Leadership and executive assessments – Supporting better decisions

Our leadership and executive assessments are used for selection, development, identification of potential and bench-strength evaluations. We assist our clients in making the right selection decision by better understanding the depth and breadth of the candidate leadership capabilities.

Determining bench-strength during acquisitions, for talent management, succession planning or change of strategy – we have the experience that goes beyond such measurement. We provide leadership coaching to help bridge identified gaps to help our client get the best of their leadership teams.

The assessment tools are customised to meet client needs and seniority. Our assessments are available online for convenience of our clients, or at our offices for the off-site option. Various in-basket exercises assess competencies in a practical way.

On-boarding and monitoring – Transitioning leaders

At SPi we understand the increased complexity and performance expectations of leaders. This is even more so for newly appointed leaders – and the intent on delivering early in their tenure, they walk a fine line between success and failure. The cost of executive failure is high, even with the perfect candidate, there is no guarantee of success.

Organisations do their best to on-board new leaders, and SPi augments internal efforts with executive on-boarding coaching services. Our unique philosophy and exclusive licence on a great on-boarding tool and experience in executive coaching reduces the ramp up time for new leaders.

Our tools help focus and target the sub-optimal areas – which can be addressed through either job or personal resources.

This personalised attention and confidential coaching relationship leads to an open and frank dialogue. Where required, this support extends to team alignment intervention.

SPi offers the same on-boarding coaching to newly promoted internal leaders who have different challenges – but similar in many ways with a newly appointed leader.

Through our professional support, ramp-up time, new leader turnover and direct report, turnover is reduced.

We build internal capability so the same benefits can be translated to management levels below your executive teams.

Team evaluation and organisational alignment

In our modern era many organisations have teams as a core integrating structure to bring about shared meaning, innovation and collaboration. Regularly teams need to deliver across multifunctional and multiple stakeholders’ interest.

Though our team alignment process we have helped teams to be more cohesive, co-operative, having a single goal and understanding their mutual purpose. All these factors are important for teams’ high performance. SPi helps align organisation design to strategy.

However, what we can’t measure you can’t manage. SPi has a tool that helps organisations and teams align their goals and activities with the organisation’s strategic plan in such a way that it is transparent, results-driven and practical. Our Performance Alignment Tool helps to track and monitor weekly, monthly or quarterly performance in an easy and cost efficient way.

When people are in the right roles doing the right work the organisational performance improves.

Leadership coaching

In today’s world the only constant is change. Change is essential for growth and to adapt to a rapidly shifting marketplace. Leaders are faced with complexity, uncertainty and market validity, leaders must stay ahead of their game to remain relevant and competitive. It is therefore important that the pace of leadership development must exceed the pace of the business conditions to ensure long-term business.

Research has shown that leaders who continually invest in themselves and their leadership team can navigate themselves through these business conditions successfully. SPi helps leaders, through their deep expertise in leadership development and coaching, to assist the leader and his team to navigate successfully through these complexities. Leadership coaching can facilitate productive change in leaders and their teams.

We are dedicated to ensure that through coaching processes we equip leaders with the right competencies, capability and empowerment to balance the delicate situation between short-term profitability and long-term sustainability. We help leaders to do all of this with a lower energy cost.

Through our coaching, our leaders build a coaching culture that encourages organisations to learn and adapt. Leadership coaching has emerged as the best way to help individuals learn to think and work together more effectively.
