People and Change
Empower people to be your differentiator
In the face of a volatile economic climate, global competition and constant change, companies are looking for ways to differentiate themselves. The companies that thrive understand that great talent is essential to success.
North Highland believes that businesses made up of people with the right blend of capabilities and conviction can do amazing things. Let us help you perfect your organization, stimulate talent potential and inspire change.
How We Can Help
Organizational Strategy and Design
Leaders must be able to adapt the organizational model to keep pace with the speed of innovation and operations. Applying agile principles and a “design to learn and adapt” philosophy, our organizational design approach enables greater adaptability in response to changes in technology, strategy, and regulatory requirements.
Change is the new normal, but unfortunately, so is the failure of most change initiatives. So why take the same old approach? We help demystify how to make change happen on the ground, applying logic and creativity. Whatever the nature of your change initiative, we can help you inspire change, engage your people, and accelerate business results.
North Highland is an authorized Prosci training provider, helping organizations build internal change management capabilities.
Talent Strategy and Development
Talent is an organization’s single largest expenditure and most defining asset. High-performing businesses are rethinking their attitudes and actions on managing their talent. We help our clients improve how they plan, source, attract, engage, develop, reward, and mobilize their employees and leaders.
Building Resilience from Disruption
We partnered with Harvard Business Review Analytic Services to find out how organizations around the world and in a variety of sectors are addressing the reality of continuous change, interviewing executives from multiple sectors who are intimately involved with their organization’s efforts to promote resilience.
Using Neuroscience to Get Your Change Effort Off the Ground
Organizational change has a reputation for being painful and often unsuccessful. However, it doesn't have to be that way. Structuring your change efforts using what we know about how people actually think will make change easier and adoption more likely. When you do so, your change plan will probably look different and work better.
Disruptive Change - All About the Business
During disruptive changes in an organization, HR professionals and consultants often talk about “managing change,” “dealing with resistance,” and “gaining buy-in.” As a business leader, though, your job is delivering business results. Dealing with change, resistance and buy-in are means to that end.
