All Eyes
Are On You

Leading your organization means you hold a lot. It requires grit, vision and creativity. You sometimes have to make decisions without perfect information. It can be lonely, and at times, daunting. 

You need a skilled team with strong alignment, communication and the ability to rebound from challenges. You want an inspired company culture. Getting there takes commitment, support and time.  How do you get that - and fast? 

You don't have to go it alone...

We're in this with you
for the long-haul*

*until your team is ready to lead itself - then we disappear

We'll guide your team through a series of dynamic workshops (in person or online), supported with executive coaching and on-line learning content. From strategic action planning to emotional intelligence and everything in between, we support you with the skills your team needs to align and execute.

Our engagements are immersive and integrated; designed for different learning styles that engage your people in powerful 1x1, working group and full team interactions. Watch your team grow together. The outcome is accountability and connection.

We focus on the Six and a Half

Leadership

You know that developing the potential in your people is critical to resilience, agility and team cohesion. And for your organization to thrive, everyone must be empowered to lead - not just those with authority or power.

We help develop the potential in your people by emboldening each team member to genuinely know themselves, connect deeply with others, build trust, and rumble and recover in the face of healthy conflict. With these skills, teams can excel in sync.

Coaching

Top-down "telling" doesn't work anymore (if it ever did). Great leaders of today know that coach-like skills are what's needed to influence, inspire and connect.  Organizations with these skills are better able to navigate the changing world of business, hold stronger relationships with each other and their partners, are growth-oriented and are more engaged in opportunity and innovation.

We train leaders at all levels how to have coach-like conversations. The result is a much quicker path to the impact you want.

Strategic Alignment

Organizations that have an articulated vision, long and short-term goals and strategic plans are GOOD. Organizations that have people committed to delivering on those plans because they believe in them are GREAT. 

We collaborate with CEOs and their executive teams to align and implement strategic plans with high accountability, no-nonsense meeting cadence and celebration with each milestone. Shared achievements make for strong team bonds and become the bedrock for future breakthroughs.

Shared Purpose

Organizations that know why they exist and what they are here to do have proven again and again to be the best places to work. These are the companies that attract and retain talent because they harness the power of shared contribution and impact beyond the day-to-day. When employees feel their work is part of a bigger movement they prove to be more resilient and rewarded at work.

Why does your organization exist (and is that compelling to your team and community)?

Lived Values

When teams share and live the same values, they are rooted, solid, strong and clear on how to show up at work. Boundaries are clearer, individuals are more self-motivated and there is honourable accountability on the team.

We collaborate with teams to define and speak out their REAL values, so their people know where they stand and how they fit. Lived values create a culture of belonging; they empower people to be seen and supported at work.

Storytelling

The stories we tell make up the fabric of who we are and inform where we are going. Breakthrough companies pay special attention to the stories they tell not only in their marketing and sales but also internally. Being a part of a shared narrative is an essential human experience.

We know that our work stories are just as important. We help craft, embolden and position the stories your culture needs to tell.

Connect with us to experience the half

Six and a Half Consulting is a small team of executive consultants, coaches and facilitators with front-of-the room leadership skills. We exist to embolden business leaders to have big impact with their organizations through their people. As founders, Patti-Jo Wiese and Casey Miller bring big personalities, performance, entrepreneurial and academic credentials. They are system-based but always human-focused. If they were in the Middle Ages, they might be known as a Court Jester and a Heretic (you’ll have to guess which one is which!). Both get your back.

You're taking your organization places*
