What We Do

 

We specialize in culture change work and developing the leaders who must drive culture – it is our sole focus and our passion. We create experiences that allow people to understand their organization, their co-workers, and their stakeholders in new ways, and that align actions with desired results. Our personal and collective work over 30 years has been creating experiences that fundamentally change people.

Consulting

You are the expert in your business; we are the experts on organizational change and developing the leaders who must execute it. We help you build the structure needed to implement your strategic plan.  We listen, help problem solve, support your efforts and help frame changes in ways that people will follow.

Coaching

A coach provides an outside and neutral perspective, and sheds light on the blind spots that hinder forward progress.  As coaches, we reflect and clarify the choices available as well as the likely outcomes. We coach executives through change and growth, difficult employees to improve sub-optimal behaviors, and star performers to reach the next level.

Facilitation

We facilitate groups – from the executive team to the front line – to think, plan, and execute effectively. We guide you through the critical conversations. We work with you to make a plan, work the plan, and then get flexible and do what must be done for your ultimate success.

Training Programs

Effective leadership development is about building character-based competencies, or traits, not just teaching simple skills, theories, and techniques. Traits-based leadership development is lasting, effective and improves your bottom line as thousands of our clients can attest.

Our approach to training is to make it EPIC – experiential, participatory, image rich, connected. Training designed in this way spans generational and other differences between people and maximizes the amount of information that sticks. It makes sense — the more interactive and engaging training is, the easier it is to pay attention.
