Leadership Transition

Placing leadership at the heart of rapid transformation.

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. Our experienced strategists interpret the discourse surrounding the ‘Future of Work’ in a way that allows executives to anticipate the challenges, embrace the behaviours and design strategies resilient to rapid change. By working from the inside out, we enable leaders to connect purpose to strategy.

Be your difference. Own your journey.

Times of change can catapult us into being more true to ourselves. In a world where routine is becoming obsolete, BAU is high risk and life-long learning is key to success, getting comfortable being uncomfortable is the new pre-requisite of leadership.

Your greatest asset? Yourself. Agency within change allows opportunity within disruption. Invest in our high calibre individual coaching and transition programs. Fisher Leadership strives to unleash the potential of leaders embracing new ways of working. Whether that be achieving an optimal balance of next-phase learning or re skilling, cultivating a more adaptive mindset or strategically transitioning a career. Whether moving into board roles, or wanting to develop a portfolio career, we are changing the way people work, by understanding the why people work.

Change takes courage – we can help.

Whether you need to move on because of a restructure or feel it’s time to set your focus on the next career goals, the transitional process is always challenging. Developing the right strategy to achieve the next step in your career requires pragmatic advice and objective guidance. Rely on our transition team to help you work through and assess your choices and options before making a career change. We will listen, understand your needs and support you to develop a flexible, cost-effective approach that works. Below is a dynamic range of programs currently on offer.

We believe change is inevitable, but growth is optional. In growing your leaders, transitioning your people and empowering your future workforce, our CogNative advisors first understand the ‘why’ in order to understand the ‘way’. Our coaching programs remove corporate language and deconstruct power dynamics to tap into the ‘leader within the leader’ and connect purpose to strategy.
  • Adaptive Leadership

    Disruption presents the choice between opportunity and obsolescence. We coach leaders to deal with consequential changes and ambiguous options, when no clear answers are forthcoming. Learn to anticipate and position ahead of change, with clear strategy and purpose.

Leadership Development

We believe that individual, team and organisational talent cannot be viewed in isolation and instead is better optimised via a ‘mixtocracy lens.’ Fisher Leadership consultants are trained to read the overall ‘mix’ of clusters of talent to enable better decision-making and avoid groupthink. Our approach to developing talent is rigorous, structured and comprehensive. We assess internal talent for performance against their current role. We then map talent to future work opportunities in the context of organisational strategy and planning.
  • Goal Setting

    We believe that Goal Setting for future ready leaders requires a constant lens on shifting commercial, political and social contexts. Our experienced business consultants help leaders define vision, establish benchmarks and achieve successful outcomes and stay ahead of the game.

Leadership Transition Case Study

Following the design of a unique people strategy for a large association merging state chapters into one organisation, the HR Executive identified the desire to receive ongoing coaching. Assistance was sought to navigate toxic politics at the Senior Executive level and what amounted to bullying.

The CogNative advisor helped the HR Executive through the process of exiting an untenable position within the organisation in a strategic and professional manner without risking her professional reputation. Following the success of this collaborative strategy, the specialist was then asked initially to provide the client with professional counselling support to enable reflection. The process facilitated recovery from an experience that threatened the client’s confidence and wellbeing.

The specialist was then asked to provide career coaching services, which helped the client find the next Senior HR role.

The deep and trusted relationship formed with the CogNative advisor allowed the client to move from a negative space through a reflective learning phase and into empowerment. The objective interpretation of events, coupled with the empathy of the coach provided space to tackle multiple aspects of the journey, from emotional patterns, to behavioural change, career goals and deeper purpose.

Gabriel and the team genuinely understand the complexities and challenges leaders face in business environments…I didn’t have to waste time explaining context!
