WHAT WE DO
Great organizations are built by great teams. Teams that work better together help you retain your people, attract top talent, and provide the best service to your customers.
As an executive leadership coach and consultant firm, we work with service-based organizations as a leadership coach and consultant. When you work with Kathleen Riessen and Company you'll get quick results by optimizing your team's leadership and communication skills. Most of our clients see improved financial performance, greater innovation, better employee retention and happier customers. Over the last 17 years, we've worked with hundreds of organizations to build their teams and create opportunities for growth through a very simple process.
Leaders come to us when they know that their teams aren't working at their highest potential. Most of the time they have a gut feeling of what's happening, but aren't exactly sure how to articulate the problem or how to solve it. They turn to us for an outside perspective and a proven method to build great teams.
COACHING AND TRAINING PROGRAMS
Team Dynamics Training And Assessment
This interactive training is designed to:
Get your team to see the bigger picture
Understand what common challenges slow down your team and reduce productivity
Introduce new language that your team can use to better understand and support each other
Learn how to set achievable goals and support each other to reach big goals together
We start with an initial meeting with you to understand the problem you're trying to solve. Then we meet with your entire team in a group setting to understand the team dynamic and provide you with a comprehensive assessment. After that, we work with you to design a custom plan to propel your team to greatness. Sometimes these first two steps are enough. Other times, leaders want additional training, consulting, and coaching.
Executive coaching is designed to support key leaders in:
