Metaco is a specialist leadership development consultancy and a subsidiary of the Comair Group, part of its growth strategy to diversify its services beyond aviation into other key industries. The development of effective leadership and aligned teams has been identified by Comair as central to its own success and crucial for the future of any organization, irrespective of context.

Our clients are predominantly Senior Leadership and Boards (teams and individuals), in the private and public sectors, in South Africa and worldwide. Working at the interface between strategy, leadership development and organizational culture, our systemic focus is on enabling high-performing, networked teams and leaders that are aligned with the needs of their stakeholders and deliver significantly more than the sum of their parts, within a learning environment.

Metaco partners with you in co-creating the strategy and solutions that will best suit you, combining our respective knowledge, experience, skill and talents, for the most effective outcomes. Engaging key stakeholders in shaping the strategy helps ensure it is developed in a realistic and relevant way, with spending targeted where the return to the organisation is high. Clarity of approach and accountability is combined with appropriate flexibility for situational adaptation.

Our expertise in systemic thinking means we pay attention to the relationships between the parts of your system, and the nested systems that exist in your organisation. At an even higher level, through what is now known as ecosystemic thinking, we consider the impact of your organization on external systems. This advanced level skill is rarely found, yet this is the crucial element enabling the ability to thrive in today’s VUCA world.

We go to great lengths to ensure that our work is congruent, sustainable and aligned with the expressed values of the organisation, the results it seeks, and the expectations of its stakeholders.

The quality and experience of the consultants you select to partner with your organization in scoping, implementing and managing leadership development programs is crucial to successful results. In the same way that you invest significant effort and expense into recruiting top leadership for your company, equal attention should go into selecting suitable partners to work with them to achieve the maximum returns.

In partnering with Metaco you entrust the development of your senior leadership to an experienced, knowledgeable and highly skilled consultancy, with a track record for enabling the credible, high-performing leadership teams that create the success of your company in this 21st century world.
