One of the things we have confirmed over many years is that organizations have the same three fundamental gaps as people do. This, of course, is because organizations are made up of people.
Once your people have learned to understand the nature of the three gaps, and have learned to use the tools that will close those gaps in their individual lives, the organization is prepared to do the same.
Working closely with your executive team, 3Gaps consultants help clarify the Values, Beliefs and Goals that are driving current performance. Corporate gaps are identified and constructive plans to close those daps and enlist employees in the process are developed.
Top performing cultures are cultures where there is OVERLAP between the best employees and the organization in three critical areas.
This OVERLAP creates areas of agreement that channel energy in a focused rather than fractured way.
Start with the individual and give him/her the tools necessary to identify their values, challenge their beliefs and plan their day strategically. The process of acquiring these outcomes is called “closing the 3Gaps”.
Once individuals have an “internal focus” they are ready to interact in more focused ways as groups.
This 3Gaps approach teaches organizations how to integrate and manage individuals to work within the organization’s values, beliefs and plans. Employees “map” their values, beliefs and plans on to the organization’s values, beliefs and plans. Both groups work to create “maximum overlap”.
