The 5%

System shocks and structural changes are transforming the way we live, work and relate. Over the last 2 years, we have seen the rule book ripped up, systems dismantled, and change forced on organisations as a result of the COVID Pandemic, geopolitical change and the unprecedented rate and scale of disruption.

Businesses have been challenged, people put under pressure, and business models pushed to the brink of collapse. As a result, leaders are under more pressure than ever before. Pressure to navigate the new world, make sense of disruption, create strategies to succeed, and implement tactics to perform.

That creates a problem for businesses across Australia as only 5% of leaders have the ability to catalyse and lead transformational change. The result is a ticking timebomb that should concern us all because businesses that cannot adapt, change or come to terms with the new normal will not survive; the reality is that stark.

But we don’t need to panic, the ticking time bomb can be defused. Businesses can come out of the other side of disruption, and a new generation of leaders can be developed who have the skills required to lead organisations through change and to long-term success.

BEyond Excellence helps to foster the most critical attributes associated with leaders. We work with you to unpack complex challenges, design and redefine opportunity, understand impacts and implement action. We give you the skills, knowledge, and confidence to be one of the 5% and prepare you to lead in the changed world.

We focus on the key attributes that define success in modern leadership, with far less importance placed on command and control and greater emphasis on translation, preparation, management, simplification, navigation, and sensemaking.

The result is powerful as a cohort of leaders are created who are technically excellent in their field and are armed with the softer skills required to understand the new world, learn from insights, adapt to change, and create a coalition of the willing committed to transformation.
