The As One edge
Our world is as much about cooperation as it is about conflict; as much about collaboration as competition. Advances in technology and globalization of markets are fast shifting the global balance of power, resulting in seismic economic and social changes. There are more ways than ever for society at large and communities to be disrupted. In this new and evolving reality, achieving large scale collaborative behavior is more challenging than ever.
As One is the only service offering in the marketplace that seeks to understand why organizations are not working well together and delivers actionable insights and interventions designed to achieve As One behavior and accelerate organizational performance.
A first in the consulting industry, As One provides leaders with advanced information graphics in an interactive, Web-based interface to analyze their organizations’ leadership data.
As One differs from traditional engagement, change readiness, and culture surveys, which operate at the project level and capture employees’ views and interpretations of past experiences. In contrast to these other assessment methods, As One captures people’s beliefs, commitment, and engagement to the future direction of their organization and the specific, defined tasks required to achieve organizational goals and objectives.
The As One diagnostic is invaluable to senior management for its ability to break down and analyze the complexity of workplace interrelationships. By identifying the areas in their organizations exhibiting the weakest levels of commitment and participation, leaders can better allocate resources and take preemptive action to minimize risk.
As One helps enable new leaders and leaders charged with launching new strategies to communicate and connect with their people in a way that inspires commitment to achieving a shared purpose. If you are someone charged with executing a plan, achieving a defined goal, or delivering results, As One can provide you with the critical knowledge and understanding of how your people think about working together and help enable you to establish the conditions within your organization necessary for As One behavior to take root and succeed.
As One can also help leaders who have lost the hearts and minds of their people. The difficult economic environment of the last two years has caused leaders to shift their strategic direction or restructure their organizations. Many have had to trim their workforces and make substantial cuts to compensation. Still others have merged with former competitors or have been acquired, resulting in a forced change in identity. Battered and bruised by the downturn, the survivors’ psyche is “every man for himself.” In the face of crisis, As One provides leaders with the understanding, data, and tools necessary to regain trust, reinspire purpose, and reactivate engagement.
