E2A is an advisory firm specialising in mid size business (£10m-150m turnover) or those smaller businesses breaching the category.
We do a small number of things well, with services focussing on what we know are the most critical components for leaders to get right - and are often the hardest:
Performance and Culture Architecture
Psychological profiling and work style analysis to recruit well, lead better, deeply motivate key staff or turnaround bad performance.
Elevate Leader and Board Capability
Briefings and workshops designed specifically for leaders to update their philosophies, ingest fresh ideas, adopt current research and demystify contemporary topics to make better decisions.
Leader Support with a Non-Executive Advisor
A Non-Executive Advisor (NEA) is an ideal option for leaders lacking senior, fresh or expert support without formal NED appointment or oversight.
Structured and educative, this programme includes leader and team profiling , master-classes on what leaders of business should know, practical resources and active involvement solving real challenges.
We are often asked to undertake key pieces of work for clients, consulting or implementation. We do so when we know the fit is right and is on a case by case basis.
