Theia. A Specialised Team Of Experts. 

"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Niccolò Machiavelli


About Theia


Theia has formulated Leadership and Governance training to help Senior Leaders develop the attributes and awareness necessary to drive  change through effective Programme and Project Governance.  Research has shown that  individuals are co-opted on to governance bodies and teams often with little or no training or experience. This has the potential to be damaging for the project and the individual concerned.

Our courses provide a unique insight into project failure and how to avoid it.

Our approach has its roots in Behavioural Science.  Behavioural Science focuses on what people ‘say or do’ compared with Behavioural Psychology which focuses on what people ‘think or feel’. Objectively observing what people ‘say or do’ provides a reliable framework for managing behaviour in the project and governance environment.

At Theia we are agnostic about the framework or methodology you adopt or follow. 

We will, however, work with you to create psychologically safe environments to maximise the effectiveness of your governance.  We will also work with your people through our modular courses, Games Projects Play and Through the Looking Glass.  They provide a memorable way of classifying patterns of behaviour, linking them to potential modes of failure and, hence, mitigating risk.  Building on the communication skills of active listening, observation and comprehension, at the end of our courses your senior leaders will be better equipped to effectively deliver change.
