We are proud to work with leaders who seek transformation and change in the way they work. Who wish to break through their own glass ceiling, who respect their past and the people who brought to their success, while looking forward in a quest to a more meaningful, profitable and sustainable future.
To you we offer a true partnership. We bring years of experience and knowledge, empirical success in building effective teams and helping organizations transform into the better version of themselves. With a drive for unveiling the unspoken paradigms, we promise to come with curiosity, humility and an unyielding commitment to your success.
People want to be led by people, not by positions or tiles. Authentic leadership means that leaders, regardless of hierarchy and role,
need to deeply connect to their own personal qualities and strengths in order to be able to engage people. The first principle in our Leadership Programs is self-awareness and awareness to others. We aim to support and coach leaders on their journey to find their personal, authentic "managerial operating system" – what drives me? When and what do I need to be in my best? What is my unique leadership style and when do I overextend? Leaders who are aware of their own qualities and overextensions are better equipped to handle the complexity of decision making and leading others.
Our Active Transformation methodology includes five critical principles for a successful transformation:
Based on our vast experience in organizational development, we have developed a proprietary partnerships methodology
to support cross boundary collaborative relationships – igniting a new way of working together that speeds up processes, shortens time to market and allows teams to better focus on customer needs.

In a world of constant competition, dynamic changes and advancing technologies we found that the partnership with the client will be our differentiating factor.
Through the partnership with Matti and Ziv we build a unique and creative methodology to approach clients – The molecule model. We created small, self-managing multi-disciplinary teams that enables a 360-degree client service.
Matti and Ziv introduced to us practical tools that incorporate both the organization's capabilities and the client's needs, and the results were amazing. Using this proprietary molecule methodology resulted in an increase in sales and a significant increase in client satisfaction and commitment. The teams learnt how to operate independently, define shared goals, make decisions, manage conflicts and focus on the clients' needs. More deeply, they learnt to listen more deeply, be more accommodating and sensitive to the needs of the other.
Thank you for such professional, creative and valuable support.
Our company was acquired by the American conglomerate Tyco. In a reality where so many mergers and acquisitions are considered a failure,
we are happy to say that our merger was considered a great business success and even was nominated as the best re-organizational merger by the HR community. Thanks to Ziv Geffen and his rich experience in global business, who wisely coached and advised us through the transition in his sensible, professional way, the process went smoothly as all sides of the deal were engaged and accepting, allowing for a new way of working together to emerge.
Dear Elinor and the Geffen team,
I would like to thank you for a very powerful global leadership program we have just completed
with approximately 60 senior directors of the Amdocs Development Division. Despite the limitations of remote sessions, we were taken into a meaningful journey of exploring our personal and group tendencies, behaviours and ways of working together with our partners. The program was dynamic, engaging and lured us into important introspect.
am sure it will make a great impact on our leaders' day to day work and their ability to break down some silos, be more agile and mainly better partner with one another.
Join our success!
Leave your name and we'll get back to you shortly.
