All change starts from the centre and ripples outward

Our Identity

Nucleus Insights is a metaphor for the essential human wisdom. Insights derived from observing how things evolve and grow naturally. It represents our understanding that all growth starts from a core and flows outward. The core holds within it the vital energy and pure intelligence. Nucleus is the core.

Colour purple stands for transformation, orange is the colour of life energy.

A tiny spark can ignite dormant inner fire. Outer expressions of excellence and commitment rise from that inner fire.

Most effective frameworks and tools are simple, yet profound. They reflect how people naturally think and act.

How we are different

Facilitators of the process:

We believe teams have the innate knowledge and the expertise needed to deal with their unique situation. Facilitating and bringing out that wisdom to the fore, helping convert it into result oriented actions, and journeying the teams through this process in an environment of collaboration, openness and trust, is our expertise.

Human spirit at the center:

Our approach affirms every individual and builds on the diverse gifts they bring to every setting. We connect people to their inner being and to others around them at a deeper level. Boundless energy is unleashed, when people relate to a bigger purpose, and when they see, they can make a difference. Our methodology is designed to impact individual’s awareness, and allow for shift in thinking and behaviour.

Simple yet profound frameworks:

Our frameworks and tools hold the distilled wisdom of our extensive experience working with people in diverse communities and organisations. They are simple yet profound. They are designed to impact the whole person. When they are deployed with skill and care, people experience new energy and the magic of impossible becoming possible.

Commitment to transformation:

We commit our expertise to ensure that our clients transformation objectives are achieved and sustained over time. We see our work more as a process and not as a set of standalone events or sessions. We weave together multiple streams to achieve the goals of the engagement and to ensure the "new ways of thinking and doing" are firmly embedded in the organisation's foundation.

Facilitation is the art of harvesting the innate wisdom and letting the solutions emerge naturally

She looks at things through the marketing and leadership lens, and is increasingly intrigued by how a person can become a leader or a company becomes a pioneer. These thoughts and insights are captured in her blog.
