Leadership & team effectiveness

Organizational and individual change
rarely follow a linear path.

Learning in action

In intense, complex situations, there are no recipes for leadership--effective leadership in such circumstances is learned through action.

I have been there. I know what it is like.

I have over 30 years of experience facilitating change. This includes many years in leadership and quality improvement with organizations widely known for innovation such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Group Health Cooperative and the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

Unleashing leadership capacity

  • High performance, sustained over time, is not just about setting direction and getting to results.
  • It is also about resilience and the ability to innovate and change.
  • These factors depend on the ways people work together and how leadership is expressed—people issues, not technical issues.

Creating effective strategies for authority, interpersonal and cultural issues is not easy.

  • Even the most successful organizations struggles at times. (Emotional, relational and organizational issues are complex and contextual—always changing.)
  • You and your leadership team are better skilled than you think. (Gaps very often have to do with awareness and strategy rather than lack of skills.)
  • Failures are opportunities to learn your way to better results. (With every interaction, you can make adjustments to get to desired results.)

I help clients harness leadership capacity to tackle tough organizational issues as they work toward business and quality results.
