As consultant’s consultant — we have worked with hundreds of global consulting professionals and teams from the leading global consulting firms. Here are the 12 competencies we believe are required in a High Performance Executive.
What We Do
We focus on the executive’s agenda:
- How do you build exceptional executive teams?
- How do you develop a pipeline of top talent for key roles?
- How do you develop cultures that optimize sustainable performance?
- How do you communicate, manage perceptions and effectively lead your board?
- How do you communicate, inspire and drive strategy?
- How do you effectively work the relationship, perceptual, political and management vs. leadership dimensions of your role?
Our philosophy –We believe the best models for learning and practice fields for leading are in the everyday business world. We are not anti-academic but our clients have found little value within academia to address their real world practical problems and challenges. We work in a business setting and bring clients and other business leaders together.
