“We began developing these programs three years ago while conducting research for a book project on the drivers of high performance organizations,”
Transformational leaders are capable of cultivating and communicating an inspirational vision of success. They authentically engage associates, both cognitively and emotionally, building a creative, inclusive culture that supports the development and execution of innovative strategies and exceptional performance.
“The research on current employee engagement indicates more than 70% of associates are either disengaged or actively working at cross purpose with their employers,” adds Mr. Murray. “When we take into consideration that, in today’s world, it’s the efficient commercialization of intellectual property that drives company valuation and profitability, the engagement crisis really hits home. Transformational Leadership is the key to turning this crisis into opportunity.”
Terry states, “Current research bears this out,” referencing a recent study published in the Harvard Business Review that indicates companies that fully engage both their associates and customers on an emotional level enjoy a 240% improvement in financial performance.
The customized approach is built around specific business objectives, enabling an accurate return on investment to be calculated for each client. Employing the company's proprietary Accretive Coaching ProcessTM, the workshops integrate tools that impart self-awareness, social awareness, self management, and relationship management competencies. Evidence-based constructs from Applied Behavioral Economics, psychology, and neurophysiology also broaden each leader’s ability to connect, communicate, and authentically engage those they lead.
The programs deliver what Terry calls integrated development. “Leadership doesn’t develop in a vacuum. It emerges over time, resulting in great part from the experiences that come through a progression of leading strategic initiatives, projects, and teams. This is why we anchor our development programs to our clients’ current opportunities. Not only does it provide a realistic context for learning, it accelerates value creation and ROI for our customers.”
Optional experiential learning workshops add dimension to the programs.
“It’s no coincidence that many of history’s greatest leaders were phenomenal horse people,” comments Terry. “Our Equine Facilitated Learning workshops build presence, awareness, and heighten communication skills. We’re honored to have received a commendation from General David Petraeus for similar programs,” referring to the company’s pro bono Warriors in Transition workshops designed to help veterans and families re-assimilate to life post-combat.
