What I Do
Organizational Dynamics Assessments
Visiting your organization is the most effective way to develop an understanding of your company’s strengths and issues. Observing your planning meetings, interviewing your people and reviewing your policies reveal patterns, problems, possibilities. From this spring board, we’ll work together to identify areas where you can maximize capacity, reduce wasted effort, and boost motivation and morale. Call or email me for a free mini consultation to discuss what you’ve observed and how we might work together to increase your organization’s capacity.
Coaching by Phone
If you are transitioning in your management role–new to management or taking on broader responsibilities, I can coach you. Some of my clients have specific issues, others look to me as a sounding board, mentor, and advisor. I will work with you to clarify what sort coaching fits for you, and your situation. Call or email me to discuss coaching.
I offer several workshops to help you build a strong foundation for thriving agile teams, understand the unique dynamics of self-organizing teams, and boost team productivity.
I also design and lead experiential workshops customized to your needs, goals, and unique situation. Call me or send me an email so we can discuss how an experiential workshop can lead to insights and action in your organization.
Problem Solving Leadership (PSL)
I also teach leadership with my partners Jerry Weinberg and Johanna Rothman. We believe that leadership is the key to building a healthy organization that can deal effectively with change. We teach that leadership is the ability to create an environment that enables everyone to contribute productively. We focus on process rather than procedure, on personal effectiveness rather than prescriptive strategies. Read more about PSL.
Each year, I speak at several public and internal conferences. Get in touch to arrange a high impact talk at your company.
