- The X Team
VelocX gives team leaders a new perspective and an opportunity to step away from the day-to-day worries to focus on long-term goals and impassioned visions. In addition, VelocX provides ongoing coaching and reflection, helping leaders find new and more effective ways to address issues and manage team members. Through our methodology and insight, we assist leaders in understanding their strengths, their value, and their style and approach in leading and inspiring performance.
VelocX helps companies prepare for coming changes, and then manage the complex operational, organizational and workforce transitions to the desired end state. Below are some of our Leadership and Organizational Development offerings:
360° Leadership and Organizational Assessment
Using a structured approach of assessment tools and one-on-one interviews we create a picture of the leadership and organizational capacity of the company to support growth and change. Our work includes providing an assessment of individual leaders and whether there are opportunities to leverage existing capacity/skills or gaps that need to be addressed; then offering a roadmap on how to act on the recommendations.
Organizational Design and Mapping
Working with your leadership team with the context of understanding your strategic plan and key initiatives we can help re-design the organizational structure to better achieve the objectives and goals. We will also build a map of the key competencies that are required for each identified role to ensure success.
Performance Management Strategy and Program Development
Working with the executive leaders and HR team we will develop a comprehensive performance management strategy and program using our framework to create alignment between the leaders, HR and the employees to support the company’s strategic plan and key goals. The program can include the organizational assessment, a review of the organizational structure, creating job profiles and competencies, 360° Performance management, training, coaching and career path or succession planning.
Leadership and Employee Development Workshops
We offer a range of workshops to help develop the capabilities and capacity of your leaders and employees. Samplings of our workshops are Understanding Teams; Managing Conflict: A Collaborative Approach; Interviewing Skills; Active Listening Techniques.
Team Stress/Energy Assessment and Active Adaptation Training
Increasing stress can drain your employees, impact their abilities and negatively affect creativity. Using a prescriptive approach we conduct an assessment to determine the level of stress in the leadership team and/or organization; then through training and facilitated discussion we help the team discover how they can apply the techniques of active adaptation to their environment and turn what have been obstacles into competitive advantages.
As baby-boomers start to retire from executive suites, managerial offices, and specialized or technical jobs, the question of who will take their places becomes ever more pressing. This loss of valuable institutional memory makes it critical for a company to have a strong succession program. VelocX will help the leadership team and HR organization build a sustainable process for succession planning that is integrated to the strategic planning process; then help create an approach for identifying and developing talent for the key roles.
Job Profiles and Competencies
Key to an organization’s ability to scale is identifying and cultivating competencies with company talent to drive success. Using the Lominger Competency System® we help create a process for identifying the necessary competencies for all key roles and the resulting development plans.
The VelocX Executive Development Process helps executives become better leaders through personal development and growth. Our approach begins with defining development objectives and critical success factors for the role with the executive. Using data collected from both assessments as well as one-on-one feedback we compile a report that enables executives to understand their strengths and development areas. We then work together, to create a development plan, identify resources, and provide ongoing consultation and coaching to ensure growth in identified areas.
