Hi. We’re 304.
When we’re not working 1:1 with teams and individuals, encouraging talent to thrive at work, or innovating how custom training is delivered…..
…...we’re helping progressive businesses and visionary organizations foster environments of learning, experimentation, and innovation to develop perfect-fit employees.
What do you want out of your talent strategy and leadership consulting partnership?
- The best communication tools and education design integrated across multiple environments
- Savvy, creative, and proactive approaches to the way training is accessed and delivered
- Everyone working together in a culture of inspired teamwork so that we can grow nimble and powerful companies that rise to any occasion and build strong sustainable businesses by design.
We’re on a mission to expand the positive impact of progressive leadership based on neuroscience for our own team as well as the thousands of companies on an exponential growth trajectory who need to hire, retain, and develop a pipeline of top talent at warp speed.
If you need an expert to assess and implement customized programs, strategies, and resources, we are at your service.
We specialize in talent strategy and leadership excellence, empowered by a blend of neuroscience, adult learning design, culture building, top-notch program development, leadership training, C-suite support (...and everything a progressive organization needs to thrive).
Consultants are team players, in both advisory and assistance. We help you:
- Work through anything currently holding teams back: investigate, evaluate, and solve culture and communication problems.
- Get the people the training that they need making sure leaders understand how to identify opportunities for growth, experimentation, and innovation in an education-based model.
- ID the right coaches, consultants, and experts to work seamlessly and successfully with your organization. We concentrate our efforts on bringing a continuous flow of qualified people.
- Overcome talent-strategy growing pains so you can focus on keeping the company strong and providing progressive leadership for all.
- Highlight the language of effective leadership and learn how to design a landscape that strengthens the health and well-being of your company culture and wonderful workforce.
Talent Gap? What Talent Gap?
Employees who are flourishing love to come to work each day and feel a sense of responsibility for their performance because they are truly supported to achieve their highest potential.
Companies that prioritize a healthy work culture and professional development are prospering because when we understand how humans want to work, we can thrive at work—capable of anything and growing on-pace with the fulfillment of any business mission.
In other words, they close the Talent Gap, that stagnant and unproductive place when your team just doesn’t have it in them to deliver big business growth, operational excellence, or expansive ideas.
If you want to have a company comprised of healthy, happy, and proactive people ready to be a part of something bigger than themselves, you must get intentional, very intentional, about cultivating psychological safety and providing support / professional development.
When members of the team experience trust, transparency, and shared understanding, strong and sustainable relationships form. Each team member is willing to go to the ends of the earth to see their team win…making the dreaded “Talent Gap” pretty much irrelevant.
This work transforms teams, individual contributors, and leaders. 304 gets everyone playing from the same sheet of music, speaking the same brain-happy language, and orchestrating towards a common goal.
Close individual Talent Gaps and minimize business risk through healthy organizational design.
