People Issues are Part of a Manager’s Lot

Managers frequently encounter issues with individuals or groups at work and want a realistic answer with the following qualities:

  • Solving the people issues;
  • Not having to wade through a list of documents or frequently asked questions to find an answer;
  • A personal answer which takes account of your organisation’s current and future context;
  • The ability to clarify the way forward and to become confident that the key points have been considered.

At the same time, a manager wants to be sure that he/she will receive advice which is:

  • Commercially and service focused;
  • Sound, independent advice which is not slanted by organisational politics;
  • An assurance that he/she is not being locked into a longer term advice service.

Even if you have an internal HR management team, sometimes, senior managers need to obtain advice in confidence from outside their organisation due to the sensitive nature of the issues.

If you need  answers and/or help, with the above qualities, to resolve personnel or hr management issues, contact us.

If you prefer, we will quote a fixed price for the work required.  You are not required to enter into a longer term commitment for the service.
