Ripple Affect Model

Strategic Alignment

Are your board, executives and leadership team on the same page strategically?  Could your employees be more engaged and productive?

When vision serves as true north, people connect the dots. They see how their individual efforts contribute to the vision and relate to others through shared purpose. Vision cascades down to inform strategies and operations while emotional connection moves up to the purposeful vision.

“The Ripple Affect prepared me to help lead change with our Board and staff. Flossie caught nuances of change, coached me through them, and shared research that gave me the confidence to posit a new direction with my Board. As a result we successfully pivoted.”

Are change and transition your new normal? Do you lack a leadership pipeline?  Do you value healthy conflict but struggle with language for it?

Affective Leaders invite diverse perspectives, bring curiosity to conflict, and think long term.  Like mountaineers, they go down to acclimate in order to summit. It’s below the surface where they observe their thinking, detach from emotions, put themselves in others’ shoes, and model the behavior they want to see. Comfort with discomfort is their top KPI for growth.

“Flossie brought incredible perspective that created structure, provided facilitation, and led to achievable goals aligning the leadership and employees during a time of transition for the firm.”

Community Engagement

Do you want to do good while doing business yet get frustrated or lack the right partners?  Would you benefit from relationships with community groups and local officials?

Organizations that seek customer feedback, connect with neighbors, and build partnerships gain insight and loyalty.  Taking time to listen builds trust and shared goals. Partnership development that complements board service, philanthropy and volunteerism can lead to healthier communities, public-private partnerships, solutions that deliver social impact and improved ROI.

“Flossie helps us navigate working with the community. Her strategic perspective and knowledge of the sector have resulted in partnerships that benefit our business and family relationships with nonprofits and the customers we both serve. ”
