OUR PRINCIPLES //

At Complete there are six principles that guide all our work, we are:

Diverse

We believe in inclusivity and the value of inner and outer diversity. We work to make sure there’s equity in our business and equal access for everyone. We care about diversity because it delivers better quality answer, wisdom and ultimately system justice. We’re proud to have gender parity right across the business as well as wonderful ethnic mix of races and nationalities.

Compassionate

We recognise the world is complicated and change can be difficult. So we have compassion for ourselves and our clients who are often under intense pressure to deliver to multiple stakeholders.

Deliberately Developmental

We see development  as central to how we work together, and as a strategic advantage. This means we invest significant time and effort into the development of every person in the business as well as every group of people within the business, with the intention of helping them mature.

Networked

We don’t believe in silos or hierarchies. We are a networked organisation with strong operational, cultural and strategic bonds right across the business. We work in crowds regardless of seniority, longevity or role to build networks with our colleagues and with many stakeholders outside the business.

Crowdocratic

Given the complexity making the right decisions is often very difficult. So we use a new form of decision making. It’s called Crowdocracy. It integrates the views of everyone, promotes engagement and alignment and unlocks the wisdom of the crowd enabling everyone’s voice to be heard.

Rewilded

As founders we believe in the beauty of human nature. We work to create the right conditions and give people the space to grow. With help people’s natural beauty and innate intelligence emerges. We continually evaluate what works for everyone and cultivate the company ecosystem to create a culture where people can truly flourish.

Clients //

We work with great companies that understand that their most valuable asset is their people.
