coaching & training that motivates, inspires and lasts
Our Professional Growth Process (PGP) in combination with systematic LifePsych® Coaching (LPC) helps you and your employees meet personal and organizational goals, which ultimately results in satisfied customers and long term business success.
don't think "outside the box" - forget the box
Throw the box away and engage the innovative Professional Growth Process with continuous LifePsych® Coaching and never look back. Always look forward as you build employee success stories — one goal at a time. Engage all employees with real-time, leader-involved coaching — all the time. Teach employees how to create a growth plan, how to execute the plan and how to document action oriented activity toward goal descriptions. Encourage employee behavior to be consistently in alignment with the organizational mission and strategy.
Turn the 360 around
Move away from cumbersome performance reviews to a pattern of documented employee success stories. We promote continuous growth and innovation without using annual performance reviews. The creation of a continuous process is more effective than periodic reviews.
real results from training
The PGP ensures that learning is turned into real behavioral change, a challenge for conventional training methods. It's a proven transfer of training method for documenting goals, action steps, measurement and accountability, without giving managers extra paperwork.
Keep the ideas flowing
Extraordinary business results comes from employees who energetically grow toward organizationally aligned and focused behaviors, while enthusiastically helping their teammates do the same. The Professional Growth Process, powered by LifePsych® Coaching, creates direction and accountability which leads to a steady stream of personal and organizational innovation.
trust your leaders
Effectively executing a performance management system requires trust in your leaders. Such trust cannot be just a leap of faith. Leaders must learn how to coach and develop employees in a way that earns trust. Effective coaching can be taught, learned, executed and sustained using the PGP and LPC.
make leadership a habit
By stating clear goal patterns and reinforcing the associated action steps that become habits, the PGP outlines a clear course of action that aligns all employees on a path towards positive change, in harmony with the organizational strategy.
rewards vs. process
Executives and leaders are usually not clear about determining "rewards" in performance management systems. Rather than focus on various "outcomes" that are associated with various "rewards," focus on encouraging the "process" that leads to significant outcomes. Learn to trust the process that produces outcomes and rewards will be allotted with greater clarity.
“David has helped me see that I have the capacity to change my most innate behaviors, ticks and tendencies through this program. I have learned that simply wanting to change and really acting on that change is vastly different and you have to invest in this program in order to see results. I like that I get to envision the leader I have always wanted to become and I have a formula on how to accomplish this leadership presence. This program, though challenging, is not at all unrealistic and gives you a sense of empowerment and accomplishment.”Heather Adkins, Nucor Steel Seattle, Inc.
“David provides a unique and structured approach to acquiring new skills, including leadership skills. His methods are easy to follow, quick and very effective, both short term and long term. Anyone, especially a leader or aspiring leader, would be remised if they did not use David’s methods to improve themselves and their team. David’s workshop and coaching method has allowed me to excel in my field and be a more productive and effective leader. In addition, after great praise and insistence from both my supervisor and manager, I have been pursuing supervisory roles within Nucor. Thanks for all your help.”Demetri Kampourogiannis, Cold Mill Lead Project Electrician, Nucor Steel - Arkansas
“There are many resources out there on developing valuable habits and coaching, which are focused on “what” a good leader looks like. Good ideas without effective implementation are only good ideas until they can be turned into good habits. David has a simple but thorough method of providing the “how” part of the equation. With his understanding of learning and human nature; his road map is well organized, iterative, and provides feedback along the way to help you take on the characteristics of a successful leader.”Jacob Cunningham, Maintenance Tech/Planner, Nucor Castrip Arkansas, LLC
