Acumen Global Partners
Acumen Global Partners focuses on strategic alignment through building leadership capacity to model and lead organisational change. Acumen brings a whole system perspective whilst collaboratively working alongside you in response to current challenges and opportunities.Working extensively with executive teams, Acumen has found that a critical lever for organisational change and cultural transformation is the development of the leaders themselves – paying attention to their inner and outer game.Acumen operates in real time, working with the whole system (executive team, senior leaders, team leaders and other stakeholders) developing leaders who have the capacity to deliver on the organisation’s desired outcomes. Acumen’s role is to facilitate the learning of the leaders of the organisation – ultimately for the realisation of their potential and to the direct benefit of the business.Acumen meets leaders at their learning edge with a flexible approach. Each leader’s journey becomes a unique story in and of itself.
Acumen’s consultants have a rare capacity for creating high levels of personal trust and safety. This is achieved in both group and individual forums, which enables courageous conversations and fosters individual openness to grow and learn. Consistent outcomes for this approach include accessing the group’s collective intelligence, avoiding groupthink and harnessing the not so obvious points of leverage. Visit the Acumen Global Website
