Our Approach

We are true catalysts and transformation agents by co-creating customized solutions, building capacity and change readiness and partnering on implementation and impact tracking.

Our approach is built on a deep foundation or corporate and consulting experience and is designed to create an enhanced capability for leaders; in which their strategic goals and business results are leveraged through a better understanding and application of people management frameworks, processes and skills.

With a track record spanning over more than 20 years, we are able to bring deep expertise to the table, not only in terms of our consulting ability, but also through our solid learning methodology that has been refined over the years based on our experience and successful project implementation across many clients.

  • Our consultants assist clients to clearly understand key people and performance issues within their business and we can  recommend and customize solutions based on best practice, critical thinking and a wealth of experience to deliver improved performance and results.
  • We perform detailed diagnoses and needs analysis to ensure that our clients are aware of key issues and so that we can design and implement effective targeted solutions.
  • All our consultants have extensive real world business & management experience and have all been involved in  major Change and OD projects and initiatives to improve business to improve business performance.

Catalyst is firmly committed to empowering clients  and building capacity within their organisations through a focus on sustainable mind-set, skills and behavior change delivered through highly interactive workshops with a strong emphasis on experiential learning. Workshops are designed to be practical and skills-development focused. Information sharing is complemented by practice sessions, case studies, role plays, personal reflection, identification of practice opportunities in the workplace and toolkits. Group learning and discussions are encouraged with feedback and coaching from the facilitators.

  • All learning modules are customized to the relevant organisational & leadership level. Catalyst has developed a unique organization levels framework (aligned to the leadership pipeline and levels of work) which we apply to a development of our programmes.
  • All our learning modules can be customized to the organisational specific context, competencies, level & duration required. Learning sessions are practical, relevant & highly interactive. We focus on sustainable change in  mind-set, skills and behaviors. There is good blend of information sharing with personal reflection, assessments, practice sessions, case studies & identification of application opportunities back at work. Group learning & discussions are encouraged with feedback & couching  from the facilities. Workbooks are provided with tools and activities for on-going learning supported with electronic versions.
