Who do the world's top legal, healthcare, tax and accounting specialists turn to when they need advice and information themselves? Wolters Kluwer.
Wolters Kluwer have innovated to provide the most relevant information in the most effective and efficient way.
Pentacle were delighted when Wolters Kluwer asked to use QUBE to develop and facilitate a crucial global project being delivered internally. 25 executives and senior managers from the regions e.g. EMEA, Americas etc., across the world learnt the supporting Pentacle's World After Midnight (WAM) concepts and tools and applied them to deliver an excellent solution. The solution required deep buy-in not only from the participants but also from their stakeholders. The project which normally would have taken several months was delivered without a single flight, in less than a month with human engagement and putting in place some new & deep relationships!.
Now, that project on QUBE has been short-listed as a finalist for the prestigious Global Innovation awards!
Wish us luck!

The Pentacle QUBE Spring eFacilitator course began last Thursday. Over three gruelling weeks the participants will be transformed from novice QUBE facilitators to being able to deliver engaging qubinars. The course structure is based on the UK General Aviation course for helicopter pilots. Over the three weeks the intention is to give participants as many 'flying hours' as possible to enable them to go Solo, coach and lead on QUBE.

but Star Wars-styled laser
The participants get to develop an understanding of QUBE, how it functions and the safe operating limits, while becoming very comfortable and familiar with the controls. In the first module they get to explore all the directions of functionality. Everything from making furniture appear to how to find the cheat sheets that accompany every single embedded Pentacle Effectiveness Tool (PET).
The first set of PETs included: Hopes & FearsTM (engaging everyone from the start), SpinCastingTM (keeping everyone engaged during the session), Learning Cycle (the importance of learning in the New World - how can we make sure that we realise what’s happened, including your thoughts about it, identifying a pattern and figuring out how to apply it) and 5PsTM (briefing people in situations of uncertainty and ambiguity).

Each module is followed by a significant piece of coursework. There is a final exam and the course ends with the participants going solo. Find out more about how you can use QUBE to boost your business either as a consultant/coach by enabling you to develop a global market from your desk or as a business leader wanting to develop a high-performing dispersed team.
