We encourage leading from
the head, heart, and gut.
Then get out of the way.
No wants wants to be dependent on an outside consultant to drive improvement. We don’t want that either. Our approach to continuous process improvement starts with the end in mind.
The very first question we ask in any engagement is, “who do we need to develop and empower to own improvement once we are gone?” Often times, solving problems is as simple as unleashing the creative potential of your organization’s workforce by encouraging people to bring their whole selves to work – improving from the head, the heart, and the gut.
Empowerment is essential to any transformation.
Start where you are.
When you empower others to participate, you get an honest and accurate reflection of where you currently are. Not where you think you are. Or where you think you should be. But a real assessment of where you are and what is possible.
Change happens by the people, not to the people.
When you empower others to participate, you get more ideas than you could possibly act on. And improvement just don’t occur through projects. It begins to occur through everyday activities, as people find ways to add value in little ways, which add up to big results.
When you empower others to participate, not only are your results better, they are sustained longer. Because the ideas behind each change came from the people who do the work, accountability to implement the ideas and sustain the ideas will be higher.
We believe wholeheartedly that the answers to your organization’s biggest problems exist somewhere, in someone’s head, already inside your organization.
All you have to do is empower them to share it.
When organizations partner with us, they are often seeking to improve their results by solving a complex problem that is hampering their performance and pursuit of their most important goals.
When it comes to problem-solving we believe in acting as an “idea farmer”, helping to harvest the ideas that already exist within your organization.
