“I was engaged in a heated conversation with a colleague. Jeff interrupted us and read back the gist of what each of us was saying. Turns out we were in what he called “violent agreement.” Jeff used just the right touch to teach us a lesson I’ll not soon forget.” – Banking EVP
We convert teams of leaders into leadership teams
We engage teams in the challenging work of moving from being a team of leaders – to be a Leadership Team. This involves clarifying team purpose, overcoming competing loyalties and commitments, identifying the gap between the team’s aspiration and its current performance, working through the obstacles to improved performance – including the “undiscussables” the team hasn’t yet been able to address and identifying the plan and goals to assess and exploit the new capabilities. This is where we most often employ our “balcony consulting” approach.
