Keeping an Organization
Balanced & Growing
Effective Learning for Growth works with clients by first understanding their needs. What needs to change? What opportunities exist to make a real difference?
Together we identify:
- How will we know everything is working as planned?
- What results will indicate that this is clearly successful enough to be worthwhile?
- What's the baseline of those results now?
- How much change means success?
Together we identify who will go first through the process, and who else needs to go through it to get everyone aligned and engaged with the common goal of the changed results.
We use processes tested and proven by hundreds of other consultancies within the Resource Associates Corporation network. Applying the right processes and customizing as needed, Effective Learning for Growth works closely and frequently with Client leaders and staff to bring the change that brings measurable results.

Starting with Strategy or Process!
Effective Learning for Growth works at all points along Galbraith’s “Star model.”
Everything starts with a good strategy. Without a viable, meaningful plan, organizations wander, reactivity sets in, morale sinks. The Strategy must be well understood by all who make decisions - not just the founders, not just the executives, but everybody! . We help organizations develop, revise, and communicate strategy - so everyone's pulling in the same direction.
Process is also a great place to start. Most growing businesses make up solutions to the problems that pop up. It works? It sticks! It becomes "the way we do this." Very normal! What's the problem? It's usually only in the heads of the entrepreneurial founders. It's rarely written down - or thought though - to see if it's still the best way as the organization grows. So process becomes a problem - creating crises, chaos, confusion - and lost money, customers, and valued staff! Effective Learning for Growth offers Rapid Process (TM) - a unique approach to developing &redefining process. It's different as night and day from large consulting firms that would spend years and millions on this important task - our approach works well, and it is fast, cheap, and easy!
Structure has to adapt to the strategy and enable it. Rewards and Recognition must focus on those behaviors that the strategy requires. Finally, the People are vitally important. The right talent must be aware, engaged, and developed for the strategy to be achieved.
Effective Learning for Growth has proven, tested processes and tools to address these areas. Learn how we can grow your organization from where it is, to where your dreams would take it.
