Leadership and organisational development
Giving organisations and people the power to change
Our consultancy service has a strong reputation for leadership and organisational development services with the very latest in industry thinking and cutting edge practices tailored to your macro/micro/internal environment. We give organisations, teams and individuals the knowledge and skills to deal with a range of leadership and organisational development needs. Our team of leadership and development Specialists and Coaches have worked with an extensive range of NHS, private and public sector clients at all levels of seniority, including Board level – bringing a fresh perspective to each challenge.
Organisational change, challenges, a lack of perspective, or just being stuck in a rut can create uncertainty for individuals and teams which impacts on their performance. For organisations the challenges may be financial, political or the prospect of a CQC investigation. For individuals the challenge may involve taking on managerial responsibilities with only their technical or clinical expertise to fall back on. Often roles and expectations are ill defined, pressures relentless, and capacity stretched, which can leave teams and individuals wondering how to cope or struggling to achieve results.
Identifying the issue is our first priority. We work with boards and leadership teams around cultural challenges that might be impacting on the organisation. Or we may run a diagnostic session with a senior individual to define their goals and build a programme to strengthen their skills. These first critical conversations get to the heart of what support will really make a difference.As experienced leadership and development Specialists and Coaches we develop a wide range of competencies from resilience to emotional intelligence and personal leadership. As well as managing cultural change and leadership development, we also offer strategic and practical support on building, recognising, rewarding and retaining talent.
An NHS team isn’t performing as well as expected. The senior clinician has been given managerial responsibility but without any formal experience or support for managing teams. The opportunity to focus on that aspect of the job is limited by conflicting priorities and time pressures - often leading to clinicians struggling to make effective decisions. We work with the individual to design tailor made solutions and coach them through the process. We work with them to develop their competencies so they can more skilfully manage their team enabling the team to perform effectively.
With the organisation we can take a closer look at roles and expectations of managers and leaders to inform the type of individual and team development that will help. With insightful analysis and experienced support, organisations learn to cope with management development and leadership challenges. Having support to step back and look at what’s effective and what needs attention is vital to unlock potential and performance. When senior leaders have clear accountability, can identify their own challenges and set clear objectives, they have a much greater stake in their own development. Becoming better at making decisions and coping with the pressures makes them more effective leaders. Their teams and organisations function more effectively.
