Internal Use of our Leadership Tools
We believe culture should be built from the top-down. These are the steps we advise to drive culture into the business.
- Support the CEO in walking the talk through a 360 and executive coaching.
- All the executives then get executive coaching. The CEO reviews each of their leadership plans to make sure they meet the CEO’s highest priorities. The executive coaching also includes one-on-ones, holding people accountable, difficult conversations, and meeting facilitations.
- All people managers go through a “360-lite” which is just a self-assessment and a manager-assessment, and they build a leadership plan working with an embedded coach, external coach, or their manager. They receive online training in giving constructive feedback, difficult conversations, managing meetings, and holding people accountable.
- Finally, all individual contributors go through the 360-lite process for collaborators and go through in-person or on-line training
Leadership Assessment Tools
Hundreds of companies, including over 100 startups, have used the SLI to get feedback for their CEO and executives. The SLI’s 46 leadership behaviors have been continuously refined based on how leaders gained or lost the confidence of their teams, and the toolset is designed to create immediate behavioral change.
Using the SLI toolset, a leader will:
- Get feedback to identify their strengths and improvement opportunities.
- Understand the positive and negative impact they have on other people & teams.
- Identify specific issues and be in dialogue with their peers to improve collaboration.
- Establish 3-4 key improvement opportunities and create a detailed plan to up-level their leadership.
- Have a full toolset to develop and practice leadership skills.
Training for Challenging Conversations
The Saturn C.U.B.E. for Conflict™ training was created to boil down complex models of communication into one practical, easy-to-use model that helps people avoid the most common mistakes in difficult conversations.
Our online training platform is built to be led by in-house facilitators. We believe that internal training solutions are better than hiring external facilitators:
- Less expensive
- Customized to your specific culture and business challenges
- Integrated with onboarding
- Online and accessible to distributed work teams
- Builds team culture
