Our Triple Focus

Fulcrum Associates - Leadership Training and Development, Team BuildingLast November in this space I introduced how we have re-organized and augmented our suite of offerings to meet the needs of our clients at the levels of the manager, the team, and the organization as a whole.

Under the overall tag line of “Micro Leadership Macro Results,” we provide a particular blend of services that no one else offers:

1. Micro Leadership (working effectively with individual employees and teams).

2. Meetings & Conferences We Speak to Managers

3. Senior Leader Development (to handle the complexity of today’s environment)

Now I am pleased to announce our new website designed to present this trio of high performance solutions. Please take a look at it: www.888fulcrum.com. I welcome any comments you have.

We have designed our site first to reflect the people-related challenges you face and the potential you want realized where you work. Then, as you dig deeper and scroll down, you come across the range of programs, services and approaches from which we customize solutions to meet your needs and priorities.

The environment in 2013 will continue to be challenging. I doubt your current people leadership and performance issues will simply fade away in what will be, at best, a gradually growing economy.

So, call me so we can have an exploratory conversation about moving your managers to a higher level of effectiveness this very year.
