Leadership & Organizational Intelligence (OrgIQ™)

All too often, new and innovative practices are discovered that demonstrate promising outcomes, adding volumes to the “what works” literature. As a result, there can be tremendous pressure, in every organization, to implement these innovations and show results, especially when those outcomes are directly tied to the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. However, these new and innovative ways of doing business have not been enough on their own to create positive and sustainable outcomes that can be replicated over time. This is because understanding what works in is only half of the formula. The other half is HOW innovations are implemented. The best and most highly researched evidence-based practices cannot exist on their own. They must be delivered by practitioners and installed within organizations that are often messy, imperfect and come with established cultures, reward mechanisms and leadership behaviors. When these organizational artifacts are not aligned with the interventions that are being used, failure results. This is the challenge faced by organizations trying to break free from status quo and obtain the outcomes they can be most proud of.

Implementation Leadership

Implementation Leadership Academy is a provocative, introspective, and interactive academy designed for executives, managers and change agents leading organizations through the challenging work of change.

We also offer basic classroom training and plenary presentations on organizational change using the IDEATE™ framework.

Emergenetics Team Building & Leadership Development

Emergenetics is the merging of two ideas - our behavior emerging from our life experiences and our genetic traits. Emergenetics is rooted in the concept that who you are today is the emergence of your behavior, genetic makeup and life experiences. Emergenetics provides a clear way to understand this intersection of nature and nurture through the Emergenetics Profile, built on four Thinking Attributes and three Behavioral Attributes that every person exhibits. The Emergenetics Profile is designed from a neuroscience- based psychometric foundation to give each of us an in-depth knowledge of our unique make-up, and provides an understanding of the person that we are. ACJI offers Emergenetics group facilitation to help you learn the concept of Cognitive Collaboration using differences as strengths, and also to identify your leadership style as it relates to organizational culture.

Lead@Work™

Lead@Work™ is a virtual learning track for supervisors and leaders and introduces new tools and strategies related to implementation, innovation, and organizational culture. Facilitated live or via webinar format, these virtual learning sessions are a great follow-up opportunity once you have completed the Implementation Leadership Academy.

Topic examples include:

Addressing Adaptive Problems, Engaging Staff through Change, Shifting Culture, Three Degrees of Appreciative Thinking, Cognitive Collaboration & Three Levels of Fidelity.
