is to make the organisation less hierarchical over time. This increases efficiency and unlocks innovation.

The aim of Care and Growth is empowerment to the point at which work teams can self-manage in pursuit of organisational objectives.

With our consulting approach, we aim to partner with senior leadership teams as they walk a journey of incremental empowerment towards this objective. 

Our Approach on Transforming Culture.

What Our Consulting Service Involves:

We collaborate with senior teams to develop a comprehensive plan for transforming the organisational culture. Our approach includes supportive coaching, training, and diagnostics services over an extended period.

We review the organisation’s systems and structures throughout the process, ensuring alignment with the desired cultural transformation.


An organisation succeeds when it is good at making a valuable contribution to the market. Another way of expressing this idea is that an organisation succeeds when it is good at offering a valuable service to people. The question all organisations must face then is how to ensure that their service/contribution is valuable to people/the market. 

Effective leadership requires a fundamental shift in the traditional approach to management and has a critical effect on team excellence. The original research conducted by Etsko Schuitema, in the 1980s, demonstrated that effective leadership is essentially tied up with the issue of employee trust in management.

Organisations can be described as a team sport in which there is a task that needs to get done and this task is passed around between members of a team or between teams within an organisation. Fundamentally, each interaction of passing the task between team members can have one of two characters: it can either be fundamentally competitive, or it can be fundamentally cooperative/collaborative. 

People are significant on the basis of their contribution; the value that they add to others during their lifetime. They are significant for what they put in, not for what they get out. Being here to give or to serve is, therefore, the core criterion which accounts for excellence in any individual. When people have cracked the code of appropriate contribution, they realise the best in themselves and come to be able to live their greater lives.


Why would I need Care and Growth consulting?

Care and Growth consulting can enhance your leadership effectiveness, drive cultural transformation, and improve organisational performance. A culture consultant is typically needed to assist leadership teams struggling to redefine the organisation to realise greater efficiency, accountability and creativity but is stuck in a hierarchical way of working with excessively centralised control and decision-making. We provide a framework and valuable insights, tools, and guidance to incrementally shift authority and decision-making downwards through an incremental empowerment process. 

What should I expect from leadership consulting?

With Care and Growth consulting, you can expect tailored guidance and support in leadership development, team dynamics, strategic decision-making, and organisational change. Consultants will work closely with you to assess your needs, create a customised plan, and provide ongoing support, insights and guidance to achieve your cultural goals.

What is the difference between coaching and consulting at Schuitema?

At Schuitema, coaching focuses on individual development, personal growth, and unlocking potential through one-on-one guidance. Coaching is an essential supportive element in a transformational journey. But, coaching only involves planning and conceptualising a transformation journey. On the other hand, consulting involves working closely with senior teams to conceptualise and ongoingly review the transformation journey of the organisation as a whole to drive cultural transformation, align strategy, and enhance overall performance.

What are the areas you have consulting expertise?

At Schuitema, we have consulting expertise in various areas, including cultural transformation, leadership development, organisational change, team effectiveness, employee engagement, strategic alignment, and performance improvement. We tailor our consulting services to address your specific needs and objectives.

How long does a consulting relationship last?

The duration of a consulting relationship varies based on each organisation’s unique needs and goals. It can range from several months to years, depending on the scope and complexity of the cultural transformation and the desired outcomes.

Who can benefit most from your consulting?

Our consulting services are designed for CEOs, senior teams, HR professionals, organisational development experts, and learning and development professionals seeking to drive cultural transformation, enhance leadership effectiveness, and improve overall organisational performance. However, any individual or organisation looking to create a positive and empowered work culture can benefit from our consulting expertise.
