Our Consultancy Offering

Clients tell us that we stand out when compared to other providers of performance management software due to our unique suite of Actus Consultancy and Learning services. We offer wrap-around consultancy and training to those deploying our Software or as independent expertise. Our Consultancy services support clients every step of the way, whether they are embarking on a large scale cultural transformation project, developing an O.D. Strategy or simply looking to move their existing appraisal process online. We also offer ‘off the shelf’ training courses directly for line managers or through bespoke design and rolled out as part of a ‘train the trainer’ programme.

Creating a better workplace for people

Our CEO, Lucinda Carney, has a passion for ‘making a difference’ with clients and where possible, she personally supports those who want Board Facilitation or Change Consultancy. Her mission also extends to supporting the wider community, which is why she runs a weekly podcast – The HR Uprising Podcast and facilitates an aligned people professionals LinkedIn Community Group which you are welcome to join!

Actus Consultancy Services

Our most requested consultancy offerings are also outlined below but we do understand that every client’s needs are different so please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss your specific challenge.

360 feedback and coaching

360 feedback is a really powerful development tool, we offer it as part of our management and change training courses and can also offer individual or group 360 services as part of a managed service offering. Having obtained the 360 report, what really matters is the way in which the feedback is interpreted and incorporated into an individual’s development plan which can be supported by one of our qualified coaches.

Organisational Development Strategy

As people professionals, we need to have a credible vision and strategy that is aligned with the needs of the business. Sometimes this is difficult to do ourselves so this session includes a half day diagnostic and results in a ‘Strategy on a Page’ outcome that will help you clearly communicate your vision to the business and gain buy-in.

Establishing Board Vision and Goals

It is remarkable how often we work with clients who want everyone to have clear goals and objectives, yet they haven’t set or agreed on any at the top. This is by far and away our most frequently requested board coaching session. It requires the top team to get around the table for at least 4 hours with flip charts, post-it notes and a highly flexible facilitator. The resulting clarity and focus benefit the whole organisation, top-down.

Business Psychology Services

We offer a range of evidence-based business psychology services that can support you with this. These range from Competency or 360 questionnaire development; personality diagnostics and conflict resolution to assessment for development services and much more.

Business Healthcheck

Effective members of the #HRUprising need to understand the strengths and development requirements of their organisations in order to prioritise areas for change and investment. The Business Healthcheck provides personalised analysis and consultancy that will give clarity about ‘As is’ and enable you to measure progress towards the ‘To be’. The outputs of the Healthcheck are written up in a report with specific guidance and recommendations for next steps.

Appraisal process re-design

Of course we help with this! Most organisations invest in an online appraisal system in order to deliver some kind of results. It could be to encourage greater performance, more meaningful conversations or more focus on behaviours. Our #HRUprising engagement consultants help every Actus client to align and configure Actus to match your cultural and strategic goals. We understand that these may evolve over time so are happy to work with your internal #HRChangeAgent to tweak along the way.

Balanced Scorecard Coaching

Many clients are starting to apply the Balanced Scorecard to their objective setting process, the idea is to align the organisation against more leading indicators than the traditional financial metrics that force us to purely look backwards. We coach boards and leaders to align and improve their objectives top-down.

Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching can be an invaluable way of ensuring that those in key roles have the self-awareness and personal skills to lead change and get the best out of their team.

“Become an HR Change Agent and join the HR Uprising to inspire, engage and accelerate positive change”. Lucinda Carney, Business Psychologist.
