  • Team Coaching | Transformation Associates, Inc.

    TEAM COACHING Building High-Performing Teams While Executive success is heavily dependent upon the ability to build, empower, and support high-performing teams, many leaders struggle with team dysfunction and the resulting low productivity. ​ Teams often falter because the desired team norms and behaviors are not adequately articulated, modeled, and rewarded. One or more of the essential building blocks of cohesive high performing teams, which include trust and respect, communication, constructive conflict, commitment, accountability, is absent. ​ ​Team members sometimes struggle to navigate successfully the predictable Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and ultimately, the Adjourning stages of team development. They often encounter issues at each development stage that benefit from focused coaching and support en-route to becoming a high-performing team member. Don't let your team falter - engage an experienced Team Coach today.

  • Career Challenges | Transformation Associates, Inc.

    CAREER CHALLENGES Make no mistake; business professionals at all levels periodically experience self-doubt and anxiety. Nothing brings these periods of critical self-reflection and analysis on quite so quickly as when significant career challenges are encountered. The fear of losing a job , losing a job , a lousy work assignment , and being passed over for promotion are common adverse triggering events. Conversely, positive events can also be triggering, including landing a new job and managing others who were previously peers . In challenging times, some professionals obsess over minutia and every career-related decision. Others focus exclusively on situational factors in search of answers and understanding. And still, others look internally for insight and solutions. Some coping mechanisms are helpful, and others are ultimately self-defeating. Regardless of the initial approach taken, most professionals benefit tremendously from the objectivity, insight, and guidance provided by our experienced Executive Coaches. We work closely with clients to craft and execute personalized Career Roadmaps using proven coaching techniques and targeted psychological assessments. Some of the more frequently reported career-related challenges are outlined below. Do any of them look familiar? Might you benefit from some focused Executive Coaching? Engage Your Coach Today I Keep Getting Passed Over For Promotion ​Employees who struggle to get promoted often assume that their careers have stalled and drastic action is required to advance. Rather than stagnate in their current role, they opt to "jump ship" and join another company. In some cases, this is the right move to get their careers back on track. However, more often than not there are legitimate reasons why advancement is not forthcoming. Read More... I Just Got A Lousy Work Assignment Even the most engaged and industrious employees resent the assignment of tedious and monotonous tasks. Who can blame them?

  • Process Challenges | Transformation Associates, Inc.

    PROCESS CHALLENGES Ill-defined business processes cause tremendous frustration and inefficiency in companies of all sizes. Employees feel trapped and have little choice but to "keep their heads down" and work within the existing process constraints - often at great personal expense. Managers usually report having a gut feeling that something is wrong, but rarely can quantify the problem. Typically they have neither the time nor the expertise to analyze, streamline the broken processes and are prone to "throwing bodies " at the problem. Adding headcount to muscle through a broken process may be a reasonable short term fix, but is rarely a viable long term solution. A more thoughtful approach is usually required. ​ What managers need more than anything else is an objective, critical assessment of the targeted processes and a proven approach for systematically addressing the underlying bottlenecks, errors, and rework. Managers are better off engaging experts to lead their team in transforming and standardizing the targeted processes than trying to drive process improvements with internal resources which are likely inexperienced, resistant and already over-allocated. Listed below are high-level descriptions of the kinds of issues reported by some of our clients. Do any of these sound familiar? Schedule An Introductory Call We still rely on inefficient paper-based processes. It is hard to believe that many companies still rely heavily on paper to manage core business processes. Usually, there are so-called "perfectly good reasons for doing so," but few are legitimate. The wasted effort in these organizations borders on criminal. Even basic Excel-based tracking solutions can seem like light years ahead of existing paper-based processes. Learn More... Employees rely on tribal knowledge to get the job done In some companies, particularly within their support functions, standardized processes do not exist. Employees rely heavily on tribal knowledge to get the work done, and employees have their own way of doing things. Best practices are ignored, and waste, error, and rework abound. performance metrics are absent. and these functions can be very difficult to manage. Learn More... I spend all my time fixing someone else's errors Few people enjoy fixing their own mistakes, and almost no one enjoys checking and correcting the work of others. But alas, error and rework rates in many business functions are often very high. Employees resist standardized processes citing that they are professionals and need latitude to get the job done. In such cases, the introduction of best practices and objective performance metrics can help managers turn things around. Learn More... We don't even follow our own SOPs New managers are often dismayed to hear that Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are inadequate or, in some cases, nonexistent. Both situations are bad but not nearly as troubling as when employees ignore published SOPs. In such cases, particularly in highly regulated environments, it is only a matter of time before "things go pear-shaped." Learn More... Lean and Six Sigma methodologies can be successfully applied to diagnose and address even the most complicated process challenges. The trick is knowing how and when to leverage the various tools and techniques most effectively. A traditional, full-blown Six Sigma deployment is NOT required to realize significant benefits. Let one of our Transformation Advisors guide you in leverage disciplined process improvement strategies and techniques that will work within your specific organization. Schedule An Introductory Call
