To have the edge when hiring and succession planning, we believe that it pays to know all you can about a candidate. How do they benchmark against the market? How are they likely to perform today and in the future? What culture they will prosper in? And what culture they will bring with them? Using the latest psychometric technologies and in-depth behavioral interviews, our experienced business psychologists help get behind the CV when hiring externally or assessing the potential of your internal talent. Our goal is to help clients make an informed choice by providing deeper, objective information on shortlisted candidates: how they think, what motivates them and how they influence and lead. This significantly mitigates the risk of a placed candidate jumping ship, micro-managing, being territorial or not bringing people with them.
ONE-TO-ONE EXECUTIVE COACHING
We offer the same
approach whether you are dealing with a new hire or a current incumbent. We explore not only individual traits, but also how they are supported or suppressed by particular organisational norms and cultures. By approaching coaching systemically, we can understand not only on how an individual is behaving, but more importantly why they are behaving that way. The coaching which follows carries a much greater impact in terms of the accuracy and effectiveness of our insights. All of our work begins with a developmental assessment, followed by a tailored plan of coaching, line manager review and stakeholder feedback.
When the going is good, teams usually operate in relative harmony. New teams, or teams with several new members, may take some time to find their feet. Under pressure, relations can be strained or even fractious. This is seldom to do with any individual. Rather, it usually occurs because teams confuse difference for weakness. Quieter, newer or more challenging viewpoints may be ignored or inadequately listened to rather than integrated as something to celebrate. Teams need to critically evaluate their dynamics, not in terms of competence, but in terms of behaviour. We can support your Executive Team or your Board to take full advantage of the range of personalities within it.
