Leadership Development – 21st century leaders face diverse and multi-dimensional challenges that were unheard of in the previous century. Forming strategic alliances, providing the strategic and visionary direction for their organizations and teams combined with facilitating the day-to-day and year to year performance can be overwhelming and lonely. Alchemy’s approach to leadership development is looking at ORGANIZATIONAL leadership. With top level leadership and managers we co-create a leadership program that builds strong internal leaders who can manage, respond and create business today and tomorrow. Combining business best practices and skilled facilitation, our development programs exceed others in producing sustainable, inspired and engaged leadership across platforms and areas.
Strengths-Based Performance for Individuals and Teams - Alchemy believes that organizations and individuals achieve their full potential when they focus on and leverage their strengths. Strength-based team performance is grounded in the discovery, understanding and unleashing of individual and team strengths to reach new heights of performance.
Developing a Team Charter – Bringing an old notion into the 21st century – “agreements” between people have a new home in business – this is not a legal memorandum of understanding – this is an agreement about what you and your team will do, how you will do it, how you measure success and how you will be accountable. Take team performance and effectiveness to the next level with a team chartering process.
Influence and Negotiation – In today’s business environment getting what you want, when you want it is a fine art. Alchemy combines the art of influence with negotiation to orient your internal people with your customers, and your customers to your products/services. This invaluable action learning program re-starts people and processes in ways that deliver sales, results and satisfied customers.
Stakeholder/Customer Engagement – How well do you know your customers? Who are your internal and external stakeholders? This process can reveal new market potential and help every organization determine where its energy, time and focus should be spent relative to those that buy your products and services, and who have a direct stake in your business’ success. Assessing your stakeholders leads to new forms of planning and delivery that is only revealed when this tried and true approach is used.
Communications and Marketing – Message and image development is key in today’s business environment. What you do with that message and how it travels inside and outside of your organization can make the difference between incremental and exponential growth. Do you have a plan for how you will communicate new changes in your business, internally and externally? Alchemy’s visuals, customized toolkits, and web development can help you make the difference in how your message and your communication are revealed.
Leadership Expressiveness – what leaders do and HOW they do it set the norms for business performance – how is leadership expressed in your company? This session explores these dimensions and offers easy and quick solutions to inspiring and expressing leadership in your business.
Change Management – there is only one constant in life – that is constant is “change”. Why and how you do the things you do in any system has profound affect. Are you embracing all aspects of change as you consider a new software, product, program or person? Alchemy can help you position that change with ease and grace so that time actually becomes money, and your changed system works for you!
"Alchemy was great for the Hancock Senior Team when we initially took office. Like any new organization, we wanted to get off to a great start and develop a clear vision that would guide our work. Lois and her shop helped us focus our initial thinking and guided the development of the Mayor's new vision of delivering a world-class city where everyone matters."
