Philosophy
& Guiding Principles

In today’s highly complex and volatile world, a new way of leading is required. For years, leaders have been told that their role was to set clear strategy, lead from the top, and execute flawlessly with command and control. Today, leaders need to make quick decisions and agile shifts to stay competitive. Modern leaders need to be self-possessed, see themselves and the world differently, and increase their capacity to hold and address more complex, systemic, and interdependent dynamics. To us, leadership development is a craft, not just a process or program.

Use Cases

We don’t believe that development offerings should be off the shelf. While our leadership development work is highly customized, often clients come to us for support in these domains:

step-1

Teams

We work with C-teams, new teams, teams facing new challenges, and often cross-functional teams to help them develop together. Often, this is tied directly to consulting and coaching work so that performance breakthroughs are possible in months rather than years.

step-2

High-Potential Leaders

We build programs tailored toward senior leaders getting ready for their next stage of growth. These are the Directors and VPs who are clearly identified as future leaders of the organization. This is often focused on vertical development that helps them evolve their impact in new and dramatic ways.

step-3

Emerging Leaders

We support new leaders who are beginning to discover who they are as leaders. We equip them with tools and practices to accelerate their growth. Often this work is conducted as action-learning and involves programs which support development through direct work collaborating on critical strategic priorities.

Distinctions: How We’re Different

Innovative

We regularly hear “We’ve done a lot of work like this but nothing took us as far, as fast, and as deep as our work with Trium.” We help leaders discover their own capabilities and build on those. We don’t think development should be built around deficits but more around understanding and awakening each leader’s superpowers.

Integrated

We see development as a critical component of improving your strategy execution capabilities. Together, we must answer the question: “how will investing in our leaders improve the health of our business?” Very often, our development work is tightly linked to major change efforts or significant organizational evolutions, whether they be culturally or strategically focused.

Integral

Our leadership programs address not only a leader’s knowledge, skills, and competencies, they also advance a leader’s ability to make unconscious mindsets conscious in service of unlocking new potential. We focus on helping leaders move through their own development journey so that they become more aware, reflective, and mature, and therefore better able to manage themselves and the teams they lead.

“I think what‘s magical about it is, we just had this Trium offsite and the number one comment from people leaving was, 'I felt like I got something I can have for the rest of my life.' Then number two comment was, 'I can see how I can take those skills and now apply them to what I‘m trying to do in work.'” Watch Video
