The Battle for talent, Who will win?

You Don't Have a Staffing Problem

So many companies think they have a staffing problem. What they really have is a leadership problem. We agree with what one of our clients told his executive team: “There is no calvary coming to save us.” Your leaders need help learning how to lead. It starts with their ability to create clarity, build alignment, and generate movement.

You’re 3 Steps Away From An Aligned Leadership Team

Our proven process is used by some of the world largest companies

to accelerate results and deliver what matters most.

Clearly Define The Results

What makes a group function as a team? It starts with a shared set of results they're working to deliver. We know you're measuring 50 things that are important. But, what matters most?

Identify the Desired Mindset

What mindset do you need people to have to accelerate delivering the results that matter most? Identifying what's holding the team back is critical to creating movement.

Build Trust and One Team

The proprietary models and tools we use with our clients are proven to impact team performance. Don't take our word for it. We'll put you in touch with our current clients or just scroll down. 👇🏼

Your Leadership Team Needs An Outside Perspective

Can We Share With You a Story About a Hospital in the DC Area?

We met Susan when her hospital was a disaster. How else do you describe a place of healing that was actually injuring some of their patients? Susan had just been made CEO.


When she called us we started by helping her identify three results that defined success across every unit and department. Patient Safety became Key Result #1! We worked with Susan’s executive team and then the broader leadership team to create alignment around the needed mindset to change results.

Once the leadership team had clarity and alignment it was time to upskill middle managers and strengthen their ability to effectively lead people. In just a few months the hospital in the Washington DC area was transformed. Within two years Susan was promoted and put in charge of Virginia’s largest hospital.

Amazon, Lockheed, and Johnson & Johnson

The models and tools we use with our clients have created clarity and alignment on leadership teams at the world’s biggest online retailer, the company that builds the F-35 fighter jet, at pharmaceutical factories, car manufacturers, restaurant chains, food service companies, and insurance giants. We coach executive teams and impact results.

Real Executives. Real Results.

"Lone Rock is fantastic at helping leaders generate movement on their teams. They know what it means to lead teams and share extremely helpful insights and observations to shape mindset and behavior.

Elaine Thibodeau
Vice President at Johnson & Johnson
“The principles and models they introduced significantly transformed my results and did so in a short amount of time.

Vice President at Lockheed Martin
"They helped our leadership team get to the issues that matter most.

They have a style that engages you immediately and gets to the core problems you need to solve as a leader.

It’s why we’ve used them for years."
Paul Sanford
Vice President at Cigna

Need a Keynote?
Help with a Strategic Offsite?

Stop wasting time and $ on flavor of the month training. Why not invest in conversations that impact results? Whether we’re on a stage or in  a board room we facilitate discussion that creates alignment.

1. Start with the Leader

Whether preparing for a keynote at a sales conference or facilitating a multi-day executive offsite, we always start with calls with the executive leader.

2. Interview the Team

Next, we interview members of the team. We seek their perspectives on movement that's needed, look for themes, and finalize the agenda with the leader.

3. Facilitate Discussion

Finally, whether virtual or in-person our job is to get the participants talking about what matters most. Alignment happens when people feel heard.

Disruption Is Here To Stay – Be At The Forefront And Elevate Your Results

The numbers say it all: disruption is the new normal and work will never be the same. Which means managers and executives who adapt will experience exceptional results that come from an engaged, highly-performing team built on trust.

Now, these numbers can either be a roadblock to your team’s growth or become a massive growth opportunity.


So, Does This Sounds Familiar?

Most leadership teams struggle with clarity and alignment around what matters most. Silos go up, trust declines, and collaboration feels like dental surgery. Feedback is anything but open and honest. Here’s what we help solve:

What Results Matter?

Effective leaders narrow their team's focus. They prioritize what matters most. It starts at the executive level. We help create clarity around 3-4 Key Results that define success across the organization.

Who's the Decision Maker?

Ever been to a meeting who the decision maker is? Teams don't make decisions. They inform the decision maker. Our simple frameworks accelerate decision making while increasing ownership.

Is it Safe to Speak Up?

Psychological safety is never an accident. It has to be created starting at the top of the org chart. We help create a culture of candid feedback.

Why Risk Innovating?

Defenders of the status quo have sharp claws. The fear of offering new ideas or speaking up requires a different way of leading. As outsiders, we help leaders see where adjustments are needed.

Does My Opinion Matter?

Alignment requires involvement. People take ownership when they feel heard. We help executives create a listening culture.

Should I Change Jobs?

The battle for talent has never been more intense. When executives feel like progress isn't being made they increasingly start looking at options. We help you retain your leaders.
