Talent Strategy


Gain clarity and alignment on the requirements for success at each level of leadership

“Chance” should not dictate your talent strategy any more than it defines your business success. Otherwise, you risk inadvertently creating a human capital hodgepodge—a patchwork of siloed talent systems with limited power to truly benefit your business.

Instead, with MDA Leadership, you will gain clarity and alignment on the requirements for success at each level of leadership, so you can produce the leadership behaviors needed to achieve your business objectives. Quite simply, clear and explicit expectations for leaders—including the attributes they need to bring to the table in order to achieve your strategic and cultural priorities—are essential for success.

Ultimately, we help you build the ideal foundation for creating the talent-related tools, processes, and capabilities needed to recruit, develop, promote, and retain the right leaders to propel your organization into the future. By integrating and aligning your talent systems, you will accelerate the capabilities and readiness of leaders at every level to lead change, sustain alignment, and inspire success.

Create a Talent-Based Competitive Advantage

By developing, validating, and integrating a leadership framework into all of your organization’s talent systems, you can create a talent-based competitive advantage centered on your leadership brand.

Think about it—your organization’s brand promise can be delivered through its superior leadership capabilities. With a leadership framework, you will more easily and efficiently be able to:

  • Attain more consistent level-specific leadership behaviors
  • Give leaders a richer understanding of their strengths and development needs
  • Accelerate time-to-productivity and development to ensure more “ready now” leaders for key leadership roles
  • Create a common language for performance and career management conversations
  • Align organizational expectations regarding future leadership success
  • Establish a foundation for integrating and aligning your talent systems
