We have 12 years of experience working in multinationals with a culturally diverse population. We train and coach for leadership of culturally intelligent and culturally adept teams as lack of awareness of cultures gives rise to unnecessary misunderstanding.
We help women leaders to garner clarity on the challenges they face when they step into leadership positions. Our courses are tailored both to the unique individuals but also the common challenges faced by women in leadership roles. We support them in acquiring essential skills such as political savvy, visibility and leadership presence.
Collaborative Team Leadership
We coach leaders for a smooth transition into team leadership and creating the environment needed for every individual on the team to make the most of their potential. Our clients will tell you that we are highly experienced in understanding the unique dynamics of different teams and support them from shifting from silo thinking to collaborative thinking.
We help build strategies for leaders to confidently and competently manage conflicts. We focus on the emotional intelligence and the leader's own self-management. We also emphasise on every individual’s response towards conflict : be it flight or fight or freeze and provide them the tools to calm down and engage with conflict in a way that it is win-win and helps everyone to focus.
We partner with managers and leaders to boost their team leadership skills. Even for a high-performance executive, transition to a manager's metric of success can be daunting, and we work with managers to smoothen their transition through different channels such as training on constructive communication, peer coaching strategies, influencing skills and solid stakeholder engagement abilities.
