Professional Practices

Leadership and management development is a critical part of the success of any organisation where your profession determines your success.  Whether you are an architectural practice, a surveying firm, or an engineering consultancy, the key to achieving more than the sum of your parts is in orchestrating a well-led, efficiently managed organisation, rather than a rather disparate group of experts…

Your challenge may be…

  • How do you make your firm stand out in a crowded marketplace?
  • How to attract the best talent for your firm?
  • How to retain your best talent?
  • Keeping your fee earners at their peak of motivation.
  • You feel you cannot control or change the house style or modus  operandi among your fee earners.
  • Time is quite literally money – but you don’t really know how much time is being wasted?
  • Maximising fee-earning time while still hitting your growth, profit and cash targets
  • Thinking longer term and planning for succession…

What to do about it…

  • Define what your firm is really about.  What is your Vision, your Purpose, your Values ?
  • Develop a strong commercial strategy.
  • Involve all your key fee earners and partners.
  • Determine the standards you aspire to, and have a plan of how to achieve them with 100% consistency
  • Create a strong team environment where cooperation and sharing skills and expertise becomes the norm.
  • Create a performance & results culture.
  • Get the rewards package right for maintaining peak performance

How we can help…

  • Train your management team in performance management and give a performance focus.
  • Identify your firm’s USP and integrate this through all your business development activity.
