Individual assessment

Self-awareness is a powerful leadership skill, and one that is highly correlated with leadership success and progression. Our Leadership Transition Profiling (LTP) process is designed to provoke deeper insights into oneself and one’s leadership journey. It is experienced as insightful, stretching, incisive and engaging. It comprises an in-depth half-day biographical interview combined with a few self-reflection tools. We strive to stretch people’s thinking around their leadership possibilities and how they can harness their skills and potential to make a broader impact.

…for development: Through this process we provide our clients with a richer picture of their talent and in what ways they can further develop and leverage people’s potential. We also help individual leaders create deeper insights to accelerate their success during important leadership transitions.

… for recruitment: We help clients in final stages of recruitment gain deeper insights into potential talent and ‘fit’ for a new role or organisation through LTPs for Recruitment. Through this engagement we help enrich the selection decision-making process, while creating an engaging and motivating career development experience for prospective candidates.

Executive coaching

Organisations are increasingly required to operate in fast-changing, disrupted environments, across geographical or virtual boundaries. This places the requirement for leaders to remain aware, thoughtful and agile in responding to change and ‘leading’ through change. All too often, we listen to our clients experience themselves as reactive and ‘not fully in control’. Our coaching engagement is geared at providing a stimulating, supportive yet stretching space for leaders to reflect, learn and align their focus and sense of purpose with deep impact in their role and organisation. Primarily future-focused, our coaches challenge, support and guide your leaders, yet also pull back at times, creating a safe space in which the individual can explore and grow to their utmost potential. We match the individual with a Baton&Baton coach depending on the skills and experience required and align the coaching goals with the line manager to ensure goals and results are clear, measurable and tracked.

Cross-business mentoring

While coaching offers a space for customised, facilitated and accelerated learning, we recognise that at times our clients want access to tangible experience or specific expertise - someone who has ‘done’ what they are trying to do and has ‘walked the path’, or simply someone who they can learn from. External mentoring offers a safe space for this in-depth development without the challenges often associated with internal mentoring, such as politics, sub-optimal matching of mentor to mentee, or availability, interest and skill of mentors. Our Baton&Baton mentors are selected based on their expertise and deep industry or geographical experience, as well as the passion for ‘giving something back’. We provide them with a consistent level of training and accreditation. Unlike many external mentoring programmes on the market, we create ‘skin in the game’ for our mentors through compensating them and through tracking their mentee’s progress against clear, measurable goals. We have created a high impact mentoring programme that we are currently piloting with clients aimed at delivering a powerful development experience for individuals, high business impact and accelerating succession readiness. In addition, we are finding that this new-to-market proposition is creating a strong vehicle for bringing the outside in and fostering innovation and diversity of thinking.

Team development

Just as in sports, businesses without a clear destination and alignment may leave teams feeling flat and lost. We create bespoke coaching solutions for teams seeking to raise their game, increase engagement and improve their overall effectiveness. In designing solutions we draw on a range of group activities such as workshops, feedback surveys and self-reflection exercises, to address the learning needs of the team and create a platform to mobilise their development. Our approach to facilitation is intuitive, focused, supportive yet challenging. We aim to create a stimulating space where the team can learn and grow, while improving their interpersonal relationships - on which success ultimately hinges.

Impact and change reviews

We use a variety of custom designed impact and change measurement tools. We place great significance on achieving results that are not only based on the experience and feedback of individuals, but also on objective, tangible data such as KPIs, attrition, promotion and performance data. Our main driver is to focus on enabling change that is real, relevant and sustained over time.

Baton&Baton are an essential partner for me in maximising the effectiveness of my leadership team. They do this by investing significant time to understand us as a client and then bringing to the table a powerful combination of world-class academic knowledge on leadership and talent management with an emotionally intelligent and practical approach to driving performance. Our team is stronger, more confident and more effective thanks to the outstanding professional support Baton&Baton provide.
