Imagine the difference in your worklife if your “win” rate increased by 50%. Or even more. Leaps like that are common for Significa clients, no matter how skilled they already are.
As leaders, our lives are already busy enough. We need to make wise investments of our time. New approaches should be easy to learn and easy to retain as part of our natural repertoire. And they also need to be highly effective in the real world of a complex workplace.
Strong leaders are authentic and real. Growing our influencing and persuasion skills should mean tapping into our own natural strengths vs following what everyone else does. The techniques we learn should be a good fit for who we are, not some guru’s methodology.
If your goal is to make a meaningful difference as a leader, then we want to give you the tools to do that successfully and effortlessly. Significa is passionate about enabling strong leaders to have their voice heard, valued, and acted upon.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that our Managing Director Kathy Dockry has spent a lifetime studying what works and what doesn’t work when navigating through complex environments.
Kathy keeps current on a broad array of thinking and best practices in leadership, communications, neuroscience, developmental learning, and other fields….so that you don’t have to do that. She’s a firm believer that one size doesn’t fit all, especially at the top. It’s Significa’s job to do the heavy lifting….to identify and distill for you the resources that are best suited to who you are and the context in which you’re working. And it’s also our job to make the experience of growing your influencing skills easy and straightforward.
Significa has the privilege of partnering with some of the premier coaching and consulting organizations focused on leadership at the top of large organizations.
Significa also has close ties to a variety of well-known executive search firms. Our search colleagues often recommend us to leaders during the succession planning process or as a new leader assumes a larger role. They know these are situations where presence and influencing skills can make an enormous difference.
Kathy blends her deep understanding of the business world, its complex challenges, and its politics with humor, warmth and an energetic results-oriented style. As clients review their successes at the end of engagements, they often confirm the truth of what she said at the beginning: “Let’s have some fun!” Even more importantly, they cite the rewards of knowing that Significa always has their backs…that it’s as committed to their leadership success as they are.
