Three Waves of Change® Products and Services
The Three Waves of Change℠ method of executive coaching and consulting is a unique suite of services and products designed to address the specific needs common to senior executives who are transitioning into a new job or role. The primary distinguishing characteristic of this suite of services is that it enables the accelerated iterative learning of the senior executive and his or her team beyond the typical focus on the first 100 days of transition. This iterative learning includes multiple types of assessments, diagnostic tools, and change management processes that enable the senior executive and his extended team to implement a series of organizational changes that ultimately result in improved sustainable business performance.
Depending on the client's circumstances, these services may include:
Individual Assessment of the Transitioning Executive
Pre-entry or early-entry assessment of the new executive's dominant personality and management style (collectively referred to as "momentum" in the Three Waves of Change℠ approach) which may potentially clash with the existing culture and recent perceptions and expectations of incumbent key stakeholders and opinion leaders. The assessment is intended to help the executive avoid or better anticipate and manage many of the clashes that will inevitably occur.
These assessments may include 360 degree assessments at key turning points in the transition process.These are progress evaluations of the transitioning executive's ability to establish credibility and begin to implement effective diagnostic and change processes.
Individual and Team Assessment of Key Members of the Executive's Team
These assessments include assessment processes to evaluate the person-job match for individuals and to ensure that there are the necessary complimentary roles and perspectives to enable a high performing executive team. These assessments supplement the ongoing assessment of each team member's abilities to manage the diagnosis and implementation of organizational change.
The development of the executive's team occurs as a result of continuously improving the ways in the which the team works together to diagnose and implement real changes in the business.
