Learn to walk the talk

If only walking the talk were as easy as it sounds.

In this era of rapid change and globalization, where uncertainty exists across time horizons from functional process improvement to core product development, to new sources of growth, leaders must straddle search and execution.

Who is your trusted advisor for helping between the two across all growth horizons?

Moves the Needle experienced practitioners provide personal coaching and advising all along the journey.

The Leadership Development program consists of workshops, coaching, and hands-on exercises that develop the skills required to run a high-performance innovation team.

When spearheading an effective innovation program, leaders need to support their teams in non-traditional ways.

Leaders practice mentoring techniques and develop the insights needed to ask the right questions, track the right metrics, hold their teams accountable, and clear the way for their success.

Our workshops focus leaders on understanding “search” principles through lean innovation practices, such as developing empathy, testing assumptions, working in an agile fashion, and leveraging data and insights to make decisions.

Leaders use these skills to balance where lean innovation is applied across the continuum of execution and search. Furthermore, leaders practice mentoring, and develop new skills to measure the team's progress toward impact. Moves the Needle experts provide personal advising and continuous support throughout the entire experience to help leaders truly understand their role in the transformation process.

Through the methodology shared and great teamwork with colleagues from different functions, I learned that we can achieve so much by moving out of the comfort zone and going bolder in our actions as long as it is aligned with objectives to solve the customer problems.
