WHO WE HELP
Services for Executives
Over 25 years experience building executive programs. Your business is unique. Your executives are unique. We build programs that work for you.
It’s difficult to be successful at the senior levels because roles are full of complexity and challenges. People’s experiences are often filtered, making it difficult to have an accurate perspective on how people are experiencing them. An executive coach is often a difference-maker for people to achieve much higher levels of success. In a recent survey done by Stanford, nearly 100% of CEOs want an executive coach, but only 1/3 have one.
Services for Organizations
Let us help take the complexity out of strategic thinking, planning and execution.
Good strategic plans requires the ability to look at something from a systems-level perspective, ability to look longer term, ability to drive decision making, and then channel that into a plan with good metrics. Essentially this work is about orchestrating a series of expansion and contraction exercises to determine the path. What is the market doing? What are the competitors doing? What are our unique market opportunities? What do we have as enablers? What are our headwinds? These plus many more, are all various elements that you should wrestle with in crafting a strategic plan.
Services for Teams
Whether you're looking to create a high performance team, facilitate work sessions, or fix broken teams, let us help you move your team towards success.
Have a new team that needs some help with establishing a strong cohesive foundation? Have a team that has been together for some time and has plateaued? Have a team that has some dynamics at play that are creating tension?
We have extensive experience with each of these situations. By developing an understanding of the situation and cultivating a strong rapport with the team members, we are able to quickly identify the root issues and move the team forward to even greater heights.
Services for Individuals
We are world renown for our coaching capabilities. Helping successful people be more successful is our hallmark.
We provide problem solving help to people from all walks of life. We help improve skills and gain perspective. We are great partners to help think out loud together. Additionally, we can help you move your career forward. People have careers; organizations don’t. People should understand that the career planning process should be driven and owned by the employees. Smart companies help and hold managers accountable to be strong supporting players, but that’s merely an accelerant. Even if you have that level of support in an organization, it’s still up to the individual.
Services for Managers
It should be intuitive and obvious why and how you do things as it relates to employees, and we do an excellent job helping managers understand how it all fits.
At the end of the day, most things come down to the talent you have. Wouldn’t it seem obvious that superior talent management skills are critical for leaders to have? We agree. Consider these statistics:
60% of managers underperform in their first two years, with negative consequences for both new managers and direct reports.
70% of employees report that they don’t have mastery of the skills needed to do their jobs.
49% reported that they felt unprepared to succeed when switching into their role as manager.
70% of a team’s engagement is influenced by managers (Gallup, 2021).
Talent management is one of the most misunderstood, under-skilled areas for both managers and organizations alike. Talent management consists of the processes, practices, and activities that managers use in hiring people, determining their compensation, managing their job performance, training and developing them, and planning for replacing them should they leave or be promoted. We are experts in talent management...actually having written the book on it. We are effective partners to helping managers learn how to be incredibly impactful.
