Incredibly Insightful

I love the regular diet of thoughtful themes that the team work through to help the audience on such a wide range of issues relating to work, relationships and life! Sometimes reading through a book I can get a few key points, but having bite sized snacks of insight makes it easier to put many things into action, I love it and so thankful to the Table Group team for the gifts of wisdom they're sharing in this.

Full spectrum impact

Since joining my current organization St Giles down in Tasmania in Australia, we’ve introduced the 5 behaviors to our leadership teams, used the ideal team player as a lens through which to employ new managers, applied the steps of the advantage to our recent strategies plan, with a real focus on core and aspirational values.... just recently we put all our leaders through the 6 working genius model - which can I say had been transformational, but most impactful is the shared language we have across the organization that is to your work at the Table group. Thanks Pat, Cody and your team for all that you do for org health around the world.

Thematic Goal

Thanks for your work, Patrick and the team.
We have been following this in our business during COVID and are using the Thematic Goal and teams model to guide us.
I will mention your work today on a nationwide manufacturing forum here in Australia on how we used this strategy to guide our teams during COVID-19.
You are also making a difference to Australia!!
