Where is your twisted needle?

A metaphor for leadership coaching and self-development

Ever thought of piloting your impact on others as if you were in the cockpit of an old jetliner? It’s a metaphor I sometimes use when coaching leaders at many levels – and it’s proven effective in its simplicity. Enjoy!

Yet, they should also prioritize the re-engagement of their workforce. We explore this in the attached memo, and outline how you could deal with it and how we could help.

Resilient Leadership for the Stay-at-Home era and beyond

Some insights into the challenges that leaders and employees experience when navigating lockdown

Leaders need to find their footing in the uncharted situation we are going through. We found that they are encountering similar experiences and challenges, regardless of their seniority. As we helped them identify possible solutions, we compiled them in the attached document, and gladly share the learning!

In the past couple of weeks, we had many conversations and coaching sessions with leaders and professionals, from all over Europe and the Middle East. We discussed how they experience the current situation and found similarities in their challenges and possible solutions. We share our learnings in the attached document.

We hope you will enjoy these insights and benefit from them – individually, or by using them to trigger great conversations with your teams or in your households.

Let us have your comments!

In memoriam Arnot Venter

We are extremely sad to share that our colleague Arnót has passed away in the first weeks of January 2017. He had joined our network recently and was already much appreciated for his depth of insight, but also for his kindness and generosity of ideas.


We will miss a delightful colleague and human being.

The Talent Alliance releases its proprietary 360° survey

Modular tool enables the right mix of flexibility and precision, up to subtle top leadership behaviours


Feedback from colleagues and team members is a foundation for self-awareness.  The richest way to collect such feedback is through individual interviews. Yet, in some cases, on-line 360° surveys can represent a cost-effective alternative.    The Talent Alliance offers a flexible solution for discerning users.


Finding a 360° tool that meets all the right criteria can be frustratingly difficult.  Discerning users require simplicity, multi-language capability, and last but not least, a set of questions that goes beyond the usual “junior and middle management” stuff to cover the subtle leadership skills required from senior executive.


To answer these needs, we have built a modular tool based on a dictionary of 30 capabilities. For each capability, you choose between a fine level of detail, a single overall “headline question”, or no question at all if the competency is not relevant to your needs.    The tool is already available in several languages and can be deployed in a matter of days.
