ALIGNING PEOPLE, PROCESS AND POLICY TO CULTIVATE NEW POTENTIAL...BECAUSE POTENTIAL IS A RENEWABLE RESOURCE
SPROUT! offers a wide variety of coaching, consulting and freelance services customized to your specific needs. Our areas of expertise are organized below by People, Process, Policy, and Potential. However, the four categories are almost always linked. It is through many years of experience and a systemic, holistic approach that we can sort through our extensive toolkit to find the right solution for you.
 
We'll start with a free consult to talk about your situation, its challenges, opportunities, and your goals. Then we'll take a look at potential solutions and develop an action plan to meet your goals.
Let's SPROUT something new today!

PEOPLE

 
A group of people get together and exist as an institution we call a company so they are able to accomplish something collectively that they could not accomplish separately – they make a contribution to society, a phrase which sounds trite but is fundamental.

David Packard

  • Personal & Professional Development Coaching - One-on-one conversations focused on clarifying goals and identifying growth and performance opportunities.

  • Talent Acquisition Strategies - In a global, connected economy, companies must compete for talent. Hiring the right person for the job, while critical, is no longer the sole concern for recruiters and hiring managers. Creating a great candidate experience is essential not only for those who land the job, but the unsuccessful candidates as well. Exceptional talent acquisition strategies incorporate Employer Branding, Targeted Selection, and world class Onboarding processes.

  • Talent Management - Organizations exist to achieve results and need people who can consistently perform at a high level if they hope to remain in operation. Outstanding  Performance Management Systems clearly identify performance objectives aligned to the organizational vision, mission and goals. With an increasingly transient workforce, retaining top performers is a growing challenge. Employers must consider Culture, Employee Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion, and Total Rewards as major factors in talents' decision to join, stay or leave an organization.  Leadership Development, Mentoring Programs, High Potential and Rotational Development Programs, as well asTeam Building have always been important, but are increasingly so among Millennials who want continual feedback, appropriate challenges and plenty of developmental opportunities.

  • Training & Development - Training isn't always the answer, but when it is, you want someone with a thorough understanding of Adult Learning Theory, Instructional Design, Training Delivery, and Evaluation - someone who can maximize Learning Transfer and Application, and suggest strategies to set you on the path to Developing a Learning Organization.

PROCESS

 
Business and human endeavors are systems… we tend to focus on snapshots of isolated parts of the system and wonder why our deepest problems never get solved.

Peter Senge

  • Process Mapping, Analysis & Optimization - Create a visual representation and gain consensus on even the most complex activities. Look for opportunities to improve, eliminate redundancy and reduce cycle time.

  • Documentation - Knowledge Management, Compliance and Performance are all improved with well-designed Guidebooks, Manuals, and Job Aids, whether in print or online.

  • Process Facilitation - Facilitation lets you focus first on the outcome, not the process, yet still provides the opportunity to learn how to run Effective Meetings, and conduct Situational Analysis, and Decision Analysis in the work environment instead of the classroom.

  • Talent & Performance Management Systems - Bringing structure and consistency to managing people improves both individual and organization performance, beginning with Competency Modeling all the way through Objective Setting, Performance Appraisal, Rewards & Recognition, and Succession Planning

  • Evaluation - Giving you the ability to gauge past performance and inform your future. SPROUT! can Measure Training Effectiveness, and design and conduct 180° & 360° Assessments, Engagement & Pulse Surveys, and Focus Groups.

 

POLICY

Start with good people, lay out the rules, communicate with your employees, motivate them and reward them. If you do all those things effectively, you can't miss.

Lee Iacocca

  • Strategic Planning - Aligning Vision, Mission, Values and Organizational Objectives to define the future of your organization.

  • Change Management - Change is inevitable, necessary and a disruptive and emotional process. Planning for change eases the pains of transition, maintains a higher level of productivity throughout the process, and leads to better outcomes.

POTENTIAL

 
An organization's ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.

Jack Welch

  • Project Management - Whether a single phase or the entire project, SPROUT! will tackle project Analysis, Planning, Implementation, Monotoring and Closure.

  • Event Planning - SPROUT! can help you create Meetings, Conferences, and Retreats that are fun, inspiring and highly productive.

  • Special Projects - Short-term, Intermittent, Ongoing; whenever you need an extra set of hands to meet objectives.
