WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Your organization has something in common with every other: to achieve your goals, you need the right culture and people who fit that culture. Our passion is charting companies' long-term success through talent management practices that reinforce existing culture strengths and that help to change cultural norms that have impeded corporate performance. Research shows that culture significantly impacts the performance of a company, and our mission is to help each client create a game plan to ensure a robust culture that supports the business strategy.

HOW WE CAN HELP


Sometimes a culture misalignment is obvious. Sometimes it's more subtle. In either case, objectivity and experience will get you a lot further than a heated session around the board room table. Our approach is a start-to-finish partnership. Not: infiltrate, dictate and disappear. To learn how our process targets your needs, click on each section above.

BREAKING THROUGH "BITCH"

Breaking Through Bitch Book by Carol Vallone Mitchell Book Cover Image Photo

We can hear you saying, “Are you kidding me? Why would I want to read yet another book on leadership?” Here’s why: Breaking Through “Bitch” is the only book that hits head-on why women leaders cannot and should not “act like men.” Although they demonstrate many of the same leadership competencies, successful women demonstrate them differently than men. And that difference makes all the difference!

Our deep expertise in defining what makes leaders successful has led us to recognize that the different challenges women face require a different roadmap for success. Breaking Through “Bitch” lays out that roadmap – the Women’s Leadership Blueprint™ – and shows how you – whether you are a woman or a man – can use it to create a culture that fosters collaboration and innovation in today’s fast-changing world.

With humor, a positive outlook, and compellingly-conveyed stories and research, this is an easy, enjoyable read. It is not your typical business book!

They achieved great results but were “let go” from their senior posts. Why? They were all labeled smart but difficult, unapproachable, and intimidating – traits that have also been associated with a long line of successful male editors. What does this say about the newsroom culture? Can women lead in this kind of culture where being aggressive and demanding are necessary for a leader but not tolerated from a woman?

BALLMER'S CHANGE MANDATE - HOW LIKE-MINDED ARE MICROSOFT EXECUTIVES?

By Carol Mitchell

Each individual on the senior team likely has their own interpretation of what will create Ballmer’s “One Microsoft” and what the new culture should look like. The challenge here is to understand where they are “like-minded” and where they are “divergent” in their thinking…
