With the advent of the knowledge age and the myriad of disruptions already impacting leaders, we support executives and their teams to identify and build the performance factors needed to thrive in their unique future external circumstance.
Whether we serve a client as simply a mentor or coach or are involved in a far more complex transformation, we always follow a proprietary approach.
With individual leaders we focus on their purpose, values, leadership style, skills and capabilities needed to be an effective fit for the future.
We then work with leaders and their teams to do the same on their organisations.
Like with individual leaders we focus on determining the right set of performance factors to be fit for the future. These factors span: strategy, purpose, culture, values and behaviour. We call this an organisation's Essence.
Lastly, we evaluate the organisational capabilities to develop the leadership, talent, teams, structures and dynamics needed for organisational performance.
With clarity on the future context; essence and organisational capabilities, we can also work with you, to build actionable operating models which show how you can clarify the optimal split of capabilities delivered by humans and machines.
Helping you survive, thrive and dominate.
Questions we address
To prepare leaders and organisations to deliver exceptional performance in the future, we look across 6 lenses all required and interrelated to map out the factors and capabilities required for the unique performance environment a business faces.
FUTURE BACK THINKING
How do we define a clear Vision and understanding of future disruption in our industry?
What risks and regulations will impact our future performance?
DEFINING PURPOSE AND CULTURE
How does our culture need to align with our strategy, differentiation and values?
How do we build future fit high performing teams and partner in our ecosystem?
What structure, roles and responsibilities do we need to enable effective performance?
How do I know our people have the right capabilities and skills to deliver future growth generally or in an emerging area eg data analytics, new customer focus?
"Many organisations jump to solving the tactical problems around people, process and technology without recognising the importance of mapping out their "unique" environmental systemic layers, critical to determining the critical levers for unlocking future performance success. We call this: Outside in Thinking"
Future back and "Outside in", in Action
Leveraging this "Outside in" thinking, whether we serve a client as simply a mentor/coach or are involved in a far more complex transformation, we always follow a robust, proprietary approach.
Once again the systemic layering underpins our systemic approach to ensure that a performance model is achieved that maximises the fit between the organisational capabilities and environmental context - both future and current.
