What can SAGE COLLABORATIVE do for your business?

Executive Individual and Team Coaching/Leadership Development
Leadership is a privilege and a responsibility. For those of us who have lived our professional lives as leaders, we know, that when things are going well its not too tough. When things are tough, it’s not so easy and very lonely.

Exceptional leaders rise above the noise to make or break a company.
Cohesive teams exceed the expectations of the company and create and nurture culture. SAGE executives will engage you to define your professional and personal priorities in order to direct your time and energy to what matters most to you. As important, we will help you see and internalize results.

SAGE consultants and executive coaches have each ‘been there’, and understand the complexity and importance of clear leadership. We will move you through transitions associated with promotions, organizational changes and moving on to new organizations and careers.

Promising ‘up-and comers’ gain perspective and can hone skills by working with an executive coach, who has real-world experience as an executive.

Efficient at work, but too busy to organize my LIFE (!?*) an executive coach will lend perspective to help you identify and balance priorities.

Board Development
SAGE experts will assist in developing and/or reframing the purpose of the board of directors. We understand that this should also involve a consistent process of orientation and a summary of their responsibilities. We can help determine if it’s time to review your board and ‘refresh’ parameters.

Determining and maintaining the right complement of personalities, expertise and talent for a cohesive and forward-focused board is and art and a science we can help you explore, and put into motion.

Legislation and Advocacy
Who better to assist than a former state senator who understands and can help navigate the process.

Organizational Communication
What you say, and how (when-where-and-why) you say it, to your board of directors, employees and the public, are the operational tools to move your organization forward.

The only means to manage change is through the simple business rule; Communicate CoMmUNiCaTE, COMMUNICATE!

Trust can be gained and broken depending upon the messaging content, format, and timing you use internally to employees and shareholders, as well as through external promotions and advertising. SAGE experts can help you to identify purpose, frame and deliver successive messages in effective formats to each of the audiences and beyond.
