CEO & C - SUITE.
The challenge for the new decade
Organisations are only as robust as the individuals who serve in them.
The strength of our engagement with others will ultimately determine the success of our organisations.
In order to engage others, it is vital that we understand ourselves, and do not leave this to chance. Ultimately, understanding ourselves is key for successful relationships - dispersed, digital, organisational, personal. This need has never been more relevant.
At Board level, understanding how we make decisions, and how we engage others is more crucial than ever as we begin to navigate a new decade.
Successful CEO and C-suite appointments - and the relationships these involve - are critical in seeing into our future, identifying opportunities as well as managing risk.
Leadership, now an early-in-career requirement, must be harnessed and developed, to address the unique challenges of the 2020s and beyond. We start by asking 'Who are you? What is unique about you as a leader?'
Coaching, when delivered by accredited experts, is shown to be a vital leadership development tool.
We have the depth to provide insight into the most complex leader issues of our time.
CEO AND C - SUITE SELECTION & DEVELOPMENT
Identifying and developing Executive leaders for the challenges of a new decade
Today's CEO or C-Suite executive must inspire, as well as show a strategic focus. Empathy and engagement play a big part in the success - or otherwise - of a CEO or senior leader, along with humility, curiosity, innovation and a learning orientation. The ability to provide - and receive - challenging feedback, while continuing to motivate others remains a core competency.
As psychologists, we are pleased to offer something that differs us from the others. Using best-in-class psychometric assessment, our independent, evidence-based process can describe, explain and predict how any leader will relate to and engage with others to create value in challenging circumstances. We work effectively with executive leaders to shift the dial in key areas to create success.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT & COACHING
Developing crucial & relevant leadership skills at all levels
Leadership development has changed from ‘cherry picking’ those who may look like they will succeed in the future, to a much more evidence-based approach. Leadership development can encompass early, middle and senior stages of leadership, using both 1:1 development as well as program - based approaches. Developing leaders early in career has been shown to add significant value especially during turbulent times. As psychologists, we use key behavioural insights and evidence to ensure development is both effective and accessible.
1:1 Coaching for development
Coaching is essential for the success of any leader today. Leaders must understand and leverage key strengths, while embracing challenges, in order to lead effectively. From a single session to a more lengthy engagement, we use current methods, combined with behavioural insights to ensure our leaders are able to move ahead with insight and clarity.
