Organization Consulting

We take a whole systems view to building people and organization capabilities. Our consulting practice builds on the science of Industrial-Organizational Psychology to provide solutions that approach talent management, leadership capabilities, and organization capability building in a holistic, integrated way.

 

Organizations sometimes need an objective assessment of their leadership talent. We provide easy-to-implement and time-efficient solution to help you assess leadership potential and plan for succession. Psychometric assessments combined with structured behavioral interviews, 360 feedback and Manager interviews provide a robust, reliable, and valid way to assess leadership potential and plan for succession. Summary developmental report is prepared. Assessment results are reviewed with key sponsors (CEO/Business Leader/HR Leader). Confidential, 1-1 feedback session is held with the participant to help them craft targeted development plans.

Organizations need a clear view of their critical leadership talent. We consult with organizations to help evolve a process that brings objectivity to assessing their critical talent. This begins with first identifying requirements for the target roles – past performance, business and functional knowledge, critical skills, experiences, leadership competencies, personal characteristics. We then evolve a systematic process for collecting this information on the candidates being evaluated, develop guidelines for leaders to assess their internal candidates and provide a potential rating and recommendation. Tools, templates and guides help transform a highly subjective process into a more fact based process.
This process begins with defining the key roles within an organization and critical requirements for these roles. We can then assess existing talent and potential future successors and provide insights into the strengths of your leadership pipeline. Development planning, executive coaching and transition coaching can support strengthening of the leadership pipeline.
We work with organizations who are interested in defining or refreshing their core values in support of business strategy. Our approach involved in-depth engagement with the top team and cross-section of the organization to build up the value definition. We then partner with our client organization to cascade the communication across the organization and make the values functional, and supporting the desired organization culture.
We partner with client organizations to help define their leadership competency models and build strategically linked HR processes to support the leadership competencies. Organizational Values and Leadership Competencies work together to help create the desired organizational culture.
We can design and implement custom 360 feedback processes for our clients in support of the organizational culture and leadership competencies.
