Every organization needs a strategic direction, complete with goals and objectives that are clearly articulated and measured on a regular basis. Without them, they often face associated problems and issues.
We begin the process by gaining an understanding of the strategic direction and mission of the organization. We have helped many organizations in the development of a strategic plan. We interview the key company managers to:
- Determine, or establish the strategic direction
- Gain insight into the culture and personality of the company
- Understand the organization and the management team
- Understand the goals and objectives
- Build a tailored plan to address, correct or strengthen each employee
The key to addressing organizational issues is to understand the strengths, weakness and culture of the organization. It may be difficult or impossible to implement strategic plans without a supporting organizational culture. Without understanding the culture and assessing the employees’ current competencies, the management team is unable to implement strategies.
We use assessment tools to:
- Identify the current culture
- Identify the organizations’ strengths and weaknesses
- Develop the preferred culture
- Measure workforce engagement
Such information assists in the implementation of its strategic direction, but also enables it to identify the needed training and coaching.
Organizations are as strong as their individual employees and their competencies. Our approach assists companies in establishing the core competencies of key employees in terms of the ability to perform specific job responsibilities.
Our goals are to:
- Establish core competencies
- Hire the right people
- Assist management in correctly positioning employees in their most productive roles.
- Develop appropriate training
- Identify future leaders
It is important to understand that for a business to achieve sustained excellence, it must match those individuals who possess the core competencies, to their most productive roles and develop replacements.
Developing employees is becoming one of the most critical roles of business leaders and managers. In today’s workplace, employers are discovering a new and challenging set of issues. Managing a diverse workplace is a challenge for the management teams throughout all industry.

- Skills assessments relating to core competencies

Focus on the development of specific skill sets within the organization is an important factor in business success. The identification of leadership competencies has been accomplished.
