Employee engagement is the extent to which employees feel passionate about their jobs, are committed to the organization, and put discretionary effort into their work. Our EE programs are a blend of valuable information and vital inspiration designed to grow your employees—where they are with the resources at hand. By reengaging stagnant potential across your organization, you will improve productivity and employee satisfaction, and achieve greater efficiencies across the entire work force.
Without a guiding hand, nearly all cultures will eventually devolve into sub-optimal performance. Hundreds of studies have clearly shown that culture is more powerful than the best strategies, leadership, or technologies. Our inside-out culture change model relieves the pressure from senior leaders who continuously try the academic “top down culture change” process. By focusing on first line supervisors, middle managers, and line personnel, change resistance is overcome and positive culture change becomes organic.
Too often, leaders are hired or promoted with an assumption of their quality and capabilities based on experience, longevity in the organization, education level, or ascension through formal promotions. But none of that is a guarantee of leadership capability or skills. We believe leadership is developed through an intentional growth strategy that accounts for varying personalities, backgrounds, motivations, and personal and organizational goals. Effective leadership is a capability that must be at the ready within all levels of an organization to ensure that every department, team, mission, and task has guidance, resources, and potential to maximize success. Our leadership programs use carefully designed growth strategies that are applicable to every member of an organization, regardless of role, responsibility, or pay grade.
The primary objective of our technical writing work is to remove the barriers that often exist between a document’s intended purpose and its practical usefulness to real people using it in the field. We excel at taking a document or a set of documents and reshaping them around a set of organizational philosophies, policies, and procedures that unifies the administrative and operational aspects of your business. Collaborating with your personnel and subject matter experts, we guide the document development process through a multi-stage process that ensures the project output is organized, resourced, and accessible for everyone in your organization.
