We partner with small and medium-sized organizations, institutions, and organizations to help them re-invent what it means to optimize employee performance. We focus on the development of the individual and collective capabilities of human capital. Our goal is to serve as the catalyst for increased Energy, Engagement, Execution, and Excellence through evidence-based, professional development that is customized and has lasting impact.
Many times, organizations leverage traditional and inadequate professional development, such as one-time workshops, courses, team-building events, retreats. These offerings show little return on investment. Few of these learning and development opportunities create a better culture, climate, transformation, or competitive advantage.
Our methodology is scalable. Thus, small and medium-sized organizations (that may not have comprehensive Learning and Development departments) can now offer learning opportunities that are transformational instead of transactional, across the organization. High-quality professional development is no longer something that is limited to a few select groups.
“Only one out of five teams is high performing; a rather dismal statistic” according to Wageman, Nunes, Buruss, and Hackman (2008). The landscape that organizations, institutions, and businesses navigate is complex and dynamic. To meet current demands and future aspirations, important work has shifted to teams. Teaming offers collective talent, multiple skills, diverse contributions, and accelerated learning that far outperforms what any individual can accomplish on his or her own.
Keller and Meaney (2017) conducted a study in which they asked over 5,000 executives about their experiences with high performing teams. The executives pointed to the importance of great teamwork. They said that great teamwork was characterized by high-quality interaction, trust, open communication, and a willingness to embrace conflict.
Most teams do not become high performing on their own. Supports are needed to help teams flourish amid relational, operational, and systemic challenges. Peter Hawkins (2011, 2014) defines team coaching as “direct interaction with a team intended to help members make coordinated and task-appropriate use of their collective resources in accomplishing the teams’ work.”
MiraNous helps teams (leadership teams, project teams, ad hoc teams) have higher energy, engagement, execution, and excellence through the development of individual members and the team as a collective unit. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to begin a conversation.
