Great leaders build amazing workplaces where everyone thrives
Great leaders are hard to find. So we look beyond the obvious – sometimes in unlikely places – drilling deep from start to finish. We give you a honed set of choices that fit your business, and help you navigate the process of choosing and appointing the right person.
We source at Board, C-Suite, Executive and senior management levels, across a wide range of functions. Most of the time, we’re helping you fill your toughest roles, where the pool of great people is in high demand: Black executives, and leaders in Africa.
The executive landscape is a complex and challenging one to navigate, even for experienced leaders, who are frequently in transition. We provide an integrated executive coaching process that supports leaders through demanding transitions to increase and assure their positive impact. Transition periods include new executive appointments, leadership succession and internal promotions, executive readiness for emerging leaders, and others.
With talent maps, we help you make some of your best and most informed decisions. Talent Mapping (also called ‘Market Mapping’) provides assurance on important business (and people) decisions, by giving you data and insights. Our clients use talent maps to answer questions like:
“What does the market of EE talent look like for a specific role?”
“Should we make an internal appointment, or is there a more suitable candidate out there?”
“How do we create leadership succession”?
We offer internationally-accredited psychometric assessments through a strategic partnership with JvR Consulting Psychologists. With more than twenty years’ of expertise in the JvR Africa Group, and together with a local and global network of partners and associates, they are at the forefront of providing clients with sound people investment propositions. They provide commentary (and assurance) on leadership capabilities, organisational values and behaviours, succession potential, strengths and development areas – using the most valid and reliable methodologies, within your budget and timeframes.
