About Leadenhall Consulting
Leadenhall Consulting was founded in 2011 to provide Executive Coaching, Learning & Development services and HR Consulting to firms in the City of London – taking its name from Leadenhall Market a place for commerce and trading built on the site of the original London Roman Forum.
Initially working with insurers, brokers, and fund managers, Leadenhall Consulting has grown and now has an impressive client base across corporates, public sector and not-for-profit organisations operating in the UK, Europe, US, Middle East, Asia and Australia. The common theme is all face challenges of building innovation and entrepreneurship into their people practices whilst still delivering in the highly regulated world.
It is essential that there is a meeting of minds between all parties before a piece of work is undertaken.
We work with you to understand your requirements and to identify what is right for your organisation.
We are proponents of the potent combination of ‘heart’ and ‘head’. ‘Gut feel’ and intuition are best combined with information and data from well-researched instruments or thoughtfully collected feedback.
We have worked at Board level, know what is required to succeed at senior levels within organisations and we do the work ourselves. We do not delegate to less experienced team members. We tailor our solutions to meet your needs.
Our approach is to ensure that all stakeholders are involved and committed to a project from the drawing board to completion, giving collective visibility to the progress and enduring impact of the partnership. We listen; it’s important to understand how you operate and what you are seeking to achieve. We agree together the intervention that is likely to be most effective and design an approach that stakeholders can embrace. We then set about delivering the agreed initiative in an engaging and timely way and embed the initiative with you through focused participation and engagement. Finally, we review and vigorously evaluate the project to ensure that objectives have been met and a return on investment achieved.
Our measure of success is to become your trusted partner.
Use of Psychometrics, 360 Degree instruments and Surveys
We use a range of tools to support our work and have been innovative in our approach. Psychometrics, surveys and other data collection methodologies are used to gather data to underpin our projects.
We are trained to use a range of instruments including the Hogan suite for leadership assessment and development; the SHL range of ability tests and personality profiles; DiSC; Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team; Lumina Spark; Insights; Ashridge 360; FIRO-B and MBTI Step I and II.
We have developed leadership competency frameworks that can be mapped to Hogan and to a 360° feedback tool and we can create bespoke competency frameworks for specific functions. A recent addition to our portfolio of psychometric instruments, and one which we had a hand in developing, is the HPTI (High Potential Type Indicator) developed by Professor Adrian Furnham and Ian MacRae and based on their book ‘High Potential – How to Spot, Manage and Develop Talented People at Work’.
