Organizational Effectiveness Quiz    « Back to Services

There are three areas we check when looking for improving organizational effectiveness: Is there a unifying idea that takes into account the organization’s DNA and market? Are the internal processes good enough? Are the people engaged? Since people are responsible for the first two elements, that is usually the best place to start.

 Talent Selection, Development and Retention
 Management/Leadership Team Development
 Team Effectiveness Improvement
 Leveraged Thinking Analysis and Strategic Planning
 Strategic Planning Off-Sites
 Executive Coaching

Talent Selection, Development and Retention
Most successful business owners and CEOs know that people are their most valuable asset. However, a large percentage of them don ’t have a systematic effort they trust for selecting (hiring or promoting) developing and retaining top talent. We work with team leaders, HR departments, business owners and leadership teams to de-mystify “right fit” and to create a system for embedding this reality in the organization using proven assessments as a basis.

  • Get the right people in the right seats.
  • Harness the strengths and energy you are already paying for.
  • Adopt a straightforward development process based upon behavioral style and intrinsic motivators.
  • Benchmark key positions based on an ideal instead of on average performance.
  • Increase your return on the investment you are already making in your people.

Management/Leadership Team Development
Often people get promoted out of an area that they are truly passionate and gifted in. People who were excellent engineers now find themselves responsible for the guidance and development of people instead of R&D work. Management matters. What does your organization do to ensure managers are positively influencing employees? Are the right people in the right positions on the right teams?

  • Improve manager’s personal effectiveness
  • Clarifying and leveraging Managers and Employees styles and strengths using appropriate assessments and coaching
  • Creating a work environment that fosters innovation
  • Making better decisions.
  • Leading and developing people

Team Effectiveness Improvement
Team building and effectiveness training are commonplace. What’s different about the way we approach it?

  • Clarifying the maximum impact the team can have on the organization overall
  • Aligning individual’s measurements with organizational objectives.
  • Creating performance requirements that are the intersection of talent + organizational impact + scope
  • Assessment-based communication training that integrates understanding without downplaying the unique strengths brought by each team member

Leveraged Thinking Analysis and Strategic Planning
The Leveraged Thinking approach is based in part on the Theory of Constraints and the work of Eli Goldratt. It represents a logic-based, intuitively checked, systematic approach to

  • Ensure that your improvement investments are the right ones
  • Identify what is most limiting system’s effectiveness and what focus is likely to reveal a system’s greatness
  • Decide on simplest approach to address the problem without compromising on system requirements
  • Clarify and unify a strategic plan focused on the brutal truth instead of hype
  • Get the right people engaged in the implementation

Strategic Planning Off-Sites
This is a great way to get people to focus on one important, major project in a way that delivers a usable result. The emphasis is not on trust-building and ice-breaking, but on gaining clarity on what is, focusing on what is most critical for the organization to address and integrating various aspects of the topic into the whole system. Interestingly, real trust and enthusiasm is built as a result of the process. We have experience in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.
