We offer a comprehensive framework to improve performance and increase engagement. The framework includes several distinct offerings. We can support you with a single offering or co-create a roadmap to implement the entire framework.
Help People Grow™
Individual performance management
Engagement is low for many reasons. A story that motivates us involves an employee who was reduced to tears in a performance review with a new manager. Turns out the emotion was due to this being the person’s first performance review during 25 years with the same company. We can do better than this.
To increase engagement we need to Help People Grow, personally and professionally. Helping people grow is the true test of leadership according to Robert Greenleaf. If leaders support their teams employees have:
- clear expectations of what needs to be done and acceptable ways of doing it
- ongoing feedback and performance conversations
- solid development plans set with ‘complete goals’
- opportunities to develop the skills and capabilities important to them
Achieve More Goals™
Do you spend time setting goals that your team is unable to deliver? Research shows that teams are much more likely to achieve a goal if they write it down. Imagine what happens when you develop specific, measurable goals and then go through a thorough exercise to map out the key supporting lines between teams, ensuring that critical dependencies are understood.
When supporting lines between teams are visible, understood and agreed the results are truly profound. One client achieved 100% of its goals the first quarter we implemented the Achieve More Goals™ framework. We will help your team set Complete Goals™ … and achieve more of them.
Data driven insights to improve performance and increase engagement
Maybe, like many organizations, you conduct engagement surveys. But how do you use your data? Do you use it to surface issues and then create authentic action items that help drive future improvements? Do you communicate those actions to the organization and follow up? Are you able to determine if your organization lives its leadership principles? Have you considered all facets of your data to pinpoint deeper underlying issues?
We will use your engagement data to gauge your team’s work engagement and assess whether you have a supportive leadership environment. Our insights help clients uncover ways to improve performance and increase engagement. We help leaders focus their efforts on the right challenges.
Leading with SupportingLines™
Leadership development that builds from strengths
Only 17% of CEOs believe they have the team required to deliver their strategic plan. Not surprisingly, 90% of organizations fail to deliver their strategic plan. Given the competition for top talent, developing leadership talent from within is an imperative. We offer leadership development and executive coaching that is contextual to your organization, provokes deep insight and helps people develop their leadership superpowers.
We help leaders lead with supporting lines, not reporting lines.
If you are interested, we also offer a SupportingLines Yoga for Leaders program to support leaders in their development journey. Many leaders have yoga or meditation on their personal goals list. Our workshops and free public classes help you develop a daily personal practice to increase focus, cultivate compassion, enhance wellness and support their personal leadership journey.
SupportingLines Yoga for Leaders™
Powerful practices to support leadership development
Do you take enough time out of your busy schedule for your own personal wellness and development? Many leaders aspire to establish or deepen a regular yoga or meditation practice – and for good reason. These practices have been shown to cultivate focus, empathy and resilience.
In short, a spiritual practice will improve your leadership.
The highest level of leadership is seldom, if ever achieved without a long term spiritual practice
— Bob Anderson, Founder of the Leadership Circle.
