We specialize in strategic leadership for organizational performance during times of change.

Bridging strategy and execution when the future is uncertain is where most C-suite executives struggle. We help build adaptive capability and a stronger change mindset in leaders to unlock the potential of their people a so they can more clearly translate their vision into reality.

What does this look like in practice?

Adaptability is fundamental to our human flourishing and fulfillment. Without the ability to grow and change, we risk losing relevance as leaders, suffering from lack of engagement in our organizations, and spiraling into low performance as companies and mental health challenges for our people. But if we can overcome our natural aversion to change and uncertainty with a more courageous stance, we can feel more relevant, energized and able to make a difference when the context is shifting. But courageous leadership requires a clear vision, shared aspirations, and a combination of key skills to help people focus their energy on the right things. The best companies and organizations deliberately deploy courage to navigate uncertainty, build resilience, and cope with change so they can innovate for the future. The courage with which an organization sees itself as a change agent in the world can determine the impact it will have and the emotional strength of its people. A courageous mindset among leaders and teams will drive the right culture and behaviors to overcome the inevitable hurdles and tensions that uncertainty creates.

It is people who will provide the source of energy to bring change to fruition. The best organizational leaders are therefore experts at harnessing this energy and leveraging the unique strengths of their people. Empathy is the key leadership skill for this kind of engagement. We explore empathy to harness the potential of individuals and groups to execute on the business strategy through greater emotional clarity and focused effort. We explore hidden group dynamics, exposing dysfunctions and building group alignment to strengthen engagement and performance through empathy. We challenge leaders at all levels to question their own assumptions about human needs and broaden their thinking.

Performance can then happen when great people align behind a powerful purpose using a change mindset. But courage and empathy are necessary but not sufficient ingredients for sustained success in today's uncertain world. The mechanics of leadership are as important as mindset, and true performance requires active leadership, continuous reinvention, and on-going adjustments to strategy. We help organizations navigate these choppy waters too, looking at strategic alignment, performance metrics, and underlying structures and processes to achieve results.

We use all of these principles to advise and coach leaders as they navigate change, drawing on our own personal experience as leaders in large global organizations and applying the insights we have gained.
