A Little Bit About Us


The CRA originated after a numerous years of working with major organisations as an international trainer and consultant. 

Feedback from many workshop attendees, executives, department manager, project managers and many others, consistently highlighted the frustrations and unacceptable conditions under which people were expected to perform their duties to the "Best of their ability".

From these discussions and many other things reported to me, was born the desire to create a system that would help organisations regardless of industry to bring Real Issue Awareness to the leaders and management who were committed to transforming their company and be instrumental and actively involved in the change, instead of just delegating it.

Work Culture Underlying Challenges

In talking with many managers...

Other Companies we have had the honour to work with...

“The CRA application has made it possible to efficiently and with minimal effort, identify organisational strengths, concerns, levels of motivation and weaknesses across the company. It produces immediate and valuable data that provides our senior managers down to the supervisor, information that clearly shows leaders, what they need to know about their respective teams and organization. 

With the help of the CRA, identifying and understanding the cause is already fixing 50% of the problem. Our company is glad to have been introduced to this very efficient application.”

Origins of the Culture Risk Analysis

... having spent 25+ years working in the corporate sector consulting and conducting workshops for major organisations locally and internationally. 

This background coupled with previous years as an IT and Business consultant and studies in Organisational Behaviour, Abnormal Psychology and Psychotherapy, provided golden opportunities to work with the some of the worlds largest organisations.

A small example include: 

IBM: For 5 years on IBM's World Wide Project management initiative facilitating Project Leadership and Advanced Leadership workshops.

Fletcher Challenge: 10 years delivering Leadership and Behaviour based workshops, Fatigue Countermeasures and Emotional Energy Management Workshop

Hewlett Packard:  4 years with Hewlett Packards delivering Leadership and Project Management Fundamentals and accepted multiple invitations to deliver training at their annual Project Management University gatherings. 

Singapore Airlines: 3 years facilitating Team Dynamics and Work Culture based workshops. 

Shell Oil:  4 years delivering Project Leadership and Emotional Energy Management (Working in High Pressured Environments) workshops Leadership and Cultural change across Sth. East Asia.  (For more see desallen.com)

This international exposure enabled closer inspection of how company's worked and how that affected working cultures and company performance - Operationally and Financially.

The main challenges they faced as companies, transcended international and cultural boundaries and were basically the same.


Underlying Culture Challenges

Great Leadership at EVERY LEVEL Creates Great Companies

From workshop attendees over the years around the world, it was clear that an enormous amount of time and money was wasted and lost unnecessarily, due to the way people interacted and related to each other. 

This is the primary breeding ground for multiple dysfunctional cultures to evolve - within the same company. 

A main indicator was where Management (including Executives) failed to maintain connection with the workforce thereby missing opportunity to develop strong professional relationships and work ethic. 

Shareholder demands, KPI's and Performance were a common focus that was shared. The real human centred issues and what was really driving the company, were being ignored in the majority of cases.

More specifically - employees not being listened to; not having constructive feedback; not having a 'voice'; feeling undervalued and not being 'part' of the company; unrealistic expectations on work completion timeframes; and little or no concern on the personal impact decisions made had on a person. 

"At times we're not treated very well, we are only there to get the job done..." as one workshop attendee politely and succinctly put it. 

Variations on this theme was often presented regardless of the countries in which I conducted the workshops.

A core message here is, that poor working cultures transcend international boundaries. 

This is what led to me designing and developing the Company & Culture Risk Analysis.
