We Trigger Your Best Instincts
The new organizational environment is more complex, volatile and unpredictable than ever before. With it the skills needed for leadership and employee engagement at all levels have also changed.
Given the organizational complexities, including shifting roles and responsibilities and the continuously changing environment that organizations are facing, our approach to coaching fosters self-awareness and an expanded capacity to think in new ways that leads to people’s ability to grow and develop in ways that have not been required before.
All Harmony coaching engagements are also set within the context of the larger purview of connections in which the coachee operates. With the guidance of the coach the dialogue with others is a vehicle for enlarging the thinking process of the coachee in real time and fosters a desire by the coachee to stretch, learn and develop in new ways.
Harmony applies solid approaches of organizational consulting gained over the last 30 years of consulting combined with the latest thinking about what creates inspired cultures, leadership and employee engagement.
We use all of the tools of organizational change with a difference. No matter what we do with you … whether we are training, providing workshops and seminars, coaching, facilitating, engaging you in process redesign, we are always doing it with the aim of creating a truly inspired organization.
Can your organization seize opportunity out of market turbulence … reset, turn and rapidly innovate? Can you create your future rather than simply responding to the past? The need to make monumental changes and adjustments in response to shifts in the market place is obvious but the how-to eludes many organizations.
We work with you to create an organizational climate in which inspired collective intelligence is routine and self-sustaining…. a climate where natural leadership is nourished and developed. We help you to leverage your organization’s best thinking and help you translate your organization’s vision into everyday attitudes and behaviors.
We use a systemic approach approach called leading from the inside out. We help you recognize, connect and inspire the natural leaders that already exist throughout your organization. They become the leading edge of emergent, high performance to keep commitment energized until it is second nature and a shift occurs. New ways of doing business become the norm at all levels.
As we focus you on your social networks, your social capital, the quality of your conversations, your engagement processes and even your individual thinking, we are teaching you to trigger the best instincts, both individually and collectively. Our facilitation services include:
- Conflict resolution
- Team building
- Working with product development teams as they improve speed to market
- Process redesign
- Meetings of all types
- Shifting breakdowns into breakthroughs
What if you discovered that you are leveraging only three quarters of the available thinking power in your organization? Would you decide to waste it? Believe it or not, research shows that most companies leave twenty six percent of their collective intelligence on the table. They not only don’t use it, they don’t even know that it is available. They are paying for good minds and then wasting twenty-five percent of the resource.
Waste of any kind, of course, degrades the bottom line. But waste of high quality collective thought can undermine the ability to quickly reset your strategy and seize opportunities that competitors miss.
Harmony’s training offerings can provide the tools to create a corporate culture that leverages your collective wisdom top to bottom and from the inside out. Backing it up with 30 years of experience, we know how to set you on a course in which the best minds are ensuring your company’s brightest future.
