Achieve organizational success through leadership and team development with Teresa

Business Strategy

Creating plans for an ever-changing world is difficult. While organizations see value in failure, they want to avoid big fails if possible. A good strategy, while never a guarantee for success, goes a long way in giving clarity, direction, purpose and drive

Teresa guides the development of business strategy by identifying the ideal — what great looks like. In this process the clients identify their why, how and what. The team assesses the gap between ideal versus current. Next, they go shoulder deep to devise a plan, implement and take calculated pauses to review midpoint successes and misses. The learning along the way is captured, then the team does more, after accomplishing the three R’s — review, reflect and refresh.

"We have been partnering with Teresa for the past three years to help create our business strategy. We have found that Teresa brings a very practical element to strategic planning that results in clear and actionable strategies and tactics. She is also very accomplished at bringing out the ideas and concepts of those who tend to be more reserved in our group. If you want an implementable business plan that resonates at both the leadership and frontline levels of your organization; I recommend working with Teresa."

Team Building

team

Great teams are sourced from a wide diversity in skills, behaviours, mindsets, experiences, education, values and backgrounds, to name a few. Poor teams are sourced from the same. So what is the key to creating a high performing team? It is an ongoing process and is founded on trust. It requires commitment, training and practice. Whether the focus is creating vision and values for the organization/team, goal setting and action planning or conflict resolution, Teresa offers a wide range of custom-designed team-building processes to meet the client’s needs and expectations.

Teresa is a certified practitioner of a host of personality and behavioural assessments and often uses them — teams gain a far greater knowledge of one another’s strengths and values which positively impacts overall performance.

Hiring a Team Player

One of the biggest challenges for every organization is finding the right people for their unique culture, work processes and customer/client standards. It is easy to know what you don’t need, it is far more challenging to find what you do need. Human resources/recruitment teams and hiring managers partner with Teresa to bring an unbiased approach and a unique skillset to identifying and matching the organization’s needs to the right candidate’s needs. Call her when your top potential candidates have been identified and you’re preparing for interviews to find the best person for your organization/team.

"Best training course I have been on in the 30+ years of working life. Will definitely use what I have learned to improve my working and personal life. I had many "eureka" moments during this learning and found many of the tools and strategies very useful." 
— participant of an 18-month Leadership Development program

Leadership Development

One of Gallup’s most profound research findings is this: your managers/leaders are responsible for 70% of the factors that determine levels of employee engagement.

Investing in developing leaders maximizes the opportunity to build engaged teams and support highly satisfied and productive individuals. This investment is essential.

Teresa works with individuals and teams to:
• Accurately assess their values, strengths, gifts and mindset — the assets that support their success
• Identify opportunities for development and create and support learning goals

This effort invests in the development of leaders who  build winning relationships to serve the needs of their people.

"Teresa facilitated our high-potential executive leadership group in a business-specific Action Learning Project and skillfully guided the group to meet the project expectations and deadline with a true coaching approach. She has been adding value to the individual participants by focusing on essential leadership skills and providing constructive feedback and best practice information geared to their learning and development plans. She has also coached some of our other up-and-coming managers and directors, and I have received very positive feedback on her effectiveness in holding them accountable for their own development."
