Bio Picture: Dave Heisey
Organizational performance has changed significantly over the past 20 years, and it isn’t getting easier, particularly for Owners, CEO's and Presidents (OCP's), who are the ultimate decision-makers for their organizations:
✔ Technology has impacted communications tremendously: phone, email, text, face-to-face, and social require unique skills.
✔ There are as many as five generations in the workplace at the same time, with different approaches to work.
✔ Customer service expectations have increased requiring higher quality and consistency delivered quickly.
✔ Employees have higher expectations of their employers, if you don’t engage them quickly and often they’ll leave.
✔ Your performance is impacted not only by the primary product or service but by the myriad of suppliers you utilize.
✔ Technical competence is necessary across many disciplines beyond just your core competencies.
This makes the job of OCP's far more challenging. The number of decisions to be made, their complexity, and the pace necessary to remain competitive are putting real strains on the leaders at the top of every organization. How would your life change if your leadership team and all of your employees were helping to guide your organization through the challenges identified above? How nice would it be if they understood the key business drivers for your company, were able to keep pace with the technical aspects of their role, and utilized their unique perspective to not only solve problems but create opportunities that would leapfrog the competition?
The school of hard knocks will always be the default, and many of us have developed our skills through learning by doing. But this is a slow, erratic and potentially faulty process. Your functional leaders need to be really good at their technical roles but also need to be strong in leading teams, in encouraging collaboration, in developing team members, and in having a solid understanding of your operations.
I am passionate about seeing Michigan organizations improve their leadership skills. It will not only improve our organization and economic performance, but will extend throughout our communities, our schools, and our local governments. If you connect with me on LinkedIn, I provide a daily perspective on leadership and organizational challenges that you might find useful. I will NOT contact you with a solicitation as soon as you connect. My interest is in finding OCP's that have a genuine desire to improve their performance and are interested in discussing the possibilities further.

Understanding the Power of Collective Intelligence

In today's quickly evolving business environment, organizations must be constantly ready to adapt and pivot. To make strategic decisions, leaders need access to large amounts of information and expertise. As jobs and workplaces become increasingly complex and require more specialized knowledge, the challenge lies in integrating that knowledge across an organization to create successful outcomes; the talent and expertise of one individual isn't enough. Interestingly, there is compelling evidence that groups of people are collectively smarter than individual experts when it comes to problem-solving, decision-making, innovating, and predicting consequences.

""After just a couple of months I had gotten so much benefit out of my time with Dave that I have put 8 of our leaders into the program to date and as we bring on new team members as part of their onboarding process they will be taking this training. The training teaches a wide range of critical tools needed to grow our business and holds us accountable to put what we learn into action. The awesome "side effect" is how our leaders are working together more than ever and as a team focusing on growing the business as a whole. I believe the training that Dave provides is so powerful because Dave has the real-world experience to back what he is teaching to help us better apply what we learn.""

""Because of Dave, I have a whole toolkit of management techniques that have helped me be a more effective leader within my organization. I participated in Crestcom’s 12-month Bullet Proof Manager program, which Dave facilitated. Not only was he effective at leading the training modules, but he would regularly share insights from his previous management roles in the private sector. I particularly appreciated his approach in getting to know the participants and their roles so he could give better guide the sessions and 1:1 debriefs. I highly recommend Dave for your next leadership training!""
