Why Us? The Shimoda Way

We do great work!  We build relationships.  All of our business comes from referral.  We rely of our reputation for doing our work well.

We take the mystery out of a lot of related diciplines in the world of business and we make it practical and effective.

We have grown a little tired of apparent “best practice”, jargon and buzzwords. We prefer to keep things simple, practical, clear and focused. We call it as we see it.

So if you worked in a “Shimoda” way, it might look something like this.

  • You know why you come to work
  • You choose to come here
  • You know why you do what you do
  • You know how to do what you do
  • You know the contribution you make
  • You are of value (and so is everyone else)
  • You have a purpose
  • You enjoy your work
  • You are busy and productive
  • You can speak freely and honestly
  • You are listened to
  • You are supported
  • You support
  • You are learning and developing
  • You help others to learn and develop
  • You are alive at work

Would you as an individual benefit if this was how you felt about work?

Would businesses be successful and profitable if this was the way of working?

We strive to do this for ourselves everyday.  There is no such thing as a perfect human, a perfect workplace or a perfect business.... but there is always a better way.

Step by step, we are helping others to do it too.

Are we dreamers? Absolutely, because without them; nothing changes. We dream and then we take actions.


Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it – Goethe

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow – Bob Goddard

I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past – Thomas Jefferson
