Craft & Cultivate

When people (and their teams) lack clarity of meaning, their tasks become unfocused, and dissatisfaction can foster friction.

Teams with clear meaning understand why and what they are doing.  Focused and defined meaning improves performance, retains key talent, and benefits customers. 

Craft shared meaning for your organization,teams, and employees. Cultivate and include people's shared meanings to overcome adversity and improve performance.

These practices will enhance your ability to compete and innovate to better serve your customers. 

The Meaningful Approach

Effective communication is integrated into strategy and and leadership for desired outcomes. Anything less and it becomes noise without purpose.

Work is more than metrics, methodologies, and  milestones. Projects are driven by people. And shared meaning drives and binds people.

Meaningful Communication Cohort is your laboratory

Creating communications, strategies, and leadership philosophies is often a messy business. Mistakes happen. Decisions might not be the best ones for different scenarios. Experiment. Get feedback from your peers. Learn during the cohort to excel in public. 

The Who

This cohort is for people that work together in organizations, on projects, and other efforts. Throughout each cohort, we collaborate with you as its sponsor. By learning techniques to enhance performance through meaningful communication, strategies, and leadership your people will be better positioned to succeed together and overcome adversity. 

The Reason

How we communicate is deeply familiar to each of us. Too familiar to consider alternatives or witness opportunities and weaknesses.

  • Cohorts members bring observational skills and insights to how we communicate and engage challenges.
  • Participants bring their unique perspectives and experiences that benefit other and contribute their own professional growth
  • Only learning is not enough. Application and practice is a key component of academy sessions.
