We strive to help organizations reach higher levels of effectiveness by innovating and leading the market in building and providing organizational development solutions on the cloud.
We see Organizational Development as the driver of performance within organizations.
As an Organizational Development consultant, Diana Seyouri, the Managing Director of SelfStir Limited was frustrated with the limited tools available in the market of Organizational Development, and in addition to that, their prices were exorbitant. Having spent 3 years traveling between Nigeria, Ghana and Egypt on consulting assignments and seeing the human potential in these poverty stricken countries, she and Denkine, an HR executive, decided that it was time for a change. After some frequent trips back and forth to Bahrain where Denkine worked, a plan to develop a completely free Leadership Development platform using 360 degree feedback and peer-coaching tools, was born. Neither Denkine nor Diana cared whether this project ever generated any money. It would be financed purely from personal savings.
In 2011, both founders chose to form a company around the project. There was a need for innovative OD tools with new business models, both founders had experience in the market and they had a huge amount of passion for the idea. Being single and successful, both were able to financially support themselves for a few years without any income, while also investing in the startup.
We provide cloud-based Organizational Development solutions to build highly performant organizations.
We sell to individuals and organizations who share the core values of Organizational Development:
At SelfStir Limited, we take our values extremely seriously and live by them on and off work.
We do what we say and we don’t let people down.
We say what we feel no matter how difficult it may be. In the end, our intentions are pure.
We care about one another at work and outside. We care about what happens around us in our communities and the world as a whole.
We don’t require anyone telling us what to do, we know best and we do it.
We have faith in each other and we choose not to assume bad things about others. We work together based on a deep sense of trust that all intentions towards us are good.
We have a strong passion for development, for ourselves, for each other and for the world we live in. Our every-day focus is on finding new knowledge, new tools and new technologies to help develop people.
We believe in protecting, sustaining and developing the environment we are in, treating people and communities with respect, and serving the common good.
We are passionate about designing innovative and collaborative products that help people and organizations grow and develop.
We don’t live in a disconnected world, so why use disconnected tools? We believe that connecting with others helps us grow as individuals and as organizations.
We believe that people and Organization Development are key to achieving higher levels of consciousness in the work place, in family environments, and within communities of friends.
