Concepts based on research and used in practice with actual businesses.
These exercises have been tested and have yielded results with our clients and our personal businesses. Below, you will find a collection of specific tools for businesses that we have developed for use in our business and continue to use in our corporate workshops, courses and retreats. During our programs, you learn why we use these tools, how to use these tools and we discuss the benefits of using these tools. We have made them available for you to download and try for yourself.

2X2 DECISION MATRIX
The 2×2 Matrix is a simple yet elegant tool designed to assist individuals and organizations in prioritizing ideas and initiatives. Used in conjunction with a myriad of brainstorming techniques during any planning session, the process allows you or your team to plot all of the ideas onto a quadrant that provides two competing forces.
The SWOT analysis is a great tool to use in preparation for a strategic planning session. This exercise can be done as a brainstorming session with a small group, but we do find it very impactful for each individual to work independently to identify the organization’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats, and then meet and compare.
This concept, adapted from Matthew Kelly in his 2007 book The Dream Manager, is a fantastic activity to get your personal dreams written out on paper for you to visualize what it is that you really want. We highly recommend this activity as part of any organization to conduct with and for their employees’ personal enrichment.
