Professional Development

Every business is different but we all depend on our people – without them we wouldn’t have a business. Upskilling and engaging your people produces tangible business rewards. That means training (including in the industry training or certification your business needs), coaching and mentoring, actively lifting productivity, measuring performance and putting effective reward and recognition programmes in place.

We help you do that on an individual, team and organisation-wide basis for real business growth.

Only 23% of New Zealanders are mentally and emotionally engaged in their jobs. That’s why it’ll pay to get in touch with us, we’re here to help.

Coaching and mentoring your people is a key part in keeping them engaged. Understanding what their career goals are and helping them to achieve them increases productivity and growth in their roles. It can create measurable increases in satisfaction and that means retaining your best people for longer.

Coaching is a skill and a tool. Like most things the more time you put in, the better you become. Our job is to guide you (or your nominated managers) to help you develop your business’ coaching and mentoring capability across your wider organisation.

Our coaching and mentoring support is tailored to you and your business needs. And as you’d expect, we help you measure its effectiveness within your business. Just get in touch, we’re here to help.

Productivity and engagement are key elements in your people’s performance and consequently, your overall business performance. We provide a series of very effective tools to support you in getting the best from your team:

  1. Skills and behaviour profiling
  2. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) or goal and objective setting
  3. Skill and capability review (talent matrix )
  4. HR systems and processes review
  5. Work force planning
  6. Succession planning to align with your business goals and objectives

The rewards from investing in your people in terms of business growth, are exponential. Just get in touch, we’re here to help.

Performance measurement as much about what you measure as why you measure it. Every business is different and different parts of a business can have very different performance requirements. Our job is to help you identify which measures link to performance value or performance improvement.

It’s easy to say that you want better and faster results from your team but understand what delivers those results means understanding the elements required to do a role at peak performance. That’s where we add real value because our experience will guide you quickly and more effectively to the right performance measures for your team.

We have the tools, the experience and the resources to help you put your finger on the real pulse of your business to measure its true health and get the most from your people. Just get in touch, we’re here to help.

With effective engagement, your people will understand the business drivers that keep you all successful and thriving. Rewarding and recognising their efforts is an important part of keeping them engaged. After all, benefiting from our efforts is a key human driver.

Recognition is as important as reward. Profit share and commissions are only drivers for some people. Acknowledgement and celebration of success is another great driver of improved commitment and performance. And there are many others when you start to think outside the box as we do.

We help you identify the unique drivers for your people, and build the right reward and recognition structure for them. That way, everybody wins and you get real, ongoing results. Just get in touch, we’re here to help.

Whether you need your people to understand a newly implemented business tool or want to inspire culture change; tailored workshops bring your people together to receive a consistent message of support and learning.

Our workshops are designed to be fun and interactive. We provide an exceptional learning environment and we can offer ongoing follow up and support. As you’d expect, we don’t just deliver training; we help you assess and measure its uptake and the performance value your business gains.

We help you identify, deliver and measure training via tailored workshops that give real value for money and genuine engagement by your people. Just get in touch, we’re here to help.

Effective Learning and Development (L&D) means understanding your business needs and being able to benchmark your current performance against an existing standard and / or performance goal. It’s easier and more effective than you think with our help to hand.

Here’s something to consider… CFO says to CEO, “What if we invest in developing our people and they leave?”. CEO replies, “What happens if we don’t and they stay?”. Our job is to help you develop the right L&D so it delivers meaningful results and your good people stay.

Too many businesses don’t budget time or resources to enhance people capability. And yet that’s what will drive your customers’ loyalty, purchasing habits and advocacy on your behalf. Our partners provide quality training in things like time management, negotiation and presentation skills to increase on-the-job performance effectively. Just get in touch, we’re here to help.
