Excellence - the successful pursuit of your well-chosen goals.
As a leader you must lead all changes necessary for your organization to meet its goals. The Six Disciplines Excellence Program is an ongoing, coach-led program that builds stronger more successful organizations.
It is built on three key pillars:
Performance Management is about improving employee engagement so employees are continuously learning, communicating and collaborating with purpose. Is employee engagement your first priority? Discover our Performance Management Program.
Building a clear strategy and managing its execution helps your organization get where you want it to go. Do you have a specific opportunity to pursue, growth issue, or other business challenge you want to resolve? Discover our Strategy Execution Program.
Get clarity about what you really want to achieve. Is it more growth, better teamwork, greater profitability, improved quality, or perhaps even a generational hand-off?

For decades, many passionate groups have been compiling performance best practices (Baldrige, EFQM, QMS, Six Sigma, etc.) They often use different terms, such as organizational effectiveness, performance excellence, total quality and continuous improvement but they all conclude organizations perform better when they know how to:
Best practices are integrated so you don't have to. Using 15 years of field tested research, we have figured out how many of these best practices relate to one another and built them into a single step-by-step methodoloy called Six Disciplines.
Best practices are automated. The Six Disciplines suite of performance management software (apps) streamlines use of these best practices. Strategic goals all the way down to daily to-do's are managed and accessible on any device.
Leadership development is built in to our program. Leadership development workshops teach the same competencies used in the Six Disciplines Methodoogy. And then, these same best practices are put into practice on a day-to-day basis through our processes and software.
A seasoned coach guides your progress. Their role is to serve as a long-term trusted adviser guiding the implementation and sustaining of best-practices as your organization grows and changes.
"I come out of a large public company. I've done a lot of strategic planning work. What's different for me is the continual accountability in the Six Disciplines process. I've gotten a regimen and discipline. Every week I meet with my senior leadership team, and we literally going through the battlefield objectives and the key initiatives that we agreed to as a part of our vision 20/20."
"75% of the companies we invest in are on the Six Disciplines program. It’s not for everyone. The requirement of a CEO to really commit to Six Disciplines is what makes it work. If the CEO doesn't believe in it or isn't willing to commit the time, effort and energy that it requires, then it won’t work. But for those that do the pay-off is there. A recent one our investments that is following the Six Disciplines program more than doubled revenue and tripled EBITA in four years."
