Deloitte launches new leadership consulting practice

Press release

4 April 2016 - Deloitte NZ today announces the launch of a new leadership consulting practice.  This launch follows Deloitte UK’s recent acquisition of the business and assets of Kaisen Consulting Limited (“Kaisen”), a boutique leadership consultancy of business psychologists which has 25 years’ experience working with senior leaders in more than 40 countries.
 
The NZ Leadership practice will be led by Andy Clayton, a former Kaisen consultant. Combining Deloitte’s current leadership consulting research and experience with Kaisen’s market leading assessment methodology, IP, and tools, the new practice will target New Zealand’s leadership services market, estimated to be worth $150m a year.
 
Deloitte’s ambition is to become the leading provider of leadership services. The practice will offer Deloitte’s client base access to a full range of leadership services, including: unique assessment tools, such as in-depth psychological profiling; management development and leadership strategy.*
 
Hamish Wilson, head of Human Capital at Deloitte NZ, said: “Leadership is an issue at the top of the boardroom agenda.  Our research has shown that organisations with effective leaders are 2.3x more likely to financially outperform their competitors and yet leadership remains a pervasive concern.  Deloitte’s 2016 Human Capital Trends showed that nine in ten organizations cite leadership as one of their biggest challenges with only twelve percent of New Zealand and Australian companies believing that they have an “excellent” leadership pipeline.  It is clear that companies are struggling to attract, retain, and develop the leaders which will shape their future.  We are therefore very excited with the launch of this new practice area”
 
Note to Editors
*The new practice’s approach to leadership is a research based framework, which is founded on more than 20,000 leader psychological assessments, identifying the capabilities leaders need.
