Slipping the grip

What do you do when risk aversion prevents you from showing up as your best self? We propose a four-step approach to observing and eventually being able to alter your behavior in high-stakes situations, which works anytime making meaningful behavioral change requires changing your mindset as well.

Feedback from all angles

When executives want to clarify their professional possibilities and priorities, we often suggest a 360-degree feedback assessment. But the benefits aren’t just for the person who gets the report. The process itself can foster a sense of shared ownership for a colleague’s success, creating a team-oriented approach to development.
