Inspiration without Hesitation – that’s our motto at the Incedo Group.
Our name comes from the Latin word that means “to move, to awake, to go forward, to triumph over, to change.” It means more than just plodding along, but implies embracing a bold and inspired course of action that may depart from the past.
“What’s in a name?” you may ask. At Incedo Group, we offer business coaching, but our approach differs from what you might think. WE BELIEVE THAT MOST BUSINESS PROBLEMS ARE ROOTED IN POOR COMMUNICATION
Many prospective clients come to us in search of how to improve ROI, how to hire better, how to develop leadership within their organization, how to improve sales, how to implement change or develop the business, and much more. What they expect are steps they should take to insure better profitability, less turnover, increased sales, or develop leaders that are more effective. At Incedo, we understand these goals, but delivering off-the-shelf 12-step programs is not what we’re about.
Our core belief is that most business problems are rooted in poor communication. Effective communication and success go hand-in-hand. Incedo Group will work with you to heal the core of the organizational problem with a three-pronged focus:
- COMMUNICATION is an effective organizational strategy that prevents a small challenge from crippling the performance of your business. Incedo Group will help you to build a stronger, more efficient organization.
- PRODUCTIVITY is never accidental – it is the predictable sum of judicious planning, committed effort and focused leadership. Incedo Group will help you learn how to select, develop and retain your top performers, set ambitious goals and trust your motivated workforce to meet or exceed them and meet the other productivity challenges you face.
- GROWTH of your business isn’t just an important economic goal; it’s a necessity for survival. Whether you’re trying to expand into new global markets, build powerful internal communication strategies or maximize top talent, Incedo will help you learn to identify and seize opportunities with long-range, strategic planning.
You may think that focusing on communication is to take the long way around your business problems, but our 30 years in the business world has shown us that when communication is poor, you are prone to make decisions and develop policies that are misguided ( or downright wrong.)
WHEN COMMUNICATION IS POOR, YOU ARE PRONE TO MAKE DECISIONS AND DEVELOP POLICIES THAT ARE MISGUIDED (OR DOWNRIGHT WRONG)
When communication is lacking, it’s like there is an elephant in the room. You may want business as usual, or you may have to fight a fire. With the elephant relaxing in your offices, you will have to work around him to get anything done. In times of crisis, having to bring the hose around a large obstacle can prevent the quick, decisive action you need.
What comes to mind here is a cartoon we once saw. A beauty shop on one side of the street proclaimed: “We offer $6 haircuts!” The competitor on the other side of the street counters with: “We fix $6 haircuts.”
At Incedo, we don’t offer $6 haircuts or propose a one-size-fits all “solution” that avoids underlying problems. We do, however, fix a few $6 haircuts as we strive to help you address your core problems – which often means chasing away elephants.
At Incedo, we believe coaching is an art form, to be enjoyed and inspired by –both the client and the coach. We want to personally help you get from where you are to where you want to go as a leader in your organization and work with your company to help achieve its business goals, but we do it in a way that is both effective and edgy. We’ve developed a series of tools to allow you to work at your own pace while working with us in areas such as communication, planning, leadership development, and more that will help you approach and solve current and future business problems.
We invite you to join us, enjoy the journey, and BE INSPIRED WITHOUT HESITATION though the process.
