How We Work
The major focus of our work is results -- what you know must happen in order for your company to succeed and grow.
But you'll get more than results. You'll also receive the clarity that comes from a powerful focus on the vital few priorities that you and your people must achieve. With us you'll build a culture based on accountability and trust -- one in which people enjoy contributing to a winning team.
The kinds of results our clients achieve
A cure for dysfunctional teams We generate teams that head in the same direction, focused on the results they want to achieve rather than getting lost in the forest. They are able to communicate honestly with one another, have dissolved their fear of conflict -- and they don't accept excuses from one another. Above all, they have cured what Patrick Lencioni calls the Five Dysfunctions of a Team.
A culture of accountability In other words, a performance culture in which a positive peer pressure exists -- delivering what we promised is the way we work around here! Strategies and plans no longer get dusty on the shelf. Behavior and attitudes are healthy and motivation is high - we're winning!
The results you want and need Most businesses try to do more than they can do well. Our clients develop and align on a one-page plan that includes the lessons they need to learn, their vision for the year, major focus and the top ten priorities for the year. We work with them through the year, using Monthly Review Sessions and our online tracking system to guarantee that they are staying on track to their best year yet.
Leaders and managers with a strong commitment No longer is energy wasted on politics, paralysis by analysis or meetings that don't matter. The thinking is done and the plan is made. Everyone on the team and in the business has bought into it - because they helped to create it. People will not destroy that which they have helped to create.
Why we achieve these kinds of results
We appreciate that these are incredible claims, but we have a 25-year track record of achieving just these kinds of tangible and intangible results with our clients.
The Best Year Yet system is based on a solid foundation of individual and organizational transformation. We make sure that you and your entire team take stock of what's been happening, learn from it and then work with you all to make sure these lessons are put into practice. Together we investigate the limiting assumptions and paradigms that are holding you back and shift these to a more useful and inspiring vision.
This process, culminating in the alignment on the top ten goals for the coming year, creates a simple yet powerful focus. Our Program Leaders then work in partnership with you for a full year to ensure that you achieve your plan while making sure you learn the lasting secrets of producing results along the way.
