About Us

Organizational Effectiveness
Mike Lane and Deb Calvert have each been consulting with management teams for over 20 years.

Organizational Effectiveness is a measure of an organization’s efficiency in meeting its objectives. There are two primary elements of Organizational Effectiveness, these are tangible elements (operations, finance, strategy, data, etc.) and intangible elements (team effectiveness, meeting effectiveness, organizational alignment, etc.) Many companies are, at the very least, competent in the tangible elements, but may have opportunities for improvement in the intangible elements. Our Organizational Development practice focuses on five distinct areas:
 Leadership team development
 Organizational alignment
 Meeting/communication effectiveness
 Reinforcement of organizational alignment through people systems
 Build strong leaders

We work with you to explore and identify your opportunities and develop a program specifically tailored to YOU. We are proud to be an Authorized Partner of Wiley's Five Behaviors program and look forward to being a part of your solution.
