How we're different
At Symphony Advantage, we leverage proven existing and proprietary methods to support our clients on their stakeholder capitalism journey.
The Birkman Method
The Birkman Method remains a preferred instrument to better understand interpersonal dynamics and achieve higher performance through positive psychology. It is used widely in the fields of career coaching, leadership development, human resources management, and organizational design today. At Symphony Advantage, we leverage the Birkman Method for:
Leadership development: Great leaders interact with intention by demonstrating self-awareness and emotional intelligence in complex environments to lead their organizations more effectively. Birkman provides an unmatched assessment portfolio with in-depth reports for leaders to gain actionable insight into their motivators, behaviors, and blind spots. Identify the gaps between how they’re perceived and what they need to increase their effectiveness as a leader. Then, tailor their leadership style to meet the underlying expectations of their direct reports to drive organizational success.
Team effectiveness: Through our learning journeys, we enable teams to have an exceptional quality of dialogue, to make effective decisions together and to have collective clarity of thought. These teams provide clear, credible and compelling direction to the organization. They have trust, both in themselves and each other, as well as in the decisions they make. They unite around a shared purpose and thrive at co-creating.
Talent development: Organizational success depends on motivated employees that drive success across all levels of the organization. We provide our clients with in-depth data sets and turn these insights into an actionable plan to accelerate employee growth, manage blind spots that can hinder development and success, and recognize the motivators that drive career decisions. We help accelerate individual growth for employees through personalized coaching.
Hiring and selection: Searching for the ideal candidate is a lengthy and challenging process—hiring someone that possesses the job skills and interpersonal competencies, and aligns with the organization’s culture demands extensive recruitment and organizational resources. Technical abilities and industry experience are important factors to consider but won’t optimize the hiring process to maximize employee retention. At Symphony Advantage, we help our clients through that complex process by providing a full suite of recruiting solutions including: job scorecards, interviews, internal candidate reviews, assessments, negotiation, job offers, onboarding and 90-day coaching.
Many companies are trying to solve today’s challenges with yesterday’s strategies. However, the world has shifted, and operating systems need to adapt accordingly. At Symphony Advantage, we help companies shape a viable framework for consciousness that achieves sustainable and profitable results. We help our clients embrace the stakeholder economy with a business structure approach that delivers exponential value to all stakeholders.
How do we do that? We work with the leadership team in real time to uncover your organization’s hidden potential. Implementing stakeholder capitalism is not an initiative. It is an ongoing, daily mission. It is about innovating. In 8-week sprints that fit easily into your schedule, we’ll eliminate tensions and constraints, jumpstarting an Evolutionary Operating System based on purpose, planet, people and prosperity. Your entire team will experience how incredibly rewarding and profitable it can be to accelerate sustainable business.
