Leadership and Transition
We help to navigate talented people through organisations, to ensure they have the greatest positive impact. We call this ‘right time, right table, right talent.’
Placing leaders at the heart of rapid transformation and giving them the support, strategies and tools to thrive is at the core of CogNative’s Leadership and Coaching Business. By understanding the flow of people, skills, mindsets and capabilities in a rapidly changing landscape, we help position individuals to achieve their greatest success, in work and life, and everything in-between.
Executive Mental Health
Helping leaders balance high pressure and high performance.
COVID-19 has put mental health leadership on the agenda for boards and the executive like never before. Employee mental health must be a key component of organisational strategy. For decades we have worked with senior leaders at the coalface of change. We understand the pressures and challenges faced at an executive level in fast-paced, high-performance environments, and we have a solution.

We utilise a range of selection tools to ensure we are best positioned to answer demands for well-matched future leaders. Future-facing indicators provide insight into skills, mindset, agility, diversity, values alignment and purpose.
Effective leadership requires self-awareness – the accurate recognition of one’s leadership skills and developmental gaps. Leadership development assessment tools highlight these gaps, enabling leaders to identify their strengths and to build on these for accelerated performance and unique leadership impact.
Successful teams understand the benefits of cognitive diversity, utilising a variety of skills and perspectives enabled by diversity of thought. Team assessments provide the ability to build better relationships and understanding between colleagues and team members — helping them see how to best work together and become more productive.
360 degree feedback allows individuals to understand how their effectiveness as an employee or coworker is interpreted by others. Largely based on visible and inherent behaviors, the feedback provides insight into the skills and behavioral alignment between organisation and individual, as well as clear development requirements.
