August isn't like other consultancies. What we deliver isn’t a document or presentation - we’re going to bring real, positive working practices that your team can implement from day one.
We’ll bring transparency in decision-making and project management systems and train your teams on efficient, clear, safe ways to communicate. We also work with leadership to create the space for your teams to become autonomous, self-organizing, and multi-disciplinary. We’ll help you facilitate better, shorter, incredibly productive meetings. We run workshops to understand and synthesize your team’s problem areas and introduce specific working practices that address those issues.
We cut meetings. We minimize email. We remove silos. In their place, we enable collaboration, we define purpose, and we see joy. When we leave, your teams will be fully empowered and equipped to continue this new way of working.
We’ve even built agility into the way that you work with us: we scope and deliver our work in four-week cycles, giving you the flexibility to purchase as many or as few cycles as meets your needs and budget.
Below are examples of what a 6-cycle engagement might look like, as well as information on hiring us to speak at your event or conference.
We've spoken at events and conferences around the world on diverse subjects including:
- org design
- diversity & inclusion
- undoing racism
- org transformation case studies
- the future of work
Here's a playlist of past talks that August members have done. If you're interested in one of us speaking at your next event, get in touch!
(Please note that we do not speak at any conference or on any panel that does not include women. If you are looking for women to speak at your conference or to join your panel, we've created a fantastic (and constantly growing) list of over 60 amazing and brilliant female leaders and speakers for you to invite.)
