Optimising People and Performance

Enhance organisational performance by leveraging deep insights to inform strategic decision making and challenge established thinking.

Drawing on 25 years consulting experience in Australia and the UK, I specialise in providing people-focused solutions that optimise organisational performance. Psychology and neuroscience underpin all my projects, because understanding human behaviour and culture is critical for business success.

My approach begins with gaining deep insights into your organisation and then collaboratively designing and delivering a customised program of work to achieve your business goals. From boosting productivity, pursuing growth, navigating change, or fostering a more engaged workforce, I rely on proven methodologies and a robust toolkit to deliver the best possible outcomes.

With extensive experience across a range of industries including government, mining, engineering, and construction, I have earned a reputation as a trusted consultant who provides candid, straightforward advice. I am comfortable navigating complexity and uncertainty, and always deliver on my promises.

Successful leaders acknowledge they can’t do it all themselves.

Do you need to:

  • Gain unbiased insights and intelligence into your business performance
  • Use this knowledge to drive growth through transformation
  • Transition a business to sell, merge or buy
  • Accelerate leadership alignment
  • Ensure your transformational change sticks
  • Build integrated, effective teams, no matter where they work
  • Create a productive, healthy culture.

Ensure your organisation’s future success with demonstrable results.

Let’s be honest, consultants should be delivering more than just advice. Consultants come and go, and trends are outdated quickly.

With experience working across a diverse range of clients, including private and publicly listed companies, government agencies and not-for-profit organisations, I believe that a leader’s investment should not only result in sustainable outcomes, but also create significant positive impact on the bottom line.  My services can be customised to provide a complete solution tailored to the unique needs of your business.

Sal Lauder Consulting - Leadership, Culture and Team Development

Leadership, Culture and Team Development

Inspiring leaders invest in creating a positive and productive culture that fosters teamwork, growth and success.

Effective leadership, culture and team development are critical to business success, but they are often undervalued or seen as ‘soft’ skills. However, the opposite is true, creating a healthy and productive culture can be challenging, even for the most progressive leaders.

I provide expert advice, strategies, and support to improve leadership, culture and organisational development that helps senior leaders achieve their organisational goals.

  • Culture assessments and pulse checks
  • Aligning strategy and culture

  • Accelerated leadership alignment
  • Development of high performing teams
  • M&A integration
  • Strengthening capability
  • Sourcing and retaining talent.
Sal Lauder Consulting - Psychometrics and 360 Leadership Assessment

Psychometrics and 360 Leadership Assessment

Insightful leaders seek to understand themselves and their people better.

Assessments are valuable in gaining a deeper understanding of your own leadership style, strengths, motivations, and behaviours, as well as those of your peers, and teams. This level of insight can significantly enhance leadership performance and empower teams to work together more effectively.

I am accredited in several assessment and profiling tools that provide a robust and evidence-driven way to build upon strengths, improve teamwork and establish more productive relationships.

Leadership 360-degree assessments are an excellent tool for senior leaders and their direct reports to enable better strategic employee decisions and identify development gaps.

Customised tools can be designed, administered and followed up with detailed debriefs for each participant, informing development plans.

Sal Lauder Consulting - Facilitation and Training

Facilitation and Training

Impactful leaders provide opportunities for alignment, development, and information-sharing.

Enhance the quality of your meetings, workshops, or events with an experienced facilitator who can provide a fresh perspective on agenda planning and guide your group towards achieving their objectives. Effective facilitation skills can keep participants moving forward, even when encountering contentious issues or getting bogged down in detail. With my facilitation skills, your meetings and events will be more productive, efficient and engaging.

I create meaningful engagement by designing and facilitating events from high impact workshops and planning sessions to programs that improve skills and performance.
