Breathe life into personal development plans

Breathe life into personal development plans: for too many, their PDP is nothing more than words on paper. Irrelevant other than in their end of year review. Engage colleagues with 'lunch and learn' sessions where peers inspire each other to stretch beyond their comfort-zone.

Nurture self managed teams

Nurture self managed teams: we've got to get over the notion that manager's have all the answers. When in fact those closest to customers and operational headaches are best placed to fix them. Set teams up to succeed, so they get to grips with the task, the process and the human relationships. And watch emergent leaders step-up.

Equip managers with the tools and the skills to have great conversations

Equip managers with the tools and the skills to have deep person-centred conversations: where values, trust, respect and authenticity aren't just hollow words - they're the natural default behaviours

Create 'Discovery-centres'. Democratise talent - shift it from 'the few' to the many'.

Create 'Discovery-centres': too many colleagues get stuck in a rut. Discovery-centres are the perfect antidote. A chance to discover how to manage my career, develop me and elevate the brand behaviours. Democratise talent - shift it from 'the few' to the many'.

Play to strengths

Play to strengths: encourage everyone to invest 90-minutes of dedicated, distraction-free time each day - to give full expression to their capabilities. When we do meaningful work, we feel better equipped to handle the hassles and frustrations.

Self awareness is the road to self mastery

Self awareness is the road to self mastery: build feedback into meetings and team development days. And by 'feedback' we mean telling people what they do well - more than what they get wrong. This builds confidence, belief and commitment - the source of our personal power.

Create a mindset where every employee leads their monthly one-to-ones

Create a mindset where every employee leads their monthly one-to-ones: to discuss the things that truly matter to them. This simple act changes the 'rules of the game'. We take the lead, drive the conversation and take ownership.

Use action-learning

Use action-learning to spark personal learning whilst piloting small scale innovations. It's how to create 'change-ready' leaders at every level.

Assess every new hire against 3 dimensions

Assess every new hire against 3 dimensions: 'fit to role', 'fit to brand' and 'fit to grow'. If you just 'hire-for-now', you fail to future-proof your business.
