Step 1: Design Your Strategy

First we gather insights on the critical few leadership behaviors that matter most for the performance of your organization.                                            

Our discovery methods include: 

  • Performance Journey Mapping: A map of the current and desired performance management experience
  • Team Diagnostic: A short diagnostic to reveal areas of growth for managers to improve on with their teams 

Armed with insights from this data, we co-create a development strategy and customize our research-backed tools for use by your managers and teams.

Step 2: Develop Your People 

Using the most powerful L&D methods for sustained behavior change, we develop your leaders in the context of real work.                                                  

Our training methods include: 

  • Personalized 1:1 Coaching: Your managers uncover their blind spots and growth edges so that they skillfully develop people and teams. 
  • Manager Circles: Your managers form a powerful peer group learning community to model and practice new behaviors. 
  • Team Coaching Sessions: Your managers apply their new skills in real time on real work with their teams. 

From these experiences, managers and teams develop the capacity to continually assess their assess growth edges, as well as co-design actions and evaluate progress.

Step 3: Profit!

Ok, we couldn't resist. But in all seriousness, we measure the performance, engagement, and growth of your people - which, ultimately, results in profit. 

Our evaluation methods include: 

  • ROI Analysis: A calculation of the business value generated from insights and actions from the experience
  • Team Diagnostic: A review of progress along performance, engagement and growth dimensions
  • Progress on Team Goals: A review of progress made on actual team goals during our time together                                                                      

After this stage, your managers and teams are fully equipped to coach each other for continuous growth and teach these powerful skills to others within your org.
