Why people are attracted to us
Company CEOs select our team based approach for many reasons, mainly they tell us that we are:
There to inspire confidence: to have expertise on side, with a senior professional backed up by our team advising you and acting on your behalf.
Affordable: to secure access to high level talent for as little as one day per week, and a fraction of what it would otherwise cost for a senior full-time employee.
Flexible: working with the team based structure it is possible to change skillsets as priorities develop, without the burden of redeploying full-time staff.
Low risk: committing to a part-time role with one of our team means you secure the best advice in an efficient way to manage expenditure and risk in a business. Securing a suitable part-time senior professional instead of a full-time equivalent can remove risk and uncertainty from the business.
What we do to support and develop our team
A rigorous selection programme is used to ensure the new candidates are a good match for our culture and they share our values: open, progressive, passionate.
That they are high calibre professionals with extensive experience is a pre-requisite, however, all candidates must also pass our barbeque test. They must be able to adapt and ‘fit in’ with our clients and be as comfortable being an experienced board executive, as they are hosting and cooking sausages at our annual barbeque.
Learning and Development Programmes
A range of support, including learning and development programmes exist to help new principals come on-board, learn our philosophy and IP. The on-boarding programme is a thorough introduction to our methods of working and protocols, our services and our culture.
In addition we offer a series of webinars, tutorials and access to our central team and our intranet for constant global support, access to shared group content and to keep a check on collective brand alignment.
Coaching and mentoring
Where assistance is needed, mentoring and leadership coaching is provided, to support our people to adapt to the new role and our unique approach.
We hold regular conferences for ideas exchange, networking, learning and development and strategic discussion.
