TAI Incorporated also offers consulting, executive coaching, team alignment seminars, and cultural integration initiatives to help you create a high performance culture in your organization...and as every leader knows, performance is what matters in delivering desired results. Our consultants are seasoned business executives who work closely with leaders to build Awareness–Alignment–Accountability, the process necessary for creating values–based performance.

Our services include:

Executive Coaching and On-boarding

The demands of leaders shift constantly. Given market changes, ever changing responsibilities, customer relationships and team dynamics, the only constant is change. TAI provides values-based executive coaching for current leaders to develop and maximize their leadership impact by helping them navigate change, articulate direction, earn influence, build high performance teams and create results-driven corporate cultures.

The first 100 days of a new leader’s tenure represent both unique opportunities and incredible risks. Our consultative approach to new leader on-boarding gives newly placed executives the jump-start and early wins needed to firmly establish themselves in new roles.

High-Potential Development

Perhaps the most valuable asset to any company is its emerging leaders—leaders that can be grown, cultivated, developed and deployed. Our individualized approach to developing high-potential and emerging leaders insures strong bench strength, enhances retention of key talent and prepares emerging leaders for roles of increasing scope and responsibility, all in support of a values-based culture.

Team Alignment

Probably the greatest opportunity for creating true competitive advantage lies in developing aligned and effective high performance teams. Key areas of focus are: mission—to create purpose; values—to determine behavior; trust—to establish unity; alignment—to enable productivity; accountability—to insure performance. TAI offers customized seminars and team coaching to promote maximum performance and effectiveness of teams.

Cultural Integration

Organizational culture is a direct result of leadership attitudes and behavior, emulated by followers, and has a critical impact on the organization’s ability to drive desired and predictable results. TAI works with leaders to create a positive corporate culture—a culture where leaders align employees on a worthy mission and motivate them toward values-based behavior to create true competitive advantage and achieve sustainable high performance. Our methodology includes coaching and "visioneering" for the organization’s leader, seminars to create the organization’s specific value-set and group training to cascade and implement those values throughout the organization.
