Programs

Modern organizations are fraught with challenges; Generational, cultural, geographical, technical, market complexities and more. Operating in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world requires getting all levels of your organization aligned, moving in the same direction, executing on the same strategy, all while developing greater levels of agility. When life is as stressful as it is today, it’s hard to stay focused and remain present enough to adapt to change. It’s not easy to maintain and build the necessary networks of trusted relationships.

Having the right people in the right jobs is necessary, but not enough. Many leaders have a sense of the underlying problems that manifest in a variety of dysfunctional behaviors. How do you bring your organization to a more conscious understanding of the root problems? How do you ensure that communication and behaviors are congruent with your organizational values and unify everyone to achieve your strategic goals?

VN&Co consultants utilize dynamic action methods drawn from our experience in theatre and the performing arts.

Throughout our twenty years of working with clients, we’ve discovered, that above all else the metaphor of “story” brings to life both the conscious and unconscious source of attitudes, behavior, identity, and more. This is why we focus so much of our programs, coaching and consulting on exploring the inner story that we each possess. This process illuminates the disconnect between what we believe and what we desire to achieve. The end result is an organization effectively working together toward a clear strategy as one unified whole.

VN&Co works with you to advance the three critical drivers of success:

  1. Live Your Values
  2. Develop Your Leaders
  3. Nurture Your Culture

Our programs are specifically designed to:

  • Cultivate the mindset and skills needed to stay focused and remain present enough to adapt to change
  • Inspire people to bring their full selves to their roles so they can operate at peak efficiency
  • Train leaders at all levels to demonstrate executive presence and communicate with clarity, power and passion
  • Help teams, especially cross functional teams, work together more effectively and build trust-based relationships
  • Engage your people to operate within a unified story
