In spite of rapid change, some things shouldn't change, like being CLEAR about your organization's Purpose. These were translated into the vision, mission, values and goals for the enterprise. 20 years ago, effective leaders developed 5 year strategic plans and all business practices based on them. Technology development and customer demands make that "old school" thinking. Today the pace of innovation requires continual evaluation of the keystones of your foundation and remodeling of your business structure accordingly. The vital components are your strategic plans, business goals, performance objectives, technology tools, company values, communication methods, learning processes, cyber security measures, profitability models, legal defenses and more. We view your enterprise from a wholistic perspective andhelp you create and revise elements of your foundation that are missing or need to change. No shaky foundation here!
Following the rethinking of your organization's mission, vision, values & goals on a regular basis, leaders must do strategic planning to ensure they are aligned and integrated with all systems, processes, procedures, technology and talent on which the organization is built. Successful organizations will have a culture of change readiness, organizational flexibility, self-leadership and continual improvement for short and long-term success. Some consultants say "think outside of the box" but don't tell you how to do it. We say "Get rid of the box!" Two heads are better than one when developing innovative processes. Creativity, research, group brainstorming and expert advice are all required. It starts with accurate identification of your needs, strategic objectives, desired outcomes and available resources. We help you clarify these and developinnovative practices, processes and a culture of continual fresh thinking and leading edge outcomes.

Business silos (or departments) within a company may not work optimally anymore.

Together we can evaluate potential restructuring of your organization to realize greater efficiencies that result in rapid communication, decreased costs, improved employee & client satisfaction and out performance of your competition!
Most employers are aware that employees, especially Millenials, highly value having adaptable work arrangements like telecommuting, flexible hours, virtual project teams, job sharing, sabbatical or parental leave and paid/unpaid time off. The benefits of workplace flexibility are greater employee satisfaction, productivity, recruitment and retention. Equally important is building a culture of resilience, cross-training, collaboration (tools), virtual data availability, continual recruitment and optimal efficiency which creates a flexible business that can withstand and manage ever-present change. Both are critical to business success in our highly competitive economy. We can assess and bolster your company’s workplace flexibility and build organizational resilience and change readiness capabilities.
