How's your life going?
“How we spend our days, is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Annie Dillard, Pulitzer prize winning author
How’s your life going?
Are you stuck in the same job with golden handcuffs?
Are you dreaming of that next big promotion and have no idea how to grab the brass ring?
Is your head hitting the glass ceiling?
Are you clueless about what else you could be doing?
You’re not alone!
According to Gallup polls, over 70% of Americans feel disengaged from their work despite multiple changes. And, they work about 47 hours or more a week, which is like working 6 days a week. Figuring out what you want or need to do next is not your specialty – it’s ours.
Stop trying to do this alone. Let's collaborate.
Do you feel like your company’s meetings would make great copy for a Saturday Night Live sketch?
Do meetings keep you from doing your real work?
Are you committed to mining your employee's highest potential?
Does your culture foster learning and innovation? Are risks rewarded, or do people go along just to get along?
Are you a leadership team newly forming or an already existing team that seeks a jolt of innovative and synergistic thinking?
Let us help you talk constructively and openly about processes, people and profits/results. Learn how to skillfully name the elephant(s) in the room.
Speak truth to power at work, without fear.
Name the cultural taboos.
Share your ideas inside the meeting.
Get some good work done, together.
“When Grace began working with us to develop a new strategic plan for our Foundation, we knew that we were getting a consultant who came with rave reviews. What we didn’t know was that these reviews understated the incredible quality of her work. Grace is not just smart, but insightful and has an innate ability to cut through the noise and get to the heart of an issue. She also doesn’t shy from asking challenging questions about issues that need to be raised. Because of her experience, Grace also knows to pivot quickly when necessary, which leads to a very efficient process.”
Tony Cipollone, (Former) President & CEO, John T. Gorman Foundation
