Our Work

We are passionate about helping leaders develop to be the best they can be. We challenge people to take themselves seriously as leaders, to be clear what they stand for, where they are trying to take their team, division or organisation, and why people should follow them.

We help leaders prepare for the challenges of work today – where the pace is never fast enough, the answers rarely simple, and the best ideas too often get drowned out by loud voices or a felt pressure to act quickly.

We help leaders create transformation for their business and themselves – by ensuring they focus on what really matters, dig deep to identify the real issues, and work collaboratively to address those things that fall between the gaps.

Leadership Coaching

– For transitions: on-boarding; from leading a team to leading a function; CEO transitions; Board membership; out-placement

– For development: managing the relationships and not just the task; influence with integrity; self and other awareness; team leadership

Assessment

– For selection: executive candidate shortlist; leadership potential and character fit

– For development: helping experienced leaders find their developmental edge

Teams

– Leadership team forming and reforming; accelerating to high performance

– Building robust relationships and powerful conversations; in the team, with other teams and across the organisation

Organisational Transformation

– Culture change: addressing what really matters; when transformational leadership is more important than executional leadership

– Leadership edge: building leadership across and up and down organisations;
