Happy hours and vacation policies are no longer enough to retain top talent.
Today’s highest potential leaders are looking for organizations that support their growth and invest in their professional development.
They want to be surrounded by colleagues who give constructive feedback and take ownership and pride in their work.
They are looking for psychologically safe environments where they can bring their full selves to work.
These types of organizations don’t just happen.
Becoming a great place to work is an intentionally designed act that requires focus from leaders across the organization.
The organizations that recruit, hire, and retain today’s best talent know that they must build strong cultures based on values and partnership. They must invest in their most valuable resource: their people.
We design and deliver powerful and lasting learning experiences for your team, the kind of experiences that make working at your organization unique.
We consult with you to develop customized, agile, and results-oriented programs to transform your leaders and have sustainable impact.
Workshops and programs are customized based on interviews, analysis, and conversation with you. Popular topics include:
While the idea of seeking out feedback can be terrifying at first, when done with intention and skill, it is actually life-giving. It’s how we grow, innovate, and thrive. Without it, we question what others think, live in fear of what others might be thinking, and create all types of simple stories of how others experience us.
Frameworks are fabulous mechanisms for getting us comfortable having tough conversations. They teach us how to build the muscle needed to connect with the people around us, and without them, we often won’t have the conversation at all. But be careful of losing yourself in their nuance and structure.
In early 2018, WillowTree, a digital innovation agency based in Charlottesville, VA began asking: How can we maintain our culture and our core values as we continue to expand? Partnering with Launch Project, WillowTree realized that to sustain and evolve its culture, it needed to invest in its high potential leaders.
When you focus on your strengths, you are more productive, efficient, and fulfilled. Organizations that support employees in leaning into their strengths have increases in employee engagement, which ultimately leads to higher profitability, lower turnover, and greater customer satisfaction.
Creating meaningful relationships with the people you work with doesn’t have to be super time consuming, and in the end, it will actually save you time. The better you know your colleagues and what motivates them, the easier it will be to communicate, motivate, and GSD. Given that we spend most of our waking hours in the office, isn't’ that a good thing?
