Has your organization “always done it that way”? If “that way” works, great. But what about when it doesn’t work anymore?
More and more, in a constantly changing and complex environment, “that way” of doing things tends to stop working. More pressure is now placed on leaders to think “outside-the-box” to find creative solutions to issues and guide the organization towards innovation and evolution.
Without proper guidance, ambitious leaders can risk taking on too many new initiatives before acquiring sufficient resources to fund them.
The Alpha Team has guided many organizations through changes of environment, both internal and external.
We provide services including: Training, Coaching, Leadership Development, Project Management, and Staff Augmentation.
Team Training- There are many things to take into account when training a team: the current organizational culture, how a team learns and the ways that management will implement changes throughout the organization. In addition, Head Start programs manage federal regulations. Head Start Performance Standards, local requirements and those of other programs in collaboration models.
Not only do we identify opportunities, we prioritize what needs to be changed, so all of the different parts of the organization can move cohesively and coherently towards the new vision. In addition to training for organizational success, the Alpha tea has expertise across Head Start content areas including: New Head Start Performance Standards, Management Systems, ERSEA, Fiscal, Education, and Federal Monitoring Reviews, Data Use and Integration, etc.
Team Coaching- Every successful team needs a strong relationship foundation as well as a commitment to individual and collective performance. In our Team Coaching program, we coach Team Members to excel by building alignment, improving communication, resolving conflict, strengthening mutual respect and understanding, and building resilience. These changes result in improved performance and better experiences for staff as well the children, parents, and community served. With a focus on developing these core team skills, there is a noticeable increase in team performance and team satisfaction. Increasing these factors also correlate with reducing staff turnover.
Executive Coaching- Effective organizational development needs effective executive leadership. Not only does a strong leader build quality systems, they inspire and support everyone in an organization to do what needs to be done to make the organization’s mission and vision come to life by investing in their staff.
Strong leaders, however, aren’t easily available. In fact, strong leaders are often developed.
Emerging leaders accelerate their development and build their capacity to perform with guidance and insight of an experienced, trusted advisor.
Current leaders always need an objective perspective from an outside resource, someone who will not be afraid to ask the “hard questions” about how the day to day operations of an organization and challenge their belief systems in service maximizing the leader’s potential.
Not only does asking these “hard questions” help leaders develop emotional intelligence, social intelligence, and relationship-based intelligence, they also cultivate performance management skills, such as developing a strong organizational culture aligned to mission, building strong and invested teams, aligning members of the workforce to understand how their individual efforts help bring the organization’s vision to life, building integrated organizational and employee systems and competencies, providing consistent and effective feedback to improve employee performance, enrolling and building partnerships with stakeholders, and overall better results for the organization.
Great leaders can only be as great as the investments made in their development.
Leadership Development- Alpha team members are certified in the Leadership Circle Profile (LCP).
The LCP is a model for creative and effective leadership, a framework for leadership development and a suite of assessment tools. It is valid and reliable because it is based on research and evidence.
LCP is the only instrument that measures the two primary leadership domains: Creative Competencies and Reactive Tendencies — and integrates this information so that key opportunities for development immediately rise to the surface.
What’s unique about the LCP is it reveals each leader’s Operating System: the internal assumptions (beliefs) that influences behavior. This allows a manager to see how their inner thoughts translate into a productive or unproductive styles of leadership. Ultimately, the LCP increases inner-awareness to make outward behavior more positive and productive.
Project Management- Effective Project Management is the backbone of every mission-driven organization. Initiating projects, planning for time and cost, planning for risks, best communication practices, change control, and executing the project closeout phase.
Not only does our team understand the complexities and nuances of mission-driven organizations. We have experience finding strengths and filling in the gaps of organizations and communicating with leaders, staff of various positions, board of directors and parent/community stakeholders.
