Jerome S. Paige & Associates provides organizational consulting services in strategic planning, business development, performance measurement & management, and change management. We assist them in demonstrating how they create and deliver value. Since we bring a fresh perspective to organizational performance, we provide leaders and managers with clear and easily graspable concepts to apply to ensure their organizations are mission-driven, opportunity-seeking, outcomes-based, and results-oriented.
A key focus of our organizational consulting work is around the four elements of "trust" -- mind states, behaviors, relationships, and structures. Why? Fast-moving and change-focused organizations do not have time for "second-guessing," and since "trust" helps eliminate "second-guessing," it becomes for us "the glue that holds an organization together." Thus, the importance of Wiley's "The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team" in our work. We approach "trust" as if it's an "inherent quality." "Trust" Happens!" when its dimensions align, and we help organizations attain that alignment.
