An evidence-based approach to developing leadership excellence

During our leadership reviews, we take the time to understand your current leadership, management and cultural challenges. Only then do we provide an in-depth plan for change and engagement.

When an organisation is looking to undertake a programme of leadership development and/or cultural change, those organisations which apply an evidence-based approach see a significant improvement in the overall impact and sustainability of said programme.

Our leadership review services support leaders, talent management professionals, HR directors, and organisational development professionals to prioritise key areas which benefit from investment, time, money and energy.

This enables organisations to track the impact of their leadership and management investments over a period of time.

The Pulse Check

Understanding the overall health and wellbeing of our organisations is an important first step in any change. It can be a helpful way to take stock on progress as change is implemented. The TCM ‘Pulse Check’ provides a snapshot of the current leadership effectiveness and culture in organisations.

The  review comprises:

  • An interview by a TCM expert consultant with an HR, L&D, or OD professional or senior leader. Through the interview, information is gathered using the TCM ‘5 enablers of leadership’ framework (vision, resilience, clarity, agility and compassion).
  • Feedback is reviewed and presented as a short report with performance in each of the 5 areas highlighted in terms of positive indicators and areas for improvement.
  • Recommendations and action plans for development are proposed with an opportunity for further consultation to review these or any other aspects of the review.

This review is a free service offered by TCM for HR, L&D, and OD professionals and leaders involved in leading culture change or leadership effectiveness. It’s a great starting point for any organisation as they develop new strategies for culture and leadership development.

Vital Signs Surveys for Culture and Performance

Our vital signs surveys provide an overview of culture, engagement and performance in organisations.  Leaders receive clear, evidence-based recommendations for priorities and quick wins, backed up by research, analysis and diagnosis.

More rigorous than our ‘Pulse Check’ but less involved than the in-depth ‘3D Review’, the TCM ‘Vital Signs’ review is a diagnostic tool that provides a good basis for decision making. The approach uses our 5 enablers of leadership effectiveness which include vision, resilience, clarity, agility and compassion, as a basis for review, using indicators for performance in each of these areas.

The Vital Signs review comprises:

  • A desktop review of existing data within the organisation
  • Semi-structured interviews with a defined stakeholder group representing different areas of your organisation
  • A survey on key issues for analysis
  • Analysis including correlation of different data to identify trends and distinctive differences in different groups within the organisation
  • A written report and presentation to the leadership team/survey sponsors

The vital signs report will inform leaders of their overall performance, in terms of culture, engagement and climate. We’ll report on your leadership and culture objectives with recommendations for actions such as culture change, defining purpose and values, leadership and management development, coaching, team building, values and behaviour frameworks, or conflict management.

The 5D Review

TCM’s 5D reviews enable leaders and others to understand the priorities and opportunities for action. With a clear view of data and indicators for engagement, performance, leadership effectiveness and team climate, leaders can take robust, evidence-based decisions. We are experts in analysing organisations, based on data and human factors such as behaviour and perspectives. Discovering trends, identifying patterns and diagnosing root causes is an important aspect of how we create a holistic picture to inform leadership and culture development.

Discover. Diagnose. Desired-state. Design. Deploy

The 5D review process is an in-depth analysis which spans climate, culture, behaviours, policies and relationships. The 5D review examines your leadership competencies and behaviours, your management practices, your HR systems and their combined impact on your culture measured in terms of wellbeing, engagement, inclusion and overall performance.

TCM’s unique 5D reviews shine a light on:

  • How an organisation is performing in terms of ability to achieve objectives
  • Where pockets of high performance and lower performance exist
  • The reasons and factors that impact on capability to be effective at an individual, team and area level
  • The drivers for engagement and disengagement in the organisation overall
  • Potential quick wins and longer-term strategies to develop a positive, people-centred and high performing culture
  • How conflict resolution works in the organisation as a whole and at a functional area and team level
  • How transformational leadership practices can be developed at levels through the organisation to create culture change

We work in partnership with your leadership team to ensure that data can be interpreted accurately and recommendations are aligned with your purpose, visions, values and corporate strategy.  The final result is a clear and comprehensive picture and a future-focused set of recommendations for optimisation of culture and sustained performance.

The course covered a number of key areas in a short space of time, but did not feel overwhelming.
