Colette Cavaleros

Senior Consultant

The focus of Colette’s work is around “flow” – creating flow for the individual through supporting the identification and realisation of full potential; and flow in the organisation through supporting the creation of optimal structures and conditions so that full value can be extracted from its human capital. 

Colette has accumulated a wealth of consulting experience across a multitude of industries including cellular, mining, pharmaceutical, retail, hospitality, manufacturing, automotive, construction, aviation, financial/banking, para-statal and government. She has worked successfully with diverse groups of people, across all levels in organisations, predominantly in Africa and Australasia. Her areas of speciality include organisational analysis and design, assessment centre design and implementation, succession planning and talent management, leadership and skills development, competency framework development, and team dynamics.

Colette started her career as a Consultant at Dyad Training and Development, followed by 3 years at KPMG / Global Edge in a Consultant capacity. She spent 4 years at BIOSS SA in the role of (Senior) Consultant, and then joined Assessment Centre Technologies initially as a Senior Industrial Psychologist and then as National Operations Manager. She managed her own Consultancy for 9 years in South Africa, and during that period, was an Associate of Deloitte Human Capital and BIOSS SA. She moved to New Zealand in July 2016, and is currently Principal Consultant at WorkInFlow.

With a strong focus on collaboration and customer service, the aspect of her work she finds most fulfilling is “drawing on my global network to partner with my clients in creating customised and fit-for-purpose solutions”. Her approach and style is pragmatic and balanced, and remains business focused rather than technically complex.
