The Strive Group offers “leadership therapy” as a healthy alternative to traditional training. These 1.5 hour modules are engaging, edgy and sometimes painfully honest group sessions in which business leaders and managers can learn from a subject matter expert and from each other. Each therapy session has a healthy dose of lecture and facilitated discussion to optimize participation and accelerate the “ah ha” moments.
We want you to have a valuable experience in these sessions. To that end, class size is limited so in-depth discussion and learning can occur.

An organization seeking to establish its first true risk management program and/or mature its existing program into an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) capability can find the process daunting. There is a myriad of frameworks, theories and best practice standards that vary based on industry, business model and public/private/non-profit sector. While the risk management process itself is straightforward, what is not so clear is how to successfully operationalize an ERM program in a way that creates synergy across the organization and positively impacts strategic objectives and resilience capability. Best practice in every one of these areas points to the harmonization between the three programs as a key characteristic of mature management capability, however, creating such a model is a challenging exercise in puzzle building for most organizations.

Power means many different things to different people. For some, power is perceived as corrupt. For others, the more power they have, the more successful they feel. For even others, power is of no interest at all. Originally, the main power sources were identified by John French and Bertram Raven in the early 1960’s through a study they had conducted on power in leadership roles. The study showed how different types of power affected one’s success in a leadership role.
Proper use of power results in perceptions of strong leadership, which lead to heightened loyalty, engagement and productivity. Inappropriate use of power yields perceptions of weak or callous leadership, which lead to discontent, fear, distrust and ultimately increased disengagement.
