Hands-on Services to Help Leaders Improve Engagement
Quick ways to get answers that put your team on the right path toward better engagement
Getting everyone on the same page has never been more difficult. And you see the symptoms: competing priorities, decision deadlock, firefighting and burnout
The solution is to get aligned, fast. We teach a better way to set and communicate strategy. You’ll use design thinking, flexible roadmapping, and experiments. This is a targeted, hands-on experience with your executive team where you’ll learn by doing. You’ll walk out of the room aligned with concrete next steps
Management is being disrupted as orgs shift towards employee-driven work. Poor management is a main driver of low engagement.
We teach your leaders fundamental new approaches to working that empower and inspire your teams to do quality work that’s aligned to specific objectives.
Our training covers mechanics (what you actually do as a manager) and mindset (a more human approach to managing).
Prototyping for Teams
Bureaucracy and the momentum of the past make it difficult to make progress. Learn how to launch programs that get results, fast. Get help creating a productive team your employees will love.
We work with you to do direct research, prototype team changes, and apply product management for non-product teams. We’re designers and product managers who have deep experience at the intersection of talent and design.
This goes beyond theoretical online courses about design thinking. We work directly on your toughest business challenges.
We don’t believe in skill audits. You don’t need to know or develop every possible skill that exists.
Winning teams know what capabilities will give them a competitive advantage. This is Moneyball for talent teams. We share everything we’ve learned building skills products and teams at companies like LinkedIn and Degreed.
We work with you to identify the unique skill combinations you need to deliver on your mission. Then we teach you how to run this for teams and individuals.
