Our Tagline: Systems. Deliberation. Sustainability. 

When situations are complex and messy, systems thinking clarifies the situation systemically. In practice it encourages the exploration of inter-relationships, perspectives and boundaries. Systems thinking is particularly useful in addressing complex or wicked problems.

Deliberation is any formal or informal process for communication and for raising and collectively considering issues. It emphasizes the use of logic and reason. In deliberation people confer, exchange views, ponder, consider evidence, negotiate, reflect on matters of mutual interest and attempt to persuade each other. A good deliberative process deepens people’s understanding as the process evolves.

Sustainability is futures-oriented, focusing on creating a more ecologically and socially just world and protecting eco-systems through informed action. Actions that support more sustainable patterns of living require consideration of environmental, social, cultural and economic systems and their interdependence.

Our name
People often comment on our name, Working Visions,  and ask how it came to be.  Way back in 2001 when Tracey was pulled out of the bliss of early motherhood by persistent potential clients in Gladstone, she had to think of a name for the burgeoning consultancy.  It was a truly deliberative process with much consideration given to the impression that name would portray then, and into the future.

Working conjures the adjectives of engaged, active, dynamic, functional, living, operational, alive, successful, a good relationship, viable, in full swing.

Visions represents the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. Using imagination, creativity, inventiveness, innovation, inspiration, intuition, perception.

Since inception, and wherever possible, we recycle, reuse and reduce emissions.

Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
Working Visions acknowledges Australia’s Traditional Owners and pays respect to the past, present and emerging Elders of our nation’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.  We honour and celebrate the spiritual, cultural and customary connections of Traditional Owners to the land and the biodiversity that forms part of that country.
