Consulting Steps

How We’ll Work Together


Customized consulting solutions to guide your organization through a proven roadmap for building a Culture of ListeningTM


Recognize the Unsaid


Seek to Understand






Close the Loop

Step 1 - Recognize the Unsaid

Pick up on important signals.

A two-pronged approach supported by data-driven assessments helps you safely explore what your people are hesitating to say out loud. Facilitated forums supported by factual findings plant the seed for change: the feeling of being heard, hope about imminent changes, clarity about where we are now, and shared knowledge of what needs to be addressed.

Step 2 - Seek to Understand

Capture insights & emotions.

Capture Voice of the Employee (VoE) insights through surveys and listening sessions, and help your leaders gain deep, valuable insights about what team members want and need. Later, you’ll be able to harness this knowledge of what your employees care about as a foundation for measurable, organization-wide change.

Step 3 - Decode

See a complete picture.

A consolidated dashboard enables you to decipher what’s most important to team members. You’ll finally see a complete picture of what employees are finding unsatisfactory, tough, or frustrating about their work, and have the opportunity to reflect on which changes are most likely to have the greatest impact.

Step 4 - Act


Capture hearts and minds at every level.

Leveraging insights from prior steps, you are now ready to turn data into an inclusive and collaborative strategic plan. Your employees will feel excited, empowered, and deeply engaged as they contribute to creating this plan. And your leadership will experience a transformative reality where they will be capturing hearts and minds at every level.

Step 5 Icon

Close the Loop

Connect the dots.

Our strategic communication plan enables you to connect the dots for your employees. By communicating how you’ve been listening, what you see missing, and the actions you’re taking as a result. As your teams feel valued, heard, and empowered, they own more, give more, and perform at unprecedented levels of excellence.
