    My personal WHY stems down to helping people. In helping people succeed, it results in collective success. Not only does helping people succeed allows people reach a greater potential than they could have done by themselves, but it increases my own sense of purpose and satisfaction, provides fulfillment, and sends positive energy throughout everything that I do. Consider the law of attraction. Since like attracts like, positive energy will generate more good will, more long-lasting impact, and reflect the world that I want to help build.

    From a business perspective, my WHY builds off that theme. Performance issues often plague the workplace. It’s very common actually! The problem could be preventing a business from reaching a goal, fulfilling a business objective, or attaining a mandate? Yet it’s often difficult to see the forest through the trees. If organizations are experiencing pain, outside help may make all the difference.

    A common perception is that problems are likely behaviour based or believing that the issue is the fault of workers. In fact, performance is usually the result of various factors within the work environment! How does one find out where the source of an issue is?

    Our purpose is to guide clients in identifying barriers to achieving organizational goals, developing solutions to learning and performance issues and help organizations succeed. We want to help businesses succeed in achieving their goals, improve their performance and be the best that they could possibly be. How? Specially trained practitioners are able to systematically uncover the root cause of a performance issue, and provide recommendations on how to address the problem.

    We focus on results, with results defined as achievements that the client values. Using evidence-based practices to analyze performance issues systemically and systematically, our goal is to help you improve activities and results to achieve the desired outcomes.

    Hello Nicole,

    After reading your WHY, I’m curious to learn more about your background that you are pivoting into this work. What about your own journey led you to develop an expertise in this area? I can make guesses here, but I think there’s a deep connection which lives in your background and experiences which has motivated you to build a business around this. I think that’s an important part of your story.

    Looking forward to learning more!

    Nicole,

    I appreciate your point about clients not correctly analysing the root cause of the problems. The human race has such difficulty managing change. What are your thoughts on helping your client build their capacity to identify challenges, solutions and implementations?

    Erin,

    In my case, it’s not really a pivot but a natural progression within my occupation as a Training Development officer in the military. For me, it’s figuring out what that looks like outside the constraints of the military, and how to carve out a space in the civilian world. Delving deep into the issues and determining the root cause of a problem is my true passion, as well as figuring out how to fix them. So often bandaid solutions are offered that don’t address the true source of the problem, such as providing more training that, at surface level, makes it LOOK like the problem has been solved.

    Judy,

    Capacity building is a tough one as people are always looking for the quick wins. Yet it is essential to achieving high performance! However, the basic skills for building capacity are achievable if a systemic and systematic process is followed. As I work with the client to complete needs assessments or improvements to performance, I would take them through the steps, and even help them to build the expertise within their own organization.

    Nicole,

    I smile as you I read your post, as your process in itself is building capacity for problem identification.
