Innovative Leadership Consulting
Do your leaders see people and operations as they think they are or do they see them as they truly are? What are they afraid of?
Imagine, two skiers are atop a challenging black diamond run. They sport upscale apparel and top of the line gear. One is having the best day ever, the other the absolute worst day ever. Why would one be in a euphoric state, dancing with the mountain; while the other trembles with cold sweat, about to soil those designer pants?
One is in the grip of fear. The other has befriended fear.
For over two decades, Barry Moniak has inspired team leaders to face, then embrace and befriend, whatever fears hold them back from doing something extraordinary. Leaders uncover preconceived notions toward teammates and begin to appreciate the differences that make each a unique contributing member.
His unique systematic methodology identifies strengths and weaknesses in your existing system and culture. He helps you integrate innovative solutions that create winning synergistic teams that produce results far greater and more profitable than individual efforts ever could.
There is a progressive sequence to this. Each of the following three components is prerequisite to the next:
Assessment | Strategic Planning
A GPS first determines your exact location. Then, when given a specific destination, it plots your route, keeps you on course, and affords you a constant ETA.
Similarly, End in Mind’s professional assessment determines precisely where you are regarding your organizational systems and culture and inherent institutional fears. A strategic plan is then designed and implemented with short and long range objectives, timelines, appropriate accountability protocols, and final destination ETA.
Education | Training
Your training is enhanced exponentially when people are educated before they are trained. Relevant education about systems and interactions, therefore, is prerequisite to effective training on teamwork and operations.
Traditional academic models give everyone the same information and instruction, at the same time, in the same way. In order to create a culture, where your people actually befriend the fear of enhanced knowledge and advanced skills, we must accommodate individual learning styles and methods of application.
Coaching | Facilitation
Most organizations recognize the need for highly functional, interdependent teams, yet few have had the experience of being professionally coached to be team players.
People learn together and grow faster as a team when feedback is provided in real time rather than stale review. This style of facilitation enhances team perspective and builds coordinated interdependence where teams actually befriend challenges that other teams fear. The result? Synergistic, profitable outcomes.
Black Diamond Leadership Coaching
The establishment of a winning innovative culture that befriends the fears that hold other organizations back, begins with the mind-set of its leaders – the ones with personal power, not just position power.
Understanding how each leader is wired to meet organizational and team challenges is critical; however, discovering this in a group setting is problematic. Leaders need time, personal attention, and private space to analyze and challenge their own perspectives and prejudices; understand and value the thoughts, feelings and fears of others above, beneath and beside them…
This process is best facilitated through one-on-one leadership coaching.
In the midst of organizational enhancement, private executive coaching affords key leaders the opportunity to decide in private how they will show up in public. This is especially important, when dealing with serious or delicate situations.
Executive coaching equips individuals with the strategies necessary to lead a truly synergistic, innovative organization that leans into the fears that other enterprises shy away from.
