Transformational multi-level success and satisfaction powered by predictive behavioral analytics
An optimally engaged and high-performing human system is the foundation of organizational performance and agility.
During decades of work and research, we learned that the usual approaches for optimizing the human system generally do not deliver the expected results, because they run into the same wall: people do not like to be changed.
We realized the critical need for an approach that worked with the natural preferences of people, instead of against them.
It has taken years to develop but now it’s here.
A science-based, multi-level approach
Our method leverages validated predictive behavioral analytic data to optimize the functionality of the human system at three levels: the employee, the team, and the organization.
The method is based on data-supported benchmarks derived from the behavioral preferences of people who have found great success and satisfaction in particular roles. We use benchmarks to help individuals in your organization align with the roles in which they are most likely to achieve peak performance and job satisfaction. We help organizations learn how to build on the natural passion and potential of people, creating a true win-win.
At the next level, we help organizations learn how to use the behavioral preferences of individuals to align them with teams, so the combined proclivities of the members are ideally suited to fulfilling the mandate of the team.
When the different teams and levels, including the leadership levels, that make up an organization have the behavioral strengths they require, the organization can achieve unprecedented success.
We help your organization learn how to work with aggregated behavioural preference data to make strategic workforce design, development and deployment decisions.
To ensure that they can, we help your organization define the meaning system and functionality requirements to enable the full potential of your human system.
Works for organizations large and small
Regardless of whether your company is a global conglomerate or a local enterprise, it is powered by the talents of its individuals. Even when we talk in worldwide terms, we know that all human potential occurs within the small space between each person’s ears. As a result, when we optimize the potential of the individual, we create the foundation on which every organization is built.
We envision a world where people are aligned with roles that naturally give rise to the engagement, collaboration, creativity, and agility that enables their most productive and fulfilling lives, the peak performance of their organizations, and a healthier, happier, and more sustainable world.
A revolutionary approach three decades in the making
We developed our revolutionary approach during over 30 years of helping executives across a wide variety of industries implement leadership development programs, culture-change initiatives, management systems, and technology improvements. During this time, we also conducted extensive research and wrote papers and books about our learning.
The understanding that led to Ensentious: People do not like to be “changed”
Although our programs were designed and executed well, we learned that people resist attempts to change them.
This realization inspired the question that led to our groundbreaking approach: How can organizations work with, instead of against, the natural propensities of their people and their need for fulfillment?
We developed a robust conviction that we could develop a methodology that would make a win-win approach possible – a win for the individual and for the organization.
Ensentious is the expression of our shared understanding of how people work, what really leads to their success and satisfaction, and how their transformation engagement can power organizations to unprecedented success.
