Yesterday... & Tomorrow

it's Legendary Teams

that Change the World

Organizations & society are increasingly complex, requiring flexibility to implement rapid yet significant change. These levels of adaptation go beyond that of any one leader or CEO.

High-performing and exceptional leadership teams provide the leadership edge needed for success today. 

There's a Reason

… entrepreneurs, activists and international businesses rely on GDE. In both tech- and human-driven services, people make decisions in a moment’s notice. This means that, optimally, in that moment, they align every resource possible toward transformation and meaningful contribution. Optimally.

In reality?

Humans are innately optimized for life. But who systematically ensures all the resources available are systematically leveraged?

Rare is leadership development that builds both individual and team leadership intelligence capacities. Leadership teams are GDE’s strategic focus for expanding trust, foresight, and bold compassion.

GDE trains and coaches so your teams create the exceptional value your business dependably provides your customers.

GDE’s innovative leadership development method (Transilience) gives your business the leadership edge you need when failure is not an option.

Leadership Development the Makes a Measurable Difference
Not all people have titles. But all are leaders. Developing skills, mindsets and group habits all have the capacity to turn your business into a leader in your industry.
Leadership is about creating focus, developing awareness, building skills, and making decisions. With the increasing complexity of life, having proven skills that include emotional fitness as well as mental and physical fitness is increasingly essential.
Transformational Leverage Points
What are your organizational pressure points for implementing change? Or perhaps you are still trying to determine your business’  biggest black hole into which people and resources seem to keep disappearing?
Putting this another way, is leadership development in your business increasing at the same speed as the changes you want in your organization? If not, you are in for pain.
A strategic focus is on your leadership teams. Your leadership teams make the difference between success and failure today.
Change that positively infects the whole organization begins in your leadership teams.
Plugging the Hole in Your Talent Bucket
Talent burn and churn is at its highest in tech companies followed closely behind by retail sales jobs. 
Is this a fact of life in technology or are there things that can be done to change these numbers? What would it mean to your bottom line to reduce your talent losses by 1% or 5%.
When you are ready to cut your losses and shift from industry norm to the high end of talent retention, call. Connect. Act systematically.  
Detox for Your Organizational (or Team) Culture
Teams and organizations are living biomes, and it doesn’t take much to make them toxic.
When you are aiming for success and working hard to build your business, one brutal truth is that if you do not get your culture right during and after implementing changes, you are most certainly going to fail. In other words, if your staff or board members are not along for the ride, you will be in a world of growth and transformational pain. 
And crafting your organization’s culture is not just about free coffee and flex hours. It’s about relationships and the unspoken assumptions and invisible conversations that wander freely around the coffee pots and lunch halls.
Intelligent transformation involves much more than improving technologies within a business to be faster or more cost-efficient. It’s also about mindset and relationships between leadership and teams at all levels. Working on these latter two is essential to high-performance company-wide. Healthy organizational cultures means the organization can handle today’s pace of change well. In healthy cultures, staff feel protected, appreciated, respected, and fulfilled. They give perform better and staff changes drop. The theory is not rocket science, but crafting an exceptional culture takes more than paying lip-service to the goal!

The Human Element

Tech companies are driving change across the world, yet often they are losing their own through burn and churn just as fast. They see it, measure it, and too often, don’t know what to do.

Advising & Mentoring

Change leaders, start-ups, social entrepreneurs and NGOs exceptional at what they do, too often waste months & years when they don’t have a plan for  social impact.
