Get Knowledge
Our Mission

and how we work

At “Get Knowledge” we have one clear mission ‘to help Leaders learn to change in ways that support more Fun and Caring environments, where people can be themselves, be happier at work, where Trust is part of the fabric’

We champion PEOPLE in the improvement equation.

Over the years we’ve been involved with a number of businesses and individuals in the change and improvement space. We’ve been part of Lean implementations, Six Sigma programmes, IT change programmes across a number of different sectors. Often, PEOPLE are forgotten due to a focus on technical methods and skills.

We’re not saying these technical elements aren’t important but we believe that PEOPLE are your greatest asset and that’s why our HOW is focussed around PEOPLE, leadership, environments and learning to “Get Knowledge”.

Our values • FACT

We are all at work for a lot of time, but nobody says you cant enjoy every minute of what you do!

We have to be ourselves in all that we do, in order to build trust with others to enable improvements!

It is all about PEOPLE. Customers, Employees, Friends and Family are all people and thats whats important!

We need to be Reliable, Credible and build relationships with others to create a trusting environment!

Lee Houghton

Lee Houghton

Lee is the father of two amazing children. He is a business improvement coach who prides himself on helping people and teams make today better than yesterday, a lot of people can say these things about themselves though. So what makes Lee different is his random journey to get to where he has with, one pivotal moment in losing his best mate ‘Chris’ after his brave cancer battle that changed Lee’s life forever.

Lee’s random journey has included writing 5 children books, owning a bouncy castle business AND DJ, including 18 months Dj’ing dressed as a monkey.... all these things have shaped his career from data input administrator to co-founding Get Knowledge in 2018.

BUT, as a shiny object syndrome sufferer, it was losing Chris that has sharpened his focus and desire to help people confidently deliver change.

Jason is a father, mountaineer, girls football coach and co-founder of Get Knowledge. Jason helps business leaders and managers with all things improvement, with a slant towards organisations with a key role to play in our future world.

After 18 years working using a variety of improvement methods and leading a bunch of improvement and operational teams, Jason decided to stop ‘consulting’ and now looks to focus on helping people to think differently about solving their own challenges by taking a more coaching led approach.

This led to the emergence of our Sustainable Performance Excellence practice which Jason heads up.
