People stuff with pragmatism
For a long time we've been frustrated by the way traditional 'human resources' is seen so negatively. People really ARE our greatest asset - cliched as that sounds.
There’s so much research to back that up – happy people, do good work, and create happy customers, which create more profitable businesses (ok, researchers from places like Harvard wrote about the Employee-Customer Value chain much more eloquently, but that’s the guts of it)
But we get that the HR function don’t always align with the business quite the way you’d like them to. Our goal is to change that, by providing HR services, without the fluff.
At Tactician we’re known for our pragmatic, practical development programs that really change behaviours and get fast results.
It's this attitude that we want to bring to all things HR.
Our HR consulting services provide pragmatic, down to earth solutions to your people challenges:
- Know you need a performance management system, but scared it’ll just be another clunky process that frustrates people rather than helping your business succeed? We can help.
- Know you need some sort of people strategy, but afraid it’ll introduce a heap of unnecessary fluff rather than supporting your business strategy? We can help.
- Frustrated that the people you hire just aren’t the right fit and keep leaving (or being ‘encouraged’ to leave)? We can help.
- Want to create some values for your business that REALLY change the way people behave (rather than just being nice posters in the lunch room)? We can help.
- Heard of this thing called ‘engagement, but don’t get why it’s more than just an employee survey – or why you should care? We can help.
We could go on, but you get the gist. Whatever ‘people stuff’ you’re struggling with, we can help. Give us a call for a no obligation chat – we’ll be happy to suggest anything we think will help you (and we won’t even charge for those initial pearls of wisdom!)
MPT HR: using the same model as our trademark ‘in the moment’ guidance, My Personal Tactician, MPT HR provides businesses who don’t have HR with a way of getting quick, pragmatic people advice.
If you think you could do with some HR support, but don’t have enough people for a full time resource, we can fill that gap for you.
From being a sounding board when you’ve got a challenging employee, to supporting you through recruitment for critical roles or helping you manage your annual review process, whatever your day to day HR need, MPT HR can fill that gap.
How it works:
You pay a monthly subscription which gives you access to a certain number of hours support each month. You get allocated a Tactician HR expert, who will work with your business so they get to know you and your people. When you need them, you just call – they’ll get back to you within a maximum of 6 hours, but usually much sooner.
If you’d like to know more about MPT HR, contact us and we’ll get one of our team to give you a call to learn more about your needs. No obligation.
"I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The sessions were candid and direct, and afforded the opportunity to be self-reflective. Tactician’s style challenges you in a positive and constructive manner."
I really enjoyed the session and felt empowered today to test a few techniques in my team meeting.

"The difference in the way I approached my work after a handful of sessions with my Tactician is a credit to his skills and insight."

"The Gutsy Pitching program was fantastic. The theory was helpful to reframe how I thought about pitching, and the practice sessions were fantastic at helping me to refine the art of pitching. The masterclass helped me to notice ways to improve all the small elements from the way I spoke to my presence in the room."
Tactician's Leadership & Culture program is one of the most interesting training programs I have ever been through. It has given me tools to become more effective in every area of life whilst reducing stress and improving relationships across the board. I would recommend it to any company that understands the value of good culture in an organisation!"
"I would highly recommend the Gutsy Culture program, it takes all the fluff and bubble out of "culture". As a team we've got a much tighter grip on what a great team culture really looks like and are on the right track now to implementing some actionable steps. I've personally gained a lot out of the program; the direct feedback received from the surveys and the A-grade coaching has really helped me. I've also seen our team grow a lot under this program, everyone is pulling towards a common goal and taking on more leadership responsibilities. An accurate measure for me if a coaching program is worth it, is how the team responds, and the response has been fantastic! Thanks again."
"I am always one to be a little nervous and hesitant from that coming into situations and workshops where I have to open up and expose myself. Even if was still a little shaken from pushing myself, I felt so much better off for facing that fear and a lot more confident in myself, not just pitching."

"Rod’s mastery of the art of presenting was evident both in the delivery of the workshop and tactful tutelage of participants."
"I found the Gutsy Presenting program both challenging in terms of looking within and how I communicate (the video doesn’t lie) and rewarding in terms of my learnings."

"I just wanted to share how much of an impact the program had on me. It really was probably the most impressionable professional development course I have done, and I have your techniques constantly on my mind."
"I had the pleasure of engaging in a coaching relationship over the past 12 months and cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The sessions were candid and direct whilst at the same time afforded the opportunity to be self-reflective, my Tactician’s style challenges you in a positive and constructive manner."
