Invest in Your Team & Organizational Success

Of course there are many variables as there are clients, but normally it is a 3 part engagement:

Phase 1, Steve walks the client through a discovery process where we talk about the situation, the issues, whether there is a fit, and he is able to help you; and map out the process.

This process could take several conversations over a few weeks.

This has a value of $2,000 which is credited to

Phase 2 If we choose to work together 

Phase 2, this is the identification & diagnosis of what was really going on through surveying & interview employees & managers and reviewing organizational structure, span of control & decision-making structures.

This process can take 2-3 months at the end of which you will receive a written report that will map out how to address and implement the recommendations.

This investment has a value of between $10,000 & $30,000

Phase 3, most people do not have the capacity or competencies to fix what ails them.

If they did we wouldn’t have ended up here having this conversation.

I work with you to clarify leadership roles, hold managers accountable, established clear project tools and coach the leadership team as you work to re-established a culture of leadership.

This is usually a 6 – 8 month engagement.

Additional Ways Steve Can Add Value At A Speaking Event

If you engage Steve based on a full day rate and basis

  1. Save the cost of bringing in another speaker (and their travel expenses) while adding incredible value to your event ask Steve to Stay for an additional day at a reduced rate.
  1. If you are serious about making a long-term investment in your culture, then purchase a copy of one of Steve’s books. A book greatly increases the likelihood that ideas are implemented and that real change happens. They also make fabulous thank you gifts and event mementos.
  1. Have Steve do an additional presentation in your community to a volunteer organization or sponsor on the same day as your event.
  1. Set aside a block of time where Steve can do one-on-one coaching with participants.
  1. Have Steve sit on a panel discussion or moderate a panel discussion on a work-related theme.
  1. Have Steve sign copies of his books at your trade show as a draw to a sponsor’s booth.
