Improving Organizations

Coaching an organization or enterprise requires a depth of vision, experience, and capability like no other. You want someone who can understand your culture and handle your complexity. Then you need someone to accompany you in seeing the vision of what could be, beyond what currently is. You need someone who can partner with your leaders to create collaborative strategies, innovative approaches, and new systems, services, and products that raise your top and bottom lines. You need someone with a high level of integrity and respect for all the hard-working people you call your corporate customers and family.

Coach Phil Donihe and the Innovekt Team will:

» Share and sharpen your vision for a prosperous future, or enable your creation of a new vison as you request

» Develop new strategies and approaches to achieve key goals

» Create sustainable extraordinary organization performance

» Realize new levels of leadership, engagement, understanding, collaboration, and performance

» Find, develop, and leverage the innovation strengths in your organization to create new products and services optimized for success

Phil says, “I thrive on understanding the complexity of a business enterprise and working with all aspects of it to enhance the performance of its people and the organization as a whole! I learned early on from such giants as Dr. W. Edwards Deming and Mr. Stuart Pugh what it takes to create positive and lasting change. I’ve learned through extensive business management experience what it takes to work with people and organizations to optimize performance. Working with organizations and teams to create new capabilities, products, and services is the most fun anyone can have at work!

Science-based Selection

Have you, or anyone you know, ever selected someone for a role in an organization and discovered later that they were not a good fit?

Placing the right person into a role in your organization is a vital element for business success. The complex interactions between the new person, leaders, and other people on your team can make all the difference. Competencies and skills can be taught – synergy with your team, your organization, and its goals is more challenging.



Improve the relationships in your organization, and with your customers, NOW!

Business, University, Government Leaders: Win more often! Enable your leaders and team members to build relationships quickly and effectively by respecting the unique preferences of teammates and customers!

Has anyone on your team ever had an interaction when they just didn’t seem to “click” with the other person? Do they know what went wrong? It could have been that their approach just didn’t match, in one or more ways, with how the other person prefers to relate with others. Human interactions are so complicated that it can be difficult to know how each unique person feels respected.

Leave the “trial-and-error” and “one-size-fits-all” approaches behind and give your leadership and team processes the advantage of science-based relationship building!

With iRespectYOU™ you can quickly and easily find the approach that works for them, and for you, by using the leading-edge relationship building system!
