Consulting is at the heart of Arcadia Group's leader and organizational development services. We first work with you to understand your company's big goals and the most important levers that impact those goals. Then we develop the most effective programs and services, which focus on the critical levers and activities directly related to those big goals. Our consultative approach comes from 30 years of experience deploying a full range of tools to increase company value through the development and mobilization of key talent.
Rapidly generate value through organization and talent.
Shift an organization and its people to a new desired state.
Develop organizational culture to engage and align employees.
Successfully launch key and strategic initiatives.
Learn and implement best practices from the private equity industry to rapidly generate value by aligning, engaging, and optimizing your entire organization with your strategic goals. These methods can be adapted for a variety of organizations looking to achieve accelerated growth. Arcadia Group helps you apply these methods and develop the high level of managerial rigor necessary to actualize dramatic change.
In addition to any customized work, we offer different integrated programs:
The First Year Program engages the entire organization and mobilizes it around a new strategy or change initiative during the first year, which is critical for accelerated growth in future years. If relevant, we begin by integrating new leaders into the organization and creating a development path. During the crucial first 100 days, we comprehensively align the organization around the new goals and objectives. After creating this strong foundation, we develop the momentum and success necessary to bring the new initiative into the significant value creation phase.
The Optimization Program moves an organization's performance from good to great by building upon the early efforts of alignment and engagement. We optimize performance by helping companies make adjustments, identify key areas of leverage to create competitive advantage, pursue greater challenges, mature the organization's culture, and master the development work done by leaders in the earlier stages of growth.
The L.E.A.D. Program specifically addresses the development needs of leaders by engaging, aligning and developing leaders through assessment and coaching, retreats, development programs, and conferences.
These comprehensive programs examine multiple levers of the organization, including the underlying mindsets of leaders that drive their activities. They align, engage and optimize the organization around a new initiative, which establish the foundation, momentum, and refinement necessary to generate accelerated growth.
Arcadia Group offers the Delta Program, which delivers a mid-course correction to get an organization back on track with its strategic goals or change initiative. This program is a combination of assessment, alignment, and engagement to determine what levers need to be pulled for success. We examine the the structural issues, execution, and the underlying mindsets at work in the organization.

Assess and develop organizational culture to increase value through employee engagement and organizational alignment. People can do amazing things when they are in supportive and energizing cultures. Such cultures encourage high performance, customer focus, and meritocracy. They generate trust and a determination in employees to actualize the company's objectives. Yet culture is not ready-made. An organization's structure and policies will drive culture, as will the activities and mindsets of leaders. Arcadia Group helps you generate a winning culture to mobilize your people to new heights of performance.
Key initiatives have a targeted focus and may be done for strategic purposes, philanthropic purposes, customer relations, or improving visibility and standing in the community. Many key initiatives fail because of initiative-fatigue, inappropriate level of sponsorship, lack of engagement, poor roll-out plans, and unclear linkage to the organization's goals, mission and culture.
Arcadia Group has extensive experience implementing successful key initiatives within companies and across groups of companies quickly and effectively, for example building and running a Veterans Initiative.
