THE FOUR GEO MINDSETS

MINDSETS
MAKE THE
DIFFERENCE

We believe that exceptional results begin with the right MINDSETS.

Mindsets are the guidance software between your ears. They determine where you focus your attention, how you interpret information, how you respond to people, and how you make decisions. In short, they help shape your thinking and behaviors.

There are four Mindsets driving GEO’s strategic services:

  • THINK Smarter Together
  • PLAN for Maximum Impact
  • ACT to Get Rapid Results
  • LEARN to Build Capacity

We achieve exceptional results because of our principles, processes, and tools are designed to be aligned. They will help you THINK, PLAN, ACT, and LEARN in an integrated way.

Think Smarter Together

Upgrade Your Strategies With Collective IQ

“At Google, we adhere to the view that the many are smarter than the few, and therefore solicit a broad base of views before reaching any decision.” ~ Eric Schmidt

In most organizations, only a few leaders participate in strategic meetings. What happens in these meetings is rarely communicated effectively. Without enough detail and nuance, it’s hard for those who didn’t participate to fully understand and enthusiastically support the strategy.

The GEO solution is to use Collective IQ Tools™ to expand the circle of thinkers. Having a diverse, critical mass of people participating increases the quality of thinking and energizes engagement. The participants not only understand the nuances of decisions, but also have a sense of ownership. They become authentically committed, make smarter tactical decisions, and strive to execute.

PLAN FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT

FOCUS ON LEVERAGE POINTS TO OPTIMIZE RESOURCES

“Leverage points are points of power. People intuitively know where they are.” ~ Jay Forrester

During strategic planning, there is often “resource anxiety” — worrying that there will not be enough people or funding or time to execute effectively. The solution is Leverage Point Focus™.

A Leverage Point is where you can have the greatest impact with the least effort. Think about what happens in bowling when you hit the #1 pin in just the right way. Presto, all the remaining pins go down. That’s having the greatest impact.

For every strategy, there are multiple Leverage Points — key customers, key suppliers, key employees, and key processes like innovation, marketing, and decision-making.

ACT TO GET RAPID RESULTS

ACHIEVE THE SPEED YOU NEED TO SUSTAIN YOUR SUCCESS

“Often the window of opportunity is very small, so speed is of the essence.” ~ Richard Branson

In our fast changing environment, what used to take months and years, often occurs in days and hours. This compression of time means that laggards lose.

The GEO solution is Parallel Execution™ — orchestrating many aligned actions at about the same time. You achieve the speed you need to deliver rapid results because multiple events happen simultaneously.

There is a second important benefit with Parallel Execution™. Single-point failures are not show stoppers. Because there are many actions, you have multiple ways to achieve impact.

Learn To Build Capacity

DEVELOP NEW SKILLS AND WAYS OF THINKING

“In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” ~ Eric Hoffer

When the rate of leadership learning falls behind the rate of change, problems abound. That’s why leaders need to learn MORE, learn BETTER and learn FASTER.

The GEO solution is to deliver Knowledge Bytes™ — easy-to-digest best practices and proven techniques — as an integral part of our strategic services.
