Six Steps to Resolution

Our Leadership Programs & Workshops

Introductory Leadership Workshops & Seminars -> Dealing With Difficult People, Developing Your Emotional IQ, and Change Management: A Survival Guide.

We employ an initial process of collaboration, diagnosis, and design to match our diverse set of tools and services to your organizational challenges.

Performance Preferences -> Discover your "performance default" and understand how the six "preferences" impact your leadership team.

The Action Wheel Leadership System is based on the assertion that every human action is based on six dimensions of action. For goals to be achieved, and missions to be fulfilled, each dimension must be addressed:

• Existence - "What is the current reality?"

• Resources - "What do we need?"

• Structure - "How will we do this?"

• Power - "Who is driving this?"

• Mission - "Where are we going?"

• Meaning -"Why are we doing this?"

 Leadership Assessment and Workshop -> Your team, group or entire organization will complete an online leadership assessment. The results will graphically reveal the strengths and weakness that affect your leadership. 

Leadership Alignment -> Using information from the leadership assessment your team will create a specific and actionable plan to  create alignment and enhance performance. 

90% of all leadership solutions begin “above the line” in Meaning, Mission, and Power. 90% of leadership’s time is typically spent “below the line” in Existence, Resources and Structure. 

Building Trust -> Build a culture of trust within your organization. Discover where trust has been lost and how it can be regained. This seminar begins with our 30 question Trust Assessment.  

Types of Decision Making -> You, and your organization, will become adept at making decisions based on six identifiable action steps.  Use this decision - making model in your professional and personal life. 

Problem Solving -> Use the Action Wheel process to frame and resolve any issue. Answer the question: "what is really going on."
