ATVantage’s Unique Approach:
First-Time-Right

It is our firm belief at ATVantage that First-Time-Right is possible when leaders are provided with expert support to prepare for and deliver on both the tangible and intangible elements of undertaking a professional transition. This is the basis of our dual approach bringing consulting and coaching together to deliver a holistic and comprehensive 360° approach to empower Executives to drive successful delivery, move towards higher performance and thereby establish their legacy and propel their career.

Equally, our experience allows us to design and/or deliver corporate transformations that meet their objectives by combining a compelling design with a realistic implementation approach and timeline.

ATVantage uses its D³ system to help clients to become clearer on their transformation or transition challenge ahead.

At the end of the discovery phase the Executive will have clarity on the main goals they want to achieve. Beyond this, the discovery phase aims to support the client in anticipating and therefore better preparing for challenges as well as identifying resources that can be leveraged for success

The Define phase leads to the First-Time-Right strategy on how to deliver the vision. Most importantly, this allows the client to define the critical path to success, the key stakeholders involved as well as the success metrics. From experience, the clearer and more holistic defined the strategy, the higher the chance of a First-Time-Right delivery and higher scores on success metrics
The Drive phase is all about turning plans into actions – depending on ATVantage’s role we will either lead the transformation having gone through the previous two stages with our clients or coach the Executive as they drive the actions themselves

Why is Transition / Transformation Leadership so important?

Transitions and transformations have always been part of business life and so has the delta between aspirations and results. For senior Executives stepping into a new role – especially when it includes the additional challenge of leading a corporate transformation – such a step-up can be a stepping-stone in their career … – or a deal-breaker.

In taking up a new role or transformational challenge, Executives are also faced with great pressure to deliver – especially as many argue that by setting ambitious targets, the “maximum possible” will be delivered even if it falls well short of the objectives stated at the beginning. In our experience, many Executives struggle to hit the ground running and maintain this pace in order to be able to deliver on their main KPIs and this comes at a great cost for both the companies and the leaders themselves.

In the majority of cases, the failure to deliver can be attributed to a lack of resources and support for the new leader. Too often, in their attempt to live up to expectations, newly promoted or hired leaders shy away from seeking the support needed to deliver on their goals. They lack a solid sparring partner to develop their strategy and implementation plan. Moreover, there is little mentoring available to enable them to further develop critical skills for their success and excelling in the new role or with the transformation they are appointed to lead.

And as new leaders find themselves in the spotlight there is simply no room for mistakes that could harm their credibility and their ability to drive new initiatives. This is the critical point in an Executive’s career where having a sparring partner like ATVantage is a guarantee towards a positive outcome: we offer a dual coaching-consulting approach and a one-stop-shop when it comes to Operational Excellence, Change Leadership, Strategic Planning, and critical skills’ enhancement.
