We’re experts at delivering improved business performance. Don’t just take our word for it though. Here’s what some of our clients say about us…
Guy Munnoch – CEO, Zurich Financial Services
“I have employed Quest Leadership regularly since 1998; initially in my capacity as Head of Claims; then Managing Director of a subsidiary of Zurich Financial Services; and, finally, in my two most recent appointments as CEO of Zurich Financial Services UK and CEO of Zurich Financial Services Southern Africa.
The reason for my continuing support of Quest Leadership over the past 14 years is their ability to deliver results. Regardless of the prevailing business and market conditions or cultural environment, they are exceptional at being able to understand what needs to be done and the interventions required to make a difference.
They are very experienced at working with executive teams both on a collective and individual basis. They adapt well to the typical challenges that face businesses and I have used them in various scenarios from a major structural change involving significant downsizing; through an operational crisis to, most recently, the handling of an exciting growth phase.Of note, is their ability to operate well in a multi-cultural environment. This was demonstrated particularly well during my most recent role in South Africa. Spanning several, very diverse cultures, Quest Leadership skillfully and sensitively created an environment where all the key issues could be aired and debated.
Finally, I have been particularly impressed by the way that Quest Leadership adapts its approach between the executive team and the lower leadership levels. Taking the executive teams strategic ambitions as the baseline they help the business to create an array of focused, operational goals, which are then developed and owned by each individual. They build a real sense of execution at all levels within the firm and demonstrate that the business can only deliver results when the organisation is operating as a collective and cohesive entity.
I unreservedly recommend Quest Leadership.”
Rod Yeo – HR Director Hexagon Mining
“A big thank you from me and the global leadership team for your contributions during 2012. It has been a year since you first delivered the Leadership Challenge at the Gold Coast.
We have come along way since then. The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership and the Ten Commitments of Leadership has become a major part of our leadership practice and has contributed positively to the culture of our business. During the leadership sessions, your ability to go below the surface and challenge us was key to breaking away from some of our previous management paradigms. Chris we look forward to working with you again in the near future.”
Mark Concannon – President EMEA, Leica Geosystems
“The leadership development and facilitation provided by Quest Leadership achieved exactly what we hoped to achieve. Our leadership teams now have a solid understanding of what leadership is and what they need to do differently to be effective leaders. Quest’s unique approach to developing leadership went beyond the teaching of contemporary leadership concepts. Quest quickly built trust with our leadership teams and was able to challenge their behaviours on both an individual and team level.
Ian Farquhar – Managing Director, David Brown
“I would whole-heartedly recommend Quest Leadership to anyone looking for a catalytic effect in their leadership effectiveness and business performance. Quest Leadership has enabled me to transform numerous leadership teams across engineering businesses I have worked in throughout my career. Quest’s unique approach tailors leadership and transformation practices to your specific business circumstances and needs. They are true professionals, focused on outcomes, and achieve success by helping good people to become great. Their passion for this work is reflected by the inspirational environment they create in their workshops and activities.
Beyond the transformational effect created in my teams, Quest has provided invaluable personal leadership coaching as I have progressed to larger, more diverse international teams and challenges.Quest is the ideal partner for those executive leaders wanting to unlock the hidden potential of their leaders and teams.”
