Organizational Alignment and Collaboration
Are your employees telling you what you want to hear, but not what you NEED to know? Get everybody on the same page, and solidify alignment with ‘conflict collaboration.’TM
Whether you are going through a reorganization or simply formulating new strategies, gaining buy-in from your employees is crucial to collaboration. Employees who are not on the same page fear being viewed as impolite or creating conflict for speaking up. These employees are a detriment to any organization, as they become “yes men,” who echo agreement, instead of discussing important issues or ideas.
Oftentimes the efforts of an organization are unintentionally sabotaged from within, simply from what is not being said.
Fear, negativity, and unresolved conflict cause missed opportunities and obstruct innovation. Worst of all, these things keep employees from discussing difficult issues, which leaves YOU in the dark.

Ilene G. Reid, Executive Director, ACC National Capital Region
Steven came to me highly recommended from other areas in my organization when I first took over a failing business unit. I had great people on my leadership team, but they needed cohesion and alignment and were all pulling in different directions. From his very first session with us, Steven walked into a room of people glaring at him and won them over. We noticed immediate results- within 10 days, the hostility was removed from their relationships and some of the most difficult players were speaking to each other using Steven’s terms. People understood the value of this extremely fast, and the work took hold in the organization.
Larry Cox, COO, EMM Technology
Compared to other speakers and trainers I have used in the past, Steven is not only much better overall, but his material is practical, easy to use, understandable and backed up with experiences and credibility. So many other consultants are stuck and set in their ways, but Steven worked with me to come up with custom solutions to my organization’s needs and did not just apply a general cookie cutter method.
