Global Capability Framework
Bringing the right capability, to the right table, at the right time is a priority for future success in every organisation.
The GCF creates a clear picture of the core and essential cross-professional, multi-disciplinary capabilities individuals should possess in order to effectively drive an organisation’s strategic direction and orient teams to a desired culture. It describes the transferrable attributes all leaders need for success inside and outside of their organisation.
Connecting a new language of leadership in a borderless world.
Executive Mental Health
Helping leaders balance high pressure and high performance.
COVID-19 has put mental health leadership on the agenda for boards and the executive like never before. Employee mental health must be a key component of organisational strategy. For decades we have worked with senior leaders at the coalface of change. We understand the pressures and challenges faced at an executive level in fast-paced, high-performance environments, and we have a solution.
Get some Breathing Space today.
The platform where future business success meets future talent needs.
Connect powerfully with future talent. Optimise meaningful diversity in your team and fill cognitive blind spots. Determine which top-rated future-skills your organisation needs and dial up or dial down risk-appetite, change-readiness, tech-literacy and a host of other critical skills across your leadership teams.
A future-selection process for future-facing leaders.
ESG Sustainability Reporting
Sustainability is key to businesses that value longevity and loyalty.
Our heritage as a trusted advisor to leadership teams led to the development and implementation of our best-practice ESG Sustainability Reporting framework. Our ESG service partners with your team to document and develop Environmental, Social and Governance standards to deliver accountability and value creation to your stakeholders.
