Our Approach

Strategic planning, accountability and leadership development – all in one

 

My experience leading and facilitating teams that need to hit mission critical goals shows that there are three essential elements that drive success:

  1. A strategic plan focused on the right goals
  2. A structure to implement and track the plan with complete accountability
  3. Best practices for leadership and teamwork

Here’s my belief: when you integrate these practices into a cohesive program, the results of the team are dramatically better than when these components are handled separately.

 

When you work with me, you’ll:

Commit to a robust discipline that links strategy and people to results. You’ll learn to translate big ideas and audacious goals into concrete steps for action. You’ll build a plan that defines, step-by-step, how your people will get your organization to your goals by breaking long-term achievements into short-term targets.

Build a high functioning team.  You’ll learn to develop strategies and make decisions that everyone can stand behind.  You’ll resolve conflicts, create better working relationships and create more alignment.

Create a culture of accountability.  People know who is on the hook for what. The team is disciplined to rigorously discuss how’s, what’s, who’s and when’s, question the status quo and tenaciously follow through to ensure accountability.

Develop a shared approach.  The team realizes they have come together to create something bigger than themselves.  They are enrolled in a common purpose and energy is no longer wasted on politics, paralysis by analysis or meetings that don’t matter.

 

We focus on results now – but the benefits of the work will last for years.  You’ll build a sustainable team that knows how to harness the efforts of others, expand individual capacity and synchronize efforts to dramatically increase the impact of their work.

 

We’ve got a track record of achieving these kinds of tangible results with our clients. If you’d like to find out more, read our case studies.
