We serve individuals, groups, and organizations in development and transition, including:
Board of Directors
CXOs & Senior Leaders
Teams & Organizations
Individuals in Preparation and Transition (Life and Career)
Boards of Directors
Insight, strategy, and stewardship are mainstays of a Board’s value. During a pandemic, with its pivots, blind alleys, and opportunities, the guidance and engagement of Board members are crucial. While many businesses, will transition successfully, some will fail. Boards who work together to anticipate and pivot in dynamic markets will lead agile transformations.
We bring incisive questions, an ability to surface critical issues, and transformational expertise. Our processes help board members through the thicket of ambiguity that often precedes new directions.
We partner with board members and key executives to align company direction, vision, and communication. We provide ways for members to engage in open discussion of issues and examine new directions. We assess with you the global, economic, and social movements that affect company direction. We improve board dynamics, deliver candid feedback, and increase perspective and performance.
CXOs & Senior Leaders
We help senior leaders expand their abilities and talents and refocus their purpose. They then apply these insights to how they lead their business.
Senior leaders use us as experienced and thoughtful partners, challengers, and guides. Common areas of focus include global leadership, communication, strategy, agility and resilience, board presentations, internal politics, and organizational and personal change.
We provide pre and post-assessments so executives can track both their personal and team milestones for progress. We look at leader performance through eight dimensions on these four axes: 1. Language & Action, 2. Mind & Change, 3. Power & Service, 4. Wisdom & Integrity.
We work with executives interested in a true merger of personal and professional development.
We combine our experience as coaches, consultants, and thought leaders with a leader's aspirations, values, and skills. Through coaching and blended learning, high-potential leaders gain an experienced sounding board and a new understanding of their role as leaders. This may include leading strategically, communicating globally, leveraging latent talents, and mastering mindsets.
Assignments typically last six to nine months encompassing virtual and in-person engagements. Together, we review progress, performance, and results against established goals. The result is a new generation of capable leaders ready to ensure the company’s future.
Every organization has key people who are the lynchpins of effective operations. Their buy-in to a new direction is critical to promoting and surviving inevitable, dynamic change.
We work with you to identify and develop key people that are critical to executing your strategy. Key people progress through customized processes solving difficult problems, meeting goals, and developing staff.
Key people report they enjoy increased influence and responsibility and are better able to communicate throughout the organization.
Teams & Organizations
Some leaders long for a team that runs like a fine watch: precise, consistent, reliable. Yet watches cannot adapt by changing their own parts, setting their own pace, or redefining the meaning of time. Teams and organizations have self-correcting flexibility and resiliency. They adapt. How they adapt is a question of leadership.
We help executives, teams, and organizations assess strategies, deepen and broaden talent, resolve intractable issues, and prepare for future business challenges.
We include three key aspects in all executive team and organization development: 1) global teamwork and collaboration, 2) rapid execution of business issues, and 3) renewed and inspired people focused on goals.
Individuals in Preparation or Transition: Life and Career
We help you discover and think through the assumptions that have run your life, identity, expectations, and potential. Using a series of assessments and processes, we get to the essence of what you want and need. Then, we partner with you as you form the next phase of your life and/or career.
Who We Serve
Our Impact: Testimonials
Kevin was very perceptive about the areas I need to improve in a very short time. His advice was meaningful and spot on in a way that no one has been able to communicate before.
Kevin has great business perspective and experience which he was able to use to demonstrate concepts and apply to my business in ways that were both thoughtful and insightful.
Kevin is very wise and can tell stories to help get his point across. For me that is extremely important to be able to digest his message. I appreciated his style and would welcome an opportunity to work with him again.
The insights and motivation I have gained this week are truly priceless. And I'm committed to evolving my leadership, through using my learnings, to be a better leader.
As an OD consultant and trainer, Kevin was instrumental in creating and delivering a program to help people improve their critical thinking abilities. The results included participants having a much better understanding of how thinking impacts one's response to change, to making judgments which may be inaccurate, to broadening options when challenges occur and to holding one's self to a higher degree of accountability for one's responses. We found the program very helpful in aiding individuals’ movement to higher levels of analysis and assuming more responsibility for their actions in the workplace. For many, the program was a true breakthrough.
I returned from the Beyond Change class and was asked to take on a new assignment managing teams in Israel, Maastricht, and Massachusetts. On the first day, I got an escalation from a member of the Israel team who was VERY upset about a decision that negatively affected him. I decided to meet the escalation head-on. I used the skills we learned in class to walk his island. It was one of the most rewarding interactions I have had with a very upset employee. Thanks for forcing me to go beyond my self-induced limitations with valuable new tools.
I appreciated Kevin's frankness and humor--but above all his diverse industry experience; and how he applied his experience to the challenges I am confronted with.
Kevin is an extraordinary thought leader. He will help you build your personal and organizational capacity in leadership, change, complexity, and globalization in ways that are extraordinary and expansive. Kevin draws on a wide range of innovative tools and approaches using his broad range of knowledge and experience. His focus is always on making sure clients meet their goals.
