We deliver management consulting, group facilitation, breakthrough innovation, training and coaching services. Our programs and services help make strategic investments in developing leaders, turning goals into rock solid commitments, improved communication, collaboration, culture and results.
Individual and team performance improvements contribute to both local and organizational health, improved morale, ability to lead and manage change, innovate, and add meaning to work. These investments in people, processes and practices yield better economic performance. But we help achieve this in ways that last … in ways that can truly make a workplace work better.
|Type of Service||Summary of Specialization|
|Develop Leaders & Organizations||Helping organizations develop their leaders, so leaders can improve performance, and achieve breakthrough results. We use a system of assessment, planning and applied learning, which can be combined with specific modules on presentation skills, leading meetings, group facilitation, collaboration or teamwork skills (see next skill area). With deep experience in using data analytics and business intelligence to unify teamwork, focus and align innovation initiatives, provide consensual accountability and and empower change.
We bring expertise in business, management and cutting-edge neuroscience applied to business communication, coaching, collaboration and the human relations aspects of quality, sales, and customer service. [ “Maturity” coaching | When to use coaching | Benefits of coaching ]
|Group Facilitation & Retreats||Helping teams or organizations get on the same page about plans, develop a shared vision, or “norms” for working together can be a huge time-saving and often delicate task. It is rare for people to actually understand each other let alone agree. But it does no good to “demand” compliance or consensus — it must arrive from effective group dynamics and seem like a choice. We bring groups together in the right context, manage expectations and succeed in winning their hearts and minds, returning inspired and with new enthusiasm for focused work, taking initiative and being accountable to commitments they have made.
