Take the Guesswork out of Talent Identification and
Develop Leaders’ Adaptive Expertise

By objectively and quantifiably testing and identifying the High Potential Talent as opposed to today’s High Performers. Accelerate the development of the High Potentials Adaptive Expertise to manage rapid change, complexity and ambiguity in the business world.

Our approach is to enable your Talent to ‘Think Differently’, ‘Act Differently (Repeatedly)’ and ‘Develop New Behavioral Brain Habits’ resulting in a transformational approach to managing Talent and developing Adaptive Expertise.



The Current Performance of an executive is based on their ‘Routine Expertise’ which is underpinned by their domain knowledge or their Crystallized Intelligence. However, just relying on ‘Routine Expertise’ has a hidden downside as Routine Experts tend to overly rely on their past experience when solving problems. In addition, Routine Experts can often fail to identify that the context is considerably different when solving a problem to what they have experienced in the past – this can be catastrophic in a VUCA business environment.

By contrast, the Future Potential of an executive is based on their ‘Adaptive Expertise’ that is underpinned by their Fluid Intelligence ‘the ability to think and reason abstractly and solve problems, particularly new/novel problems’ CHC Theory of human cognitive abilities.

So in order to significantly improve the accuracy of identifying High Potentials, and their potential to undertake larger and more complex executive roles, it is necessary to focus on their inherent Adaptive Expertise, and not just their Routine Expertise.
