Building
Executive Teams

Superb individual leadership is necessary but insufficient in today’s world. Executives must not only manage their own parts of the business, but also come together to lead and take mutual accountability for the success of the entire enterprise. Only when those at the top role model true collaboration can they expect the rest of their organizations to do the same.

Guiding
Organizational Change

Change in today’s VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) cannot be “managed.” The traditional change frameworks, tools, and mindsets may be helpful but Conversations are critical. Neil believes successful change emerges through deep and meaningful conversations throughout the organization. And with his expertise in large group interventions, change can happen much more quickly than you might imagine.

Creating the
Strengths-Based Workplace

Peter Drucker, the father of modern management said; “The task of leadership is to create an alignment of strengths in ways that make a system’s weaknesses irrelevant.”

Deep inquiry into what works well and designing an organization to get more out of those strengths taps into creativity, passion, and the desire to succeed. Such a strengths-based workplace leads to lasting engagement throughout the entire business and therefore greater success.
