About us

We work with organisations that deliver the services that have a day-to-day impact on the lives of people across the country. We understand and value the importance of these services and the role that outstanding leadership plays in delivering them.

We also believe that finding, assessing and developing these leaders should be rooted in evidence. The diagnostic tools we use to underpin our work directly assess the leadership behaviours that deliver better performance. These tools are an integral, not additional element of what we do.

Our approach is based on combining the in depth experience and market understanding of our people with the independence of the latest tools that help remove unconscious bias and provide greater, more reliable insight. We also invest in commissioning research that supports the development of leadership capacity and effectiveness. Through this we are better positioned to support our clients to deliver more.
