STRIDE
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT
BUILD A TEAM YOU CAN TRUST
OUTSMART THE COMPETITION

Our work is  about seizing opportunity. Stride invites its clients to take a Big Step Forward. You don't leap a chasm in two small steps, as Lloyd George said. First you need to take a step back. Then you move forward, building momentum. Stride can help you to do that by simply getting you out of the office.

In 20 years working with some of the world's most successful organisations, Stride has developed an approach based on the following principles:

  1. Get out of the office to gain a fresh perspective.
  2. Build trust by tackling a key issue that can be resolved quickly.
  3. 'Rule no.1: never let a crisis go to waste! There are huge opportunities to be had.' - Rahm Emanuel, advisor to Barack Obama.
Take a look at the business section of a bookshop: most of the titles are out of date simply because of the global recession. At a stroke, warehouses full of texts have been made redundant by the speed and depth of what has happened in 2008-10. In the aftermath of the end of the longest bull market since World War II, there is a sense that the rules are being re-written. When you look back on this time, what will you say about what you did? That you stood idly by?

A survivor from a passenger ferry sinking in the Baltic said that the moment that saved his life was when he awoke to the fact that everyone around him was standing as still as a statue. Why were they doing nothing? Because, he said, 'They were waiting for the Captain to tell them what to do.'

Don't wait for the Captain to tell you what to do: get moving!
