Unlock the potential within your business

In a fast-changing, tech-driven market your organisation’s success and survival depends on riding the next wave of growth.  But what got your team here won’t get you to the next level.

Get a fresh perspective. Join me for a 45-minute Breakthrough Consultation. We’ll clarify the specific ways your organisation must “up its game”, determine the root causes slowing your growth or holding back your transformation, and identify how to get your people to the next level.

I'm Richard Medcalf, founder of xquadrant.

If you’re a leader in a market where technology is driving incredible change, you’ll know the biggest barriers to growth or transformation.

People issues. Mindset, engagement, collaboration, alignment.

In my 20 years working at C-level in the tech and digital sector on strategy, business development and leadership, I discovered that traditional approaches to bridge strategy and execution over-promise but under-deliver in the digital age where employees are permanently overwhelmed and distracted.

So we’ve developed a better way, 'designed for digital’ and creating a new level of clarity, commitment and execution across the organisation.

Get started

Let's talk about you. What do you want to do?


You’re in growth mode and need to capture the market fast.  But what got you here won’t get you there: every level of the organisation needs to step up their game​  

You need a simple and scalable approach to get every team to a new level, fast.


Your business has changed, but your people… not so much.  Resistance, low engagement and ‘legacy mindsets’ are holding your business back.  It seems almost impossible to change.

You need a pragmatic way to create genuine cultural change before it’s too late.


Your business has a transformative solution - but sales conversations are stuck too far down your clients' organisations.

You need to skyrocket your relevance with the C-suite of your customers to deliver the transformation you know is possible.
