ORGANISATIONS

It is often said that an organisations greatest asset is its people. Yet the development of people becomes a low priority in many organisations.

Organisations often suffer from being unable to truly identify and measure their values, culture and staff alignment – the DNA of the organisation. APICON’s “applied intelligence” methodologies enable objective measurement of these “soft” qualities and provide personal development to address gaps thus addressing the alignment of an organisations greatest asset- its people.

INDIVIDUALS

“The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been.”
Henry A. Kissinger

Central to the ability to achieve organisational goals are the skills and competencies of both the current leaders and the future leaders who will succeed them. In the rapidly changing environment in which organisations operate today

  • visualising the future
  • devising and executing the strategies
  • preparing the organization for the future

are critical tasks of the senior leadership team.

Many of our current leaders have built their executive position from a strong foundation of technical competence and have developed leadership skills through modelling and experience. Personal development activities can be ignored due to the pressures of executive and personal priorities. As a result there are gaps in executive competence – gaps which may lead to underperformance which can be systemic or appear when the organisation is under pressure.

APICON applies Transformative principles to identify and address these competence gaps in individual Executives and Executive teams. The Transformative approach is the combination of three dimensions:

  • Psychological – understanding of the self
  • Convictional – review of belief & values system
  • Behavioural – application

To develop a pipeline of future leaders the process is cascaded to identified potential leaders and the generation of targeted development activities including

  • Formal Training
  • Projects and assignments to bridge the experience gaps
  • Mentoring and Coaching
