Management Due Dilligence
A leaders track record can be a good indicator - but is not necessarily enoughif the new task demands requires very different competencies. Success in coming up with new ideas means little if operationalising a strategy is what is needed. The ability to lead a mature compnay or a subsidiary in "in fair weather conditions" is not a good perdictor of behaviour when a storm arrives. Nor is the evaluation of others based your own preferences.
Leading a company during a period of transition or change requires an ability to manoever in unchartered waters. To be able to bring the rest of the team on board for the journey - management, employees, owners, customers, suppliers, authorities and so forth. To utilise the available resources wisely and create results for the team. To be speedy but controlled. To instil confidence in the team and gain their trust.
All organisations want to attract the right people and small and mid sized companies often need help with this. Through our programmes, developed jointly with our clients, we ensure that people with the right profile are available when the need arise. We alos help our clients communicating their "brand" in an honest and credible manner.
