Is your organization getting the collaboration it needs?

Boundaries are both the boon and bane of organizational life. You need people to work together across the boundaries of function, expertise, location, culture, and hierarchy. But tribal thinking too often cannibalizes the collaboration your company needs.

Leading Beyond Boundaries solves this problem by building enterprise-minded leaders at all levels who lead beyond their authority, collaborate across boundaries, and empower others to do the same.

The gears are grinding

You’ve delayered, embraced Agile, optimized digital, opened spaces, changed incentives, and adopted hybrid work – but you’re still not getting the collaboration your organization needs.

Why? Because you’ve built the conditions NOT the capabilities for collaboration

The fallout? Cross-functional conflict, unnecessary escalations, demotivated teams, fleeing talent, scrapped innovations, slow decision-making, mismanaged execution, and thinner margins…just to name a few.

Bottom line: getting things done is more painful, time consuming, and energy draining than it needs to be.

It’s time to inspire and equip your people to lead and collaborate beyond their authority – up, down, across, and outside your organization.

Break down silos with
a different kind of leader

True collaboration occurs when people see themselves as leaders – regardless of their role and place in the hierarchy – and prioritize the greater good of the company and its customers over their own and that of their “tribe.”

This is a BIG mindset shift that must be coupled with deep capabilities in listening, empathy, candor, conflict resolution, creative thinking, and organizational savvy.

The Leading Beyond Boundaries program uses our Real Work Process (RWP) to build these mindsets and capabilities while solving your organization’s toughest collaboration, matrix and cross-boundary challenges

Leadership is not a role.
It’s a mindset

Leadership belongs to the world and is everyone’s right and responsibility. It is the ability to inspire, connect, and mobilize people to solve important business problems and improve the world. It can and needs to be exercised both within and beyond one’s authority.

Todd and his team have spent decades developing people at all levels to exercise leadership in all directions.
