IMPACT provides guidance centered around building your individuals, teams, and organizations. We do not train just for the sake of training, but rather we train to provide you, your organization, or community growth and value creation. We want anyone who works with us to walk away with a better understanding of who they are, or what the company they work for truly represents and know that it will enhance performance in whatever your personal or professional endeavors may lead you, or simply prepare you to take on whatever everyday life throws at you. You will realize your limitations are much more than you every imagined. In fact it may be the first time you really meet yourself. We do not train to the “lowest common denominator” but rather push the limits of individuals and groups knowing they will step up and perform to levels never imagined. Our programs are unorthodox and drawn from our years of experience working in extreme environments for international corporations and governmental organizations. It will be hard; it may even hurt, and it will provide you a new look on life. Additionally, we assure you that you will immediately become part of a like-minded community full of support and motivation that will offer you no other option but success.
The End State captures where the company wants to be in the future? It resonates through the ranks by giving unity, and pulls teams and people in a common direction and encourages creativity. Its simple, direct, understood, provides resolution and detail.
Strategic planning shows the way forward to the future and develops the necessary procedures, policies, and plans to achieve that. It provides the road map that will take the company from where they are currently to where the company wants to be.
Intent provides the description and definition of success. It accounts for chaos, missing information, changes in competitors situation, and other unforeseen factors that will affect your mission. It paints the detailed picture of perfection.
A plan is useful only when it is easily understood and carried out by all involved. This is directly related to how well it was composed. Effective plans share some common characteristics. It must be agreed upon, move the company toward the future and establish goals and objectives. But the biggest aspect is decentralized decision making
Communicating the Plan
To successfully implement the plan it must be briefed to all who will have a role in it. Often constraints (conditions, time, personnel) may not allow for an extensive briefing but at a minimum, detailed discussions among supervisors and sub-unit leaders should occur to ensure that they are completely clear on all aspects.
The execution of the plan is about efficiency and effectiveness. Busy “ness” is not business and resources are not endless. But execution happens and now we must learn in retrospect what worked, what did not, and what was sustainable so that we can take lessons learned, share them and increase efficiency and effectiveness.
For your teams to understand expectations standards must be established and communicated They provide a common understanding of principles and expectations that keep the organization moving forward.
Training should be two-fold in that it builds individuals, but also strengthens the team as a whole by providing more tools for the tool box. Training should align with the vision and keep the company moving forward to the future
We look for synergy. We want diversity because that brings us experience and different perspectives to our efforts. Your folks are what makes or breaks your company. A team that is unified and has common goals and objectives is unstoppable.
