Employees are at the heart of an organisation and when they excel, they are worth more than their weight in gold. Companies naturally want to hold onto them and we want to support you in making this happen.
We have lots of experience and expertise in the area of talent retention and we partner with you to create a strategy and set of solutions that tune in to your talent ‘pipeline’ and needs.
• Develop your line managers’ ‘will and skill’ so they can consistently facilitate powerful career conversations – by engaging with their team, playing to their strengths and creating compelling personal career paths. These conversations help your leaders and managers remain ‘current’ with all employees – minimising the likelihood of losing your best talent
• Design and implement Mentoring programmes to create a culture where individuals ‘own’ their careers and where Mentors provide support and help explore the individual’s next steps and development opportunities
As part of this work we support you to:
• Understand your succession challenges and risks
• Shape your talent and succession management strategy, framework and processes – resulting in clear action plans and ensuring you create and retain a quality bench of capability for both now and the future
“As a leader of the business, I have found it very useful to discuss thoughts and issues with my coach and obtain a different perspective from someone who has no knowledge of the organisation and a different business background. To be able to do this in an open and confidential way has been refreshing and enabled me to look at thinks differently and focus on some key issues.”Managing Director – Asset Finance Sector
“My CDS coach has helped me understand many issues that were affecting my work and personal life to the point now where I am much happier and delivering results I didn’t think were possible. She is practical and resourceful as well as caring and inspiring and I would, without hesitation, recommend her to help anyone who was looking for coach.”Senior Programme Manager – Energy Sector
“My CDS coach provided me with the opportunity to bounce ideas around, acting as an off-the-wall sparring partner to generate ideas which led to “eureka moments” post the session. I valued the confidential, independent, non-judgemental nature of the conversations.”Head of Technology – Finance Sector
