The Drozdal Company » Services
As principal consultant, Dr. John Drozdal helps managers and teams learn how to get results by working through and with others. He accomplishes this goal through individual and group coaching as well as customized workshops on topics such as performance management, team building, power and influence, decision-making, leadership, and communication skills for difficult conversations. He also facilitates effective working relationships through the use of several proven organizational tools:
- The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) – so that managers, direct reports, team leaders, and teams can appreciate how differences in style can enhance working relationships;
- The FIRO-B™ – so that a team can see how critical issues around inclusion, control, and openness can impact the its ability to get results;
- The Mobius Model Instrument™ – so that groups can decide for themselves what’s working, what isn’t, what’s possible, and what to do about it; and
- 360 Feedback Instruments – so that managers at all levels can leverage their strengths to increase their effectiveness.
Here is just a sample of the kind of organization development issues The Drozdal Company regularly addresses:
- You are having a challenge getting the different generations to work effectively together – there seems to be tension between baby boomers and millennials.
- You have a cadre of high potential managers, senior managers, and directors that you need to prepare to lead your company into the future.
- Your company implemented a 360 feedback process across all levels of management – starting with the senior executives. You thought you could have internal staff help the managers interpret their feedback and build a development plan, but that approach created awkward situations. You now need an objective, skilled facilitator to work with the managers and their feedback.
- One of your newer managers is underperforming. This person was an outstanding individual contributor, but now does not understand what it means to be a manager. That person’s direct reports often complain of being “micro-managed”.
- You’re the general manager and have a senior manager that gets results – but leaves a trail of wreckage behind. Now, three of the managers’ direct reports – all high potential managers – have left the company because of this manager in the past ninety days.
- One of your product development teams is really stuck. They haven’t made a deadline yet, and now several team members are openly hostile to the project manager.
- The senior leadership team in your organization has meetings that some describe as a war for control.
- Your company has just made a major acquisition and now is having difficulty getting the employees from the two different companies to work together.
- You lead a mid-size international company and feel like you are losing your effectiveness. You’ve heard about executive coaches and think you might need one. There is really no one else in the company to whom you can turn to for help.
- Your company just completed an employee climate survey. The biggest learning is that many describe the business as a “silo” organization that does not do a good job of managing across boundaries.
- Your department has a lot of outstanding performers. However, their “style” differences have lead to conflict and sub-standard business results.
- You’ve just been named the project manager of a group of self-described mavericks. You have a complex project to complete and only ninety days to do it. You are having a tough time getting this group to work together.
