The Talent Advisors focus is on executive capability, delivering outcomes to improve leader impact, increase promotion rates of pipeline talent, enhance board ready tactics, develop client-centric LinkedIn profiles for CEOs, directors and executive teams and design commercial talent management solutions. We work with organisations and individuals as an advisor, coach and consultant.
Distinguishing characteristics of successful organisations are exceptional leadership and the capacity to generate ongoing ‘banks’ of intellectual capital. High-potential diverse talent represents one of the greatest sources of current and potential value for a business. Ambitious people also want to find new ways to be relevant and competent. Leaders who recognise this, and work hard to take their best and brightest – their A-listers – to higher levels of achievement deliver strategic value to their organisation.
With experience at C-suite and Partner levels, The Talent Advisors approach draws on a real understanding of achievement, how talented executives learn and think and what is needed by their companies to identify, nurture, engage and retain high-potentials on the A-List.
We believe leadership is not clouded in mystique. In a ‘market-driven, culture-led’ business, it is the market or customer that determines what to do; and it is the company’s culture that determines the ‘how.’ The issue is that leadership may be intellectually simple, but it is behaviourally complex. It is not only intellect and talent that determines leadership – after all IQ is not EQ. Leaders make and take decisions based on who they are. Yet, because leadership is so personal, there can be unintended consequences. We work with executives to leverage their strengths and shape their managerial leadership.
Our client relationships are collaborative. Based on trust, this mutual connection fosters a joint commitment to both agreed outcomes and the value of the ongoing alliance.
The latest thinking is what we bring to our client’s key issues, including our range of Mentoring Circles on managerial leadership or next-level promotions or board readiness that can be held for organisations as part of their high-potential development programs or as public programs for individual executives.
