Complex environments demand high levels of individual resilience and bandwidth. Leaders face a high volume and velocity of work, for which multiple, changing variables and scenarios must be considered. It is tougher to motivate teams within uncertain, complex environments, and there is more pressure today to deliver results with lean budgets.
We link leaders' psychometric assessment results to carefully-articulated strategies that enable them to develop and leverage higher resilience and bandwidth.
How can you leverage your verbal and non-verbal communication style to impact and influence stakeholders across the organisation? We provide insight into building rapport and relationships with different personalities. We focus on how to achieve strategic leadership goals by creating buy-in and managing multiple stakeholders.
We provide leaders with the opportunity to practise tactics and strategies they might feel uncomfortable using in real-world situations. We challenge leaders to master how they use their non-verbal and verbal communication.
In a post me-too world influenced by social media, there is increasing scrutiny and openness to acknowledge and celebrate differences. In this climate, leaders have come under increasing pressure to focus on risk management and the blanket achievement of neutral and equal treatment.
We shift the dialogue towards how to leverage diversity, inclusion, and equality of opportunity in service of exemplary employee experience and business growth. We provide leaders with the language and capabilities they need to create psychological safety, and to bring valuable differences to the surface where they can act as catalysts for stronger team performance and innovation.
Employee experience makes the difference when attracting the best talent, retaining it, and inspiring it to devote its best effort to organisational goals. We provide insight about the future of work and changes to employee expectations, and consider what this means for your organisation.
We look at the impact of social media, AI and increased automation, shifts in global outsourcing, and trends in generational expectations. We provide leaders with insights, strategies, and tools to enhance employee experience and engagement at their business.
The success of business transformation depends in large part on a) engaging employees to work towards a new shared vision of the organisation's future, and b) motivating them to keep going through the peaks and troughs of the change process.
We provide leaders with the behavioural insight and communication strategies to mobilise employees in support of business transformation. Skills training includes how to craft inspiring narratives, how to leverage allies, and how to anticipate and manage resistance to change. We deepen leadership capabilities to transform mindsets across the organisation.
How can managers and leaders use culture to drive results within the organisation. We examine the relationship between strategy and culture, and outline the role of each in driving organisational performance and innovation.
We provide in-depth understanding about how to use cultural content to affect behaviour and business results. We provide leaders with a framework to guide the cultural changes, and equip them with strategies and tools to implement sustainable culture change.
Business transformation relies on clear, consistent, and impactful messaging. How do you capture and hold people's attention? How do you communicate complex information quickly and clearly? How do you build credibility and trust through your communication? How do you inspire others to accept and remember your ideas?
We provide leaders with a framework to develop, deliver, and drive impact through their ideas. Training involves simulated training and on-the-job exercises to increase leaders' impact and influence.
Effective managers and leaders are familiar with the strategy and psychology of conflict and can negotiate effectively with stakeholders at all levels within and outside of the organisation.
We provide advanced tools to analyse negotiations and potential conflicts, and provide the tools skills to effectively guide them towards the desired outcomes. We provide leaders with immersive experiences to experiment with tactics they may feel uncomfortable trying in an actual conflict. In this module, we radically expand and deepen leaders' capabilities in negotiation and conflict management.
