The behaviour of our leaders has changed permanently. They are actively requesting specific feedback in order to move their performance forward.

What’s on your talent agenda? We all know that your top talent is a vital source of competitive advantage. Having nurtured and invested in them to date they have been identified for their potential value to the company and likely are being prepared for a more senior role. They are clearly an asset to the company’s succession plan and future growth – but only if they are readying themselves for the future role – are we setting them up to ‘thrive’ in the conditions of the new role? Are we building character to deal with the increasing demands, expectations and challenges that they will face?

Having published his second book ‘Thrive: How To Achieve And Sustain High-Level Career Success’, Dean created his career mastery Talent Coaching Programme, practically applying theory to real-world career progression. With four quarterly interventions for those identified as the very top talent within your business, the programme covers areas such as ‘The Price of Entry’, ‘Engaging Upwards’, ‘Finding Cheerleaders’ and ‘Look and Act the Part’ from the patented ‘Career Annulus’ at the heart of the book. The programme has been highly acclaimed with business leaders noting that ‘Dean is very in tune with what organisations look for when developing their high potential senior leaders. He helps you understand and action what it takes to excel at the very top level’.

This engaging programme will challenge your top talent to ‘raise their capability’, achieve their maximum potential and enhance leadership skill in their current role, as well as explicitly introduce them to the behaviours, mind-set and skills associated with more senior roles within the business. This firm expectation setting creates aspiration and clearly aids potential succession planning within the business.

The programme can be tweaked to deliver against your specific ‘must gets’, although high level indicative content is as follows …

INTERVENTION 1 – THE PRICE OF ENTRY (1.5 day intervention)

  • What great looks like in Leadership - where are you right now?
  • Leadership core fundamentals – the 6 Leadership hats
