Just Libra were instrumental with a number of initiatives designed to improve customer service delivery from the internal Direct Labour Organisation and external partnering contractors, Crudens & P H Jones.

Through their knowledge and experience they developed and rolled out a performance management framework throughout the DLO and were able to produce a comprehensive framework that was successfully implemented.

Their work on organisational design incorporating social housing values into privately owned contractors was imperative, and they were able to fully understand the commercial importance, as well as integrating social values into the service provision. The performance of both the internal and external contractors are now in the top quartile and I believe the success of these collaborative partnerships have been strengthened as a consequence of Just Libra’s excellent contribution and enthusiasm for excellence.

Just Libra worked on leadership and development training for my Management Team and brought a flair for creativity, innovation, energy and fun, enabling engagement with the Team.

They created a Competency, Skills and Role Route Map for individuals and managers to assist in development towards career progression; promoting a unique customer experience service in coaching managers,  and equipping them to make best use of the resource for the broader business benefit. A number of people have been promoted into more senior roles and staff  have really valued the input and commitment.

Director, Janet Richmond has also cascaded a Customer Service approach across the organisation at all levels, ensuring consistency across a large group (18,000 properties) and led a range of in-house leadership and development projects to assist change management practices which have been enjoyed by senior staff / executives.

She is talented and enthusiastic about doing the right thing and really makes a difference for people.

Janet Richmond, director of Just Libra, worked with me to create a framework and set of competencies that a ‘fit for purpose’ board would demonstrate.

Having set the framework Janet then worked with the board and coached individual board members to raise awareness of their own contribution. The work focused on culture, behaviour and working as a team. Her searching questions are thought provoking and stretching, yet she is able to create an environment of trust and openness which gets the best out of people. Her work is inspiring and she made a real difference.
