From vision to reality
We partner with leaders and their teams, designing and facilitating working sessions and off-sites to create a shared vision story and formulate organizational and cultural change strategies to accomplish the vision. Great strategies and poor implementation will not happen when Silvermine Consulting is partnering with you. We help you put in place teams and management processes to engage the whole organization in reaching the vision and creating breakthrough results along the way.
Within the vision stories we facilitate there is a description of the future state of the organization’s culture. Extracting those insights through deep conversations with the leadership team and managers clarifies the culture agenda shown in this graphic. Leaders hold each other accountable for practicing behavior changes needed to lead towards the desired culture.
Development & coaching
Once you are clear about the cultural values and behaviors you wish to develop, it becomes easier to express the leadership attitudes, skills and behaviors you expect your successful leaders to imbibe and demonstrate every day. A well designed leadership development program will build your leadership bench strength. Some leaders also benefit from having a coach and a confidential sounding board.
We have successfully coached CEO’s of multi-billion dollar organizations, functional managers and everyone in between.
Profiles and tools
We offer a wide range of leadership and management assessment and profiling products, which accelerate the important conversations needed in teams and individual coaching assignments. We partner with Wiley, MRG (Management Research Group), and Human Synergistics
Building the high performing team
Organizations succeed because of team performance far more than individual performance. Leadership teams are in place in most functions, as well as at the very top. Silvermine Consulting’s work is often with leadership – helping them create and communicate "Vision Stories", developing strategies for reaching the vision, and putting in place implementation teams and processes. However in a team there are behaviors that can either disrupt or undermine a team's effectiveness or behaviors that can create cohesion and outstanding performance.
If you have recently formed a new team, or changed its members, then this is an ideal time to consider this program.
