Smarter Management: The 5 Step Predictive System

Want to quickly improve how you lead and run your business? Want to effectively train and develop highly competent leaders and managers?  Are you an HR professional who wants to rapidly improve your business acumen, becoming a credible, valuable business partner and internal consultant ?

We've created a predictive system to do just that! It's a radically different approach that provides the best value and return-on-investment. The 5 Step Predictive System is Phase 3 of our Smart Management Initiative.


As I mentioned in the back story (which I recommend you read), one of my most significant lessons in 20+ years of business has been that very few businesses have a reliable way to confidently, consistently get needed results through people.

My solution? Combine simple principles of human behavior (human performance technology) with a comprehensive system to do just that. It's truly an unconventional approach! Forget about  leadership or management "style" ...think system -- an "all-in-one" system that builds and profitably manages your business, optimizes your operations while building the capabilities of your leaders, managers and individual contributors.

Why a system?...consider its description:

> A set of detailed methods, procedures and routines created to carry out a specific activity, perform a duty, or solve a problem.

> An organized, purposeful structure that consists of interrelated and interdependent elements (components, entities, departments, teams, factors, members, parts etc.). These elements continually influence one another (directly or indirectly) to maintain their activity and the existence of the system, in order to achieve the goal of the system.

What's the value of a system? “all systems have:

> inputs, outputs and feedback mechanisms, 

> maintain an internal steady-state (called homeostasis) despite a changing external environment, 

> have boundaries that are usually defined by the system observer.”

When looking closer at the definitions you’ll find some key strategies and exceptional benefits that make a systems approach to building and managing a business through people (leadership & people management) very unique.


What does a system provide?

Considering the definition of system...

>Detailed methods, procedures and routines (a routine is a habit), specific activity... these are elements you can count on, they provide:

o order

o structure = organized, purposeful, it holds interdependent parts together (no silos) to maintain their activity to achieve the goal = keeps the “gas in the tank”.

o continuity

o certainty

o as well as free up a leader’s mental space to focus on other business building activities. 

o Also “maintains internal steady-state”, despite changing external forces.


**A system is a "technology" . Our system incorporates another - human performance technology. Learn more here.  A Barely Recognized Technology You Need to Know

How is it predictive?

Consider the definition of predictive...

> to declare or indicate in advance; especially - foretell on the basis of observation, experience, or scientific reason.

Clearly a system, solves the problem of a lack of continuity and structure in leadership and management capabilities, performance and development of both the leader and the business.  Combined with our expertise in human behavior and human performance technology, The 5 Step Predictive System for High Performance serves as a comprehensive solution to consistently and successfully achieve business results.

Can This System Be Applied to More Established Businesses or Governmental Entities?

It absolutely can -- in fact the system was primarily created in legacy environments. The key is working it within small groups/teams so the accountability component can be adequately implemented.

It can be used to: improve teams, grow leaders & managers at any level, as a framework for succession planning or pre-promotion initiates, develop organizational strength and agility, improve operations, productivity, as a tool for growth initiatives.

"I knew there would be a return on investment  right from the beginning. We saw a financial impact almost immediately. I had no doubt this pilot would work. Nothing else had worked and we needed to try something new. Knowing what I know now, I would have paid  more for this engagement."

Wow! Probably a rarity when a client offers to pay more!
