Whatever the purpose of your meeting and the nature of the participants, from collaborative to contentious, an experienced meeting facilitator can help you to stay on track, achieve objectives, and fully engage participants.
From regularly scheduled board meetings to final contract negotiations, a facilitator can ensure that issues are exposed and explored and messages are communicated and understood. An independent and impartial facilitator can help to expose opportunities, bridge chasms, and achieve consensus.
Culture eats strategy for breakfast. Before embarking on any major initiative, especially those that involve large capital expenditures or resource allocations, it can be extremely beneficial to conduct a cultural assessment.
A Leadership/Impact study can help to predict cultural resistance to change and can suggest countermeasures. By understanding the business culture in an impartial academic way, business managers can develop strategies to maximize the impact of change initiatives.
Sparrow and Associates clients see their cultural inventory as a growth metric and work to move their organizational culture using agile and constructive styles.
Innovative leadership requires self-awareness, that we foster through a mixture of challenge and decision support. Executive coaching services rely upon a collaborative relationship between the impartial coach and the leader to explore biases, behaviours, and styles that may undermine otherwise sound strategy.
Whether for yourself or a promising up and comer, executive coaching helps emphasize consistent structure to support transformative change.
