After an initial consultation with your key team members, an individual program is tailored that will lead you through the critical phases of leading and managing change.
Phase I. Project Launch and Engagement is a one-day program for key organizational leaders introducing the world-renowned methodologies of Six Thinking Hats and Lateral Thinking. This first day begins the work on key issues your organization is dealing with, creating new ways of addressing those important issues and designing initial follow-through action steps.
Phase II. Innovative Thinking and Problem Solving has two parts; a two-day and a three-day program, and is a deeper dive which builds on the work done in Phase I. Designed for key organization leaders and support staff, we take more in-depth practice time with your staff integrating and learning the de Bono skills and creating strategies of organizational need and implementation. This phase has as a primary focus on developing expertise and skill development in leading the use of the de Bono methods, Six Thinking Hats, Lateral Thinking and Perception Broadening Tools with an action and implementation result. We also integrate an important coaching component into both segments.
Phase III. Implementation and Execution– Bringing it all together and making it happen is at the heart of implementation and execution component. Designed to help you avoid the ‘places where ideas go to die’ and to complement those who already have more than they can do, we staff your organization with a health care MD-executive and consultants who are well experienced and equipped to help you focus on completing the task and getting the job done.
Phase IV Embedding the Gains is the final phase of monitoring the change and instilling it into your organizational culture. This component is carefully designed in collaboration with your organization. Your ‘internal coaches’ will be fully trained and ready to meet future challenges, no matter what they are and where they come from.
