Human Resource and Leadership Development
Creating leaders through clear thinking
Our clients need to develop leaders throughout their organizations who have the ability to lead teams through collaboratively solving difficult problems, making complex decisions, and implementing strategic change.
Kepner-Tregoe’s proven, data-driven thinking processes are the foundation of effective leadership. We significantly increase the capability of individuals and teams to think clearly together, with a common language and process. Once they become proficient, they can resolve even the most complex issues confronting the organization.
Areas of Need
Leaders, managers, and teams set priorities, solve problems, make decisions, and execute plans. Yet they are rarely taught a systematic process for doing these core activities.
Collaboration and community-based approaches to solve day-to-day operational problems are “the way of the future.” Yet teams often struggle when they do not have a common approach for resolving issues together.
As the complexity of technology and operations continues to increase, the need for effective solutions to high-impact, high-urgency, mission-critical problems becomes paramount. It’s necessary for leaders to be able to separate assumptions from facts in order to quickly get to the root cause of a problem.
Managers are taught to delegate and “empower” their people. Yet, companies set up self-directed work teams without providing them the knowledge, skills, and support infrastructure to be successful.
It is through decisions that we influence the direction of a business. Yet leaders are often dissatisfied with the quality and speed of their people's decision making and follow-through.
When individuals and teams are confronted by multiple issues, they often try to take them all on at once. Because they are overwhelmed, they make progress on none of them. The result: inertia and a lack of change.
