TEAM ALIGNMENT AND CULTURAL CHANGE

Organizational Consulting, Cultural Change and Team Alignment

When an organization works well as a team, the overall organization is more successful. We help teams to reach their full potential by creating clarity about mission, alignment on goals and objectives and developing an environment in which team members can thrive.

We partner expertly with the Human Resources department or senior leadership to address your organizational needs and define desired outcomes. We develop a clear understanding of the corporate context, get to know the individual leaders and the team members and identify underlying team dynamics to custom design effective organizational programs within your organization.  Ideas and initiatives are co-created with the organization to ensure the greatest impact within the provided parameters.

Our organizational consulting focuses on understanding the inner-workings of a team and often is rooted in Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ).  C-IQ is based on Neuroscience research and introduces new frameworks and tools for creating higher levels of trust, activating greater levels of engagement, strengthening partnerships, and catalyzing co-creation and innovation in relationships, teams and cultures.
