to assist your

Organisational Development Program

Phase 1

To start future-proofing your Organisation, we will have to start with a change in mindset. A change in mindset is preceded by a number of diagnostic exercises to understand the current mindset that drives behaviour in the Organisation. These behaviours, either productive or destructive, are often influence by the current leadership style, techniques and skills.

Phase 1, thus, takes a diagnostic and analytical and holistic view of your Organisation’s in an age where adaptation is a much better predictor of success.

But first, we start with WHY.

Phase 2
Following the diagnosis and analysis in Phase 1, it should be clear to your Organisation and Leadership team how important it is to look into the future.

In Phase 2, I share some simple tools for scanning the near and far horizons, which will enable you to define a clearer direction for your business and help you to identify any obstacles your Organisation and Leadership team might meet along the way.

In short, we need to look at the HOW.

Phase 3

Finally and with some tactics for gathering and deciphering the clues in the data retrieved thus far, the Organisation and its Leadership team need to ready the Organisations and its Employees to act rapidly on what has been identified, discovered and learned in the previous two phases.

We are finally looking at the WHAT.

Human Resources and Labour Law Services

Visit our “Membership Program” Page to view the available services offered in the form of an annual membership. The services offered through our annual membership program aim to achieve the following:

Infinite thinking replaces finite thinking

Information sharing (i.e. inquiries, proposals etc.) is accelerated, allowing rapid responses to operational issues

Stress becomes a renewed sense of passion

Time is made available for the Leaders of an Organisation to focus on strategic decision-making.

Productive and Peaceful Labour Relations

More Organisational resources are unlocked giving Employees greater engagement and motivation

Leaders must, thus, be in a position to steer the Organisation and, even with power distribution, have to maintain continuous oversight of the collective direction of the business. To do that, Leaders need access to good information and must have the ability to communicate decisions.

Our Human Resources and Labour Relations (online) Membership Program, thus, offers speedy and professional Labour Relations and Human Resources advice and guidance. We aim to encourage a proactive mindset with regards to your Employment Relations thereby reducing costly, unproductive and time consuming work relations.
