Chimaera Consulting Limited was established in 1999 to provide consulting and training services in people development. Based in the Thames Valley, we're well-placed to access clients across the UK as well as overseas.
Our core business is in helping managers to become effective in getting results through others. Lots of companies offer that of course, and we don't claim to have a magic cure-all that others can't provide. However, what we do give our clients are credibility, practicality and quality. The methods we use bring results, they're based on first-hand experience, and they're tailored to suit the client's needs. We don't run off-the-shelf or public programmes, but provide solutions with a style and content to suit our clients' needs. Our products work because of our versatility, and because everything we do is based on practical solutions that deliver results.
At Chimaera Consulting Limited, pretty well anything is possible, but here are some of the training programmes and other services we have ready to go right now.
Chimaera Consulting Limited (pronounced "Kime-eera") owes its name to a number of inspirations, some more prosaic than others!
A chimera in biology is a changeling or "sport" that grows from an existing organism, but with different features. Thus plant breeders depend on chimeras to produce new varieties, and we should all worry about bacterial chimeras that have developed resistance to modern antibiotics. The analogy is that developing effective people and organisations can be done from an existing base, but requires a step change that is greater than a simple evolution.
The Chimaera was a fearsome fire-breathing monster in Greek mythology, that many heroes had tried and failed to defeat. It was eventually overcome by the unlikely but smart-thinking Bellerephon. So, whilst change and uncertainty are feared by many, it's also possible to overcome them if you adopt the right techniques.
Finally, Chimaera is a name used by TVR, British manufacturer of some of the fastest production sports cars on the road. In this context, Chimaera represents surefire power and energy, stunning performance, and the envy of others - and all in a highly cost-effective package! You can find out more at the TVR website.
