Jigsaw Consulting is a boutique consultancy based around improving Organizational Health
I have dedicated most of the last decade to finding ways to make work better…for everyone, including earning a masters degree in Human Dimensions of Organizations from the University of Texas, attending dozens of seminars, and digesting hundreds of books. I know that Emotional Intelligence is the cornerstone of Organizational Health and that starts with awareness. If we cannot see our blind spots, we cannot fix them.
Jigsaw was started with the idea that work (generally speaking) can and should be better. We spend 40, 50, 60 hours or more working each week, yet 70% of us are disengaged. Managers are subject matter experts, but are not trained in how to develop people. No wonder we dread Mondays.
But this is not just about satisfaction or the dreaded “kum-bye-ya” moments… Organizational Health is about better business. I’ll make this easy on myself and quote Smet, Schanenger, and Smith of McKinsey:
The health of an organization is based on the ability to align around a clear vision, strategy, and culture; to execute with excellence; and to renew the organization’s focus over time by responding to market trends. Health also has a hard edge: indeed, we’ve come to define it as the capacity to deliver—over the long term—superior financial and operating performance.
You’ve spent the money on the best technology, worked and re-worked process improvement and change initiatives. You might have even survived a merger or acquisition, yet most of these efforts, per Harvard Business Review only yield about 30% of the expected value. That’s a lot of money left on the table and at Jigsaw, we believe we can help you unlock this value. We believe finding this value starts with people.
What are the benefits of increasing Emotional Intelligence and Organizational Health within your organization:
- Revenue (Sales)
- Decision Making
- Market Awareness
- Satisfaction (internal and external)
- Process Improvement
- Communication (internal and external)
I’m a regular guy with a fascination with humans at work. I have had several professional careers- all successful and all helped to shape Jigsaw.
Academically, I’m a bit of a late bloomer. I did not receive my undergrad in Business management until I was over 40 and them earned my masters in Human Dimensions of Organizations eight years later from the University of Texas. I didn’t “need” these degrees – I wanted them and I’ll likely get more.
I have a passion for people, nature and wellness, and I believe they are all related. I’m into music, art, sailing, hiking, fly fishing, cycling and cooking.
Why Choose Us?
At Jigsaw, we don’t believe culture consulting is a “one size fits all” affair. Each organization has its own strengths and challenges. Each of our services are pieces of the culture “puzzle”. No aspect of culture survives in a vacuum. Each are interconnected to the rest -all are equally important.
