Leadership Development

Managers, supervisors, and senior leaders learn how to develop trust and collaboration with their direct reports and next levels. The approach is positive, working from the inside out, with focus on self-assessment and 360 reviews.

The needs assessment process includes confidential individual interviews and focus groups. The needs assessment data creates the basis for program objectives, design, and benchmarks, as well as establishing credibility with participants, preparing them for more efficient and productive group learning.

These custom-designed programs are offered in two or three-day retreat formats, with pre-scheduled follow-up implementation segments in three to four months.

Team Building

ECG has a unique approach to building high-level, high-functioning teams. Working with each member, self-assessment tools are utilized to identify communication strengths and challenges, and to develop a clear path for building team synergy. Focus is on three sequential levels of team interaction and influence:

• Team members themselves
• Team members’ direct reports
• Team members’ next-level up

Learning how to build effective collaborative relationships with inside and outside partners is most often the overarching goal for ECG team building programs. Specific objectives are developed from the needs assessment process, which includes confidential individual interviews and focus groups.

Team Building programs are offered in custom-designed, two to three-day retreat formats, with pre-scheduled follow-up segments at regular intervals.


Global Teaming Strategies

Global teams have the classic challenges of building synergy and collaboration within the team. But the scope of interaction and geographic and cultural diversity of most global teams requires extreme, cutting-edge relationship skills to build the essential networks for a global team’s success. The capacity to positively influence partners outside the team is as important as the commitment and connection developed within.

ECG Global Teaming Strategy programs develop the internal and external relationships, influence, networks, and strategies essential for flexible international decision-making. Individual networks are identified and mapped to create new strategic collaborations for global team success.

Global Teaming Programs are offered in custom-designed, two or three- day retreat formats, scheduled quarterly or semi-annually. Telephone interviews with team members prior to each retreat create the needs assessment data from which objectives and benchmarks are established.

Diversity Initiatives

The potential bottom-line benefits of a successful diversity initiative are well-documented: improved morale, higher productivity, and expanded market-share. However, the down-side risks are high. If the program is not comprehensive and does not fit the organizational culture, increased litigation is an unfortunate common repercussion. Litigation prevention has been our bottom-line objective for 35 years.

These programs are customized and developed to meet the client’s unique needs. Programs are designed as flexible modules, built on client strengths and current efforts. Depending on client needs, program components include:

Global Teaming Strategies

Global teams have the challenges of building synergy and collaboration despite distance and technology. But the scope of interaction due to geographic and cultural diversity requires the development of important relationship skills to build the essential networks for a global team’s success. The capacity to positively influence partners outside the team is as important as the commitment and connection developed within.

ECG Global Teaming Strategy programs develop the internal and external relationships, influence, networks, and strategies essential for flexible international decision-making. Individual networks are identified and mapped to create new strategic collaborations for global team success.

Diversity & Inclusion

Forward-thinking organizations understand the need for diversity and inclusion, and these organizations know the negative cost of “business as usual” with homogeneous leadership teams and staff. The advantages of an inclusive and diverse work environment are well established, with some of the documented benefits including:

• Higher morale
• Increased productivity
• Less groupthink
• More innovation and creativity
• Enhanced community relations
• Litigation prevention
• Reduced attrition

Diversity & Inclusion programs are customized to meet the client’s unique needs. Programs are designed as flexible modules, built on client strengths and current efforts. ECG has collaborated with a range of clients for Diversity & Inclusion programs: multinational corporations, non-profit organizations, institutions of higher education.
