Consulting services are great for tackling stubborn or vague issues

Consulting

When you have a persistent, ugly, or somewhat vague issue, it's often best to have an outside perspective. Radiant Forest can engage with your team to root out the problem and define a comprehensive solution.

Individual leadership advisory is better than coaching

Individual Advisory

Coaching has earned a bad reputation. We don't coach. We do advise. Radiant Forest believes all good leaders should have a personal board of advisors. Give us a call to see if we're be a good personal board member for you.

Leadership assessment tools are great ways to reveal and confirm gaps

Assessment

Bad organizations turn great through assessment tools and follow through on results.
The best organizations stay great through continuous assessments and responses.
Let Radiant Forest help you reveal and close any gaps in your leadership or culture through effective assessments like:

  • - 360 Degree Feedback (Team or Individual)
  • - Organizational Culture Health Check
  • - SERVANT Leadership Assessment
  • - Trust Capacity

  • The 5×10 Leadership Rule

    Team size is a critical factor in the success or failure of an organization. Most organizations permit - or expect - too many direct reports for each team lead.

    Too often we hear - or maybe even say, "they're in a leadership position". At best, this is misleading. At worst, it's flat out wrong. Your title makes you a manager.
