Our professionally qualified and highly experienced team offer a discreet service that identifies strengths, weaknesses and professional-development requirements for key individuals in management and succession positions. Our assessment can help you to identify options for retention, executive development and succession planning. It also helps benchmark your executive team against industry best practice.
The assessment is based on a competency-based interview (on-line or face to face); 360-degree references, which may include customers; psychometrics; and AI facial expression detection analysis for personal development.
We produce individual or team-based reports for senior management including benchmarking; identification of individual and team-based development priorities; and individual leadership development reports with an 18 month priority action plan.

Whether you want to review your priorities in life, or develop your leadership skills and management relationships, or prepare for specific events, or assess and develop a key team or group, our coaching and mentoring team is here to help.
Many businesses use Advisory Boards to very good effect to support the achievement of specific goals. This may be a light touch to simply add substance and gravitas through relationships with people who are known and respected in their fields; or it could be a Board created to help achieve very specific and time limited objectives, perhaps to achieve an acquisition or merger. Or to support a cultural change or leadership programme; or to navigate a period of transformation (such as digitisation); or to break into new markets, new geographies, with new products; or to help accelerate aspects of business growth.
We can help you create, populate and operate your Advisory Boards. We can help you define your Board strategy, write your Terms of Reference, identify the skill sets you need on your Board, find the right people for you, provide Chair and Secretariate functions as required, and help deliver the Board outputs.
We treat all enquiries with absolute discretion and without any implied commitment or obligation
