Creating next level results in work and in life …

Lifestyle

(noun)
  1. The way in which a person or group lives

Sandbox

(noun)
  1. a box or receptacle for holding sand, especially one large enough for child’s play.
  2. Computers: an environment in which software developers or editors can create and test new content, separate from other content in the project.
  3. On-line Gaming: a sandbox game lets the player visit and explore every aspect of the environment, in the moment, during the game.  Most uniquely, the player in a sandbox game actually helps build and manage the world around them.
  4. Our take:
    1. A unique, facilitated, brainstorming experience, to explore the necessary aspects of producing next level results.
    2. An  approach to build and manage a world, culture, or preferred lifestyle, as next level results are pursued.

Leading a Sandbox

In The Boardroom • Conference Room . Break Room • Dining Room • Kitchen 

We are refining how we come to the table today …

How we lead at the table today has changed.  How we negotiate, align, or produce results requires more nimbleness and simultaneously more rigor than ever before.

In addition, it now requires a capacity to influence and lead collaboration.

Whether it is a post merger global gathering with international cultures to navigate or a fund raiser for your middle child’s latest endeavor

Achieving a goal with a group of not so like minded people is simply more challenging today.

The good news
  1. There is a skill to producing an intended result with a group
  2. It can be learned
  3. You are in the right place to master it here

Your lifestyle depends on it …

At work and in life:  How you live your life, as you are building your life, impacts the results you are experiencing and the fun you are having along the way.

In the sandbox you can learn the secrets, and master the skill, of building a path for success, at work and in life, by leveraging the power of ‘we’,

Executing from a Sandbox

Execution from ‘we’ requires guidance from a leader with hard won in the world wisdom as well as insight from emerging, cutting edge approaches.

Combining the two creates a success path that drives results.

The good news: There is a formula: Build a plan that leverages past experience, emerging trends and thorough analysis.  Then refine the plan as execution creates feedback.  Review results and mine for learnings and best practices, repeat.

Leveraging this formula can help a nimble group of allies take on any emerging opportunity.

The bad news: If people can’t deliver or respond to execution feedback, and forward motion is stalled to smooth out the turbulence, the project looses momentum and opportunities are missed.

The solution:

Learning to effectively lead collaboration  

This one skill set can keep turbulence to a minimum and direct focus instead to reaching for and achieving next level results, again and again.
