How our first international licensee, a consultant in South Africa, is creating world-class teams, and what that means for you.
Since the launch of Perfect Teams in 2014, we have been primarily focused on delivering for our clients- supporting organisations to build world-class teams.
While our application has been used by leading companies across 30 countries to date, our goal is to support organisations from every country in the world by 2024.
Coupled with this, the pandemic, changing dynamics around team management, and the recent increasing numbers of self-employed consultants, has led to a number of conversations about our international expansion.
In this article, we highlight how our first international licensee is creating world-class teams utilising the Perfect Teams process and application.
This article will also identify the impact that she is already having, and what that means for her clients’ teams- and yours too.
A CONSULTANT LOOKING TO GROW HER BUSINESS AND ADD VALUE FOR HER CLIENTS
Following 15 years as an internal consultant at a large multi-national, our first international licensee, Erika Harley, based in South Africa, was in the early stages of growing her consultancy business.
With her company focusing on organisational development with particular focus on change management, business strategy and performance, she instantly saw the value of the Perfect Teams application.
Much like many of the consultants we are speaking to at the moment, Erika is looking to grow her business and provide added value for her clients.
YOUR PEOPLE, AND THEIR COMMUNICATION, SHOULD BE PRIORITIES:
Throughout her career, Erika understood that especially for scaling businesses, the people in their teams, and their communication, both need to be key priorities, alongside processes.
TWO EXAMPLES OF ORGANISATIONS NOW BUILDING BETTER, MORE PERFECT TEAMS:
Erika’s business is working with organisations of different sizes across many sectors. Below we have highlighted two examples of how she has been able to support her clients to build their world-class teams.
HOW ELSE HAVE ERIKA’S CLIENTS BENEFITED, AND HOW HAS HER BUSINESS BEEN IMPACTED?
In addition to the cases above, there have been further benefits for Erika’s clients, and her business has benefited too, because of the added value she is providing.
1) What additional value have her clients seen?
We have previously commented on the importance of improving on psychological theory from the 1900s, and it is likely that you will have heard of (or even used) the other, established profiling tools on the market.
Like many of our clients, one of the people working with Erika was initially apprehensive about the Perfect Teams profiling tool, because he had previously been profiled using other tools.
Following his experience of the Perfect Teams profiling tool though, he commented about how much better he found the experience, how much simpler the outputs were, and that he had a plan for what to do following the workshop.
2) What has been the impact on Erika’s business?
Turning to the impact that Perfect Teams has had on her business, Erika told us that she has been able to offer it to every client,
so they get additional value from her services.
Looking at the financial returns too, she told us that despite the pandemic slowing down the sector during 2021, her business is on track to achieve- and likely exceed- a 200%-300% return on investment within the first 18 months-2 years of incorporating Perfect Teams into her business.
She also told us that based on the clients she is now working with, and others she is speaking to, that return on investment is on course to grow exponentially over the coming months and beyond.
