Consulting Helping leaders build the culture they need for sustained performance

Our Approach to Consulting

Consulting by nature is customized, or it should be. Athena Group takes great pride in the level of customization available to our clients. Our process starts with understanding the aspirations, challenges and needs of our clients. We then bring our skills and experience to helping leaders envision the culture they need for sustained performance. The core work is then to develop and execute an action plan for achieving that vision.

Through our customized consulting services, the Athena Group can help your company:

  • Develop a high performance culture that leads to enduring results
  • Understand and improve team dynamics
  • Effectively lead change initiatives
  • Improve employee engagement, productivity and retention

Creating a High Performance Culture

Your corporate culture is the combination of expectations, beliefs, values, norms and behaviors that show your employees, customers and markets who you are, what you stand for and how you operate.

Often there is a disconnect between what leaders believe about their company’s culture and what is actually experienced by customers and employees. These disconnects can result in:

  • Difficulty in achieving business plans
  • Declining customer satisfaction scores and “churn” of customers
  • Disengaged employees who lack a sense of ownership and commitment
  • Low employee morale
  • High turnover and loss of talent
  • Inability to achieve potential synergies of a merger
