When you have disciplined people, you don’t need hierarchy. When you have disciplined thought, you don’t need bureaucracy. When you have disciplined action, you don’t need excessive controls.

As part of our Performance Consulting, we offer a variety of programs that have been carefully designed based on our Seven Elements of High Performance™ research. We utilize a systematic approach, with a focus on organizational performance, not on individual performance, to help our clients achieve their goals. We call this approach the Organizational Performance Management System™.
Each of the components of the Organizational Performance Management System™ have been designed to address a key group of the Seven Elements of High Performance™ at a specific stage in the organization’s development process, which allows the organization to build a foundation that will support future development efforts which will lead to increased performance.
We focus on the organization as a whole, which includes its leaders, systems, processes and culture, rather than on individual performance, because increasing individual employee performance has no guarantee that it will lead to increased overall organizational performance. To be sure, organizational performance is a result of the efforts of the individual employees, but this individual performance only translates into an increase in organizational performance when their efforts are aligned with the goals of the organization and they are allowed to perform in an environment that will motivate and engage them to want to work together to achieve the organization’s goals.
The Organizational Performance Management System™ is designed to help the organization create the leadership, culture, and systems that will lead to alignment and engagement in the efforts of the individual employees. It is a top-down/bottom-up approach that the research indicates that few organizations learn how to master well.
In this section of our website we offer an overview of each of the Organizational Performance Management System™ programs. Click on the program title to learn more about the program, including program focus, durration, and performance support tools utilized.

Team Quest™ – an Executive/Senior Team teambuilding program designed to insure clarity and agreement on the topmost level team in the organization, be it a local plant, or the corporate headquarters. The goal of this program is to insure that before moving forward with other organizational performance enhancement program that the Executive/Senior Team is proceeding with One Voice™.
Vision Quest™ – a strategic planning process that provides the organization with a long-term, focused, yet flexible strategy for driving performance in the organization. Outcome of this program will result in a clear and well defined Purpose and Values, as well as a set of well thought out Goals and a balanced scorecard for measuring the performance of the organization.
Leadership Connections™ – a management development process for engaging performance at the team and individual levels of the organization. Leadership Connections™ is a long-term, and well planned program that is designed to help managers learn how to create the kind of environment where their people can excel. What makes this program really unique is that managers who are participating in the program have application exercises that they complete between their once-a-month sessions. Some exercises require reading and working with other managers, while others require them to meet with their employees, individually and as a team, to discuss the interpersonal issues that impact performance for the employee and the team. Managers also teach them some of the concept that they are learning, including the DiSC model, giving everyone a common language for discussing and improving behaviors that lead to increased employee engagement and increased individual, team, and organizational performance.
Work Engagement Survey™ – an employee engagement survey that measures key issues that impact employee engagement which impacts performance. While you measure employee engagement by the organization, division, department, or team, you build employee engagement one employee at a time. The Work Engagement Survey™ does both at the same time. Employees take the survey, giving the organization an invaluable look at what is happening on a global scale. But each employee also receives a copy of their results, giving managers a great tool to talk about what matters most to each employee. No other employee engagement survey offers this tool for building employee engagement in your organization.
Team DISCovery™ – a teambuilding program for intact work-teams. This program is designed for those key teams that need additional focus, or for use in very small organizations. The program focuses on increasing clarity and agreement about why the team exists, what they have to achieve, and what each team member has to do so that the team can achieve their desired outcomes.
We challenge you to find a comparable program that is as effective as any of ours at a price that is less than ours. We are confident that our programs provide value and get results for your organization.
