Issue 1 2022 15 Oct21748 The Consulting Firm That Delivers Results Our Best International Leadership Consulting Firm 2022 - United Kingdom is CorporateDNA Consulting. The company, founded in 2007, takes corporate consulting to a whole new level. CorporateDNA Consulting uses its unique 5H© methodology to deliver impact through real results, hard evidence and sustainable change. Powerful corporate transformation requires commitment, courage, and authenticity. But sometimes even that’s not enough. The complexity that surrounds a change process can often lead to wasted time, thwarted efforts, and frustration. For the past 15 years, CorporateDNA has been guiding a number of Executive teams, CXOs, CHROs and Business Leaders through challenges and towards their dreams and aspirations. The company was destined for greatness from the start. Before founding CorporateDNA, CEO, Rhea Leckie, was appointed as a director of PricewaterhouseCoopers UK at the tender age of 31. Having gained a reputation for impact and authenticity in boardrooms across the UK, Rhea took the bold step of forming her own company. In its first 18 months, CorporateDNA had partnered with three of the top 10 FTSE companies, HSBC, BP and Unilever. Today the company retains its London headquarters and has its APAC HQ in Singapore. The CorporateDNA team numbers 75 practitioners, based in 36 countries. The team’s diversity forms part of its “One DNA Team” principle. Bestin-class people from a range of backgrounds including behavioural science, organisation development, psychology and business specialise in building trusted relationships to deliver the power of the ‘DNA Experience’ to every client, every time. Rhea tells us, “We’ve built an enduring reputation for breathing purpose into environments. We create authentic moments of magic in everything we do. This spans across Culture, Leadership, Talent, High Performing Teams, I&D and Coaching. In our 15-year journey, CorporateDNA has been helping clients deliver exceptional results on transformations across global companies such as Unilever, Vodafone, GlaxoSmithKline, Heineken, Coca Cola, Morgan Stanley and Aston Martin.” Translating intent into action is a skill that’s always in demand. Clients of the company are impressed by the team’s passion, expertise and ability to unlock potential. Creating safe spaces for honest and courageous conversations to take place differentiates CorporateDNA from its competitors. Combine this with a straightforward, honest approach and it’s easy to see why the firm remains a favourite of FTSE 100 clients. CorporateDNA’s unique 5H© methodology has its foundations in neuroscience. Having used this approach in all its programs from culture transformation to team building, and from executive coaching to leadership development, 95% of CorporateDNA’s clients believe that this is the secret to the company’s success. The 5H’s being respectively Head (thinking), Heart (relating), Hunch (sensing), Hands (doing) and Habits (applying). The method activates both internal and external processes to facilitate a “whole leadership” approach. Challenges to beliefs, emotions, and instincts encourage learners to identify potential stumbling blocks and put practices into place to negotiate challenges. Genevieve James, Senior Consultant tell us “What makes our offering different is that we meet our clients where they are at but quickly earn the right to be bold in disrupting them, to think bigger and move beyond the ‘known’” On team culture, Rhea tells us, “Relationships are at the core of who we are. We build long-term, deep relationships with our people and become part of each other’s stories. We are part of a family who cares about each other, have real debate, stay close and grow, laugh and unmask together.” When asked about the impact of COVID-19, Rhea explains, “Based on the old adage fortune favours the brave, I believe crisis breeds ingenuity. Disruptive ideas put into practice during stability can propel any business to breakout performance during a crisis. Corporate DNA was fortunate to have developed and executed digital strategies. COVID has proven the necessity of digital transformation to business longevity.” CorporateDNA has experienced a period of growth that Rhea attributes to the blurring of geo boundaries and expanding possibilities to deliver services. Heading into 2022, CorporateDNA has launched a dedicated coaching business, Momentum headed by Senior Executive Coach, Philip Paul. “Momentum aims to give senior clients a private and trusted space in which to reflect, re-purpose and re-imagine boundaries whilst dealing with the complexity of the current global environment” Contact: Rhea Leckie Company: CorporateDNA Consulting Web Address:
