OUR SERVICES  


Leaders must constantly deal with current and emerging challenges.

These challenges do not remain static—their symptoms, frequency, intensity, and duration continuously change.

In such an environment, today's strength may prove to be tomorrow's fatal flaw.


 

Not surprisingly, many leaders stay awake at night thinking about ways to:

  • Mitigate the adversarial forces (rising costs, lost equity, lagging accounts receivable) currently bearing down on them and their organization.
  • Foster and maintain the sustainable support and assistance needed to successfully implement their strategy.
  • Build and enhance a workforce flexible and resilient enough to survive and flourish in a constantly changing business environment.
  • Develop a leadership base capable of creating and sustaining teams that are skilled, committed, confident, and aligned with the business strategy.

For these challenges we offer our assistance. The following descriptions provide a general overview of what we do. In each instance, we strive to understand the challenges and opportunities you face and tailor our services to best meet your needs.

Executing Strategy
Given today’s tumultuous business environment, you must periodically review and refine your business strategies. This review may reveal a "disconnect" between your strategies and their execution. This disconnect impedes actions critical to your success and, if not addressed, may threaten your organization's survival.

Our process, developed by a team of professionals with extensive experience in implementation issues, uses a proven methodology, tools, and techniques to:

  1. Determine capabilities key to your organization's success
  2. Identify gaps in capabilities limiting your ability to be successful
  3. Develop a practical action plan to close those gaps

These services help your organization ensure a quicker and more effective implementation of business strategies by developing a practical action plan to capitalize on key strengths and overcome obstacles to success.

Developing Leaders
The world abounds with leadership models, each one proclaiming the path to financial rewards and future success. We believe most of these models have a blind spot, the context into which they fit–the context of your organization. When it comes to leadership, people must learn what is needed to lead your organization to the success you desire.

We will work with your organization to:

  1. Determine leadership capabilities key to your organization's success
  2. Determine gaps in individual capabilities
  3. Develop and implement practical organizational and individual strategies to close those gaps

These services yield two important outcomes: the creation of a personalized plan designed to address your organization's leadership needs and individuals who know what is needed to lead your organization to success.

Accelerating Change
You operate within an increasingly complex industry and market. That, coupled with rapid advancements in technology, contributes to a multitude of challenges that can be summed up as related to accelerating change.

If you are preparing to launch a new strategy, technology, system, or process, we will help you:

  1. Understand your organization's readiness to move forward
  2. Identify both challenges and opportunities for successful deployment
  3. Capitalize on the opportunities and address the challenges

If your organization's members need help in coping with generic change management issues (e.g., the inappropriate reaction to rapid changes occurring throughout their professional and personal lives), we will help them:

  1. Understand realities associated with today's fast-paced world
  2. Identify benefits and liabilities associated with changes that are occurring
  3. Begin developing (and applying) appropriate coping strategies

These services yield two important outcomes: a work force more actively engaged in your organization's success and a work force that more swiftly adapts to rapidly changing strategies, technologies, systems, and processes.
