– There is innate potential and wisdom within each of us, that when unleashed and connected with the whole, can release powerful creativity and innovation.
– Human systems grow in the direction of what they most persistently, actively and collectively ask questions about. When they focus on human ideals and achievements, peak experiences and best practices, these things tend to flourish. When we organize around problems, we structure solutions around the problems instead of the desired future.
– Organizations change fastest and best when their members are excited about where they are going, have a clear plan for moving forward and feel confident about their ability to reach their destination.
– Change will occur, with greater engagement, if we can get to shared meaning
Today’s individuals/families/leaders need to be clear on who they are, what they stand for, and why they do what they do. Tillie’s coaching emphasizes self-awareness. While many executive coaches focus primarily on the external challenges, I help leaders discover and act from their authentic self. This naturally evolves to identifying strategies and the development of Personal Holistic Wellness Plans that will resonate with managers and employees in the organization.
Coaching of managers and supervisors often focuses on how to develop and lead their staff in ways that inspire and bring out their full potential. Managers who have risen through the ranks because of their high performance and operational mastery often do not have the skills and awareness to grow and develop their employees. Fortunately, this can be learned. Tillie will work with you to expand your leadership repertoire to include essential people development skills to ensure full engagement and commitment over the long term.
Evolved Whole Hearted Leadership
How many of your managers are truly equipped and prepared to lead your company into its future? Tillie partners with her clients to create a customized program so that managers at all levels become true leaders. Key features include the translation of the company’s core values into measurable behaviors, solving current organizational challenges, skill development, and the creation of best practices. This program will create a powerful foundation of shared experience, common language, and internal cohesion that will have a ripple effect throughout the organization. By solving actual company challenges, this program has a built-in return on investment.
Small, cross-unit teams of leaders are created for mutual accountability, coaching, and support throughout the program. Our action learning model includes development of skills such as the leader as coach, emotional intelligence, conflict management, and employee engagement. Participants discover their hidden potential, increase their personal effectiveness, and take ownership of their decisions and actions in a powerful way. They move from being managers to leaders who can inspire and engage their teams in a way that taps their enthusiasm and potential.
Building a more dedicated, creative, and engaged workforce requires a commitment to a healthy organizational culture. The link between a company’s culture and financial return has been proven by a number of researchers. Organizations that know who they are and what they stand for attract and retain top talent. Companies that invest in their culture experience lower turnover, higher profitability, and increased employee engagement.
Historically, culture has been an intangible without any means of measurement or tracking. Tillie will draw on an innovative suite of assessment tools to capture quantitative data on your culture. Once Tillie has the baseline for your company’s current and desired cultures, she can guide you in developing a cultural strategic plan that fully supports your vision and mission.
