Keep your best people around

The data is clear: employees don’t leave companies and jobs—they leave managers and leaders. We provide your people the skills they need to motivate, engage, develop, and retain your talent.

Among millennial employees who are likely to leave their employers within the next two years, 71% are unhappy with how their leadership skills are being developed. – Deloitte Millennial Survey 2016

Deepen your talent bench

Smart organizations seek to promote from within. We help you develop new managers, emerging leaders, and mid-level executives to make sure you can meet the needs of an evolving organization.

The US Department of Labor estimates that, on average, it costs one-third of a new hire’s annual salary to replace them.

Drive collaboration, engagement, and innovation

What does it take for teams to do their best work, and do it across functions and departments? We help your people own responsibilities, solve problems, and leverage the power of conflict to strengthen relationships, drive results, and produce greatness together.

Highly-engaged teams are 18% more productive and 12% more profitable than disengaged teams in the same organization. – Gallup Organization Q12 Survey

Be ready for change

We all know the saying: change is the only constant. Whether you are adapting to a transforming market or undergoing a significant merger, restructuring, or life stage transition—or want to be ready when change comes—we help your people prepare for change, make the most of its challenges, and develop the mindsets and skillsets they’ll need to operate in new environments.
 

Changes of any sort succeed or fail on the basis of whether the people affected do things differently. Do the employees let go of the old way of doing things, [effectively navigate] that difficult time between the old and the new, and come out doing things the new way? – Managing Transitions
