When performance, projects or teams lag or fail ...
Change is required. Fixing problems depends on understanding context, systems and people. We find the pressure points, hurdles and weak connections wherever they are in the organisation. Then we help leaders and managers fix the problems, and in the process they become better leaders and managers.
We answer important questions
and then assist with follow-on actions
Are there silos we don't know about?
Are our processes fit for purpose?
Have we got the right customer focus?
Have the teams the right resources and skills to do their job well?
Is there enough delegation and room for initiative
Do we have a culture of respect and consideration?
Is our rewards and recognition alignment right?
Are we change ready? What is our transformation fitness like?
And many others
Actions that deliver real benefits
How we do it
Know where you are
Free of charge
Gaining a shared and clear understanding of people, systems, processes, skills, attitudes and resources is the essential first step.
Our unique, compact, comprehensive and free assessment informs senior leaders and managers of the true situations up-down and across the organisation. It covers:
All important executive indicators, plus.
Agency and engagement
Self-realisation and growth
It is the foundation that all other steps rely on. This assessment is free.
To help with the first step towards better leaders and managers, the first assessment is free of charge. One assessment per organisation.
Executive indicators - Culture - Agency and engagement - Self-realisation and growth - Change readiness - Execution effectiveness
Know where you
need to go
A typical assessment identifies a large number of opportunities for improvement initiatives.
The challenge is to know where to start. That is, how to identify the 'best' opportunities and prioritise them. In other words, how to secure the biggest bang for the buck.
We qualify and prioritise initiatives according to their:
Importance with respect to the identified needs
Dependencies (the higher the dependencies the more complex the implementation)
Rushing towards what looks like the biggest challenge often is not the best way to improve the organisation.
Navigation and route finding are important if the objective is to be reached safely in a timely fashion.
Also included in assessment:
Action identification and prioritisation
Know how to
Execution is the step that determines whether benefits are delivered to the organisation.
It is also the most difficult step and it often ends in failure or, if not, short of the target. The cost in loss of confidence and engagement, while not immediate, is often higher than the short term dollar losses.
Our methodology for change execution has been tested over 3 years in a large organisation. It comprises:
Dynamic execution blueprints that guide and track implementation
Byte size advice that is timely and time efficient
Supports communication and knowledge capture
No need to 'reinvent the wheel'. Execution blueprints save time and facilitate success.
EBs apply to all types of initiatives, and projects, including improving KPIs.
BETTER LEADERS AND
Strengthen your most important resource
Managers determine daily outcomes and have a determining impact on productivity. Further, the success of change initiatives overwhelmingly depends on them.
According to Gallup, managers account for 70% of the variance between engaged and disengaged teams and engagement has a direct impact on performance, adaptability and overall financial success,
In times, like now, of competition for talent, helping leaders and managers become better leaders and managers is a sound strategy.
Our library of dynamic and interactive execution blueprints - that can be delivered just-in-time in byte size mode - is an important resource for improving the effectiveness of leaders and managers.
Applies to all the main issues that arise in teams
Save effort and time
Improve likelihood of successful outcomes
Coaches leaders and managers to new levels
Frees manager time for higher cognitive tasks.
SAVINGS ASSOCIATED WITH A HIGH QUALITY WORK ENVIRONMENT
AND A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT
Reduce staff turnover costs
Turnover alone costs over $10M per year for a mid-size organisation with 500 employees
Reduce low quality
work environment costs
This is the cost of low engagement alone in Australia. It does not include the big gains a high performance environment produces
Reduce failed change and transformation costs
