If you pick the right people and give them the opportunity to

spread their wings — and put compensation as

a carrier behind it — you almost don’t have to manage them.

Jack Welch



At the core of every organisation is its people. People innovate products, operate warehouses, drive trucks, develop systems, create strategies, make decisions and in the end, collect the cash! They are your organisation’s most valuable asset.

Olakira’s other 3 areas of focus – Leadership, Strategy, and Change – provide a strong framework for a business to unlock its potential. Our 4th area of focus – Capability – strengthens the foundation of the framework by equipping your people to be best they can be. 

A particular focus area for us is developing middle management capability. This layer is critical to delivery. They shape and influence the daily lived experience of your front line. Often these managers receive very little preparation for this essential role. We have developed a Management Develop Programme that provides a simple and practical toolkit to develop their teams and drive results. The programme is highly scalable, leveraging online and in person delivery, and adaptable to your specific business needs.
