THE STORY OF THE RESOLUTION FRAMEWORK™The TCM Group has been creating happier, healthier, harmonious and high performing workplaces since 2001. We are leading the way in creating purposeful, values led and person centred corporate cultures and team climates. When we set out on our mission to make the world of work better, we received a fair amount of eye rolling and a lot of push back. Fast forward over 20 years and the ideas that we have pioneered, in terms of fairness, compassion, dialogue, transformative justice, inclusion, leadership, management and HR, are now becoming mainstream activities within organisations of all sizes and all sectors and across various territories. It is a genuine privilege to be leading and innovating in this space.
Putting People First
When I established the TCM Group in 2001, I had a vision for a workplace which was fair, just, inclusive, sustainable and high performing. Having run a specialist mediation and restorative justice charity for 6 years, and with a degree in race relations plus an MBA, I knew that dialogue, compassion, and positive engagement were the way to achieve this vision.
However, as much as I worked with organisations to embed these transformational principles, I routinely came up against a problem. The problem wasn’t a lack of desire to do the right thing, the problem was a reliance on a set of HR policies and management procedures which pitted people against each other and which were deeply retributive. These policies and procedures promoted the wrong kind of mindset and the worst kind of behaviours. Suspicion, belligerence, aggression, defensiveness, withdrawal and intolerance. These mindsets and behaviours were having a dramatic and adverse impact on our people, on our teams and on our organisations.
I decided it was time for a change. Hence, in May 2013, in front of a room packed with HR and business leaders, I launched the Resolution Framework™.
David Liddle, founder and CEO of The TCM Group
The Resolution Framework creates the culture where people can access the most appropriate route to resolution through coaching, mediation, and restorative processes. We can also take formal action in more serious cases. It’s absolutely the right thing to do. It is evidence based and person centred, and that’s key.
The Resolution Framework™ is part of TCM's unique ecosystem.
The TCM Group’s ecosystem comprises 10 brands which work independently to deliver high quality people and culture, resolution, coaching and leadership services to our customers However, when combined, these brands form a powerful and holistic solution for our customers which spans their entire employee and customer value propositions.
