Lions and Tigers and Bears…DJA Is More Than What You May Already Know

Last week one of our team members was in conversation with a client and the client wished out loud, “We have a sudden influx of requests by our senior managers for executive coaching. We didn’t see this coming and now we are scrambling to find a solution.” We immediately responded, “We offer that and would be honored to help out.” They were surprised and pleased. And we were surprised, too. Why didn’t they know that we offer executive coaching? Micro-courses? Conferences? I guess we’ve been so busy doing the work that we haven’t been telling our story enough. Well, we’d like to tell you now.

Organizations and their leaders are being held accountable for new standards of equity, inclusion, and excellence. To this end, the most impactful changes are not reactionary or episodic: they are intentional, ongoing, and enterprise-wide; strengthening strategy, systems, and culture within an organization. The DJA suite of services capitalizes on just that.
