What can "wholehearted agreement" do for you and your organization?

  • Better outcomes
  • True teamwork
  • Satisfied customers
  • More efficient use of resources

Have you ever wondered why there are so many "fires" to put out?

When a problem is addressed with a compromise solution — a solution that does not have the wholehearted agreement of everyone involved — it may appear that the problem has been fully addressed, but often it has not been solved completely.

The areas where the solution isn't truly a fit for the people involved often require more attention, and have the potential of producing new problems of their own.

With the perspective that we've developed, you wind up with solutions that people are truly in agreement with. So you're free to keep your focus on your goals.

This new perspective puts you and your organization much more in control. Every solution that people truly agree with increases stability and predictability.

For instance, you won't have disconnects — the unintended consequences solutions can have.

Solutions that people truly agree with:

  • Put people on the same page
  • Increase the flow of accurate information
  • Maximize performance
  • Eliminate conflicts

Because solutions are truly a fit for the people involved, it's much easier to create synergistic relationships among teams, between different levels of the organization, and across functions.

Solutions that people truly agree with:

  • Align them with the goal
  • Meet their needs and expectations
  • Increase cooperation
  • Are inherently motivating

This new perspective opens the door to solutions that are much more cost-effective than compromise solutions.

For example, solutions that people truly agree with solve problems at their source — eliminating the cascade of problems that can occur when people aren't in wholehearted agreement with a solution.

Also, solutions that are truly a fit for the people involved are inherently efficient. What operation, objective or interaction wouldn't benefit — and benefit significantly — from a solution that is truly a fit for the people involved?
