Executive Leadership Coaching RESILIENCE

It seems unnecessary to explain how difficult and unrelenting the demands on organizational citizens have become. This program is about using a research-based five stage process called the MBOI, to help organizations and the people who work in them, learn the skillset of resilience. We believe that building in resilience is the most effective hedge we have against lost productivity, a disengaged workforce, and even individual burnout. We have developed an organizational intervention program based on Dr. Susan Auger’s MBOI grounded theory (or research?). The MBOI resilience model is flexible and applicable in a wide variety of circumstances. As is the case with all of our other programs, we customize the MBOI to meet our client’s unique needs. We do this by conducting a series of comprehensive interviews with key organizational stakeholders. The MBOI model is an elegant and practical helping process that can be taught, learned and embedded into any organization or team process. It is geared to creating learning organizations. We assist those who participate in this program to build their capacity to access their strengths, in a way that allows them to refocus on, and find joy in their work once again.

To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this training. I knew Susan Auger and Chuck Berke from previous leadership development training they had provided. This was completely different but every bit as valuable. Our company had been and was continuing to experience very turbulent times. The MBOI model was enormously helpful in getting people through the tough patches and back in the game.

Organizational environments are not for the faint of heart these days. Many of us experience long intense battles with stress and that takes its toll. Susan’s MBOI model is incredibly useful in navigating difficult waters. Susan and Chuck’s guidance really made a difference and helped us recognize how depleted we had become and exactly what to do about it. I would recommend this training highly!
