Leading Teams & Organisations

Conversations for a cohesive, high-performing organisational culture 

  • Lost some good people lately?
  • Unable to get women into senior roles?
  • Dealing with bullying and harassment claims?
  • Frustrated that change programs are stalling?
  • Unable to identify a capable successor?
  • Do internal politics suffocate your productivity?
  • Team consistently missing their KPI’s?

If these types of problems are keeping you awake at night, let’s start a conversation about how I can help you.

What we help you achieve

Clarity of Vision

In its highest expression, when the system is working well and producing amazing outcomes, what does it look like?

Shared Purpose, Well-Articulated

Why was this system created in the first place? What and who is it for, really? Who knows and understands this and who realises and owns the part they are playing?

Power to Contribute

Who is empowered, who gets a voice and how does this enhance or diminish the energy running through the system? Empowerment means overcoming our default patterns of avoidance, compliance or the use of fear as a means of controlling or escaping from challenges.

Authentic Presence

having integrity, showing up and being real, paying attention. People are more educated than ever before and are no longer willing to tolerate fake leadership or purely positional authority.

Balanced Perspective

from personal stress reduction to paid parental leave and on to diversity and gender economics – all business issues of the 21st century are becoming intertwined with public health, social sustainability and macroeconomics.

How we do it . . .

How we do it

OUR 7-STEP APPROACH TO ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Rather than taking a ‘one-size-fits all’ approach, we see each organisation as unique and we pay great attention to the human element as well as the business metrics.

We combine your own insights and gut-feel, with our evidence based tools, experience and skill, to develop a deeper inquiry into the underlying issues that are currently driving your results.

We then recommend and develop programs that are specific, relevant, timely, applicable and transformational – for those areas within the organisation where our support can make the most difference, so you don’t waste time or money on the wrong things.

WE GET RESULTS FOR OUR CLIENTS THROUGH THE FOLLOWING METHODOLOGY . . .

1.     Confirming the Hunch you have that something is a problem in your business

"

We meet with the Program Sponsor and any other key Stakeholders, to hear their viewpoints and their intuition or ‘gut-feel’ about what is currently going on in the system, where the potential as well as the pain points are, and why they believe this.

2.     Measuring – Evidence-Gathering

"

We apply robust tools and processes to collect information about what’s really going on inside the organisation, while respecting the confidentiality of the participants. Data gathered is benchmarked against agreed standards such as Employer of Choice criteria. We may also review existing systems and processes; understanding and integrating what may have already been done but not fully utilized.

3.     Making Sense of the information (Meaning-Making)

"

Analysing and sharing collected information with you, your key leaders, and the whole organisation; reflecting concrete evidence back to you about what needs to change. This prepares the way for working with the organisational culture at a deeper level; bringing values to life; generating a shared intention for change; and helping you get increased alignment, engagement, and productivity.

4.     Prioritise Interventions

"

Taking into account the strongest areas of need, as well as contextual factors such as business and planning cycles, budgets and stakeholder expectations; we prioritise and plan a program delivery strategy with you, to optimise the degree of positive impact, so that you are able to generate important early ‘wins’ as well as align collective efforts towards a sustainable positive change longer term.

5.     Project Manage & Feedback

Implement Supporting Program(s)

"

Designing and delivering an agreed range of targeted, customized, and cost-effective programs such as leadership team development; performance management; innovation and creative thinking; productivity enhancement; strategic thinking; 360-feedback processes; decision-making; and individual capability coaching that will create sustainable change for your organisation.

6.     Connecting to the Business Plan (Embedding Outcomes)

"

Assessing and evaluating goal-directed progress; promoting virtuous feedback loops within the organisation, aligning program outcomes with strategic talent development, competency frameworks, and performance management systems in a business context, so that your HR and business agendas are brought together.

7.     Measure ROI, Re-Test & Next Steps (Quantify outcomes)

Follow up surveys and assessments used in Step 5, approximately 12 months after the completion of a program; to measure the longer term impact of these interventions and further inform the HR and Business Planning agendas.
