Using our System of Transformation will deliver extraordinary impact.

All our services are part of an integrated System of Transformation.

We’ve been building this System for over 40 years. While each service can stand alone, they are all inter-related parts that build upon each other to increase impact.

Our System of Transformation integrates services in six areas:

Training & Development
Builds stakeholder capability through executive, leadership and change leadership training programs.
Strategic Advising & Consulting
Provides guidance for your executives, leaders and change teams in over 50 critical areas of transformational leadership, including visioning, change strategy development and culture change.
Provides ongoing one-on-one support for your executives, leaders, change leaders and change consultants: personal transformation, vertical development and conscious change leadership capability.
Provides strategic roadmaps – aka “operating systems” – that enable your leaders and change leaders to design and implement transformation, and ensure full adoption and sustainment of desired results at both the enterprise and project levels.
Leadership, team and organizational assessments identify exactly where development will be most valuable for you and your organization.
Enables you to introduce large audiences to the positive impact of Conscious Change Leadership, vertical development, organization transformation, and diversity and inclusion.

Utilizing our System generates
the “force multiplying effect.” ​

The term “force multiplying effect” came from Tony Johnstone-Burt,
former Chief of Staff of NATO, one of our all-time favorite clients.

“Being First’s integrated System of Transformation provides a force multiplying effect, where each piece multiplies the value and impact of the next pieces – the dynamic effect accelerates exponentially.”

Tony Johnstone-Burt, ex-Chief of Staff, NATO’s Allied Command Transformation; Three Star Vice Admiral (Retd)

What enables the force multiplying effect?

The force multiplying effect occurs because all the services in our System are built off a common philosophy and set of principles, practices and methods. They have integrated learning objectives, use common language, strategies, models and tools, and play specific reinforcing roles to accelerate momentum toward achieving breakthrough.

Flexibility and customization add impact.

Our System provides flexibility. You can start small, with any service for any stakeholder group as a stand-alone. If you add subsequent services, they will be set up for success and reinforce what you have already done. Or, you can go “all-in” from the start and partner with us to build a transformation strategy that deploys many services – all “force multiplying” toward achieving your desired breakthroughs. Either way works.

Our System of Transformation provides you the HOW to achieve breakthrough.

Clients tells us that our System is our “secret sauce” for delivering sustainable transformational change that achieves breakthrough because it provides all the pieces for how to do so. Setting in motion its inherent force multiplying effect enables you to raise the bar and achieve greater results than you may have previously imagined.
