Leaders in talent advisory. Talent is a company’s most critical competitive advantage. Talent management and development plays a crucial role in business strategy because it manages and grows one of the most important assets of the company — its people.
We help you select and build the right performance ingredients and behavioural habits to establish a culture code of sustainable growth.
We help optimise and align passion and purpose and make high performance and good decision making a way of life.
By developing high-performance habits around leadership and team capabilities, relationships and structures, processes and systems, our Smart People Performance services help to ignite alignment, innovation, system adoption, productivity and growth at every level.
Your organisational business strategy is clear, but it takes the right talent in the right place with the right skill sets to deliver the strategy. A good talent strategy helps reduce competency gaps and increases organisational effectiveness. Your growth needs for now and the future informs our analysis for your optimal organisational design. We map out your particular skill sets needed to feed your organisation’s needs now and into the future.

How your leaders behave determines your company culture. As you know, culture eats strategy for breakfast. When company cultures are particularly high-performing, their workforce delights clients and customers, positively impacting their strategic intent year after year. Our approach is to focus on answering questions on all aspects that impact how your leaders shape culture:
Employee engagement is the “emotional connect” that an employee feels towards its organisation. What makes one feel connected to an organisation and motivates to deliver her/his best varies from person to person. It also changes with what is happening in and around the world. We live in a world where trends change in the blink of an eye. A practice that is working fine today might not be applicable tomorrow. The same goes for employee engagement.
With every new generation in the workforce, employee engagement trends change drastically. Forward-thinking business leaders and managers must keep themselves updated on these engagement strategies. It has now become a best practice that is critical to master.
The new way of work requires a massive mindset change and the competency to intuit what the people in teams experience and feel. Do your leaders make your people feel this?
What is your leadership identity, how do they view themselves and more importantly how do their teams view and experience their leadership? How leadership ‘show up’ today is the biggest factor in Talent acquisition and retention. We have spent the last 6 years studying this and designing our MoveMe! Leadership Big Lift programme: a 4-STEP LEADERSHIP
EVOLUTION TO A NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE MINDSET. Directly linked to Talent and ROI.
Jobs to be Done (JTBD) is an approach to sales operations focused on the clear understanding of the underserved pain points of the customer. This alone is a vast improvement over alternative approaches since it does not rely on luck and avoids wasting time and money on irrelevant or suboptimal alternatives. It’s a proactive sales approach to the tangible work your customers need to complete, focused more on the results of the partnership than the relationship itself.
“Customers don’t want a drill, they want a hole in the wall”
Our Sales advisory team help your sales leadership and sales teams to:
For example; A payroll specialist doesn’t want a computer program, she wants an easy method for tracking hourly wages.
Our Jobs to be Done (JTBD) sales framework for creating value creates the ability in your sales organisation to deeply understand what “tasks to do” a customer has in particular life situations, how he or she makes decisions about alternatives, what trade-offs are made, whether the “suffering” is so great that solutions are cobbled together and what forces are at work in making decisions for and against selecting new solutions.
