Baseline Assessment

Prior to establishing any solutions, Dialexis’ 25-year experience acknowledges the importance of understanding the organization’s existing corporate initiatives before instituting any strategy. Simply teaming with an organization and executing on a reactive basis will, at best, lead to short-term gain.  Substantial results and significant “return on investment” (ROI) requires research to understand what the proper strategy and approach is.  Moving immediately into training without a definitive understanding of leadership’s corporate vision is putting the cart before the horse.  Achieving corporate objectives requires a clear path of mutual and accountable expectations and a partnership mentality to deliver long term significant ROI.

Canoe Theory – Recruiting & Building Top Performers

Applying The Canoe Theory principles, based upon the book The Canoe Theory, is at the core of building a strong united team. The fundamental principle of The Canoe Theory is “simplicity lies on the other side of complexity.”  Harnessing the skill, energy and hearts of many is often viewed as complex.  This simple philosophy when delivered throughout the entire organization will bring an organizations’ culture together.  The fundamental formula of the seven tenets formatted in The Canoe Theory book recognizes that everyone being part of the same team and “rowing” all in the same direction is essential for growth, profitability, employee and shareholders’ satisfaction!  This simple yet powerful metaphor is a game changer for obtaining results.

Once the organization embraces The Canoe Theory mindset, recruiting at any level will ensure selecting the right talent. Hiring the wrong individual is an expensive proposition that not only costs the company money, but often destroys cultures. The Canoe Theory has been field tested in masses of industries and with large and small companies alike. The end results are increased employee satisfaction, retention of top talent, attracting key new members of the team, higher performance at all levels and a new refreshing level of accountability.

Leadership Mechanics – for Emerging New Leaders

Leadership Mechanics has been developed for the emerging new leader.  Its focus is on developing the primary skills required of a great leader such as: motivating, conflict resolution, uniting, building, developing, mentoring, communicating and retaining an elite team.  Leadership is the key to an organization reaching its goals. It is for these reasons Dialexis has developed Leadership Mechanics For The Emerging Leader.  How often we have seen top performers thrown in a leadership role with any proper guidance.  Therefore, Leadership Mechanics is applicable for those aspiring to improve the tactical aspects of managing/leading an operation.  The information has been derived from real world experiences and is presented through case studies, lectures, role play and open forum dialogue – “real world”!

Next Level – Generating Employee Alignment

NEXT Level begins with strategic confidential research to determine the existing connection or lack of connection with Leadership’s vision.  This valuable information is confidentially used to coach the Executive Leadership Team in reconnecting and strengthening the organization. Dialexis provides a one-year path to re-connect employee commitments and re-set leadership’s operational strategy.  Prior experience has revealed an 87% disconnect between leaderships declared vision and the employee’s belief in that vision.  The opportunity is surprising since initially most leaders would suggest “we are working well with each other”.  As Edwards Deming suggested “we are often working hard at doing it wrong”.  Alignment and understanding of where the organization is going takes on a new level of responsibility for everyone in the organization.

Excellence In Leadership – A Transformational Experience

Leaders are those who envision, declare and create something unprecedented. An unprecedented result means a result no longer inspired by past interpretations, but rather inspired by forward possibilities.  In this program, participants discover fundamental distinctions regarding what it means to lead. They move from a desire to “manage” things into the domain of creating, regardless of the circumstances. Attendees will discover patterns that limit their professional performance through powerful exercises and explore the real choices they have by becoming aware of their prevailing interpretations. Participants will move from “it’s out of my control” to “I generate everything.” Previous attendees have learned to shift their results through new and powerful personal interpretations.  The Excellence in Leadership Phase I and Phase II curriculum is rigorous and requires a complete commitment to take on big challenges for 1 year!

Leadership Assessments

DiSC for Leaders allows all level of leaders to understand their personal style of leadership, their strengths and opportunities.  This personalized learning experience allows participants to read the style(s) of the people they leading and how to adapt their own style according to who they are coaching. The result is each participating leader is able to manage more effectively in the following areas:

  • Directing and Delegating

  • Employee Development
  • Working with other Leaders

Listening Mastery

Discover the Impact of the Five Listening Approaches and listening styles. It’s estimated that people screen out or change the intended purpose of what they hear in over 70% of all communications.

“While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to being a successful organization, certain attributes are constants: inspiring and visionary leadership, sustainable talent development and a culture of accountability and alignment. I have worked with the Dialexis team at multiple organizations. They provide the tools that leaders need to develop and grow these skills. Most importantly, what differentiates Dialexis above others is their experience. Starting with Dave and Marhnelle, the team has a personal track record of successfully building and managing high-performance organizations. Their coaching isn’t theoretical. It comes from demonstrated success. This experience is irreplaceable and will benefit anyone who works with the Dialexis team.”
