Whether in a small group, retreat setting, or large conference event, people will leave with their spirits uplifted and their hearts challenged.


COACHING


Leaders can sometimes feel isolated in their roles as executives or CEO’s. There are heavy decisions to manage, with much at stake. More than one CEO  has told me that they have never before had a “safe place” to confidentially talk through the stresses of leadership, personnel struggles, ethical dilemmas, board development, or succession planning with a trusted coach who has been there.

Approaches

Strengths Development

Beginning with a focus on strengths, and the pioneering work of Dr. Donald Clifton, individuals, teams, and organizations can see growth, engagement, and overall life impact from an ongoing pursuit of excellence and their inherent uniqueness. The combination of strengths, gifts, and talents are what make us unique, and wonderfully capable to live lives of impact and purpose.

Strengths-Based Leadership

Consistent with the individual strengths development approach, organizations can see marked growth, impact, and return on investment, from identifying and implementing a leadership approach and culture based on leveraging strengths, gifts, and talents to overcome challenges and obstacles.

Visions, Values & Actions Framework

These three components are encompassed in a sequence and process that identifies what your desired future is, what values drive your desired future, and then designs a progression of actions and steps to arrive at your desired future and outcomes.

Career Planning & Preparation

For those who are early career professionals, a reflective and personal process examines career motivations and origins, inspirations and aspirations, to create a multi-year career roadmap. For those professionals who are mid-career and desire an examination of their next career chapter, or “second half” the process examines longer-term work goals and legacy considerations.

Work, Calling & Vocation

For those who desire a stronger integration of their personal values, life’s work and career, CMG offers an intentional examination of your values in order to help form a clearer vocational path driven by your strengths, purpose and passions.


MENTORING


Our global workforce is in the midst of a historic shift, with Baby Boomers retiring by the thousands, while the largest generation in the workforce is now Millennials.
With a generation of leaders and employees in transition, with a new generation of emerging leaders in the workplace, the importance of knowledge transfer, people development, culture and mentoring has never been more critical.
Does your organization currently have a robust mentoring program in place to access this wealth of skills and knowledge, while investing in newer hires, and early career professionals in their 30’s?
