The challenge: consistent
results through people
As every manager and employee knows, the
focus on people and performance flows with
the economic tide. In the good times a lot of
attention is paid to people and the importance
of good leadership in driving results.
In the bad times the pendulum swings to performance, often at any cost.
And when the good times return, organizations are left struggling to develop
strong leaders and re-engage those employees who haven’t already defected
to the competition.
Of course, first-rate companies know how to maintain a focus on driving results
through skilled leadership and engaged employees – during good times and bad.
They have learned, often the hard way, the link between people and performance,
and between leadership and results.

For a modest investment your organization
can also develop leaders who will drive
performance in any situation – crisis-resilient
managers and executives who engage the
emerging, cross-generational workforce and
collaborate across the growing ‘white space‘
of today’s more matrixed organizations.
Through one of Hay Group’s unique leadership programs, your managers and executives
will learn how their behavior impacts your organization’s bottom-line results and how,
by expanding their styles of leadership, they can more effectively capture the hearts and
minds of the workforce to help your organization achieve its strategy and financial goals.

Why Hay Group: research and
results, not mind-numbing concepts
Our approach to leadership is not based on
‘big ideas’, but on 60 years of research into
the links between motivation, behavior and
Through the assessment of thousands of managers and executives, and numerous
organizational studies, we can predict with a high level of accuracy how the motives
and behavior of leaders impact the environment in which employees work, and how
that climate in turn affects performance and leads to better business results.
Time and again, our research has shown that engaged employees outperform
their peers in less captivating environments by 15 to 30 per cent. They are more
productive, generate more revenue and ultimately create bigger profit margins.
Our approach: improving
behavior and business
results, one leader at a time
Our leadership programs are not the skills-
based training courses deployed by many of our
competitors. Rather, we focus on the behaviors
proven to be essential for good leadership –
in the context of specific roles, organizational
challenges and business situations.
These powerful developmental platforms are based on the ground-breaking work of
Drs. David McClelland, an early innovator in the theory of behavioral competencies
and their impact on performance in the workplace, and Daniel Goleman, pioneer in
the study of emotional intelligence (EI). Using a number of proprietary assessment
tools based on their research, Hay Group helps managers and executives explore their
individual strengths and weaknesses, and how they can better leverage the former
and overcome the latter.
Given the individual nature of our programs, we limit their size and provide a
minimum of two accredited facilitators / coaches who understand not only leadership
behavior, but also the intricacies and dynamics of organizations and business.
Participants leave with a better understanding of themselves and their leadership
abilities, and a plan for improving those abilities – a plan that is always in the context
of improving business results, given each person’s specific role and challenges.
