We believe that highly motivated people working in high performance inclusive cultures will change the world.

The nine members of AdaptiveIG have more than 200 years of collective experience form the core membership of the Adaptive Intelligence Group. Together with more than 40 Associates and hundreds of coaches we have developed a unique support system, the "Adaptive Intelligence Cultural Pathway" for organisations who want to create sustainable high performance cultures.


Dr Gary Coulton - Adaptive Intelligence Consulting Limited 

Gary Coulton brings 35 years of personal, scientific, sporting and business expertise as well as an innovative approach to problem solving to creating the next generation of outstanding organisations. As a scientist he takes nothing on face value but is committed to giving business leaders access to objective evidence that allows them to make wise decisions more often. This has culminated in the concept of Adaptive Intelligence.

Organisations and the people working within them can create extraordinary achievements by engaging their HEART (Purpose & Values), HEAD (Innovation & Analysis) and GUT (Motivation and worth) intelligences. Whilst this feels like basic common sense, creating and maintaining high performance cultures within which people can excel is anything but common and a lot of senseless behaviours are typical of our organisations. The good news is that AI can be operationalized in organisations!

Gary is also a partner with  Denison EuropeKeyhubs and Waggl as key components of the integrated Adaptive Intelligence Cultural Pathway (AICP).

He is also a qualified Executive Coach, HearthMath trainer and mBraining Coach.

Csaba Toth - ICQ Consulting

People think, behave and work in such different ways that it causes stress, confusion, disengagement which leads to high staff turnover and poor customer retention as they have plenty of other options to choose from.  This issue gets much worse across various cultural groups such as generations, nationalities, ethnicities, personality types, professions, genders. Unfortunately measuring  employee engagement and trying to implement well-being program deal with the symptoms only instead of the root cause of the problem. 

When people don’t get along, the problem isn’t incompatibility, it is usually inflexibility AND the lack of self-awareness, in other words, the lack of cultural intelligence.  ICQ Consulting is a global leadership and management development agency helping clients leverage personal and cultural differences through a unique portfolio of assessments, training and consultancy. It has already been utilised by start-ups to Fortune 500 companies in the USA, Europe and Latin America. Our 21st century solutions are designed to address the new challenges of globalisation and based on the expertise of one of the world's leading organisational culture experts, the co-founder of ICQ Consulting, Dr Jorge Mastrapa.

Hilary Gander - Level Vision

Strong leadership, cohesive, harmonious teams and win-win partnerships are the necessities for successful, sustainable businesses. Using a blended approach of leadership coaching, team and client relationship building, I help decision-makers become more effective communicators who motivate people to excel.

Through my workshops and one-to-one coaching, people gain a better understanding of themselves; discover how people really perceive one another and how their behaviours affect everyone. It becomes easier to understand different aspects of the people you work with – particularly important in today’s diverse and complex workplaces.

By seeing themselves and others in a different light, and becoming aware of what people really need, leaders communicate more effectively and motivate and gain cooperation.


Ian Dodds - Ian Dodds Consultants

These have included: a failing chemicals factory which in 5 years was turned round to be one of the best in the Group worldwide; a loss making international business of 11,000 people which became profitable again in 3 years; a Government office, which was one of the worst performers, and was turned round into being one of the best performers in 2 years and was so outstanding it was the subject of a full page article in the business pages of the Sunday Telegraph. He also uses this approach to drive Gender and Race Equality in organisations.
