Why Active Patterns

Strategic changes happen faster than ever before and companies have to balance being nimble, while retaining a longer-term mindset. Leadership teams increase the amount of time spent on strategy, but this approach must extend beyond executive leadership, into the entire organization, for three reasons:

  1. Build and re-build human capital to maintain value in the long run

Active Patterns offers effective and affordable ways to help individuals acquire transferable skills throughout their careers, not just when they start out.

With flexible, online access, your team has unlimited access to from videos and online learning and hands-on training through practical resources and toolkits developed by practicing executives and entrepreneurs.

  1. Positive ROI for investing in employee business training

Employees who understand the system are able to break some mental patterns, are more agile, recognize threats and opportunities and outperform those who only master isolated functional parts. Fulfilling the need of self-actualization, education increases motivation and willingness to stay with the company. It is in the best interest of your organization to dedicate the right amount of time and budget to employee training.

  1. Leverage the outsider effect for competitive advantage

A well-documented catalyst for creative problem solving, the “outsider effect” allows you to distance yourself from the problem and invoke objective clarity and creativity. Tell us about your challenge and invite us to meet your team. Our workshops provide a fun, engaging way to solve business problems and are a great way to create alignment and value going forward.

We augment your expertise through advisory support, when and how you need it.
