“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it”
Almost two decades ago, we started the business that has evolved into The Success Catalyst.
Our evolution has been the result of learning opportunities, sometimes referred to as failures. In the beginning, we built curriculum-driven training to help our clients achieve top line profitability. When we honestly assessed the results, the outcomes achieved fell short of our aspirations.
Knowledge will take you only so far.
Individuals have limitations. It is unfortunate that our society’s post graduate educational system and professional training strategies tends to focus on individual knowledge and skills. We have learned that real improvements in performance do not start with knowledge. Knowing does not impact acting.
People act in accordance with their beliefs. When the goal is changing the way one decides and acts, litigating the system of beliefs that has dictated previous actions is required. We recognize that productive conflict is a good thing, that we all must be able and willing to talk about not only the good, but the bad as well.
No environment is more impactive to litigating beliefs than a team. Being part of a trusted group of peers sharing the same goals, a team, is a powerful way to leverage experiences and insights. This revelation caused The Success Catalyst to stop teaching and start helping individuals transform.
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team” … Phil Jackson
The most important catalyst to transform an individual is the influence of a trusted team. Teams challenge the attitudes and beliefs of an individual from multiple perspectives and different experiences. Teams are powerful tools that elevate the consciousness, commitment and enthusiasm of individual members to succeed
Whether a group of internal employees, or an organization peer executive from different companies, teams corral diversity and motivate action. Through team membership, individuals can more effectively solve problems, overcome greater challenges and engage in more successful risk-taking than they can achieve acting alone.
The Success Catalyst ignites the power of teams to Play to Win.
