See Axe in action!


In today’s highly competitive and fast moving world, more than ever business’s need to learn how to stand out from the crowd.  To stand out, we need to think differently, to experiment, to innovate, to try new things and explore new ideas.  This is what Grant ‘Axe’ Rawlinson calls the  ‘Explorer’s Mindset’ and is about being number one by being unique, instead of playing in the same field as everyone else.

The ‘Explorer’s Mindset’  encompasses the ability to:

  • Drive INNOVATION and transform bold, unique goals into reality 

  • Make COMPLEX DECISIONS together based on uncertain and ambiguous data

  • Build highly ALIGNED & EMPOWERED teams to navigate complex environments 

  • Take responsible RISK & learn to effectively manage failure and setbacks 

  • Develop ANTIFRAGILE mindsets and organisations
