The company can only be as good as, its business leaders who devise the corporate vision, guide strategy, ensure policy implementation.
 

PART (A) ACE - Achieving Corporate Excellence

ACE: Achieving Corporate Excellence- helps you company address the key question: what are the key levers in your business model to drive long term competitiveness? We help delegates understand a "SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE" where the new approach is reinforced and sustained by systems improvement & a shift in values and beliefs are actualized, resulting in measurable impact on enterprise performance. This proven initiative is embedded in-company strategy planning retreats; we aim to customize Business Excellence Models to fit a company's requirement. Our unique achievement is assisting our clients to DESIGN & STARTUP their own Business Excellence Models & Balanced Scorecard (without undue cost or ceremony) for self-assessment & continuous improvement.


PART (B) PATHFINDER© - The strategy planning retreat

Companies need to identify blind spots, check direction & clear the backlog of drift caused by sporadic growth or a "reactionary" approach to managing. A key component of building competitive organizations is to ensure that your core operating principles, organizational structure, performance framework, management processes, culture, and job accountabilities are fully aligned to your strategy, and that they deliver improvements in performance. Our systematic corporate planning process: PATHFINDER© helps clients create a practical roadmap that enables them to implement their strategies effectively by bridging the gap between strategy, operations, structure and people - with a focus on execution. This has been confirmed as a value added proposition by our past clients. A distinct outcome, has been identifying STRATEGIC INITIATIVES to ignite a new corporate renewal.


PART (C) EXECUTION - The discipline of winning companies


This is a sequel to the earlier two interventions; It is the “missing link” between aspirations and results - the real test of the strategic leader. Vision without Execution is Delusion. The most critical source of competitive advantage is quite often the ABILITY TO EXECUTE. What every major change program needs to succeed is a solid execution plan that enables consistency and alignment. The thrust is to learn the discipline of execution to blend with strategy. In reality this means understanding business complexities; viewing change as a project; address the challenges in getting things done; align people with goals to achieve the results. In our initial concept building workshop, we use a combination of case discussions, exercises to help managers create actual work plans and activities to create measures and identify the key activities that will predict goal achievement.

META + COACH© - Creating the leadership pipeline

META + COACH©is a proprietary model developed by Dr Wilfred Monteiro in 2011 Its objective is to interrelate personal aspirations and role demands with the organization’s current and future business challenges and goals.

META COACHING begins with key strengths needed to be successful in the three domains of personal growth; interpersonal competence and role effectiveness. The coachee and coach work in equal partnership to identify organize, and work upon important life & work priorities. The master key to any effective coaching intervention lies a relationship of trust and honest, helpful feedback between the coach and the coachee. This helps in self-exploration; identifying development needs, planning development activities and supporting problem-solving in a highly personalized relationship with the coach. It works to reinforce positive behaviors and further develop strengths and analyze the root cause of areas of improvement. The result is a focused action plan supported by hands-on guidance that strengthens manager's performance.

It was particularly designed for a hard pressed managers who need support and guidance when at the crossroads: making major career leaps, overcoming recurrent performance issues, addressing competency gaps and tackling complex assignments.
