Experienced business psychologists, we work with senior leaders in large and complex organisations.
We define what leadership capabilities organisations need, assess leaders against these capabilities, and deliver ambitious acceleration programmes to fast-track leaders’ development.
Find out how we assess and accelerate the right leaders for your tomorrow:
Talent pipelines aren’t delivering
Heads of Talent & Learning tell us why….
Senior managers will not take the risk on appointing internal talent
Development plans are left in a drawer or forgotten and are not actioned
‘Ready later’ succession candidates never move to ‘ready now’
Development programmes fail to demand or measure improvement
Talent is assessed infrequently, usually when one-off decisions are needed
They struggle to demonstrate return on investment to their stakeholders
Do you want your business to thrive and not just survive?
It all comes down to how you assess, accelerate and appoint the right leaders needed for your tomorrow.
But if we strip it all back, what’s wrong?
How we Assess and Accelerate the right leaders for your tomorrow
Phase 1 Activate
Through innovative techniques we build and sustain your talent’s commitment to their personal journey
Phase 2 Assess
We identify objectively who will develop furthest and fastest and how this can be accelerated
Phase 3 Assign
We work with you to identify the right stretch experiences that will move individuals rapidly along the talent pipeline and become ‘ready now’ successors
Phase 4 Accelerate
We provide the tools and support to enable people to extract the maximum learning from both their day jobs and stretch experiences
Phase 5 Appoint
We enable your talent to onboard new stretching roles confidently, supporting their successful transition
The organisations we’ve helped
We’ve helped unblock the talent pipelines of these leading organisations. For each we’ve tailored our approach to their context and priorities, delivering highly successful programmes both in person and virtually.
Did they have the bench strength needed to win business in an increasingly competitive marketplace?
We developed and ran development centres simulating the future business and personal capabilities required. Our assessments gave individuals insight into their strengths and development priorities, as well as providing actionable insight for the functional leadership team.
How would they develop their emerging talent as leaders of change rather than pure technical specialists?
We designed a global programme to equip their emerging leaders with the leadership and management skills required to accelerate their contribution to business growth.
Which of their senior leaders really had the potential to succeed as a senior international manager?
We carried out comprehensive assessments of leadership capability and potential, using behavioural observation, a deep dive interview and psychometric assessment.
Needing to bring new senior talent in, who could they safely appoint with the capability to transform the organisation while fitting Britvic’s culture?
Our experienced psychologists carried out deep dive interviews to assess whether the individuals had the critical leadership capabilities and personal qualities to be successful in Britvic.
MID -LEVEL LEADERS
Philip Morris International
Faced with the transformation of their entire business, which of their leaders were willing and able to lead that change?
We aligned our approach to Philip Morris’s transformational attributes, and ran half-day developmental leadership assessments to activate and accelerate their leader’s development.
How would they enable their Country MDs to embrace the shifts in mindset and behaviour required for their new operating model to succeed?
Using one of our benchmarked business simulations we enabled their MDs to experience and get feedback on how they would need to operate in an organisation requiring more collaborative, consumer centric behaviours.
