Organization Performance Specialists, provide their clients with a complete offering of customized services to meet their key organizational needs, their budget, and to create solutions for sustainable change. Unlike any other service provider, we see ourselves as specialists that apply and implement practical solutions for ROI, Cash, and Profit impact.

Talent Acquisition: Recruiting, using our search process, for salaries from $75k or above. We have seen the conventional recruiting world being tossed upside down, as a result of this Great Recession, we offer a hybrid model.

Talent Retention: This is a focus on systemic solutions and the cultural drivers that keep the talent in house. Not only the newly hired, but those who have been with the organization for years and their investment would be lost if they exited.

Talent Transition: This includes the conventional outplacement/career transition as well as internal leadership development for transition upward or laterally.

And this is why we have trade marked this concept of unleashing the human potential of an organization, of developing the human capital in all aspects of the organization, and of using systemic solutions for sustained change as the ART of Talent ™.

This is an extremely powerful process and service that we provide. Organizations that employ this process and leverages our expertise realize immediate ROI, profits, and cash flow improvements. Managing and leading your organization talent is not always a science as much as it’s an art.

Organization Effectiveness: Using a proven organizational model, called the META-DIA Pyramid Principle ™, we are able to create integration and alignment of core organizational elements for synergy. It ensures the objectives, the strategy and the vision are not only aligned, yet are accurately translated to meaningful objectives and metrics. The organization design model is a team based, matrix (cross functional) configuration to promote speed, high performance, and organization effectiveness with special emphasis upon the required leadership skills and long term talent stream required. The model identifies and implements the key business processes required to successfully achieve the strategy and the organization's successes with focus on customer centricity and quality excellence, both external and internal. Lastly, the model identifies and implements the cultural drivers necessary for motivating the desired behavior that aligns itself to the business processes, the strategy & objectives, including the organization's values/code of conduct, recognition system, and an employee population that is encouraged to actively participate in team problem solving to achieve customer, quality, and business initiatives.

"At Thermo ( Electron) Fisher, Gordon was recognized for having the best Employee Loyalty score of all the businesses worldwide. He continues to apply those "best practices and processes" along with his leadership skills to his client base. He and his team were able to assist my business to integrate and assimilate a new management team into my organization as part of an acquisition. As being an advocate of robust business processes, Gordon couples that with leadership and team development to bring immediate results. His years of leadership experience and proven track record brings a different dimension to his practice and differentiates him from most."

"The in depth process which Gordon uses to assist someone in career transition is not only comprehensive, but is customized to your needs. His availability as a sounding board continues beyond the official program and he is always looking at the career transition process as a means to build life long relationships as part of your total career plan. He does not merely look at “packaging” one for their next assignment, but provides you with the tools to develop your own total career plan as one might do when they consult with a financial advisor. He also blends the near term financial tolerance with that of your marketing program. He is very clear that there is only one marketing campaign manager and that’s you. Gordon was able to develop several career paths, which allowed me to conduct a multi-prong job search with out diluting my effort. At the end of the day, I have been able to start my own new business with my husband (Chococoa Baking Company - Home of "The Whoopie") and to continue to maintain a business development consulting practice."

As one would say, Gordon and his team were able to identify the elephant in the room and were able to create a well working cross functional leadership team, both the senior and director level teams, simultaneously. Gordon’s unique team based, problem solving approach process not only allowed us to find a solution to a historical systemic problem that we knew we had, but the process broke down walls, created alignment and purpose for the leadership teams. This process allowed a group of 20 leaders to improve the overall effectiveness by which they led the organization. Gordon will work with the leader to prep, to provide the deliverables with passion, and will provide follow up to ensure progress is being made and concrete results are being realized. The IDAP ( Individual Development Action Plan) tool was very powerful as it provided each participant a leadership development action plan that became complimentary to our performance management system and that created a "mentoring” process as well. No question the program pays for itself several times over. We were able to achieve several hundred thousand of cost reductions as part of this program.
