Our Mission is to Foster Essential Conversations that Disrupt Complacency in the Workplace.
Founded June 2010, FosterEssence’s vision is to be an influencer of change conversations that mobilize people to self-select as influential leaders whether titled or not. Our programs serve to challenge the status quo, to inspire creativity and innovation while fostering inclusivity and consistent measurable change for the better.
We take a strengths-based and science-backed approach. Starting with a consultative needs assessment, we identify unique people, process and business gaps. Our solutions blend training, coaching and mentoring. We ask strategic questions, provide skill development training where it’s most needed, shed light on potential unexamined blind spots, and integrate accountability for results.
Our Motto: Spark the Leader Within. Shift from First Impulse to Best Instinct™
Everyone is a Leader
As a manager, you are a leader. You are a leader of processes, technology, people, all of the above! Perhaps you are a self-selected leader. We work with you specifically on the people-side of leadership to assess unexamined blind spots that could lead to low morale, risk intolerance, and burnout.
As a leader, you have responsibilities, influence, accountabilities. And, there are moments, perhaps even days, of being reactive to excessive stress and overwhelm.
The Human Side of Leadership
There are days when the human side of leadership is compromised, overlooked. It’s time to take action.
Be more receptive, more responsive, more change capable. Solutions are practical and experiential in nature.
- Create movement and connection. We get you out of your head and more into head, heart & gut instinct
- Recognize interconnected levels; person & system, context & role.
- Expand openness to what is emerging:“What’s wanting to happen?” vs. “Who’s doing what to whom?”
We design learning programs that blend consulting, coaching and training, ensuring learning at multiple levels – knowledge, insight, intention & skill.
Shift from First Impulse to Best Instinct™
Our programs are built on key foundations:
We each possess the capacity for self-belief, self-trust and self-worth.
Leadership, beyond functional titles, is a role that belongs to the system, to each individual on a team.
Conflict is a springboard to change, healthy constructive conflict is necessary and needed.
