Our clients are change leaders in government and industry. Their organizations seek to benefit by redefining excellence, aligning strategic direction to critical operational issues, and uncovering and understanding the Voice of the Customer (VOC) to become the top performers in their field.

How We Work With You

Clients wanting highly visible and sustainable results generally engage us for up to two years. We work to transfer our C3 system, tools for innovative leadership, and Voice of the Customer technology to them so they rapidly become self-sufficient.

Many clients want to merely open the minds of key audiences to possibilities they had never considered. This may occur with a keynote or workshop, or it can involve regularly scheduled seminars and strategic projects over several years. Topics such as Strategic Project Management, Voice of the Customer, and Mastering 8 Dimensions of Excellence are frequently how we start the transformation process.

Our work is sensitive to how each client would like to be treated. Our approach is as principled as it is flexible. We are skilled and comfortable with many client wishes:

  1. A disciplined, well-organized Voice of the Customer project management approach to transformation.
  2. The “do-it-yourself” option (we offer Voice of the Customer courses, web-based tools, train-the-trainer certification and even a game).
  3. A coaching and mentoring approach. We help you select high-impact projects, carry out key project tasks and support your internal team(s) with coaching and mentoring.
  4. Inspiration, motivation and innovation only.  We have developed a unique, entertaining way to open minds. We help our clients achieve what they never thought possible.
