For the last 25 years we have been developing leading edge approaches to leadership and team development, many of which are contained in our book “Reflective Leaders and High-Performance Organizations” Our experience has allowed us to develop and apply core models that create a foundation of our development work – and in addition allow clients to measure the effectiveness of results before, during and at completion of our involvements. These include:
- The core “Task / Relationship” model that ensures the goal of building effective relationships (the way we work with others) is to become more competitive in executing task (delivering on our mission, goals and objectives);
- The RP5 model for organizational excellence founded upon the concepts of various global models for excellence (EFQM, Baldrige) that integrates Reflective Leadership (R), the enabling of effective Purpose, Passion, People, Process and Performance (P5) and the achievement of 5/5 ratings on client / stakeholder satisfaction
- The 7 step leadership development model founded on shared organizational values integrated with effective personal and team development, and
- The new and unique 6 step team development model that provides for continual development (the journey) rather than the linear approach (more of an event).
In addition we work with clients to align organizational expectations with leadership and culture development and create measurement tools to assess reality of current situations.
In 2005 Nick authored a book on emerging governance systems “Governance, Accountability and Sustainability: an agenda for the 21st century.” This book suggested many of the ideas that are now being developed through CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and the emergence of IIRC (International Integrated Reporting Committee).
