Philosophy
& Guiding Principles

No organization grows faster than its leaders. In today’s rapidly changing business environment, leadership needs to evolve more quickly than ever to identify threats and take advantage of opportunities.  For years, leaders have been trained in top-down, command-and-control styles which limit the agility of an organization and the speed of innovation. To make decisions more quickly, improve collaboration, and fuel cultures built on shared meaning, leaders must learn to recognize the beliefs that hold them back and make a practice of moving beyond them. These are skills that can’t simply be taught. To us, leadership development is a journey that unlocks the potential of leaders in the context of doing real work and pursuing new levels of performance.  

Use Cases

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 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. Our high-potential programs focus on accelerating the development of these successors to improve their readiness for their next leadership roles.

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
