The Organizational Effectiveness Model

Over the years we have partnered with CEOs and their teams across hundreds of organizations and can say with confidence that effective organizations are strong in all areas of the Organizational Effectiveness Model.   It maps out conditions necessary to create a healthy, high performing organization.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Our partnership with Cristina and her team began three years ago when they helped develop and deliver a two-year leadership program to 20 of our high performers.  Our goal was to turn solid managers into effective leaders.  We just graduated our first cohort and without exception, all participants are more self-aware, more confident and better leaders for having been a part of the Leadership Program. They are passionate about what they do, are committed to successful outcomes and aim to prove ROI on all that they do.

Peter Kozicz, President and CEO, Flintco Construction

As we looked to re-energize our Professional Women’s Network we decided we needed an external partner to assist with relevant content and a dynamic delivery.  Cristina and her team absolutely made that happen.  They did an amazing job engaging our audience and tailoring the work session to our industry and needs.  After the event the participants walked away feeling enlightened and energized from what we learned about ourselves and the topic at hand.  We have already booked our next event with Steople Group!

Kindell Walters, Senior Risk Advisor, Ernst and Young

Being a small business owner can be overwhelming and all-consuming.  Having Cristina as a coach for the past two years has proven to be one of the best decisions I’ve made.  Having not only her insights into cultural matters such as personnel issues but also her being a strategic advisor on the business side has proven invaluable and made a huge difference that has positively impacted the culture AND the bottom line results.

Suri Sicherman, Owner, Mon Petit Boutique, New York

In a pinch, we asked the team at Steople to flex to a last-minute request to have them facilitate a multi-day, off-site meeting for us. It was a creative session that involved high profile members of the leadership team who traveled in from our global locations. Shelli collaborated with us on the meeting design and pulled off a meeting in which several participants commented that it was one of the best meetings they had ever attended. We made impressive progress during the meetings and had a blast in the meantime!
