SERVICES

Mobilise your entire organisation around your top strategic goals

We help Founders and C-Suite execs multiply their impact and achieve 'impossible goals', by building committed and adaptable organisations that thrive in volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environments.

ABOUT YOU

You have an extraordinary track record.

But you know there's a whole new level of impact available.

If you’re like my clients, you've a track record that others would die for.


You’re an ambitious and quick-thinking problem-solver. You love the challenge of fast-moving and complex situations.


But you know you’re still playing too small a game. There’s a new level of impact and significance within reach.

Here’s what we often find holds top-performers back from exponentially greater impact:

  • Firstly, you’re too busy with operational concerns. You’re spending too much time on “$100/hour” activities and not on “$10,000/hour” activities. There’s so much on your mind that you’re overlooking the key strategic move that'll take you to another level. The one conversation or one project that will change everything.
  • Secondly, there’s a bottleneck in your business. You think it’s the lack of ‘good people’ - but actually, it’s that your leaders have ‘traded on competency’ and haven’t learned to create teams that are truly committed to your vision and capable of adapting to constant change and uncertainty.
  • Thirdly, perhaps you need to revisit your own sense of clarity and courage. The thing is, you can stay in your comfort zone and it still looks incredibly impressive to outsiders. But if you get clear about an “impossible" vision that will define your life’s work, your world will change for ever. So - what's so important that you simply have to 100X it?

Strategy. Leadership. Purpose. We work at the intersection of all three, and so if you're looking to achieve something exceptional in your business or life, perhaps we should have a conversation.

ABOUT US

I'm Richard Medcalf, Founder of Xquadrant

I’ve been obsessed with the intersection of strategy, leadership and purpose my entire life.


I've spent over 23 years working with some of the best companies and highest-achieving leaders on the planet to successfully navigate volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) technology-driven business.


My success has always been my ability to think deeply at a systems-level, to see not just the surface effects but to understand the deeper causes, the feedback loops, the dynamics at place, the ‘hidden surprises’ - both on a strategic level and on a people level.
