What we do

4S™ for Success and Sanity

According to BusinessNewsDaily.com one of the top four frustrations that drive employees crazy and make them unhappy is when they feel like they don’t have a voice. Everyone wants to feel that their ideas are being heard and that they’re making a difference. But in today’s whirlwind workdays oftentimes there’s a lack of communications and alignment within teams, whether they’re doing work or providing feedback. And when that happens it puts people on the defensive, making them feeling like they have to protect themselves.  While that may not be the reality, it’s their reality and it quickly becomes the reality of the company. The same is true in university and family life.

That’s where our 4S™ Conversation model comes in. It’s a versatile approach that drives dialog to uncover needs and create alignment between people. It can be used for any function, in any company at any level to create a depth of understanding that allows all participants to feel safe, heard, understood and validated.

Companies, universities and families that use 4S™ note that it increases morale, creates a more cohesive culture and motivates business results. We’ve even heard that their 4S™ success transcends the workplace and has strengthened their personal relationships, too. Because when people communicate better, everything’s better.
