Our 30 years of research have identified that OUR LEAST developed skill as human beings is our ability to “confront” each other face to face – to say what is in our hearts and on our minds, and at the same time build and strengthen our trust and relationships with others. Conversations connect one person to another, connect people on teams, and literally connect the whole organization with its customer. If the quality of conversations is minimal, the chances for business success are minimal.
For three decades we’ve worked with clients to understand what factors create success or failure in their companies. We challenge our clients to think in new ways and to become open to the newest thinking and research from fields such as psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience.
Our Co-creating Conversations® workshops, summits, executive and team coaching and interventions integrate the newest and most powerful insights, specifically from Neuroscience, the fastest growing field of research in the world today. These new insights are unlocking the code on success and failure in relationships, teams and the organization.
This powerful, neuroscientific research explains the underlying causes behind:
Benchmark offers custom designed and facilitated programs, from short half-day sessions up to full multi-month Interventions which enable leaders and their teams to work issues and challenges in a safe and supportive process that leads to greater insights, new partnering skills, higher levels of candor and caring.
Everyone learns to become more self-aware, to build trust, and to increase their ability to deal artfully and effectively with difficult conversations while at the same time strengthening relationships. This work rebalances the organization so that a ‘new normal’ emerges. Both candor and caring practices come together to create a symphony for success. To ensure leaders understand how to learn and practice these new skills and mindsets, we offer customized short and long programs, sessions, summits and interventions.
“The brain immediately confronts us with its great complexity. The human brain weighs only three to four pounds but contains about 100 billion neurons. Although that extraordinary number is of the same order of magnitude as the number of stars in the Milky Way, it cannot account for the complexity of the brain.”
