Companies today face a far more complex and interconnected world than even a few decades ago. From small businesses to global multinational corporations, organizations must learn to effectively operate and innovate to be successful. In this environment, five major challenges rise to the top of organizations’ priorities:
Leadership remains the single most important factor in organizational success, but not for the reasons many in the past have assumed. The key to sustained growth and success in the modern economy is not a dominant leader or even a visionary one, but a leader who equips people to work collaboratively with vigor and initiative. This requires:
Individuals, teams, and departments in organizations are interrelated—they affect and are affected by each other. The key to collaboration and teamwork is helping people to be accountable not only for their actions and outputs but also for their influence on others. Organizational success depends on building intra- and inter-team understanding and accountability. This work dramatically improves problems common with:
Increased performance and heightened levels of innovation depend on building highly engaged workforces that work together cross-functionally so that different viewpoints and expertise can merge together to produce truly innovative solutions. In order to achieve this, organizations need:
To be successful in today’s environment, companies must create and maintain a truly effective, high-performing culture. This includes:
In an increasingly complex world, future-oriented thinking becomes more difficult and more necessary. Organizations must become effective in:
By helping companies develop, implement, and sustain an outward mindset, Arbinger enables them to engage all their talent and resources without the people friction that often hinders effective leadership, collaboration, and decision-making. We work across all industries.
We deliver transformation to corporations through the following programs and services:
Small Businesses and Teams
Small teams can attend our public workshops or engage in-house training, in person or via virtual delivery. The benefit of the in-house option—in addition to convenience—is the ability to tailor the examples and discussions to the company’s specific environment, challenges, and needs.
Depending on a company’s goals, a select group of leaders might first attend a public workshop—in person or virtually—to begin implementing Arbinger’s tools in their own work. To roll out a larger program in an organization, we recommend in-house workshops and the implementation of Arbinger tools. Employees who attend a train-the-trainer course can then teach Arbinger’s material to anyone in the organization on an ongoing basis. This approach enables rapid implementation as well as sustainable transformation.
Key leaders in every organization should participate in our foundational workshop and leadership training tracks. For organizations structured such that in-person workshops are not possible for front-line employees needing training, we offer a modular delivery method in which videos and group discussions replace the full-day workshop content.
Improved business performance
Engaged and productive employees
Innovation and efficiencies
Enhanced leadership competencies
Effective knowledge transfer across generational or functional gaps
We work with clients to design training programs that fit employees’ schedules. Whether the challenge is a shift-based workforce, inability to spend days out of the office, or simply a feeling of “I’m too busy,” we have found solutions that work for a range of workforces.
Arbinger supplements your team! Moreover, our Train-the-Trainer certification can prepare not only your team but also other employees you recommend to deliver our material across your workforce.
At the beginning of an engagement, we recommend setting baselines and establishing target objectives for both mindset and key business metrics. To accomplish this, we will work with you to levy our Mindset Assessment and/or Organizational Assessment across your organization and identify target business outcomes. Conducting these assessments on a regular basis will enable you to measure improvements in mindset and to link the training or change program to your organization’s business results.
