In the V.U.C.A (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) and Digital era, the way we do business, we organize,
we lead and manage people needs a profound transformation.
This gives us a great opportunity to work better and in a more meaningful way.

Whether you’re an ENTREPRENEUR, a BUSINESS or HR LEADER
here you find a sample of the amazing journeys we can go on together:
Business, Organization & Innovation
Is your organization experiencing a change such as: business model, integration, acquisition, joint venture, top leadership change, business scale up or consolidation? Are you questioning about the evolutionary purpose? Do you want to create a innovation-friendly corporate culture?
Depending on the evolutionary stage of your company we can help in:
Leadership transformation journey
How do you think is the level of leadership in your organization? Are you preparing the leaders to be effective also in the V.U.C.A era? Is your development approach pull or push?
Team transformation journey
Does your team need help because there is low level of trust among people, there is not healthy conflict, there are silos thinking and the team does not achieve results?
Individual transformation journey
Do you need individual support to achieve your purpose, goals and develop your competencies?
HR transformation journey
Is your HR department supporting the improvement of the employee experience at work? Is it helping your company to evolve for the future? Do you have an integrated HR system?

Yes! We want to contribute to make the world better. Our intention is to equip people with our transformation and leadership approach as much as possible, so we can all together make world and life better and to use it in any social field of application each of us feel called to. For us the calling is on 3 main fields: 1) our own human transformation and development 2) organization transformation for a more humanized and meaningful working environment 3) society transformation through community art for a more inclusive, caring, open to dialogue society, especially for people who are at the margins and youth leadership. Here some of our current pro-bono social projects
Pulau Ubin & Living Fisher village
In Pulau Ubin there is the last Living Fisher Village in Singapore. We think that the preservation of the Kampong Life as Cultural Heritage is important and we are supporting together with our partner Artsolute (www.artsolute.asia.com) and Living Fisher Village (https://www.livingfishervillage.com/) the aging local community with art and facilitated dialogue events.
Yishun Community Hospital
Time spent at hospital can be very stressful and sad. We think art can help and we participate to community art activities organized by our partner Artsolute (www.artsolute.asia.com). Every Saturday patients are involved in art activity. This helps them to release stress, spend meaningfully their time, socialize, feeling cared, bond with their family, become more independent and increase their self-hestime. This project aims to be a first prototype for further application in Singapore Health System
Ulab Singapore Hub
Build leadership and community for transformation
We live in a time of disruptive change. How to activate our capacity to lean into the emerging future may well be the most important leadership challenge of our time. How do we cultivate curiosity, compassion and courage in the face of prejudice, anger and fear?
MIT developed a method called Theory U, for leading such change in business, government, and civil society contexts worldwide.
many hubs around the world are born to promote social change and new way of leading using this approach. Singapore Hub is one of them and we want give our contribution to a better world promoting initiatives of social change.
We are a Growing Community creating awareness-based social technologies for change makers around the world. @Marco Polo Consulting we are helping to co-lead this group and we support facilitating sessions of learning on U theory. The aim of this group is to: Keep learning and practicing together the theory U
