The Systainership Program.

 

IF you are feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of growing your business and being sustainable...

Your business is on a rollercoaster with economic swings. Customers want to know more about what you are doing to preserve the environment. Your company has been working on basic energy conservation, but you know that is only the tip of the iceberg. Wal-Mart has initiated its Sustainability Index. You fear it is only time before other retailers do the same, and worry if your business products will meet the requirements to be put on their shelves. Your stockholders are wanting greater value from their shares in both the short and long-term horizons. Employee morale is low, turnover is high, and training costs are skyrocketing with no loyalty. All this leaves you wondering where to go from here.

 

Then gain focus and control and move forward sustainably...

Systainership™,  an innovative program for sustainable leadership, can help you regain control and lead your business forward in a sustainable way. It has four major components to support business leaders striving to grow triple-based profitability. These four components are: the foundational stucture and practices of Systainership™, the Systainership™ Officer's Club, the Systainership™ Log,  and Systainership™ Fast-Track Executive Coaching.

 

Systainership™ - The Leadership Building Blocks

W. Edwards Deming was a statistician, professor, and consultant, reknowned for his teachings adopted by post-WW II Japanese industries which helped them turn their economy around. He professed that if you can't explain what you are doing as a process, then you don't know what you are doing. Systainership™ integrates the wisdom of the ages, philosophies of leadership gurus, and principles of sustainability into a cohesive system. Systainership™ is composed of 3 leadership directives, with all functions fully integrated and scaled to the small-to-medium-sized company.

 

The Systainership™ Officer's Club

The Systainership™ Officer's Club is a facilitated, mastermind group of business leaders sharing their insights and challenges in leading their organization to a sustainable future. Napoleon Hill, in his famous book Think and Grow Rich, shares his findings that people emulate those they spend time with and the most successful people were involved in mastermind groups. The most famous examples are Henry Ford and Pablo Picasso. Your Systainership™ Officer's Club can be an internal corporate group, or an inter-corporate group of top business leaders - each powerful in its own way to help you move your business forward. Systainership™ Officer's Club meetings use a comprehensive dashboard report, which contains your Systainership™ Log, to keep the meetings focused and efficient, and leverage everyone's knowledge.

 

The Systainership™ Log

The Systainership™ Log is a high-level, consolidated report that defines, supports and directs the focus of your leadership toward success. It shows the readings of the core navigational instruments of your company. It is in a very consistent, concise format, easy for others to read in just a moment and be up to speed to help you generate new ideas on your most pressing issues.

 

Systainership™ Fast-Track Executive Coaching

The Systainership™ Fast-Track Executive Coaching is for business leaders who want to push the envelope of accelerating the growth of their company's sustainable profitability. One-to-one executive coaching supports them in doing that.

 

 

Getting Started with Systainership™

The first step in the Systainership™ Program is to become acquainted with this system for sustainability leadership. The Green CEO: Leadership that Drives Profit and Sustainability, by Lynn VanLeeuwen, provides the introduction to this system, along with great examples, references, system diagrams and a quick guide.

Gaining Synergy through Collaboration

It is often lonely at the top of your business, with no one whom you can confide and trust to discuss your most pressing issues with honesty, respect and compassion. We strive to give you an ultimate environment for finding the kind of support you need. Napolean Hill, author of the classic book Think and Grow Rich defined a master mind group as "The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony." And that "No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the master mind]." The Systainership™ Officers' Club is such an opportunity for you to receive this type of expertise leveraging.

 

Our program is master minding in the purest sense. It does not include training, group coaching, or business networking. It is business leadership experts brainstorming their ideas to benefit one another in a facilitated environment, which makes the whole process efficient and aid accountability. Members are a catalyst to the success of others by conveying their experienc, acting as a devil's advocate when exploring new ideas, and cheering each other on to success. The meeting agenda is set by the members and is conducted within the facilitation guidelines. The members most importantly discuss issues related to their business challenges. As an aid in doing that, they may also discuss how the Systainership System can be utilized to aid their process or how to best define their critical success factors and track their progress using the Systainership Log. 

From participation in a Systainership™ Officers' Club you will:

  • Sharpen your leadership skills
  • Achieve progress in growing the triple-based profitabiltiy of your company
