Our highly experienced team works in partnership with clients to clarify their vision, and to develop, communicate and implement the strategy to make that vision reality.
We work with Boards of organisations to raise the focus, motivation and performance of the Leadership. We support the building of the vision, strategy and delivery of the implementation plan. This often includes the succession plan.
We also support the development of the leaders of today and tomorrow. Our bespoke leadership VISTA programmes are tailored to the unique cultures, requirements and aspirations of each of our clients. Both innovative and practical, our programmes are always inspirational and championed from the top. They enable our clients to plan for their own personal legacy, proud and prepared for their next challenge.
Effective Team Dynamics
Using our proprietary P2 psychometric profile as the start point, we work with leaders to enable groups of individuals with varying aspirations, personalities and motivations, to become high performing teams. It’s not about being ‘teamy’. It's about working in partnership with you to improve team effectiveness, enhance strategic decision making, build team capability and strengthen team relationships; in essence, helping you to harness the collective power of the individual parts behind a common purpose.
Employer Brand & EVP
Every organisation has an Employer Brand whether they like it or not. We help our clients take control of their brand, and actively manage it, rather than leaving its evolution to chance.
We help them to develop their Employee Value Proposition, and get key business stakeholders behind it. We also help to develop and implement the plans that will activate the EVP through employee and candidate touch points. Our experience and track record of doing this work with many organisations means that we bring best practice to navigating successfully the challenges they face.
Whether in Growth, Consolidation, Acquisition, Integration, Due Diligence, IPO or in ‘Being Acquired’ mode, our clients know that people and culture are the key to optimising commercial performance and sustained success.
We help our clients to define the kind of culture that will support the achievement of the business vision and develop bespoke programmes to support that culture change. This involves both the critical OD piece and the essential attitude and behavioural shift.
Informed buying decisions are crucial, as is the successful integration of the new business. We work with clients who recognise the benefit of planning for the integration of a new culture into the organisational family.
We identify the drivers, working styles and concerns of both the client and target company’s business leaders. This helps our clients understand early any issues that may need to be addressed. It also provides the insight that enables the merging of the businesses to maximise ‘fit’ and mutual benefit, through focused communication and relevance to the different business propositions.
Selection & Succession Planning
Choosing between candidates when recruiting for senior positions can be difficult as at that level most look good on paper and are polished at interview. Drawing on our psychometric assessment process and commercial experience and our knowledge of client culture, we provide deep insight into the personalities and likely behaviours of the people being considered for the role. We highlight the strengths, development needs and potential problem areas. We then advise on how best to motivate the selected individual to maximise their and your success.
We also help clients gain clarity as to the future business requirements, identify talent and develop the strategies to ensure the right people are in the right places at the right time.
