Talent Management Consulting

  • The workplace dynamics and marketplace for talent resources continues to evolve. 
  • Due to changes in demographics, political and social economic landscape, the demand by businesses for success has become more challenging.
  • Business models for productivity are changing due to significant Artificial Intelligence technological advances.
  • Educating employees how to effectively work well with culture and management of people is at an all-time low.

Our team of Talent Management consultants have over 15 years of diverse talent management experience working with companies to build success.

Service offerings

The workplace is being impacted by external forces from the changing marketplace and figuring out how to respond to it is at issue.  Our solutions include:

  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy development.
  • Company action plans to align with strategic goals.
  • Corporate governance and policy development.
  • Strategies to build social capital through affinity organizations, training/coaching for senior leaders and managers.
  • Culture assessment and development of action plans.
  • Leadership development and coaching for success.

Why is this important?

Executives often do not see the importance of having the right people at the decision table to execute their strategic plan for the company.  When we think we are missing some new perspective and talent in the organization, often it is not about scouring the market to hire a new player to round out the team.  More importantly it is looking within the organization to ensure leaders have the alignment, focus, passion, drive and discipline to execute at all levels.  Executives need to unite their team members and have everyone focused on using the same strategic imperatives to drive metrics within the organization which will provide a stronger platform for sustained success.

We Provide Solutions

We go beyond ‘good ideas’ and build real skills - the skills for excellence.  Our training is simulation based, and experiential. It facilitates transformative learning to generate new structures for how your employees think and act. We equip your team to move past mediocre and into excellence.

We help you establish a culture where people are trustworthy, effective, and engaged - where team members align, collaborate, commit and innovate – and where leaders know how to make these things happen.

Our Training Solutions

Our processes develop team excellence through simulation-based and experiential learning, including:

  • Building more effective leaders/team members and driving high performance in communication using kinesthetic (the sensation of movement) processes.
  • Engaging excellence in cross functional collaboration through breakthrough conversations.
  • Utilizing reflective and experiential processes to develop high-trust teams.

Working through these hands on processes, our outcomes include:

  • Improved team collaboration using kinesthetic activities to hard-wire learning into long-term memory.
  • A foundation of trust created through reflection and team-based activities.
  • Leadership to consistently move the strategic plan forward.

These specialized activities take ideas from concepts and put them into a physical experience to build skills and behaviors necessary for growth and success. Through the sensation of movement, kinesthetic engagement yields transformative learning, generating ways your employees think and act. Together, we foster a culture of trust - where team members align, collaborate, commit and innovate.
