Leaders come to work in order to do two things: Develop better people and develop better ideas. When these two forces combine, the engines of improvement and innovation begin to visibly accelerate. To assist leaders in making this happen, our leadership development portfolio consists of Executive Coaching and Seminars.
Executive Coaching Advice is plentiful, but good advice is difficult to come by these days.
Executive Coaching is a one-on-one leadership advisory service, enabling decision-makers to enhance their leadership skills and performance through confidential advice and guidance. By focusing on individual potential and individual obstacles, coaching provides the opportunity to drill down to specific cause and effect, resulting in specific corrective action. The confidential nature of the relationship provides the safe environment necessary to conduct open, frank discussions, explore creative solutions and implement specific developmental actions.
Whether your challenge is unrealized performance potential, a major change in strategy or direction, work/family balance, employee morale, salvaging a "difficult" employee or managing priorities better, Executive Coaching helps you:
- Resolve strategic business issues by enlisting the outlook of an experienced, unbiased outsider - Examine alternative ways of viewing problems and opportunities - Address critical concerns, strengths, weaknesses, and their implications by providing a trusted sounding board - Think outside the box, by challenging paradigms and assumptions, and serving as a catalyst for innovation

You're already good at what you do. Executive Coaching will make you better!
The world of competition and change has little tolerance or sympathy for those who allow their skills to weaken or grow stale. Skills require replenishment and refinement in order to remain sharpened and ready. And they don't just weaken without help from humans, in the form of neglect and complacency. Through a targeted array of seminars, we help organizations build and reinforce the skills needed to set the pace for tomorrow.
We target skills that restore and accelerate collaboration within teams. So, our seminars address the friction that plagues so many teams today:
- Between Cultures, including age-related, regional, gender-based, religious, racial and national cultures - Between Priorities, where you can't get it all done so you have to make difficult choices, some of which will generate pain - Between Efficiency and Effectiveness , namely "doing things right" vs. "doing the right things"
Friction is prevalent in today's workplace and will be moreso in the future. Many organizations make the mistake of assuming that all friction is negative and that either the friction or the people involved are "bad" and must be eliminated.
Our public seminars are usually 1.5 to 2 days in duration and highly interactive. Using the Socratic method, the agenda consists of a small amount of lecture combined with considerable discussion, including case studies. Customized seminars, delivered at the location of your choice, can be longer or shorter, based on the specific needs of your organization.
