What Do We Do?
Whatever It Takes.
We help leaders, teams and organizational systems transform, and share the tools for you to lead the transformation of yourself, your team, enterprise and industry.
Like every human, every organizational system contains the wisdom and knowledge about how to adapt, improve and reinvent itself. We will help you develop and sustain an anticipatory mindset to better see what you already know. Then, you’ll be better positioned to tap the resources, courage, and people you already have to move towards the outcome you envision.
Organizations don't transform, people transform. Great organizational cultures don't just happen. They require a strategy of their own, and flawless execution by people who know how to move, change and realign as a way of life.
Transformational change requires courage, shared exploration and commitment to action.
It requires momentum built and sustained from the inside -> out. It starts with a clear strategy and a few deeply committed and clear change agents who approach their everyday work with a transformational mindset. And, it requires leaders who know how to lead human beings toward a clear vision, how to inspire them to work at their highest level of capability.
Our organizational change model leverages the tools, principles and knowledge you already have to co-create possibilities that leverage the investments you have already made.
RADICAL TEAM ALIGNMENT
High performing and aligned teams execute on the principle of doing the right work, at the right time, using the right process. They are cohesive and committed to sharing accountability and success. Clarifying the what, aligning on the how. Teams that focus on their working relationship in the absence of real-time work get temporary, surface results. That post-team building glow soon fades, and teams find themselves worse off than before their team building efforts began.
Teams that align, that fully address the core issues that facilitate, and that derail results- and make agreements about how they will operate as a collective, often cross-functional unit- those teams know how to sustain high performance. They avoid delays in decision-making, unnecessary drama, and triangulated, frustrating communications.
Our two part Radical Team Alignment process is built on the core imperative that high performing, aligned team must clarify the 'what', and align on the 'how'.
When leaders or teams focus on problems, they get more problems. When they focus on solutions, they get more (and better) solutions. Transformational leadership development is an individual and team sport that requires new skills, mindsets and practice in real-time.
Leaders rarely get honest, direct feedback about their performance, and almost never about their style of interacting with others and the impact it has on people's productivity, motivation and engagement. Transformational leaders and teams develop the competencies to explore, adjust and improve their style as leaders to meet the call of people in their organizations.
We collect and provide clear and practicable, solution-focused feedback, and partner with leaders and teams to candidly address what is getting in the way of reaching the highest level of sustained results. Leaders learn how to gather that feedback for themselves, as part of a continuous improvement cycle that drives individual and team high performance, and accelerates results.
Using our intensive Five Step Solution-Focused Model, you and your team will be clear and aligned on exactly where you're headed and how you'll get there. Together.
CUSTOM TRAINING & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Training and leadership development workshops designed to create transformational leaders and accelerate results. No more classroom programs that check the box, and provide a temporary uptick in behavior or performance. Our custom workshops are experiential, energizing and based on the brain science of how we learn, and how we apply what we learn for the long term.
Our offerings include custom training workshops and leadership development designed in collaboration with you, and based on your immediate organizational goals and long term aspirations. Built on the science of how we learn, we use our signature approach of learn -> do -> apply to incorporate active learning strategies and multiple practice opportunities to solidify and sustain outcomes.
We specialize in Leadership Development, Competency Building Workshops and Emerging Leader Development.
How Do We Do It?
With Custom Solutions.
