HOW DO YOU UNLOCK PERFORMANCE FOR YOUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES FIRM TODAY AND TOMORROW?
Organisational Development (OD) is about facilitating your organisational success. We help you align the structural, cultural and strategic realities of your Professional Services Firm to the needs of your evolving business climate. By applying behavioural science practice, we take a people-first approach. Your needs direct the customisation of our programmes. These are never didactic and always participatory to drive the leadership, collaboration and change you need.
Organisational development often involves: changes to structure & culture; change management; roles and team redesign; wider organisation redesign; engagement and strategy processes; leadership development. Organisational development is often delivered via: in-house research & focus groups; group experiential interventions; dialogue processes; tailored leadership development; team coaching, and masterclasses & workshops
SENIOR TEAM FACILITATION
DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT LEADERS – AND DYNAMICS – AT THE TOP OF YOUR FIRM?
Having the right leaders in the right roles is only the first step towards high performance. Successful leadership isn’t just about amassing a collection of strong talented individuals; it’s about maximising their combined impact.
Leadership teams in Professional Services Firms and Partnerships have specific challenges. They inhabit a working environment that is complex, highly people-orientated and often, personality-driven with ambiguous authority structures. We help you identify the unique positions of strength that team members inhabit to free them up so they can drive forward business strategy together.
We help executive teams to perform successfully, integrate new members, and become high-functioning drivers of firm-wide influence.
IS YOUR FIRM PLACING TALENT MANAGEMENT AT THE CORE OF ITS LEADERSHIP AND BUSINESS STRATEGY?
The difference between the expectations, approaches and challenges of today’s senior leaders and those of tomorrow is changing fast. Your rising talent base needs to develop the adaptability, flexibility and resilience to skill-up on demand and lead your firm in a future of uncertainty.
Today's Millennial talent base needs to connect with the firm on an emotional level and values a meaningful work culture. Reimagining the employee experience to offer the right value proposition is now important for both attracting and retaining your talent.
Research-based approaches are built into our talent development programmes. These involve technology-enabled diagnostics for capability mapping; social learning e-tools, and effective training resources. We integrate with your internal leadership frameworks and culture to prioritise talent management as a core process of your Professional Services Firm or Partnership.
DO YOU, OR YOUR LEADERS, HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO CARRY OFF YOUR FIRM'S BUSINESS STRATEGY?
Our starting point is never a single leadership model. We focus on your firm’s purpose, context and strategy – paired with our experience developing leadership strategies that achieve measurable results.
Are your current leaders capable right now of enabling sustained, successful performance? What do they need to change to make this happen?
We work with you to build a leadership strategy that sets out exactly what it will take for the right leaders to achieve your Professional Services Firm's go-forward strategy.
We partner with you to figure out and then develop the leadership approach that will take your firm forward to where you want it to go. We partner with you to figure out and then develop the leadership approach that will take your firm forward to where you want it to go.
DO YOUR PIVOTAL PEOPLE HAVE THE QUALITIES REQUIRED TO TAKE YOUR FIRM FORWARD?
Executive coaching (teams or individuals) is most effective when it is: 1) Aligned with the strategy of the firm; 2) Focused on creating context-specific behavioural change; 3) Formed on strong partnership between sponsor, coachee and coach.
We employ our behavioural science knowledge, assessment skills, and experience of the commercial and strategic realities of organisational leadership to dig into what lies beneath behaviour to drive tangible improvements.
We partner closely with the individuals and their senior team members to ensure measurable impact that is deeply embedded and sustained within your firm.
IS YOUR FIRM STRUGGLING WITH CHANGE THROUGH RESTRUCTURING, DIGITISATION OR INNOVATION?
Managing the many moving parts of change to leverage talent and technology within a Professional Services Firm isn't easy. Not least when you're managing a diverse team with diverse appetites for change and technology. Even less so when you're faced with or feeling that “we'd rather go back to the way we've always worked”.
We help you address these issues via: 1) Re-framing of perspectives and challenging of assumptions; 2) Establishment of a performance management system that rewards innovation and promotes sharing of successful approaches; 3) Development of a high level of consensus and commitment
Change management is part of the scope of Organisational Development which focuses on the bigger picture and goals of your Professional Services Firm. It supports the individual transitions that cumulatively result in your organisational change to reduce friction and painpoints.
