Multi-Generational Integration

Successfully integrating Millennials into your business culture of Boomers and Gen Xers can be a big and difficult challenge. Millennials are different! But they are hard-working, achievement oriented, entrepreneurial and very collaborative.

Our clients successfully engage Millennials. They build trust. They achieve a culture of performance accountability. They develop multi-generational communication with strong interpersonal relationships. Our clients know how to recruit, manage and RETAIN Millennials. This gives them a great competitive advantage.

We provide a proven HR management system that really works – especially with Millennials. It has won two SHRM Impact Awards. If you’re open to considering some productive changes, it just may be the solution you’re looking for.

Our approach involves your entire organization. It measures your culture in strategic issues. It quantifies your individual and aggregate behavior in non-judgmental terms. It holds employees accountable for well-defined job performance expectations. It holds your leadership accountable for clearly stated organizational commitments. It creates a process for continuous performance improvement.

We’ll help you negotiate a performance contract between your company and every manager and employee. The Team Covenant™ defines specifically what you believe, what you are willing to give, and what you expect to get. It requires every individual to take personal ownership for their job.

Our Team Development Strategy™ is an intuitive metrics-driven performance management system. It uses three proprietary software tools to measure behavior, job performance and organizational leadership. It is a system of accountability throughout your company, in all directions.

In his book DRIVE, NY Times best-selling author, Daniel H. Pink, says everyone needs autonomy, mastery, and drive. These are the basics of human motivation, engagement and successful performance – most especially the Millennial Generation. Our award-winning Team Development Strategy™ is a proven and practical system to achieve these accountability-directed results.

Richard Fant, CEO, New Process Steel, LP

"Our task was to reorganize our 105-year-old, outdated culture into a contemporary, streamlined and efficient business model. In the last three years, the Team Covenant and the Team Development Strategy have provided us the platform and process to dramatically transform our workforce from a keep-their-heads-down entitlement mentality into an engaged culture of accountability and highly motivated people."

Thomas Gordon, COO, Catholic Extension

Ruthie Lee-Esene, Human Resource Director, The BTS Team

The Team Covenant has become the foundation of our company’s culture and the basis upon which we work successfully together.”

Terry Andrus, President and CEO of CompleteRx

A Contract for Change

Our award-winning Team Covenant™ establishes a "contract" for change. More than a mission or vision statement, the Team Covenant™ Team covenant - team culture clearly defines what the organization commits to do to create an entrepreneurial work culture based on recognition, reward and respect. And like any good contract, it specifically stipulates what is expected in return from every individual employee’s performance. The Team Covenant™ is a condition of employment.

Skip the Psycho-babble

Building genuine trust and lasting relationships is the key to our clients’ success. Contributing to this is the ongoing use of our proprietary behavioral assessment instrument, PSI, based on more than 30 years of proven corporate experience.

Unlike most other "personality tests", PSI uniquely approaches self- and interpersonal-awareness in a very simple, every day, non-judgmental language that is self-explanatory. It’s easy to understand and then accept the personal accountability required by the Team Covenant™.

4 personality types graphPSI does not require expensive ongoing consulting. It is intuitive and job performance related. PSI makes common sense of our individual differences and gives people “permission” to be themselves along with the “tolerance” (understanding) to accept and collaborate with all the rest of us!

PSI is an exceptional and meaningful component at the core of our clients’ success in achieving multi-generational understanding and cultural integration.

Team Development Strategy™

Our unique performance management system levels the playing field for accountability. From senior leadership to entry level employees, everyone is held accountable to the Team Covenant™. Three continuous and proprietary assessment tools track and report behavioral performance, job performance, leadership performance, and organizational performance.

Our process integrates accountability for everyone. It’s logical. It’s fair. It’s profitable. It works. And it makes sense to Millennials and appeals to their entrepreneurial spirit.
