Beyond Team Building
Most team building that we’ve experienced is fun. Building marshmallow and spaghetti towers, playing with lego, even a day out in nature on a challenge course. The problem with these experiences isn’t that they’re not fun, it’s that they’re rarely impactful in the long term.
Make sure your next team development opportunity doesn’t go to waste.
All of us face some level of conflict in our lives, everything from having different opinions about a strategy in our organization to outright confrontation with peers and loved ones. At Attainability, conflict is the beginning of consciousness. It’s the spark for change. It’s an opportunity to grow and flourish. We believe that healthy conflict is necessary for your team to be at its best.
Strategic by Design
Vision without action is hallucination. All to often we put a ton of energy, time and money into our strategic plans…only to look back a few months or years later and wonder why so many priorities were left undone.
We help organizations build not only highly functioning and compelling strategies, but teach teams how to innovate by design and respond to opportunities that exist beyond the goals of the company.
The Ethics of Power
Helping professionals have a tremendous amount of power in the lives of their students, clients and colleagues. As Uncle Ben so aptly put it to Spiderman; With great power comes great responsibility. We are certified Right Use of Power trainers, a dynamic, inspiring and relational approach to professional and personal ethics and empowerment. A must-have training for anyone who works with people in a helping role.
What's your success rate?
Organizations are moving beyond anecdotes of success, towards providing evidence based programs. How do you collect the data you need, and more importantly, how do you use that data in the quest for continuous improvement?
We’ll help you move beyond data collection, integrating your outcomes into daily practice.
If there’s one constant force affecting all of our organizations, it’s the constant and accelerating pace of change. From evolving technology to shifting funders and political mandates, it can feel like we’re constantly being pushed to change. Of course, people don’t resist change, they resist being changed. We love helping organizations approach change (big and small) in an intentional, human-centered fashion. Because it works.
Attainability is about potential.
We’re about empowering teams of people in the helping profession to perform at levels previously thought unimaginable.
Collaboration, communication and incredible impact as normal consequences of your work, not accidental outcomes once and awhile.
You want to close the gap between where you are and where you could be. We want to help.
Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what others are saying.
