A healthy, profitable organization

reflects successful executive relationships." There is a direct, positive relationship between profitability and effective management skills. In a healthy organization, executives work well together. They have successful relationships. They communicate effectively. They function as a team -working toward a common goal. They recognize when to lead and when it is unnecessary. They balance business with family and community relationships

As in any relationship, however, problems are inevitable. Stress often leads to reactive behavior, resulting in misunderstandings and, occasionally, conflict. Productivity becomes burdened by miscommunications. Successful resolution is not easy. An organization's complex structure may tolerate the conflict, but not without cost. A common solution is to avoid, reassign or terminate an otherwisevalued employee, which wastes time, energy and resources.

Changing inappropriate behavior by using new skills is far easier and more cost-effective. Reading books or attending a one-day seminar will not create the desired result. It requires direct and intensive intervention. Success depends on discovering the cause or "wiring" behind reactive behavior and unresolved relationship conflict.

In a safe, confidential environment, Scott Taylor works with clients to help them understand what causes miscommunication which may lead to a decline inproductivity. Generally, a client's early life conditioning sets tip their perception of successful communication. This communication pattern continues, even if objectives or results are not achieved. For example, if an employee is unable to understand a request, the executive projects and affixes negative characteristics on him or her, and stress increases for all involved. Cooperation suffers and work is delayed.
