A 2013 Gallup poll revealed that 70% of the American workforce is not engaged in their work. This staggering statistic reinforces Patrick Lencioni’s leadership belief that “organizational health trumps everything else in business” (The Advantage, 2012).
Our leadership solutions are designed to build internal organizational strength. Often, organizations spend more time developing their organizational roadmap (strategy) than building a strong organizational engine (health and engagement). We can help you facilitate organizational health through our solutions which equip, empower and align individuals and teams to succeed.
Equip: Develop Strengths-Based Leadership Development (Team or Individual)
Each of us is wired to excel in different ways. When our work duties align with our natural abilities we maximize our achievements and have a lot of fun in the process! Effective team members know what they are good at and align their work with these strengths. The Strengths-based leadership development process is based upon extensive Gallup research. The process provides an overview of strengths-based leadership as well as an assessment of participants top five strengths. We then work with participants to develop action plans which apply these strengths to individuals maximum advantage.
The Strengthsfinder tool is an individual assessment, however, the results are maximized when they are shared and applied in a group or a team setting. We use this solution as both a personal coaching exercise, as a team-building experience or a combination of both. The Strengthsfinder process benefits by including post-workshop coaching sessions to help individuals or teams put what they have learned into action. Tell me more!
Equip: Identify Your Leadership Style
How do you lead? How is your leadership style perceived by others? What are the strengths and weaknesses of your leadership style?
Knowing how you lead and how your style affects others are ingredients of becoming a more effective leader. Through a personal meeting (in-person or via Skype) we will go through a series of leadership assessments which will be used to formulate your personal leadership style. We will review your results with you you personally and also provide a written summary. The process will include a list of resources for further study and tips on how to improve your leadership skills. This process provides even more benefit by including post-workshop coaching sessions to help you apply their learning in the workplace. Tell me more!

The overall goal is to increase your knowledge about how you are perceived and improve your ability to understand others. Tell me more!
Empower: Develop Global Leadership Competencies
Increasingly, 21st century leaders must possess skills to work in a global business environment. Whether it is within your personal network or as you interact with multi-national companies, you must understand and be able to appropriately respond to unique differences in leadership, culture and custom. The Global Leadership Competency process is based uponin the largest global leadership research project in history. The GLOBE Leadership Project provides cultural leadership data on over 63 regions of the world. The first phase of this process utilizes this research to help individuals understand their own cultural norms and biases. In phase 2 we identify specific cultures and study their cultural norms as well and preferred leadership styles. This process culminates through the identification of similarities, differences and the development of strategies which equip leaders to be more effective in their work. Tell me more!

Coaching programs can be short 0r long term and are customized based on your needs and priorities. Tell me more!
