Headway will work with you and your team to help you augment, improve and accelerate your existing professional development approaches.
We offer the following professional services:
Headway can partner with you and your teams to co-create a clear and compelling bespoke organisational capability framework which is both measurable and enduring.
Every organisation is different so designing the right capability composition and profiles is critical to enabling continuous growth and development.
Our unique 3C approach leverages our existing Headway DNA Soft Skill development framework so a lot of the hard work is already done.
Headway will determine which courses provide the greatest benefit for the most people.
Expenditure on training and courses for your people can be a significant investment and it’s often difficult to justify a return on that investment. Compliance and technical training is fairly straight-forward but when it comes to soft skills development it can be a bit ‘hit & miss’.
Managers can now align the soft skills development needs of their people to the specific training courses available both internally and from your training providers. This not only helps to justify a return on investment but also consolidates training needs across the organisation so that you can better leverage your training providers.
Headway can help you connect staff who seek development in one skill, with their peers who have that skill; and are willing to share it with their colleagues.
Professional coaching delivers significant benefits to the organisation. Many organisations experience an increase in staff retention (59%), staff satisfaction (35%), staff morale (29%) and productivity (29%). Research also indicates that individuals who receive mentoring are more likely to receive promotion and advancement (35%).*
However, establishing a formal mentoring program is expensive and can be laborious, complicated and short-lived.
Create a sustainable, collaborative, supportive and cooperative culture where everyone is helping everyone else to be at their best.* Hegstad & Wentling, 2004
Headway can coach you on our Soft Skills Development Framework so that you in turn can coach and develop your own people.
Managers are busy people and responsible for the professional development of their people. Without a soft skills development framework managers often have to rely upon their own personal experiences and ‘gut feel’ to help their team.
This is not only time consuming but it also means that individuals are often left without a clear development roadmap.
Every individual receives a personalised 12-month development plan which can be aligned to their role requirements.
Headway can hep you identify high potential individuals who don’t stand out from the crowd.
There will be always be individuals whose talent and capability are obvious and these ‘high potentials’ are traditionally earmarked for special attention and rapid advancement. But how do you identify less obvious high potential individuals who do not currently stand out from the crowd - the hidden gems - and those that need extra attention - the diamonds in the rough?
Headway can help unearth these rare gems to ensure that they get the opportunity to shine. We do this by looking for:
Headway will engage with you and your candidate (or your recruiter) to understand the capability of candidates as well as define the complexity of the role.
Current recruitment practices are good at determining appropriate fit to culture (e.g. via psychometric profiling) and determining appropriate qualifications, knowledge and experience (e.g. via resume profiling). However determining appropriate level of capability is still largely based on gut-feel and the recruiter’s individual experience.
Now you can match Candidate Capability to Role Complexity and ensure that your soft skill requirements for the role are met.
We use the proprietary Headway ZONE mechanism to provide you with an easy-to-read report that tells you which candidates are “In the Zone”.
For organisations who have already invested in a capability development technology platform, we can help you ensure that you are not reinventing the wheel. If you are looking to leverage the unique Headway Capability Framework but integrate this information with your existing systems, our platform has been built for this and we can provide this service for you.
