Built around you and your team.
What we do together depends on the particular challenges you face, the results you are aiming for and where you are starting from. Here is a summary of the services we provide.
Growing the capability of individual executives to perform leadership roles with greater responsibility and increased complexity, whilst enhancing their own and their colleagues' well being and fulfilment.
We coach talented executives facing new leadership challenges such as a new role, increased responsibilities, transition from functional leader to general manager or leading major change.
We coach you to Look in and Look out. Looking in to your own values and motivation, then Looking out to consider how these influence your behaviour and impact. Challenging assumptions, encouraging creativity to grow your capabilities to lead in an increasingly complex, uncertain and ambiguous world.
Business leaders who work with us consistently exceed stakeholders' expectations. They demonstrate their ability to lead organisations that deliver exceptional results. They feedback that they have more sustainable energy levels and a stronger sense of well being and fulfilment.
"I gained a deeper appreciation of my own strengths and weaknesses and developed new leadership capabilities. The benefits have been evident, for the businesses in which I have worked, the people I have worked with and for me personally."

Leadership Team Effectiveness
We work with leaders who have bold ambitions for their businesses and recognise the need to raise the performance of their leadership team.
We coach teams to Look in and Look out. Looking in, becoming aware of their culture, their shared values, appreciating the team's strengths. Then Looking out, building a strong shared understanding of the impact they need to make with key stakeholders and a mutual sense of pride about what makes them and their organisation distinctive. We then coach them to translate their shared identity and commitment into results to consistently exceed stakeholders' expectations.
"We initially surfaced a good deal of disharmony and the Executive Team was only seen by members as a place to get resources. Team members' own departments were their identities. Now they are increasingly taking on cross-company responsibilities beyond their own functions. A year on we know this is a high-performance leadership team and we continue to set high standards for ourselves and our colleagues."

Post Merger Integration
Depending on whose research you reference, mergers have a failure rate of anywhere between 50 to 85 per cent. Challenges in integrating very different operating models and cultures are major causes of failure.
We work with the Leadership Team to create a cohesive, collaborative organisation that combines the strengths of both companies. We start by helping the team to gain a shared understanding of the critical challenges they face as a business. We then coach them to make the changes required to lead effectively together as 'one team'.
We then typically partner with the leadership team to facilitate workshops to engage their colleagues across the organisation to create a shared identity and shape how they will work together.
This approach is highly relevant where a company is merging two businesses or functions internally.
"The foundations we built working with Business Momentum enabled us to increase market share and sustain growth of 50% over the last two years."
Steve McCaffery, President, International Business Operations
To fulfil your aspirations for your business, you need to win the hearts and minds of employees. Engagement is about pride and passion in your work. It drives discretionary effort and performance. When your people are engaged they are highly enthusiastic and committed. But most employees are not engaged. In recent surveys, the global figure is 13%, UK less than 20% and in the US just over 30%.
We work with leaders to develop high levels of employee engagement which enables the company to achieve and sustain a reputation with all stakeholders, for success. Central to our approach is creating a shared sense of pride in the company, building on strengths and committing to clear expectations with colleagues and customers about how they work together. Our approach develops the capability and commitment of leaders and managers to create the conditions across the business in which employees are fully engaged.
"Working with Business Momentum, the OD Team exceeded all expectations. We flawlessly implemented the biggest change programme this company has ever taken on whilst we increased performance at the same time."
