We are often struck by the gap between the “talk” about leadership reflected in the wave of publications, papers, conferences and seminars, and the “realities” of leadership as experienced by those on the receiving end. Maybe (or because of) the talk on leadership isn’t helping us identify the kind of leaders with the mix of wisdom, integrity and character we need to sustain long-term organisational success.
Our Four C leadership framework provides an overarching model to make sense of the variety of different perspectives, addressing:
We coordinate leadership audits, incorporating a choice of methodologies depending on timescales and resources, when organisations are embarking on major strategic change and want an objective perspective to inform redeployment decision making. Our approach combines in-depth and robust assessment, high impact reports with trend analysis to highlight resourcing strengths and potential hazards.
We conduct individual assessments of high priority individuals, those professionals and executives whose talent or roles make them critical to organisational success, the individuals who are pivotal to the future of your organisation. Here we draw on a range of assessment methods to construct detailed and practical development plans.
We design and help implement high impact development centres for group-based assessment and development. The days of the “silent, clip-board wielding assessor” are over. We put in place interactive and facilitative activities and exercises to engage participants in the challenges relevant to your business.
