Creating a Culture of Transformation

Taking the position that everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than themselves, organizations incorporating the latest information on human performance create a cultural of transformation. Are you maximizing people, process and technology?

High human productivity can accelerate an environment of adapting to change and ensuring a mission ready workforce!

D Group designs, coaches and facilitates programs utilizing synchronous and asynchronous platforms. Developing a program utilizes a Job Task Analysis, Evidence-based Industry Guidelines, ADDIE Instructional Design Model, Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning Domains and Kirkpatrick’s 4-Level Training Evaluation Model. Instructional design can be newly customized, adapted from recommended resources, or updated using a client’s current program. The learning experience is tailored to meet our clients’ goals and objectives.

Fundamental to the design of any program is the principle that transformation begins with an assessment. Using a variety of scientifically validated assessment tools help individuals gain an understanding of their preferences, behaviors and how it impacts their effectiveness.

Leadership tools vary in topics to include: interpersonal relationships, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, influence style, behavior change, personal wellness, decision-making and more. Tools are identified that integrate with a client organization’s values and supports the specific Leadership Competency Model, Leadership Effectiveness Framework.
