Cognova™ Consulting Inc. is founded on the philosophy that the spirit of inquiry, and thus, learning is the core competency for all development. We will help you transform the way you think, feel, and act. We accomplish this through our own commitment to learning and through executive coaching, assessment, leadership development programs, and organizational consulting.
Coaching is learning through a relationship. As Albert Einstein was credited with saying, the same thinking that was used to create a problem cannot be used to solve it. That is the essence of our coaching.
Our coaches provide a window to look beyond barriers that managers and executives encounter. We provide a time-out; a way to generate solutions that look to the future. Leaders who are committed to personal transformation and the stewardship of their organizations understand that having the right answer is simply not enough. We challenge leaders to confront their mental models, routine ways of thinking, and seeing.
Leaders who can claim a successful coaching outcome are those who understand that it is not what they know that makes them successful but rather the pursuit of what they do not know. These leaders demonstrate a greater professional and personal effectiveness in all their business relationships and endeavors. Learn more >>
Unique to our leadership program is the way this workshop is designed and delivered. We encourage leaders to teach what they need to learn. Through this process leaders marshal the energy of participants to collaborate, innovate, and achieve results. Participants become self-aware, and aware of the impact they have on others. Additionally, they learn to alter their behavior according to their awareness and the situation.
This comprehensive development opportunity is designed for mid-level managers and senior leaders. The workshop is organized in five modules: Principle Based Leadership, Learning and Decision Making, Dynamic Organizations and Change Readiness, Driving Performance and Talent Building. The key elements of this program and this model are study, teach, practice, debrief.
Working in concert with Cognova consultants, top leaders take the leadership challenge by modeling commitment to their own development when they deliver the entire program to their teams and organizations. Learn more >>
Second only to learning, our consultant's experience literally over thousands of assessments. Acquisition and development of talent is the cornerstone for success in business. Our talent assessment process provides a special lens to look at stable personality characteristics, cognitive functioning, and a snapshot of how a leader is perceived in the workplace. We target specific improvement opportunities for development. Understanding a person's strengths and limitations prior to hiring or promoting provides vital information to determine what, if any, investment is best for your business.
People develop on the basis of their strengths. Likewise, the strength of your talent bench is the key determinant in business success. We have developed a proprietary graphic that presents a picture of an individual's test results allowing you to predict suitability and readiness for organizational responsibility. Not only that, these graphical representations of the assessment outcomes can show you the relative strengths and weaknesses of your entire department or organization. Learn more >>
