Transforming Culture through Innovative Leadership Development to Navigate Any Market Environment
Digital disruption, financial fluctuations, customer attitudes, geopolitics, supply chain, and labor disruptions describe only a handful of challenges leaders must navigate. The pace of change refuses to slow and only continues to accelerate. Like navigating a ship in constant winds and treacherous waters, leaders need solutions to guide their organizations through “change” fatigue and create positive outcomes.
As a leader, you can do more than survive. You can thrive and build an organization of value to both your market and your employees.
With 20+ years of organizational and leadership transformation, DCC crafted a multi-modal approach to Leadership Development. Not relying on academic theory, but time-tested concepts, science-backed data, experiential practice, plus hands-on coaching through real-world scenarios, you have the tools to tailor your own transformation.

Give feedback without negative consequences by coaching toward openness and growth. You will learn the skills of giving feedback and receiving feedback that empowers and will reduce stress around development conversations.
Situational Leadership Assessment

A Case Study in Leadership Transformation
Kaiser Permanente Vision Essentials struggled with employee morale, leadership vacuums, and the ability to reach aggressive business goals. Within 6 months of building out a DCC Leadership Development strategy, they saw:
• Increase in profit in retail areas
• Decrease in product breakage in the optical lab
• Increase in emotional intelligence in leadership at all employment levels
It also resulted in an improvement in labor/management relations and a more collaborative approach to problem-solving and working relationships. Breaking down the walls and the barriers of “labor” and “management” created a stronger partnership and better communication.
Employees who were previously seen as difficult to work with emerged as leaders. Receiving honest feedback from their colleagues in a non-threatening way resulted in a shift in behavior, and their leadership qualities were able to emerge.
I now know how to look for individual strengths within each of my team members and not assume that all people are the same or should be the same. I recognize that everyone has differing awareness levels and skill sets and I know how to meet them where they are and help bring out the best in what they have to offer our team and our company. I do this by seeing the big picture, yet I know how to break down the path to organizational change into baby steps now.
