As performance consultants, we are sticklers for feedback. Feedback tells us how we’re doing, where we are, and how far off from our goals our present position is. Think of assessments as a Global Positioning System (GPS). Like the real GPS, a U.S.-owned utility that provides users with positioning, navigation, and timing services, our assessments help our clients discover where they are.
We know; we turned a simple description into a nerd moment. Seriously though, we believe you can’t know where you’re going without a starting point. Our assessments allow you to discover where you are before we plot the course for where you want to be and what it’ll take to get there.
1. To give instruction or advice
Even the world’s best athletes have coaches… Why? Because coaching supports the achievement of extraordinary goals and sustains life-changing behavior.
How? Accountability. Powerful Questions. Strategic Thinking. Collaboration.
As smart as many of us are, we can’t watch ourselves as we play the game of our lives. Having a coach who can observe, critique, and guide our effort, tactics, and critical thinking is essential for improved effort, tactics, and critical thinking. Essentially, a coach uncovers our blindspots so that we live more authentically and unapologetically.
Oh, and then there’s that valuable thing called Support. We need friends and family to celebrate our wins; we need a coach to help us recalibrate and learn after our losses.
Training? Development? Or Training & Development?
Training is the process of teaching someone a new skill.
Development is the process of getting people to use the skills they already have more effectively.
Now, which would you prefer for yourself or your staff?
What if you could have the best of both worlds? Learning and sharpening skills AND mastery of how to use these skills?
That’s what we do with all our programs.
We take current attitudes, skills, and knowledge (ASK), add specific goals and positive behavioral change to bring about improved individual and organizational results.
What do you remember most about the last speaker you listened to?
Exactly! It wasn’t about the speaker; it was about you!
It’s how the speaker made you feel.
Our approach is, borrowing from our good friend Dr. Steven Beebe, Audience-Centered.
It’s not about us; it’s about everyone in the audience that entrusts us with their time.
Dr. Makai’s humorous, down-to-earth, yet energetic delivery has made him a favorite at conferences, corporate events, and roundtables. When you engage Kozhi, your event is guaranteed a content-rich presentation delivered with conviction, passion, and expertise. Not only will Kozhi tailor the presentation to your theme, he infuses rich examples from his international travel, professional basketball career, years of experience working with executives, managers, and teams, and, yes, lots of nerdy tidbits.
Your audience will carry with them a lasting impression and compulsion to focus on results-oriented approaches to staying competitive in a volatile market.
