According to the 2017 Gallup State of the American Workforce report, employees felt their team leaders were poor communicators, not trust-worthy, did not generate enthusiasm about the future, did not listen, respect, or value their opinions, and were leading ineffectively overall.
As experts in human behavior with 30+ years of experience, we have proven that focusing on internal growth on the individual level is what leads to deep, impactful change that lasts. This is what makes us different.
Most leadership development programs inadvertently focus on the wrong part of the brain—the neocortex—which grasps concepts and logic and governs analytical and technical ability. Thus, material from programs like these is often quickly forgotten, resulting in wasted time and money.
While our programs do leverage the neocortex, our primary focus is on the limbic system, which governs feelings, impulses and drives. In other words, our programs appeal to the heart, not just the head. Because of this, our training is much more integral and is therefore retained by default. Think stories vs. studies—which do you remember more easily?
Additionally, our programs use a combination of human behavioral sciences such as neuroscience, emotional intelligence, unconscious bias, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which we use as our fundamental model. Our Awareness Transformation Model™ uses a transformative 4-stage approach to create new habits: 1) Learn; 2) Apply; 3) Reflect; and 4) Share.
Our goal is to transform your team leaders into highly self-aware, emotionally-intelligent, and truly effective leaders who will earn the respect of their people without having to leverage their title or position. They will attract, build and lead teams that are self-aware, engaged, and high-performing, and your organization will thrive.
