Culture, collaboration, communication and cultivation.
A personal interview or an assessment is completed to analyze the current culture, examine client goals and determine needs and objectives to be accomplished. We diagnose before we prescribe.
As sessions are launched, a tone of collaboration is created. Participants are encouraged to suspend their mental models and to examine the topic/subject with new eyes. This process promotes a spirit of collaborative learning. Everyone brings something to the table.
Through discussions, case studies, individual scenarios and interactive activities, the group reaches an understanding of the topic. Most importantly, application opportunities are discussed and a plan of implementation is developed. From classroom to cubicle.
Learning events are only successful to the extent people do something different afterwards. Cultivation includes personal action planning, partnering for accountability and development of strategies for ongoing improvement. Do something different.
We have formed strong relationships with partners around the globe. These professionals can assist you or your company with highly specialized services ranging from virtual assistants to video production. Feel free to ask about our partners and what they can do for you. We play well with others!
It’s pretty simple, really. Clients challenge us every day. Find a fresh, cost-effective approach to improve the way we do business. Each customer is different and we actively seek unique solutions for each one. The businesses we work with are as varied as the projects we perform for them. Our clients include private companies, government offices, and nonprofits. We believe all organizations can be successful when the environment (working, intellectual and emotional) and the person (vision, process and skills) are aligned.
