Teams, both virtual and traditional, have become an established institution among companies aware of the increased creativity generated by having a variety of people working together on a critical project. Research has shown that when creative solutions are the goal, the cross-pollination and synergy offered by a team is an effective approach. While “domestic” work teams are well-established, global teams, which cross cultures, and languages, are increasingly recognized as offering even greater potential. They leverage the expertise and life skills from a variety of cultures, creating a synergy that arises from the mix.
Keogh & Associates, LLC helps teams to be effective by enabling the members to identify and harness the different cultural strengths represented. This requires not just an acceptance of differences, but the ability to reconcile them and to generate business synergy. Our programs are customized for the specific objectives of the team.

One of the principal reasons for the failure of newly promoted managers is their perceived lack of “empathy”. Traditionally, good managers used to coach their subordinates and high potentials. Unfortunately in today’s organizations with blurred reporting lines and flatter structures the traditional model does not work as well.
For managers, high potential employees and leaders faced with international or cross-cultural challenges, Keogh & Associates, LLC can provide one on one coaching. The process begins with an interview, an assessment and then via telephone and e-mail. By providing an outside view combined with a safe and supportive environment we enable clients to quickly achieve improved effectiveness and productivity.
