brain effective success tool.
SIGN UP TO OUR MAILING LIST
One Small Nudge creates group experiences to get you to reﬂect, strategise, plan and measure the progress of your micro to small business.
We craft group gatherings which draw on our collective intelligence and the human capacity to think better together.
Our aim is to get people in business to talk to each other so that you can think better – and plan, commit and be accountable for your goals.
THE ‘TOOLS’ WE USE
We develop short, sharp and smart workshops and run Accountability Labs to get you to THINK about your micro to small business.
We are acutely aware that the environment out there is tough – as individuals and entrepreneurs we know that you are short on time and that each cent counts. Our workshops are offer meaningful results for your time and for your ‘bucks’: low-resource, high-impact.
At the workshops and Labs, OSN shows you how to create verbal and visual MAPS of your plans, so you build strong brain connections…
to get to your goals
These are for small groups of like-minded professionals who want to move forward steadily in their businesses, measure progress and stay in a growth-mindset. An Accountability Lab is a visioning, action and achievement tool for getting to your goals. The group context provides support and encouragement month-to-month. These are 60-75 minutes per month, similar to having a board of directors to report to, be accountable for the goals you set for yourself and keep momentum going on tactical goals.
Strategy and Personal Development Workshops
Aimed at small business, entrepreneurs, start-ups, consultants, freelancers and professionals, we have developed a spectrum of two hour workshops which we run at co-working spaces and on request. Workshops range from strategy workshops to Achievement Mapping to developing your strengths for confidence building.
Customised workshops and facilitation
We have the expertise to build workshops and interventions tailor-made to your needs. We work with small businesses and organisations who require internal interventions to align the personal values and vision of your workforce with that of your company. These are designed to motivate your people, retain talent, tap into potential, get better performance and also keep reminding them of the strategic imperatives of the business.
Clarity, ease & simplicity is what makes Labs work
Do you know that people who write down their goals are 39,5 % more likely to achieve them? Telling a friend increases this rate to 76,7 %
Human beings are wired to work as a collective, in companies, communities of practice, families or sports teams. We all know that two brains working together can innovate, create and build more and better than just one brain on its own. This is common-knowledge, but check out the books and research papers, and the fact that we are social beings is rooted in science.
All our work at One Small Nudge is built on brain science, systems theory, adult learning theory, behavioural science, behavioural economics and business science.
With 4IR and the future of work, we need to boost our ability to create and innovate. We believe great ideas come from better thinking and learning, both as individuals and socially, as a group.

What People Say
The Accountability Lab with Laura has become an integral part of my business success and growth. It allows me to step outside of my daily dealings and look at my space from a different prospective. Something very person should do.
Thank you so much for these sessions, the increased productivity, deep focus, and sense of achievement are unbelievable. I really thought I was a productive person but after doing these work sprints, my productivity levels have just been elevated. Thank you so much for this!
Your workshop really did help and I have used the tools you have given me to start implementing various goals in the business. Thank you for your help and for helping me with prioritising and setting up bite size ways to reach big daunting goals!
Laura-Ann’s Accountability Labs have really helped me keep both business and personal goals top of mind. Our regular group meetings make sure that I keep working at getting where I want to go and have proven a valuable tool in helping me decide what I should say “Yes” to and what I should turn down to reach my goals.”
One Small Nudge facilitated a business strategy session for our team, with the objective of reflecting on our current position and re-aligning our vision and strategy (executable actions) going forward. The workshop exceeded my expectation, it was well handled with a clear focus and enough room to allow for all the insights to be gathered in a short space of time. We had a clear plan of how to move forward as a business and team. I would highly recommend the services of One Small Nudge, and the approach for any team requiring meaningful insight and a way forward.
“The Accountability Labs have helped me move forward in both my personal and professional life. This experience has highlighted how instrumental incremental progress is in reaching your bigger, scarier goals. This experience has taught me the importance of breaking down those hefty goals into palatable action points that move me forward, as opposed to being paralysed by procrastination at the mere thought of how I would possibly achieve the goal. The support of the group has been invaluable. I have thrived in this setting – learning how to better listen and the privilege of sharing in the ups and downs of everyone else’s journey has helped inform how I navigate my own.”
“Thank you Laura for an amazing session. You have inspired me, and taught me how to organize the way I approach my tasks . The session has motivated me , and I recently started a training company, I know that using your techniques explained in your teachings, that I will not be overwhelmed, and will be on top of requirements. “
One Small Nudge is about input and outcome: enhance support, focussed collaboration and conversation into your business strategy, and the result is increased creativity and productivity.
