Transform Leadership

Leaders Under Pressure

Leaders of organisations have never faced as big a challenge as they do today where they have to forget the lessons learnt over many years and re-invent and transform strategy, organisation and their role.

It begins with awareness and insights about the scope and systemic nature of the evolution of organisations now underway. Grayfeather can assist with bespoke workshops, coaching and training to help leaders get to grips with the exponential world and its impacts on all facets of business.

A New Approach to Management

In modern organisations the role of the manager changes from monitor to enabler. Managers need a new range of beliefs, competencies and skills to fulfil their new role. Managers now need a wide range of skills that equip them with dealing with complexity, to astute critical thinking, from deep insight into human psychology to the impact of digital. Grayfeather offers a bespoke range of engagements to equip managers for this new set of responsibilities.

Leadership development programmes in organisations are based on an outdated mode of thinking about the nature of the organisation and role of leaders and mangers. Allow us to re-think and re-shape your leadership and management development programmes to meet the demands of a modern world.

Become Agile

Agile Transformation

Agile is flexible, it is the ability to move quickly and easily. It is what every organisation now needs to be, but old traditions, hierarchies and cultures mean that organisations often face failure before they become agile.

  • Develop a design thinking capability
  • Transform the HR department to become more agile

Every organisation will need to become an IT organisation with digital technologies underpinning process, product and practice. But most employees are not digitally literate enough to meet the challenge and organisational cultures have not absorbed digital into the DNA of the organisation.

We work with organisations to create the culture, competence, structures and practices to become digitally enabled.

  • Digital Cultural Transformation
  • Thinking Digital for Leaders
  • Digital Skills for non-­Digital Managers

All courses and workshops are available in person or virtual, content and duration can be customized for client requirements.

Transform Culture

Cultural Transformation and Change

In the modern economy, culture has become the most valuable component of organisations. The culture determines everything that happens in an organisation. From the products the organisation produces, to the people you hire.  Are you wondering what you can do to make your organisation more innovative, smarter and more responsive. And in a post-Covid world, how you can keep your employees engaged and aligned even if they are working from home.

“A firm’s culture helps determine whether it succeeds, fails, or limps along. It shapes the firm’s responses when transformative new technologies appear.  One of the critical roles of the entrepreneur is to create space for new firm cultures.” – Ryan Avent, The Wealth of Humans

Grayfeather supports organisations in changing their culture systemically. We work with you to uncover the current beliefs and assumptions holding back your progress and plan systematically to change first the beliefs and then the behaviors.

Cultural Training

If culture is a key component to the successful future proofing of businesses, you can no longer afford to outsource culture formation and management to external providers. Every leader and Human Resources specialist in the organisation need to have a deep understanding of what culture is and how it works.

Grayfeather offers training courses for both leaders and HR practitioners to orientate and prepare them to a working world where culture is key.
