Our years of experience as both the overwhelmed HR leader and the insecure individual terrified of leading others and public speaking gives us the ability/perspective to easily identify and address the biggest challenges and ways to tailor the solution. We are living proof that insecurities and limiting mindsets can be overcome and once we allow our true self to show (even if we tend to be quieter and more reserved), we can go beyond what we ever thought possible.

Being part of the HR profession for many years, we know intimately what it is like to get pulled in so many different directions, expected to solve everything people-related.  This experience allows us to comfortably step in and provide much needed support, easily customizing our style/approach based on your needs. We can facilitate your training programs for you. We can bring our own leadership development programs to fill a void in your current training program. We can provide staff augmentation support – we find great pleasure in focusing on the behind-the-scenes leadership development program management details that you are too busy to focus on.

At Cohesive Outcomes, we believe everyone is capable of incredible things when they are feeling confident, secure, and calm. People deserve feelings of accomplishment and serenity, but all too often, don’t feel this way or know how to get there. They are so overwhelmed with life that they don’t take the time to focus on getting there.

That’s where we can help.

By bringing a sense of calmness and welcoming, inclusive style that puts people at ease, we focus on helping in two areas that companies value most:

Support for Business

Often, HR is a big ambiguous bucket that all employee issues fall into. It’s impossible for a small HR team to be able to provide quality services for everything and everyone — often hindering development opportunities that employees are desiring.

Here’s how we can help:

  • Facilitating your training programs
  • Bringing our own leadership development programs to fill a void in your current training curriculum
  • Providing staff augmentation support

We find great pleasure in focusing on the behind-the-scenes details — ensuring everything gets done properly, allowing you to focus on what you do best, and find most rewarding.

Support for Individuals

As individuals progress in their career and grow into subject matter experts, their responsibilities begin to include leadership, presenting information, and even training new team members on their area of expertise. These are activities that they may not be comfortable doing, or even feel that they are skilled at.

Here’s how we can help:

  • Breaking through fear and insecurity — allowing your true self to shine
  • A mindset shift to confidence — realizing you are capable of amazing things
  • A renewed vitality — enjoying your life to the fullest doing what you love to do

Ultimately these changes benefit HR leaders as well

Your successes are only as great as your willingness to take the first step. From there everything else grows.
