Engagements

  • Fast-growing medical firm was experiencing leadership challenges; docs were not held accountable, staff were uncertain of roles. We started with an organizational assessment and diagnosis, sharing the data and agreeing on an approach. We led a strategic planning session resulting in an aligned vision and critical priorities around which the staff organized. Business lines were identified; the organization was re-structured with new key roles. The results were greater efficiency and more streamlined offerings.
  • Facilitated post-merger transition of two organizations of 700+ employees. Identified critical break-downs in communications that were leading to overwork, redundancy, and uncertainty in employees. Working with the top management team, facilitated training, planning and actions to resolve the most important issues resulting in a more productive and cohesive workforce. Success was evident; Board of Directors was so pleased with progress they requested on-going involvement and consultation.
  • Facilitated this newly created start-up financial services firm in strategic planning and team development. Worked with the President on top management roles, training on communications, influence, and decision-making. Organization grew revenues over 50% during duration of engagement.
  • Communications between employees and management had spiraled downward due to downsizing and other factors.
