Executive Coaching & Mentoring
The world’s leading companies routinely invest in providing coaching and in training their managers to use coaching to develop and manage their people, increasing both innovation and business agility. Coaching encourages ownership and problem solving, rather than blindly following routines.
Leadership & Management Development
Traditionally Leadership and Management skills were learned on-the-job, through observation and experience of what worked well and didn’t. This was a slow process, resulting in many casualties – disengaged employees and managers, and sub-optimal performance.
Whilst on-the-job learning is essential, the best performing organisations fast-track and optimise Leadership and Management development, often using external experts.
Innovation & Continuous Improvement
The challenges for today’s leaders and managers are very different. These challenges include:
- more informed and demanding employees, e.g. Millennials’ expectations of work
- global competition and opportunities
- fast-paced technology changes and automation
- more informed and demanding customers
- uncertain market conditions, including Brexit
