WE HELP LEADERS AND ORGANIZATIONS
GET SMARTER AND BETTER AT TAKING RISKS IN THREE WAYS:
Smart risk-taking doesn’t happen on its own. Senior leaders set a tone for it. They have to get issues out on the table, make tough decisions, get on the same page, set a compelling vision, and communicate it. Then they have to define expected behaviors, role model them, and hold others accountable for doing the same. We help senior leaders do all of the above.
In order for smart risk taking to stick, it has to be embedded in the culture. Leaders have to weave the expectation of smart risk taking into everyday interactions, regular meetings, performance reviews, development initiatives, and recognition programs. And they have to make it OK to fail as long as it’s done thoughtfully and intelligently. We help leaders identify and execute the most productive strategies for doing this in their organization.
Mission-critical projects are the building blocks of smart-risk-taking organizations. When planned and executed effectively they energize and build momentum for other projects. We help teams and executives in challenging, risky, yet strategically important situations. Using our smart-risk framework we work with our clients to decrease risk factors and increase experimentation, learning, and communication. The end result is stronger leaders, stronger teams, and more successful projects.
Who we work with
Why Sundheim Group?
We know what works.
We’ve been successful entrepreneurs and corporate leaders. We’ve seen a lot of what doesn’t work—formulaic planning and change exercises that look good on paper, but fall flat in action. From those experiences we’ve developed a clear perspective on what works—thoughtful, context-specific, yet straightforward ideas and plans of attack. We get a stripped down, clear view of a company’s current situation. Then we build a custom solution tailored to specific needs. There are no tricks. There are no quick fixes. Just a deep understanding of business and what people need to do to run them well.
