Our services have a common promise to increase your organizational capacity for leadership. We train and develop leaders to effectively influence and motivate others to get things done and we then we provide them with best practices and tools that turn strategy into results.
We take a different approach to leadership development. We believe that great leaders evolve with the opportunities and competencies required to make their organization successful in any given business environment. That’s a lot of change for any one leader to deal with alone. Therefore, our focus is on your organization’s capacity for leadership where every individual in the organization has the commitment and ability to lead within his or her area of accountability. This capacity is within the culture and the behaviors and systems that perpetuate it. Can you trust every employee or team to make decisions aligned with your organization’s mission or vision? If yours is a culture of leadership, you can.
Leadership is not just a capability of individuals – to be effective, leadership must be a characteristic of team and organizational culture. Our leadership training and development services have a common emphasis on emotional intelligence, in individuals and the work environment with sustainability through shifts in organizational culture.
Achieving the change you envision must happen through change in people. Introducing any change, be it technology, process, or organizational, must address a long list of human fears. Our approach to developing change strategy focuses on the alignment of mission, culture, and how decisions are made. We implement by developing personal, social and structural abilities and motivations to sustain it. This approach is a combination of the two methodologies with which we’ve had the most success:
- Kotter’s Eight Step Change Model
- Six Sources of Influence (Grenly, Maxfield and Shimber)
We integrate coaching in all that we do. While facilitating planning, implementing change, or delivering training, we also look for opportunities to coach our clients in the strategies and leadership skills they wish to enhance. This approach provides real cases for development and benefits the individual while supporting what he or she is seeking to accomplish.
Effective group facilitation is one of the best ways to engage and leverage diverse perspectives and engage the people most impacted by the decision-making process. We facilitate team-building, planning sessions, focus groups, and public forums using methodologies that encourage open, creative, and comfortable dialog with a focus. Our mediation experience has been valuable in effectively facilitating problem solving and conflict resolution. As part of our facilitation services, we can also assist you with determining the right attendees, developing research questions and surveys, analyzing data, and completing comprehensive summary reports.
