Leadership Development

This is a customized, tailored plan to meet your company’s expectations and your staff’s needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter plan. We find that most people are capable and competent to perform their job. When your team members aren’t meeting their full potential, we help them find the inspiration and ignite the spark through individual coaching and group development processes.

The formula for true success and sustained excellence includes not only skills and knowledge but also three other essentials:

  • Positive attitudes, which lead to good habits and desired behaviors
  • Successful goal-setting and achievement
  • Alignment of personal and organizational goals

The Process

Based on our work with hundreds of individuals, your team will gain the skills needed to make an immediate positive impact on business results and organizational morale. Some examples of what they will learn:

  • Influencing Skills: Getting results through superiors, subordinates, and peers
  • Change Management: Personal adaptation and gaining ownership and motivation
  • Accountability Skills: Accountability that gets results and leads to growth and development
  • Leadership Lexicons:  The unequivocals of transformational leadership
  • Tangible, sustainable behaviors and habits
  • Vision setting that inspires
  • Leadership and results in the middle of your organization
  • How to be the best leader to your leader
  • Business vs. People? These are  complementary, not adversaries
  • Conflict resolution

The Deliverable

Your team members leave with the tools they need including:

On-going Coaching to keep growing personally and professionally.

Actionable Plans to hit the ground running when they return to work. We provide a storage tool, accountability reminders, and more.

What to expect:

Expect to see your team go from just getting by to becoming a re-engaged, enthusiastic, cohesive team that delivers results. We have a holistic approach to leadership development—their growth will be both personal and professional.

The feedback we hear all the time, “I can’t believe my company helped me not only grow professionally but personally.”

Business Recovery Plans

They are completed virtually within hours (not weeks) and you will finish with a clear roadmap for recovery. Each plan is modular: we work with you to see where you are and that’s where we start.

  • Emergence Strategic Planning: Focus on Financial Viability

Are You Ready?

 

Our ideal client is an Owner or President of a privately-held, mid-size company who is ready for a roadmap for improvement and growth. They are ready to invest resources; physical, financial, mental, and emotional.

Do any of these scenarios sound like you?

  1. I want to be able to sell my business someday and retire at the beach.

  2. I want to add enough value to the business so that it can fund my retirement.

  3. I want to prepare the business and my children to be able to successfully hand the business off to them in the next 5-10 years.

  4. I want to get the business in a position to sell it to the employees, i.e., offer an ESOP.
