Coaching | Team Growth | Workforce Strategy

Skills are at a premium and we now need to look at the people inside our own organisations in order build capability. Quintessential works with you to grow and upskill your workforce.

We do this by working at an individual, team and organisation level, creating workforce strategies and competency frameworks in order to sustainable grow and evolve your people.

Our methods identify the current and future workforce needs of your business, ensuring that you have a steady pipeline of talent aligned to your growth needs, and supporting you to have the headspace to critically think through the problems and opportunities as they emerge.

Coaching

Today’s problems are different from those in the past. They are more complex, constantly changing and unpredictable, therefore solving them requires new approaches, new thinking and new ways of working.

At Quintessential, we leverage the power of co-creation through the coaching approach, where we solve problems together so that you and your team are an integral part of the process and you own the solution.

This results in more determination to turn your resolutions into reality. It enables the changes you desire to greater chance of enduring.

Team Growth

Teamwork is more important than ever before in this interconnected world. We are co-dependent and we rely on each other to work together in order to contribute efficiently to the organisation.

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” Henry Ford

Quintessential helps people to work better together, from Executive Leadership Teams to newly formed teams. Rather than ‘fix’ things, we focus on building the skills that enable people with a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, opinions and thoughts to leverage their differences as a strength. We seek to appreciate the different ways we look at things, and help teams to work with conflict and navigate uncertainty in order to make more effective decisions.

Workforce Strategy

Building capable workforces is a long game.

Quintessential works with you to create enduring strategies that define your ongoing workforce needs, aligning them to your current and stretch business aspirations. We accomplish this by adopting a dual focus:

  • Competency = Knowledge + Skills + Behaviours

A holistic approach to all the abilities and aptitudes that we bring, rather than a singular emphasis on grades and qualifications.

  • A Learning focus instead of Training

Acknowledging and applying the 70/20/10 rule, in that our learning is through doing and experiencing, not only through training.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin

Testimonials

I have known Pat for approximately 20 years, initially meeting when working at Boeing, then moving to Eurocopter and staying in contact ever since. I
have found Pat to be one of those rare individuals who uses a personal touch to achieve technical outcomes. Pat’s strengths lay in his broad technical background and experience, coupled with genuine empathy and ability to develop high-performing teams.

Andrew, Head of Customer Support, Airbus Asia Pacific

I recently worked closely with Patrick during the development and delivery of the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) funded Australia Awards Fellowship Program entitled, ‘Responding to Skilled Worker Demand: Improving Quality, Leadership and Management of TVET’ in Vietnam. Throughout the delivery of this Fellowship Program Patrick was responsible for facilitating training activities in the areas of transformational leadership, personal leadership, leading teams, project management and change management. Patrick did an outstanding job in this position demonstrating his agility in effectively and efficiently responding to emerging challenges as well as contextualizing training content to meet the needs of his audience, in this case senior leaders from Vietnam’s Ministry of Construction.

Since mid 2014, Patrick’s coaching has helped me define and develop a values based approach to my career.

This action and feedback loop is the most powerful and effective professional development work I have done to date.
