Budget

Communication Basics Review

Communication (Elevator Speech)

This module has the goal of helping the client understand the components of and delivering an effective “elevator speech.”

Communication (Commitments)

This builds on the elevator speech but really dives deeper. A question that I might ask here is, “Are you able to describe the two or three biggest commitments your organization is currently working on and why now is the right time to do so---market acceptance, technology, regulation changes, and long-standing critical corporate commitments, etc.?”

Communication Success

A leading question I might ask here would be, “If you were called upon to give an extemporaneous talk today about your company to your Kiwanis, Rotary, or some other Community Club, what would you say? How would you quickly structure your talk?” Then we would follow up with developing the specific components.

Collaboration

Also, makes the actual meeting more efficient and productive.

A process to assist the C Suite Level executive to identify and involve the right people in gathering information with regards to risks in every area of the organization. Also, an exercise that gives the organization practice in working through what-if scenarios ahead of time which can not only mitigate risk but also aid in timely and efficient action when needed.

Self-Assessment

A nice tool for personal self-assessment to bring about awareness. This is a key component in the initial stages of Executive Coaching.

Structure

This process is quite valuable in assessing the need for restructuring. Many times, restructuring can be a knee jerk reaction based on finances, when that is only one component. There are so many aspects that should be considered when taking on a restructure and this tool will help the client assess all of those areas. Also, the strategic planning process often turns into an exercise that produces a document and even a scorecard but makes no real difference in how an organization operates on a practical level but instead becomes more of a marketing tool. The organization should be structured and have a plan that facilitates efficient and effective operations. This tool will be of great value in helping the executive bring that about.

Supply Chain

A tool that will assist the client in understanding what questions are relevant to matters involving the supply chain.
