We strive to bridge the gap between "what frustrates
leaders". . .
and "what keeps employees from being inspired,
highly functioning team members."
It all starts with an organizational assessment.
What is an Organizational Assessment?
An organizational assessment is just what it sounds like. Much like you go to a doctor to routinely check your physical health, an organizational assessment allows us to check the overall health of your organization. A good doctor wouldn't recommend surgery without first prescribing labs, x-rays, etc. And we wouldn't prescribe wide-scale training without first assessing all the other components that make an organization successful.
We start by assessing the overall health of your organization
with a focus on people and processes.
Here's the deal, you don't want to waste money changing people or processes if you don't have the right team members in place to execute on those processes. Alternatively, you don't want to send your employees to training if the problem is actually your processes. An organizational assessment allows us to determine exactly what is preventing your organization from achieving your goals and targeting a solution to bridge the gap.
. . . and then we work with you to fix it.
We do this by creating a custom-tailored plan to
bridge the gap as quickly as possible with
minimal disruption to the workforce.
The most impactful solution may be to work directly with you and/or a few of your leaders. The solution may include a multi-prong approach to change some of your processes and find the best players for your team. Or we might create development programs specifically for your team. Whatever the solution, rest assured it's been customized for your organization.
