Solutions

  • LEADERSHIP AND TEAM DEVELOPMENT

    Working with banks, marketing departments, IT shops, law firms, and many other kind of organizations, we understand that leadership can be a mysterious thing, especially for new managers and even more mature ones.

    Everything DiSC tools zero in on clear definitions and help team members adopt a common language that promotes everyone working together to everyone's benefit, productivity, and profitability. Understanding and applying team dynamics is at the very center of going home happy at the end of a good day's work.

  • THE RIGHT FIT

    Getting the position accurately nailed down is Job One, what we call specifications and descriptions!

    Making sure the individual's knowledge, skills, and abilities fit the recipe completes the assignment. What often gets in the way is failing to rigorously examine the patients and relaxing selection standards, settling for the better candidate rather than the right one.

    Fit is not only a matter of hard skills; it is more importantly a matter of attitude, behavior, and culture. The proof of the pudding here is that terminations are more often a result of the latter.

    Helping new and existing team members understand organizational culture and behavioral is essential to effective team performance. Granted it takes time and energy to dig into these mercurial aspects of work life. We see the real results of this in professional organizations like medical practices and law firms to financial institutions and advertising agencies. You'll see it too.

  • CONFLICT

    Leading and managing people is often a conflict-loaded process.

    The natural human tendency to avoid addressing conflict is just that--"natural"--and almost always a mistake.

    Training leaders, managers, and employees in early conflict recognition, diagnosis, and resolution is a powerful workplace tool. It minimizes discomfort, complaints, and water cooler gossip. Yet unfortunately our inclination to put off dealing with the inevitable adds to the pressure and stress of getting the job done each day and feeling good about it.

    "People do what they do because they don't know what else to do." Teaching them about behavioral differences and how to minimize the results of unresolved conflict not only makes for a happier workplace; it also improves performance and profitability.

  • COMPENSATION PLANNING & PROGRAMS

    Control your largest expense and provide a fair, consistent system to reward your employees by installing base salary and incentive compensation programs that are easy to administer and maintain.

    As one of the fundamental cornerstones of your Human Resource Management, be sure internal job relationships are aligned and your pay practices are equitable and fair.

    Provide managers and supervisors the tools to have productive conversations on pay and performance and, in the end, improve individual performance and organizational effectiveness!

  • POLICY DEVELOPMENT: EMPLOYEE HANDBOOKS & MANAGERS GUIDES

    Develop employee handbooks and human resource manuals or individual policies that promote regulatory compliance while reflecting your management and organizational values.

    Save time and energy and avoid reinventing the wheel with balanced, well thought-out policies, procedures, and practices that improve communications, productivity, and profits!

  • EMPLOYMENT TRANSITION COUNSELING & SUPPORT SERVICES

    Receive professional support in managing staff reductions, reorganization, or a poor job fit while reducing legal exposure and staff anxiety.

    Give your managers and staff an essential level of comfort in dealing with difficult decisions and conversations related to managing significant job and life changes!
