At Steaming Kettle, we deliver tools and solutions that work. To us, this means getting to know you, your business, and the unique challenges you face.
It means respecting your people.
It means not wasting your time or your money.
It means earning future business through jobs well done.
Living up to our work ethic is important to us. We welcome feedback from our clients. How are we doing? How can we do better?
Want your direct reports to create significant change? Want them to make the critical connections with other bureaus, offices, and programs that can make the City hum? Know that change is coming and want to have your people be the change instead of getting run over by the change? Can you see which plays should come next, yet need some help to get your people moving constructively?
We’re getting smarter about making change and solving problems: people who care and collaborate can be astounding. But what can we do as managers, as supervisors, as leaders-in-development to help them?
The first key is to build our ability to motivate high-knowledge, high-skill workers. With this in mind, participants sharpen their vision for change into language that gets people out of their chairs. We’ll catalyze a good team and work with them to identify what has to change, who has to change, and the barriers that stand in our way. We’ll practice rapid planning techniques, quick, effective communication, and adaptation in the face of new challenges. Part of our work will assess the gaps between rapid prototype and a full-scale solution, and shift our efforts from proof-of-concept to full adoption. There will be serious challenges along the way, and we’ll examine effective actions—both proactive and reactive—that can help keep us moving towards our goal.
