The Innovation -Consolidation Tightrope:

Keep your balance

To sustain growth over time, it’s necessary to balance the pursuit of new ideas with the development of those systems and processes that keep a company grounded.

Both elements are essential for success, but roles that focus on innovation tend to attract different personalities and contrasting skillsets to those that involve consolidation. This can generate friction and frustration. How do you integrate these different functions to create a team that pulls together to perform at a high level?

Our innovation-consolidation workshop offers communication insights, strategies and practical tools that will help you build a cohesive team that has depth as well as drive – positioning you for business success.
