Culture is the universal conductor for leadership, team performance and organisational success. Consulting frameworks provide the architecture for conducive sustainable values-driven culture.
Capability is the talent that leaders walk in the door with, combining innate faculties and learnt experiences. We ensure you attract and engage the capabilities your organisation requires to succeed.
Behaviours are the medium through which leadership impacts are felt, either inspiring and engaging or disrupting and diminishing organisations goals. Coaching enables optimal leadership behaviour.
Knowledge is the dance partner of change, requiring continual update, revision and enhancement. Our leadership courses keep you on your toes, informed and developing with or ahead of shifting leadership demands.
Clarity provides confidence that decisions related to leadership are verified, measurable and accessible over time allowing any investment in this area to be.

Where to begin?
We take the time to understand your context, the particular issues that you face today, and anticipate in the future. We apply our model to these specific criteria in order to best serve you.
No ‘cookie cutters’ here.
The first step is for us to listen, ask questions and allow you to explore the opportunities you wish to create.
We can then establish and verify your challenges with data, seek out the causal factors and identify the fastest uplift opportunities. From here, we design and embed, in collaboration with you, a platform for ongoing success, using only the interventions from our model which will deliver the highest return on your investment.Enquire
PCS (Performance Client System) is a unique team and leadership capability alignment tool. PCS works by focusing on leadership and team performance assessed across 6 areas. PCS has demonstrated that culture at a team level (referred to as Climate) is the most significant influence on organisational performance, and that leadership is the greatest influence on team culture.
PCS has been developed and researched over 15 years and used over 25,000 times in 20 countries. The models driving the tool are Tuckman’s Stages of Team Formation and Kirkman’s Modes of Conflict. In Australia, the 4iGroup is one of the first organisations to be certified to deploy PCS.
PCS provides an objective & independent measure of effectiveness and alignment between the leader and their team. It provides a clear roadmap for enhancing leader and team performance. Priority development areas can be easily identified, and appropriate focus and actions applied. PCS is a highly visual tool and is a powerful engagement framework to measure performance improvement over time.
PCS can be used alongside individual personality surveys, as well as in a stand-alone mode on team performance. After the initial survey, the organisation can work with the team leader with external support as needed to activate their own and the team’s development, either through capability development or culture enhancement.Enquire
4iGroup consultants are well versed in observation studies that may also include combined survey, and interviews as well as analysis of team behaviours.
We undertake an assessment of underlying performance activators/obstacles within a team or organisation-wide and then report outcomes and potential solutions.
The overview of such an engagement may include some or all of the following; Multi-modal deployment, combining tailored surveys, one-on-one interview and extensive observation of the team or whole organisation interacting together in BAU, inter-function meetings and cross-function meetings/interactions. There may be a focus on Head of function, key leaders within the group and a sample of the population of the group at all levels.
Anticipated Outcomes should be the identification of underlying issues, prioritisation of these, recommendation for solutions to overcome obstacles and enable performance activators. Potential solutions (to be potentially provided supplementary to this program) include coaching to activate new behaviours, assessments to provide further data if required around strengths & development areas (e.g. Clifton Strengths Finder, MSCEIT EQ Assessment), specific training if required (e.g. improve EQ), re-design of roles to better fit strengths, re-deployment into changed roles if required, replacement of personal if required.Enquire

This work establishes an indicative baseline for team and organisational ROI. We focus on the following area.
Working on behalf of and in conjunction with the leadership team or the Board, we leverage the 4i Clarity practice to first provide a data set for the current organisational culture context, performance enablers and causal roots of cultural based performance restraints. This baseline highlights both risks and development opportunities. We then work in a hands-on, immersive way throughout the organisation developing frameworks for values, behaviours and accountability to provide a sustainable promotable culture.
