Leadership ESP

(Everybody on the Same Page with Excellence on the Same Page)

The T.A.L.K. Associates Unity of Effort framework supports consistency in exercising Leadership practices for a high performance, customer-focused workplace. Organizations often ask, "How do we get everybody on board?” Operating in a Unity of Effort framework increases employee retention, increases the capacity for effective multilevel communication and accelerates progress in customer satisfaction by getting everybody 'on board'. We call it ESP – Everybody on the Same Page with Excellence on the Same Page. Through experiential learning, small group interaction and real life real time applications, participants learn and use key practices and approaches to assure empowered leadership and to:

Unify everyone, including support staff around a shared vision

Unity of Effort Core Questions

On any given day, at any management level, circumstances occur outside of the ordinary or routine. The T.A.L.K. Associates Unity of Effort practices are designed for any level of your organization to keep a customer-focused Direction of Excellence under any circumstances, at the inclusion of everyone rather than at the expense of anyone. Using the Core Questions is an essential practice for everyday excellence and sustainability.

The Core Questions help everyone, especially leaders, to ensure that support for everyone always flows in the direction of the customer and always concentrates on supporting front line performance and delivery. Core Questions are used when there is a significant change in policy, practice, standard or procedure. Using the Core questions encompasses value, respect, efficiency, sustainability and cost effectiveness when adjusting to change or creating change.

Organizational Support ESP

(Everybody on the Same Page with Excellence on the Same Page)

Who supports the support professionals? In any number of organizations I have heard organizational, administrative and management support professionals refer to themselves as ‘taken for granted’ or the company’s orphans, outcasts, second thoughts and other similar characterizations.

“Internal Greatness Programs and Projects” customize skills, approaches and practices necessary for management support, organizational support and educational support professionals to know where and how to concentrate their priorities and efforts most effectively in the direction of customer satisfaction and success. Relationships, performance and morale work together at higher levels in ways that get Everybody on the Same Page with Excellence on the Same Page.

The Unity of Effort in a Positive Direction

This manual is a comprehensive, universal guide for using the Unity of Effort framework effectively. The appendix includes a full version of the book Your Positive Direction NOW by J. Bert Freeman.

Through the power of direction and real-time application, you learn to use and establish the framework that unifies your organization. The “Unity of Effort in a Positive Direction” framework (Unity of Effort framework) is designed to make it easier for the effectiveness, efficiency and execution of everyone’s efforts to function in the same direction – everyone’s ‘Excellence is on the Same Page’ (ESP) in the direction of the customer.
