The Talent Advisors guides aspiring directors … coaches executives for the next level … improves director applications … develops managerial leadership … evaluates board or CEO impact.
Our focus is on capability: delivering outcomes to improve leader impact and board evaluations, strengthen networked leadership, increase promotion rates of pipeline talent, enhance board-ready tactics for partners and executives, assist organisations who use board appointments or executive committees as leadership development, and coach executives and change agents during transitions. We work with organisations and individuals as an advisor, coach and consultant.

Welcome to our site. As you browse through the pages and client comments you will notice that our work is based on the view that capability drives results. 

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.
