Quintessence Development Solutions, founded by Leyya Kalla is a management-consulting firm providing tailor made solutions for effective operational efficiency and lasting transformation. The company's focus was borne from Leyya's personal and extensive experience in the corporate banking environment for well over a decade. During that time Leyya was exposed to more than ten industries, assisting them in reprogramming their business operations and processes, to formulating their strategies and leading them through large scale change programs. She discovered that the biggest obstacle facing both small and large corporations stems from a lack of human commitment for the desired outcome. Personalities, negative attitudes and ego were significant distractions in lasting and effective progress.
There are often substantial gaps between the strategic goal and objectives in organisations and their operational day-to-day reality. Operational structures in weak organisations are usually over managed and under-led. Continuous change, innovation and efficiency, not coupled with sincere and truly inspirational leadership, would result in these objectives merely being platitudes and the benefit to the organisation would not be evident.
In order for Leyya to discover her own personal excellence she embarked on a rigorous self-development program. Throughout her experiences, she found that the inadequacy of the individual understanding, commitment and passion for success was missing. The corporate objective of maximising shareholder interest does not take into account sufficiently that that interest coincides with the development and evolvement of individuals. We often overlook the human asset. Motivating, inspiring and leading a human being, rather than a resource, leads to long lasting and sustainable results and engenders a sense of personal and collective excellence.
"In this time, where corporates and businesses are open to adopting alternative methods to gain efficiency of operations, a return to the treatment of all parts of the business (people, processes and products) as honoured and respected entities, begins to yield its transformational effects, those already implemented and witnessed by QDS’s existing client base."
