Strong and virtuous leadership teams are required for businesses to succeed to the next generation.
Do you find yourself wondering…?
- How can we create a culture of trust and accountability that attracts—and keeps—the best people?
- What will it take to ensure our company has a sustainable competitive advantage?
For years, we wrestled with questions like these. Then, a few years ago, the answers became clear to us when we discovered “The Great 8” Leadership Virtues. When put into practice, these eight virtues can transform not only the leader—but also the entire company.
The “Virtues” become the lynchpin that make our 3 Win Approach possible. Otherwise, you could invest a lot of money promoting the wrong behaviors weakening business performance.
How We Help You
Our process involves 8 leadership team development workshops that teach teams how to implement the virtues in a continued, sustainable way. And when you pursue The 3 Wins in light of the "Great 8" leadership virtues, you'll build a high-trust, high-performance culture, reaching a level of collaboration that becomes a force multiplier to achieve breakthrough profits. We call this dynamic the Collaboration Effect on Profits.
The workshops are designed to develop these 3 Building Blocks into your organization:
|Building Blocks||Virtue Workshops|

|Company Communication|| |
Vision and Strategy
Objective: Define your Why, How, What
Your Why should guide all vision-casting—” What do we want to achieve?” Then the How and the What comprise your strategy for how you will go about achieving your vision. We help you set the right direction by establishing a courageous vision that’s built on both personal conviction and sound business metrics.
Objective: Identify and bridge any gaps between actual and optimal roles
Each team has roles. Often a team member’s actual role may not be their optimal role. This creates dysfunction in your team. We help you clarify your teams’ optimal roles.
Most Important Tasks
Objective: Identify the most important tasks for each optimal role
Each role in an organization should have MITs - tasks that must be done on a weekly basis in order for the organization to achieve its vision. We help you identify these MITs.
Line of Sight
Objective: Regularly review progress toward the vision in a weekly meeting
Leadership teams often struggle with the question, “Where are we going?” We help you set the goal and build the strategy, so each person on your team can develop a clear line of sight.
Objective: Develop systems for timely, consistent, and useful feedback between managers and employees
The next step is to verify success on an individual basis. We help you develop performance evaluations to offer the opportunity for strategic interaction between the leader and the team.
Personality / Leadership Profiles
Objective: Discover how you work best on a team
Each team member is unique as an individual with their own personality and leadership style. The teams that understand each other well have the best opportunity to succeed together. We help teams discover the unique personality types and leadership styles of others on the team. By promoting the virtue of acceptance, you are able to accept those around you for who they are, which will in turn create a healthy culture.
Objective: Practice clear and effective communication that fosters mutual trust and respect
When a team learns how to communicate well with one another, there is a lower risk of losing momentum. Ideas and concepts are developed, processed and implemented more efficiently, and confusion around strategy is greatly reduced. Each person communicates differently – what they hear, how they listen – and coming together to a collective understanding is the challenge. We help teams understand the communication styles represented on the team and how to best communicates with one another.
Conflict Promotion and Management
Objective: Promote healthy conflict, resolve the bad conflict
Before good ideas can be developed and implemented, healthy conflict typically occurs. Teams that can embrace this concept, knowing that can lead to bigger and better ideas, are more willing to understand the value of healthy conflict and achieve more. Healthy conflict requires trust, patience, awareness, and authenticity, resulting in an overall stronger team. We help teams understand conflict and give them the tools to use conflict to achieve success in their company.
