Coaching & Talent Assessments
Getting the most from yourself and your teams can be really hard, without a clear idea of where you are now and where you want to be in the future. That's where my leadership coaching toolkit comes in.
When you start your leadership or executive coaching program with me, we'll use a range of insightful and powerful assessment tools to help you understand yourself better, and diagnose exactly where you need to make the biggest changes to achieve your potential.
All these tools are available to you and your organisation - take a test-drive with me if you'd like to experience the power of these business-ready talent assessment systems.
Understanding what motivates you and your teams to achieve success is central to excellent leadership.
In fact, no amount of perks or pay rises can keep your people from becoming disengaged and exiting your business, if you’re not fully in tune with what they need from their job, their environment and their manager, to feel satisfied.
When you DO get it right, though, your people deliver outstanding results!
I work with a variety of powerful assessment systems, designed to help managers and leaders hire the best people, develop them into top-performers, and retain their knowledge and skills with the right kind of management.
These online talent assessment systems are used by over 75,000 managers worldwide to:
Attract the very best employees
Identify future leadership potential
Reduce bad hiring decisions
Speed up recruitment process
Avoid workplace conflicts
Develop and retain top-performers
You may already know that research confirms that managers learn 70% through “on the job experience”, 20% through social learning, and 10% through formal training or workshops.
What’s more interesting though, is that we forget 50% of the material we learn within 1 hour, unless we put it into practice, quickly.
It’s also been proven that we only learn from our experiences when we are given the opportunity to reflect on them. As a manager, senior leader, or business owner, you know that strong working relationships and higher levels of trust will help you to become a better people manager.
Building better relationships within your organization leads to better decision making, improved processes, and increased engagement and commitment from your workforce. So, ideally you’d have regular opportunities to reflect on your professional experiences, and evaluate your decisions and actions with your peers, to embed what you’re learned along the way.
