How to Get the Best from Your People

We often say “our most important asset is our people.” Sometimes we get the best from our people, but too often we don’t. Why is this, why is it so difficult, and how can we do better? The results of our organization depend on it.

The success of our business or startup depends on our teams, and our team’s performance depends on us. IGL brings practices for successful team performance refined for over three decades – practices for use on the job, not just concepts.


How does IGL empower you? Generative Leadership

IGL has developed a powerful approach called Generative Leadership that has produced extraordinary results in teams and organizations including engineering services, physician based organizations, software companies, consulting, manufacturing, marketing information services, and others.

Generative Leadership fully integrates action and people, performance and coordination, teamwork and communication, results and interpersonal skills. We invite you to explore how Generative Leadership can serve you and your organization


Teamwork Drives Results and Value Creation – how do you elevate your Organization’s Teamwork?

Extraordinary results require extraordinary coordination and teamwork, and this is determined by high value interpersonal skills in team interactions. Generative Leadership reveals how people’s conversations, commitment, and care drive the coordination of action, and how you can lead the shift through these skills.

We have learned that keys you must focus on as a business owner or entrepreneur are building and leading your team, managing your own capacity and energy, growing your people, setting up a healthy value-creating culture, making strategy a key regular conversation and not being consumed by operations, and including regular practices for reading the world and value creation. These areas of learning show up in three essential dimensions – “mewe-world.” As leaders we must continue to learn in these areas of yourself, your interactions with others, and how this translates to results in the world.


Generative Leadership Results

The generative leadership approach is rich, hands-on action, practice, and results. You’ll learn to elevate and sustain results, much like other business owner students: a manufacturing company that grew 20-30% through the recession, an engineering services company that is growing at 25% a year due to the leadership team, and a physician care company that went from flat performance to growth in a chaotic market.


Our Offer to You

Generative Leadership requires a serious commitment to learning and to apply what you learn to your practices of leadership, teamwork, and coordination. IGL programs are not academic or just conceptual. Participants in our leadership programs receive personal coaching on how to apply new frameworks and skills on the job to produce new results.
