Guiding You Out of the Chaos

Leaders have the remarkable privilege of leading teams of individuals to accomplish great outcomes.  Yet nothing about this task is easy.  Leadership is challenging, complex, frustrating and still enormously rewarding.  In today’s leadership environment the pace of change and growth is dizzying and the expectation to keep pace with it all can be debilitating.

That’s where we come in.

We begin by getting to know you and your team. Through conversations and assessments we’ll do a deep dive into your organization seeking to gain perspective on who you are, where you’ve been, and where you’re going. We’ll observe culture, team dynamics, how you think, and how you work.

The combination of your history, knowledge and intuition coupled with our observations, perspective and experience will guide the next steps of our process. We’ll build a pathway of consulting catered to your needs and goals.

Two-Fold Focus

Culture

Culture is the crux of your organization. If you don’t have a strong, healthy team that trusts and supports one another any plan you build will be destined to fail. Culture is the heartbeat of your team. Culture is who you are and how you work. Great culture will cause great people to clamor to work for your organization.

But cultures have to be nurtured and purposefully developed. Everything you do every day as a leader is either building or eroding culture. If your culture is strong, we’ll help you identify processes to keep it going in the right direction. If your culture needs some attention, we’ll help you develop a plan to get your team culture healthy and vibrant again.

Strategy

Routine can overtake us and before long we realize we’re crazy busy but we can no longer define the end goal.  Strategy is core to your progress.  Using the Paterson StratOp Process we’ll take your team through an extensive exercise to build a strategic plan that is deeply embedded in your organization and becomes an overflow of your daily work.  Strategy shouldn’t be an addendum to your team’s job descriptions.  It should define everything you do.
