Seeing methodology


If you aim for something you truly believe in, you can release great power. Many companies focus on what they want, but knowing and seeing are two different things; a company that wants to be successful has to really see the future.

Seeing takes courage – it cannot be undone. Once a company sees, it can achieve amazing results.

We enable companies to see. From high-level strategy to the workfloor, our method enables divisions, projects, teams and leaders to break away from their daily thinking and behavior. This helps them see what is truly needed and define the decisions or steps towards their goal.

Harvard Business School

In 1999, Bolster was part of the Global Leadership Initiative at Harvard Business School. This initiative was led by John Kotter, Warren Bennis, Ken Blanchard and Peter Senge.
In close cooperation with Harvard Business school, Bolster developed its central methodology: Seeing®. Praised as the Leadership Model of the 21st century, the methodology has since been successfully tested and applied with hundreds of companies and tens of thousands of individuals.


Seeing is an approach that enables companies to reinvent themselves continuously and become future proof by definition.

The methodology is based on simple principles, innate to humankind: the natural tension between rational elements (data, policies, ratios, KPIs) and nature (people, beliefs, drive, commitment, satisfaction, joy).

In the methodology, this tension is overcome by integrating the rational and natural elements.

Seeing does not replace existing methods in the organization, but enforces the use of what is already in place.

Seeing in support

When Bolster supports a company, the transformation itself is central. The company doesn’t need to learn or even understand the methodology to be successful. Just like the processor in your computer, it is an enabler that doesn’t need to be visible to work.

Bolster also provides an intensive program for people who want to learn more. The program develops leadership at all levels, using the Seeing approach.
