Developing leaders who inspire others and drive change

For companies to gain a competitive advantage and grow in today’s fast changing business world the imperative to develop, engage, and retain exceptional leaders has never been more pressing. Organisations need innovative, inspiring, impactful and adaptable leaders to shape culture and drive change.

Effective leaders have a direct impact on the performance of an organisation. That is why there is such stiff competition between progressive businesses to attract, develop and retain the very best. However, when it comes to leadership development, HR professionals recognise that there is a mismatch between the high aspirations of many organisations and their ability to deliver. It is an area ‘where the need for action is most pressing.’ We help organisations meet their leadership development aspirations, working with you to deliver integrated, organisation wide leadership development strategies that drive measurable and sustainable performance improvements.

The interdependent, connected nature of today’s global business environments means the need for leaders to work well collaboratively, across a range of disciplines, is more important now than ever. Leadership-team development, therefore, is essential, too. We will help you shape your leaders to meet the challenges of today whilst putting in place succession strategies to meet the challenges of the future, ensuring the kind of evolutionary leadership culture that is a foundation for long-term growth.

Working with you

From executive level leaders to those with managerial or supervisory responsibilities, we support clients through continuous evaluation of their leadership development and talent programmes to ensure the right people, with the right capabilities are in the right positions to drive strategy, develop culture and enhance overall business performance. Some organisations only focus development at the very top. Where we can help you gain a genuine competitive advantage, however, is by leveraging your middle management too. They are, after all, the conduit through which top-level strategy is mediated. When this group of people is empowered, enabled and motivated, and aligned with your business agenda, the rest of your organisation will follow, establishing tangible, sustainable, culture-shifting change.

In Practice

In brief, our holistic, integrated approach to leadership development is effective across three levels:

  • Organisational: tailored programmes built around leadership benchmarking, strategy and succession planning.
  • Team: setting clear goals and direction; creating the right structures, processes and behaviours; establishing role capabilities and clear accountability within the team.
  • Individual: tailored development programmes for management and leadership at all levels; providing individual coaching and assessment to executive leaders.

For good or bad, success or failure, your leaders have a direct impact on the performance of your organisation. Having the right leaders, in the right positions at the right time is as critical to organisational success as your financial strategy.

We work with clients to change behaviours for more efficient and effective organisational performance, developing leaders that inspire others and drive that change. We utilise a comprehensive range of learning methodologies and sophisticated profiling and testing tools to give you the in depth and accurate insight you need to make informed decisions across the leadership lifecycle – from candidate selection and on-boarding to ongoing assessment and leadership succession. By understanding the way people perform as individuals and in teams we help you invest development resources where they are needed most.

We work with executive leaders to identify and address current business challenges and put in place development plans to meet the projected challenges of the future. We give them the tools to inspire change and transformation, helping re-shape organisational culture and establish effective, collaborative working relationships. We provide in depth analysis of different leadership models and their potential impact on performance, at an individual, team and organisational level. In short, we identify and put in place the performance-enhancing learning tools and resources your leaders need to drive the future success of your organisation.
