Bob Whipple works with organizations and management teams to improve performance. Starting with an assessment of the current situation and in-depth interviews with leaders, he crafts custom-designed interventions. These programs are laser focused on the specific needs of an organization so they are efficient and have obvious, lasting results.

Specific strength in strategic processes: The Leadergrow approach is much faster than most conventional processes and yields outstanding strategic plans. Typical planning sessions for organizations are conducted in 3-4 sessions of 4 hours each. The secret is to do some quality homework outside the meeting time so that there is less confusion and dithering during the actual sessions. The other advantage of the Leadergrow approach is that it yields a complete strategy on two sides of a single sheet of paper, which results in greater understanding and facilitates communication of the strategy throughout the organization.

  • Helping Leadership teams build higher trust
