Perform Better

as an Effective Organization

Efficiency makes you faster and cheaper but without effectiveness efficiency becomes an open door in the floor of your organization.

Effective organizations use the full potential of their talent, culture and customers to create results that exceed expectations.

Effective organizations know that talent is not a renewable resource without conditions that advance growth.

Effective organizations are more curious. They create ideas and solutions from healthy friction between departments and teams. They engage, share and collaborate.

Effective organizations know that culture is not one thing but a Culture of Things (CoT)

There is no one definition of culture because it is not one thing. Culture is an ecosystem of values and beliefs, processes and systems, behaviours, symbols and stories. Effective organizations place culture at the heart of their innovation, brand experience, employee engagement and customer relationships. And it is their greatest competitive advantage.

Become More Effective with the Unlimited Potential Program

Make the most of your talent, culture and customer potential with the Unlimited Potential Program (UPP), a business planning system designed to improve your organization’s performance effectiveness.

The UPP business planning system takes qualitative and quantitative measures of your organization’s potential for effectiveness in the three critical performance zones of your operating system; talent, culture and customers. This unique inside-out intelligence gathering becomes the foundation of your organizational effectiveness.

UPP Components

1.
Frame – for Leaders and Managers

Taking a near-future view, senior teams envision their most effective organization. What will it look like? How will it behave and perform? What does future success look like? How will we contribute to the change management required to be highly effective in future?

Teams consider the future capabilities; the skills and talents that will drive effectiveness. What are the values and beliefs that power performance effectiveness?

They design the ideal work environment, structure and values that motivate the organization.

Leaders and managers define the organization’s uniqueness in products and services, market positioning and in customer relationships.

With Frame the organization has a vision and direction for future effectiveness and the framework of a plan to accomplish their goals.

3.
Discovery – for Employees

Engage employees in improving organizational effectiveness.

Gain their perspective with a self-evaluation of their skills and talent, the meaning of work, their well-being, relationships with peers and management and their contribution to success.

Understand what motivates their decisions on retention and loyalty with a cultural audit, work environment review, process/systems evaluation and assessment of purpose and vision.

Ask what if and what could be with a product/services evaluation and for customer-facing employees, a customer relationship review.

Discovery gives employees a voice. It increases trust, rapport and loyalty by engaging them in their own future success.

2.
Discovery – for Leaders and Managers

Discovery is a comprehensive review of the current state of the organization, designed to help leaders and managers explore and assess the organization’s talent, the business’s culture and customers.

Discover opportunities in talent development through a skill and talent analysis. Understand employee well-being, the meaning of work and contribution to the organization’s success.

Improve attraction, retention and competitive differentiation with a Cultural audit that includes an examination of values/beliefs, purpose and vision assessment as well as a work environment and systems/processes review.

Unleash design thinking with fresh perspective on innovation, a product/service assessment and a review of the customer relationship and experience with the organization.

A key building block in planning, Discovery engages management in a collaborative process that helps them do more and be more effective with their organization’s most important renewable resources.

4.
Discovery – for Customers

Collaborate with customers to truly understand what is important and effective.

Customers will define the current and desired relationship with your organization, the skills and talents needed to be effective and the role the organization can play in their success.

Create seamless experiences from a deeper understanding on what is important, relevant and meaningful to them. Learn how to communicate and connect with them more effectively.

Know how you are doing with a comprehensive review of your current product/services and key perceptions of your organization. Understand how effective you could be with future products/services.

Design the experience and customer relationship that moves the needle on sales, satisfaction and loyalty.
