Increase the Steady Speed of Your Organization

Connect Colleagues and Win.

Energy flowing vertically does not serve your customers.

The Connector System® accelerates the energized achievement of cross-functional priorities by developing 3 daily disciplines:

Deep Alignment to Imperatives_large
A Shared Reality_large
Empowered Decision Making_large


Employees too often align to their vertical, rather than the customer. They send essential information up, then wait for decisions to come down before executing with cross-functional peers.

The problem graphic

Today, new information is generated faster than management can make decisions. The result? Employees wait, poor decisions are made, and toxic conflict erupts between colleagues.

Productivity doesn’t have to be painful.
Your people want to do great things together.

It takes 18+ weeks for your Connectors to become officially certified. Candidates spend on average 1.5 hours per week and can implement their learning right away.

The certification program is 100% virtual.

Candidates will need to pass a knowledge assessment, submit two peer assessments, administer an Alignment Calculator, and submit a partner engagement assessment.

A great Connector Candidate:

  • Is dedicated to your organization’s mission and enterprise outcomes outside of their position’s responsibilities
  • Has strong interpersonal, communication, and collaboration skills
  • Has the proven ability to build relationships across all levels of your organization
  • Is a life-long learner committed to growing and developing themselves and others
  • Seeks opportunities outside of their comfort zone and tries new things
  • Is comfortable giving and receiving feedback
  • Is outcome-oriented, demonstrating a determination to drive things forward, ensuring decisions are made and followed through
  • Is a standout colleague—they actively contribute with a can-do attitude to create a collaborative and connected environment

30-years of experience are leveraged to provide you the simplicity and flexibility you expect in a premier certification program. As partners, we’re focused on key milestones while being available to you throughout the process.

Our clients use the Connector certification program, as they say, “to put their change management efforts on steroids.” Others focus on providing the proven disciplines of the Connector to augment their Lean or Agile investments. The question to answer: Where will our business benefit the most from greater alignment, shared reality, and empowered decision-making?

No. This is a modern approach to developing organizational disciplines in the flow of work. When your Connectors share knowledge, they’ll be doing so by modeling, consulting, and in partnership with you as you break the barriers to achieving your most important priorities.

Not currently and we’ve received a lot of interest, so we are working on it. 
“With Connectors we can now do micro-adjustments to our leadership and culture in real time at the moment of need, instead of a macro-intervention that is out of daily business context.”
