For years in the corporate world and today in my current consulting practice, my advice to bosses, peers, employees and clients is to be on the leading edge of CHANGE. Along with death and taxes it’s another constant and guarantee in life and business. We can choose to brace for it and break, or be flexible and not only go with it, but lead our own change. In life and business there are three phases of change or growth:
Dependent (Conformer)…Independent (Achiever)…Interdependent (Collaborator).
Over the past two years I have formed collaborative business alliances with a number of progressive companies (The Pulse Check, Miller Gleann Consulting, ABS Consulting and The Growth Coach). Now, I am once again delighted to be entering into yet another exciting and complimentary business partnership.
An underlying theme in my career, business and personal life has been to guide teams through incomprehension and adversity to understanding and success. I have also now discovered an even more direct and complementary avenue to leverage my passion for building strong and coherent teams in any organization.
Derhak Ireland & Partners are a group of exceptionally talented individuals aiming to continually achieve and maintain higher standards in the field of “teaming up” and connecting the right individual with the right organization. We aim to build, enhance and sustain organizations by securing for them exceptional talent suited to their needs, and we stand behind our promise like no one else (up to a 24 month guarantee). What captured my full attention when I was approached by Derhak Ireland was the methodology around the way the right people are connected with the right organizations …a combination of Science and Insight. The fact that each applicant must complete an “Ascentii Role Fit Behavioural and Job Match Assessment” combined with a 24 month retention rate of 97.6% for placed candidates (the highest in Canada) closed the deal for me. It is one thing to be able to separately measure experience, competence, personality and passion. However, the ability to coalesce the results of these measurements to uncover the right fit is what differentiates Derhak Ireland. A difference I strived to find during my corporate tenure.
My company, The Shifting Mindsets Consulting Alliance and I have partnered with Derhak Ireland because of my continuing quest to help organizations achieve and sustain their absolute highest level of performance and passion in order to achieve and sustain their absolute highest level of return and stakeholder value. There are many exceptional executives and managers out there but choosing the right fit for a particular organization is the value that Derhak Ireland’s clients have repeatedly come to witness and I am delighted to count myself in as a builder of and contributor to exceptional organizations of all kinds.
Who do you know that is stuck in that “RUT” phase? Are you taking hold and leading your business and life forward?
