The Talent Advisors focus is on capability: delivering outcomes to improve leader impact, strengthen networked leadership, increase promotion rates of pipeline talent, enhance board-ready tactics for partners and executives, assist organisations use board appointments or executive committees as leadership development, and coach executives during transitions. We work with organisations and individuals as an advisor, coach and consultant.
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 – and trust needs to be nurtured. Leaders make and take decisions based on who they are. Yet, because leadership is so personal, there can be unintended consequences.
Ambitious organisations and executives want to find new ways to be relevant and competent. We work with c-suite executives, partners and directors to leverage their strengths, support their transitions through the pipeline or to boards, facilitate networked decision making 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 or boardroom styles and strengths or greater cross-silo synergies. These workshops can be held for organisations as part of their high-potential development programs or as public programs for individual executives.
