Our take to market solutions
We are experts in the process of unlocking potential and focusing this in the right ways on the right outcomes and we excel at emotionally engaging leaders and teams to own change.
In short… ‘We do the really hard part of the soft stuff’
In reality this means working on 3 broad areas of client need, which include the following:
- Developing a Compelling Strategy with High Performing Senior Leadership Teams
- Developing Leadership Talent
- Liberating Passion
Developing a Compelling Strategy with High Performing Senior Leadership Teams
In this area of client need we help leaders and their leadership teams align behind a compelling vision and strategy for the organisation and take them on a journey to High Performing status. We often find many senior leadership teams are faced with a familiar set of recurring issues and when we speak to the team members we hear the same recurring comments.
“Our vision and strategy are constantly subsumed by the pressure of Operational work, we seem unable to find the time to think and work strategically when we are together”
“The relationships across the team are not as harmonious or strong and productive as they could be”
“As a team we fail to complete on our priorities and these priorities tend to shift too frequently”
“We have a real diversity of behaviours and styles across the team which hinders rather than helps us deliver”
“We take longer to take decisions than we should and often revisit key decisions several times”
Our support in this area is tailored to help overcome these frustrations.
Developing Leadership Talent
In this area of client need we help our clients develop the leadership talent required to successfully deliver strategically significant and sustainable change. Again this is an area where we see a recurring set of issues and opportunities aired in discussion with our clients.
“Performance is inconsistent across the various leadership teams, departments, functions or business units when it comes to the delivery of strategic change”
“We do not have the capability where we want it or need it”
“Many times our change teams lack the capable resources and depth of experience needed to deliver”
“We do not have enough talent on our leadership bench to ensure that we have the right capability coming through, if we were to lose our star performers I think we would be in trouble”
Our support in this area is tailored to help increase the leadership talent in our client organisations.
The third area in which we find ourselves called in to support our clients is where the levels of passion, motivation, commitment and latent energy in the organisation is insufficient to deliver the significant business results required. In this situation we hear leader’s make comments such as…
“The business is not performing relative to stakeholder / shareholder expectations and I know it is not a technology or process issue”
“Our people are under stress and they are being ground down by the brutal reality of day to day activity”
“We are failing to deliver our strategic aspirations but there are pockets of real excellence amongst our teams”
“Our capability and potential exceeds our delivered performance, the organisation seems to be dissipating rather than harnessing energy”
Our support in this area is focussed on engaging and empowering staff to create real energy and enthusiasm.
