ABOUT THE CONFIDANT GROUP ASSOCIATE

The CONFIDANT Group associate is a management and organisation development professional. The primary objective of the Associate is to build relationships at executive level and promote The CONFIDANT Group solution to the challenge of executing the business plan.

The solution entails empowering the client’s managers to build the capacity necessary to achieve sustainable growth.

The Associate’s consulting and training vehicle is the Predictive Index system and methodology developed by Arnold Daniels in 1955 and which is currently, in 2014, used by over 8000 clients in more than 140 countries.

In the course of interacting with clients the Associate will draw on Predictive Index based expertise. The PI provides the “How” to proven management theories and practices.
This broader framework of management theory and proven practices include:

  • The concept of “talent” and how it facilitates effective management as researched by the Gallup Organisation and discussed in “First Break All The Rules” by Buckingham and Coffman
  • Peter Drucker’s management guidelines which include:
    • “Good organisation structures do not just evolve – they are developed”
    • “The manager is the dynamic of the organization”
    • “Management is the ability to convert the effort of people into performance”
    • “Management by objectives”
  • Richard Beckhard’s definition of organisation development:
    • “Organization development is an effort (1) planned, (2) organization-wide, and (3) managed from the top, to (4) increase organization effectiveness and health through (5) planned interventions in the organization’s “processes,” using behavioural-science knowledge.”
  • The proven value of a culture that reinforces the emphasis on talent development and retention, and performance management as applied by General Electric and succinctly described in Chapter 11 of “Jack”, written by Jack Welch.
  • The essential skill of “developing measureable outputs required at enterprise, unit and individual level” which managers and consultants need to master.
