Moving from isolation to collaboration is considered to be the most significant competitive edge for the 21st century.  We work with health care organizations of all types and sizes to develop coherent (well-organized and integrated) teams where everyone works to the top of their capacity and understands how their role affects the whole team. Team members, including patients and providers, are happier, more productive and financially viable. We work with you to change a single process or engage in a complete organizational transformation.

  • Successfully achieving benchmarks, including financial goals
  • Internal shifts in role identity to stimulate team innovation
  • Increased resilience and the ability to overcome obstacles
  • Aligned improvements that engage rather than deplete

COHERENT IMPACT provides a fresh alternative to traditional change models that have failed us and led to a bankruptcy of change. In many traditional change efforts the adage “many hands make for light work” does not hold true. In fact, in traditional change many hands often make for more work and greater aggravation because initiatives are implemented in systems with silos where people are isolated, working in “teams” alone together. These teams have minimal coherence with the IQ of each member usually well above 100, while the team IQ is considerably lower than any individual IQ, often lucky to reach 50. The results of traditional methods speak for themselves with 50% to 80% of change initiatives failing due to problematic execution, 70% of workers reporting they are disengaged and this disengagement costing between $450 and $550 billion annually in lost productivity.


ISN’T IT TIME YOU INVESTED IN SOMETHING DIFFERENT?  We work with you to move from isolation to collaboration by developing coherent teams where many hands do indeed make for lighter and more enjoyable work. Productivity, financial viability, engagement, and sustainable change are the natural outcomes.  See Methodology  and Consulting Services for full details.
