C-Suite Executive/Atheltic Org Team Consulting + Birkman

We begin with the Birkman® Assessment for desired individuals of the leadership team/coaching staff.  Each individual's Birkman® Assessment delivers a custom set of reports detailing a person’s energizing activities, strengths or usual behavior, stress triggers, and stress behaviors.  Once we capture the data through our online testing center, we are able to select from more than 50 different reports to create a unique feedback experience for our client leadership teams. After working with our leaders individually to devise their unique self-leadership growth plan, we transition to elevating team leadership. Depending on the scope of the organization's need, the options below are available as part of the consulting package.

Agility 2 Elevate Life Map

  • By brand we mean:

    • The passion of your work

    • The style of your work

    • The energy behind your work

    • And the culture that your presence brings into the larger organization.

Custom Surveys

  • All Employee Surveys:  We create custom surveys that evaluate the “strength of workplace” of a particular company. Using the results, we consult with the leadership of a company about both the strengths and weaknesses of their culture.

  • Manager/Coordinator Surveys:  We create surveys that measure the needs of managers within a company.  Using the information, we design a management training program that helps managers utilize best practices for helping employees experience success in the workplace.

Design of Resources

  • Employee Flip Books:  Working with the leadership of a company, we help them identify their vision, mission, and values, and convert these statements into a resources that are easily “retrievable” and “reviewable” for managers and employees.  We also include key messages that leaders want their employees to be mindful of.

  • Manager Flip Books:  We have created a management training program called “Agility to Win.” We customize this material to fit the unique needs of a company into a flip book.  Then we assist in the training of the material.

  • Executive Flip Books:  We work with the CEO & President or Athletic Director/Head Coach of a company or program to identify the key traits he or she wants in each of their Executives.  This information is converted into a flip book and trained to the Executive Team as a group and in individual coaching sessions.
