Take advantage of changeTM

Change isn’t going away

so…

you might as well get good at it

Many of us work in scripted environments surrounded by policy and protocol – we stick to our job descriptions, resist changes by making excuses, and creating work-arounds instead of embracing the challenge.

What if… we can change that story…?

What could we accomplish if we were more open, more flexible, more creative, and more inspired by new plans?

What if… we could work UnScripted?

UnScripted is a philosophy, an approach, a methodology, a process, a way of being that:

  • Challenges assumptions, old ideas and “the way things are done around here”.
  • Busts you out of the status quo to achieve greater results.
  • Keeps you innovating ahead of the curve.
  • Prevents you from falling behind.
  • Gives you the courage and the confidence to face the uncertainty and ambiguity that accompanies all change so that you can realize even greater success.

Instead of being blindsided or crippled by change, working UnScripted allows you to

take advantage of change.

This work is a little more daring, a little more adventurous, and a little more TRUSTING of the future.

You see… the goal isn’t necessarily to summit Everest (unless it is – sometimes change is dire and mission critical) but to embrace the smallest next step – the minute that’s right in front of you.

We’ve worked with a global tech company that was successful in spite of itself and they were “suddenly” facing the new reality of fresh and fierce competition. They no longer had the safety afforded by following their old sales script.

We’ve worked with women police officers who feel safer on the street with a homicide than back at the office facing the politics.

We’ve worked with a team at a financial institution that was so fearful of change they spent more time creating work-arounds and excuses than simply giving it a try.

In each situation, we customized a solution with the understanding that:

Uncertainty wasn’t their problem anymore… it was their opportunity.

We work better overall when we accept that the circumstances are what they are and we trust in our own ability to manage in that moment.

Everyone I have met from the receptionist to the CEO, from the janitor to the Cardiologist, from the clerk to the Accountant wants to do a good job.

But… we do our best work when we go UnScripted.

Creative Thinking

Think above the curve

UnScripted Creative Thinking challenges assumptions, attitudes and approaches, and introduces new ways to think about what you do, how you do it, and who you do it with.

Whether you are in the market for a brainstorming session that generates breakthrough ideas, or you want to empower your teams to continuously generate innovative solutions, you’re in the right space.

What if you could out-think the competition?

What if your people were productively creative and continuously producing better-than-expected results? That’s what we call thinking above the curve.

So, what’s your problem? No really, what’s your problem?

The most valuable business skills for the future will be the ability to uncover the most impactful problems to solve… and then solve them.

Creative problem solving is a results-oriented process to identify the real issues and solve your most wicked problems – the ones that can’t be solved with protocol.

Strategic Planning

More of the same is not enough

What ifyour strategic plan was your most valuable innovation tool?

The UnScripted Strategic Planning Process involves the right people, asks the right questions, ensures the conversations that need to happen, happen… and focuses the resources of your organization in all the right areas.

The result is a simple, understandable, flexible, and actionable strategic plan on ONE page that the entire organization can follow to guide decision making and get results.

This won’t be last year’s plan.

What ifyou could start with a Clean Slate and build the organization that you want to become?

In improv, anything can happen.

It’s unpredictable, unconventional, unscripted – qualities organizations often seek to avoid. Isn’t it ironic then, that these are the very things that top organizations know they need to embrace in order to remain relevant in their marketplace?

If the only thing we can count on today is that things are going to change then one of the most important skills for any leader or organization will be the ability to improvise.

Learning and applying the rules of improv helps leaders manage in the moment and to build flexible organizations that react at the speed of change.

Change Leadership

Take Advantage of Change

Change isn’t a threat – it’s an offer and we need to accept it and be willing to go off our old scripts.

But it’s no longer enough to just adapt to change. UnScripted organizations take advantage of change.

If you want different results you are going to have to do things differently. And we can’t just wait for change to end, we need to lead through the change.

UnScripted Change Leadership involves developing the MINDSET + SKILLSET + TOOLSET, within your organization that allows your employees to initiate ideas, solve problems, and strive for breakthrough results with courage and confidence.

What if everyone in your organization was excited about what could be?

What if they weren’t waiting for the script to be written?
