Building Barclays' Next Generation of Leaders
At Potentialife, we help organizations deliver their leadership strategies by driving the development of peak performance behaviors in their employees. By combining the latest research in positive psychology, the science of behavioral change and a data driven technology platform, we have created a truly innovative technology-enabled process for scaling up the behaviors that will allow your organization to win in a constantly changing world. Through a multi month process, program participants undertake a carefully orchestrated series of behavioral experiments. These experiments allow them to trial, practice and ritualize the daily behaviors that reflect the most productive, resilient and agile leaders of today.
Angus’ interest in leadership came from his astonishment at the diversity of leadership profiles he saw in clients and colleagues during his 20 year career in management consulting. At McKinsey & Company, he both led the Strategy Practice in Europe, Middle East and Africa, overseeing the work of over 1,000 colleagues, as well the Firm’s Partner Leadership Development function globally, where he helped to design and implement intervention programs to foster the development of leadership behaviors of 1500 fellow Firm Partners.
