R.E.D. Virtual

100% Virtual Readiness, Execution, and Development to keep your business moving forward and your people safe

For 30+ years you have co-innovated with us, pulled us forward into many new services and evolved us from being your simulation and practice partner, to partners in broader leadership, go-to-market enablement, and culture-shifting change and transformation.

We’d like to return the favor. We want you to feel confident in your ability to protect your people and continue business momentum.

Our Promise

We’ll be alongside you to make sure that anything in your strategy and plan for your people and your organization is available virtually or digitally. We will adapt any of our current engagements with you to 100% Virtual at no additional cost.

In the spirit of being helpful, on this page you will find six moves that we are actively engaged with for many of our global clients already. All of these moves are 100% virtual and digital. All of them are practical, on-strategy, and designed to change how your people think, lead, and work during this tricky time.

Virtual Readiness

Protect Your People and Powerful Alignment Offsites

icon

What we're hearing: 

“Our people need to lead and think differently now. How will I get our leaders aligned and executing fast if we cancel the offsite?”

 

icon

Our take: 

Until safety is certain, do cancel flights and hotels.  But keep the meetings and run them virtually instead. Consider broadening the virtual participation to thousands. They will hear directly from top leadership and feel involved in the thinking and immediate actions.

Preparing leaders to execute in a downturn

icon

What we're seeing:

Are your leaders ready to lead in a downturn? What is their overall level of recession readiness? Will they be ready to adjust when we are coming out of a slowdown?

 

icon

Our take:

The highest performing people and teams in athletics and the military have a practice to performance ratio of 95% practice to 5% perform. Give your teams the chance to debate and wrestle with a shift in strategy, convincing themselves it is the right path forward. Give them the space to practice leading their teams differently, use nuanced acumen to make better business decisions, and understand what different conversations with customers feels like. Out of this practice you can expect your leaders to have matured enterprise perspective and faster decision making aligned to the priorities most critical to the coming months.

Virtual Execution

Strengthen Your Leadership Culture

icon

What we're seeing:

Imagine one leader who believes, “our company may not be successful through corona impacts” versus another one who believes, “we are going to change and become a better firm, it’s a challenge I can handle.”

 

icon

Our take:

Mindsets are just as critical as strategy to execution. Doubling down on leader readiness and helping all of your leaders articulate and own the personal mindsets most critical to your strategy and culture. These mindsets will drive their behaviors and the environment they create for their people to do their best work (or not). Companies must help their leaders disrupt their current mindset, shift to a new mindset, and give them the time and space to practice and begin to live their new mindsets.

Stay Close and Adapt with Your Customers

Staying Close and Adapting With Your Customers

icon

What we’re seeing:

In a downturn, or even in uncertain times, the conversations between sellers and buyers change. There is more of a need to demonstrate value in terms that are specific to each buyer’s changing priorities. Learnings for sellers and managers on this topic need to happen rapidly and be modular and layered so organizations can stay close with their customers while upskilling.

 

icon

Our take:

Fast, flexible, and easy-to-use modules delivered virtually or digitally self-paced allow your sellers and managers to perform in common, critical situations. Being Great in these moments separates the best from the rest.

Virtual Development

Turn Downtime Into Upskill Time

icon

What we're hearing:

“This is an opportune time to train and develop. With our people at home, and business slowing down, it is actually a great time for our people to upskill.”

 

icon

Our take:

Going forward, more and more learning will be virtual, digital and local. It will increasingly be line leader-led or self-directed in the flow of work, whether from home, in the office or on the go.

 

Never Waste a Crisis

Prepare for Tomorrow by Re-Imagining Today: Radically rethink how to best equip your people, virtually

icon

What we're hearing:

A high percentage of truly breakthrough innovations come in tough times. Organizations can either bunker down or use the challenges to be creative.

 

icon

Our take:

A paradigm shift has occurred. The corona-inspired, work-from-home reality, is an opportunity to radically rethink our views on what can be done virtually. We recommend holding the mindset that most everything will be done virtually (at least for a while).

Talent and Learning Organizations have a watershed opportunity to pivot their teams and resources to:

  • Accelerate the most important strategies for the company and equip leaders to drive top priorities
  • Inspire action with a leadership style that creates positive spirit and trust and that unlocks energy and creativity
