Continuous “Transformation” keeps you ahead of the competition rather than chasing it. Our approach is unique in that we co-create core values, vision, purpose, mission, goals, behaviors, competencies and strategy that drive the shift in mindsets, attitudes and behaviors. We provide a process versus an event that avoids the ‘flavor of the month’ distaste - there is a cadence to it that includes accountability for change.
Our approach involves an alignment process with the leaders, where strategy is built through sweat equity, where it is written, devised, and implemented in a manner that allows everyone from frontline employees to stakeholders to grasp it and own it.
Our approach involves discovery, dialogue and co-creation of a structure and processes that support the Strategy and Culture, aligning the needs of the company around ‘talent’ by finding it, unleashing it, and keeping it as a key element of organizational design. Some companies spend an inordinate amount of time on strategy (or only tactics) when a thorough structural analysis helps to alleviate the “noise in the system”.
Our approach is very experiential and hands-on. We believe in immersive, iterative design that is centered on what is needed and what will work. Leadership Development is a continuous learning process. Our foundational approach starts with knowing thyself, followed by knowing thy team and finally knowing thy business … each of the core sessions are designed for the business, with the business.
"Contrary to the opinion of many people, leaders are not born. Leaders are made, and they are made by effort and hard work." — Vince Lombardi
Our approach, drawn from 25 years of experience, lasers in on the essence of successful teams: where psychological safety, inclusion, and engagement are abundant … though admittedly messy and imperfect as humans are. Using unique team-development processes, we draw upon world-class research and the finer elements of psychometrics to develop an approach which will achieve the right balance of the ‘what’ and the ‘how’. Our gift is the ability to see things that others do not see and to create a safe space to have the real conversations that are engaging and impactful.
We help our clients discern the difference between organizational antibodies with a lack of clarity. Our focus is on activation and acceleration of change initiatives that build momentum throughout entire companies, focusing on every step of the process: i.e. onboarding new employees – especially integrating new leaders (saving months of time by getting the real stuff on the table), managing transitions, and building organizational agility & resilience.
