Great leaders execute strategies that deliver extraordinary business results. The skill that sets them apart is:
Execution – the ability to deliver on the strategic vision.
Execution takes place in the “trenches” and requires attention to the management of individual and organizational performance. We provide the critical tools for leaders to manage high performance.
STRATEGIC CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Leaders drive change. It is the essence of leadership to transform the status quo; to inspire a shared vision of the future and to realise its practical achievement.
The Managing Director of PenLion accumulated experience and expertise in the fields of strategic and operational change leadership whilst at the Standard Bank and the Bankseta. This experience included corporate wide strategic change, business unit change and systems/process change in conjunction with the Executive Committee, business consultants such as McKinsey, Accenture etc and providers such as PeopleSoft, SAP and others.
Consequently, PenLion's strategic change management approach is rooted in blue-chip experience.
BESPOKE BUSINESS SIMULATIONS
Custom Designed Business Simulations mimic the way the business should be managed in executing the chosen strategy.
These simulations are rolled out across the business and ensure:
• Full alignment with the strategy
• Superior competence in managing the strategy
• Complete buy-in by all staff
• Fast and deep change
• Clear focus on delivering results
These critical interventions are custom designed and implemented for the client through a strategic partnership with BTS, a global provider of customized business simulations.
Global companies in the FORTUNE 500 and major South African companies have used BTS bespoke simulations to execute their business strategy with great success.
The current and future success of any business is directly driven by the quality of talent available at any one time to architect and execute a superior business strategy. This is why major global and South African companies view talent management as a business imperative. Companies such as Standard Bank, Boeing, GE and the like focus executive attention on identifying, managing and developing high potentials.
PenLion has considerable corporate experience in talent management and is able to make this available to clients in either a lean impactful form or in comprehensive form in alliance with a network of business partners spanning the many fields of expertise involved from psychometrics to coaching to performance management to accelerated development.
PenLion is also able to provide supporting world-class software support through its business alliance with StepStone South Africa.
New generation leaders need to have superior strategic networking skills to execute business strategy. Indeed research has demonstrated that those with larger and more diverse social networks make for more effective leaders. PenLion offers a unique workshop which teaches leaders the art and science of networking. The workshop also provides practical tools for the participants to identify and analyse their prevailing social network after which action plans are drawn up to direct future networking activities. This workshop was pioneered by Mike in his GIBS executive programme and has been proven in assignments with innovative clients including a global consultancy. These workshops are tailored to meet the networking needs of the client.
