Let a Pulse Check fuel your activation blueprint

What’s a Pulse Check?

The Pulse Check = your fast path to informed insight + action plan.

So activation is the desired state of being – where everyone’s delivering, developing, connecting, and thriving. And winning!

The Pulse Check is simply the vehicle we use to get you there.

It’s the series of conversations we facilitate with some members of your team (generally in focus groups) that help us unlock the stick points and opportunities holding you back…and the simple, quick-hit changes we recommend you make in service of unleashing activation.

Your employee engagement survey gives you trends. Themes. Hot spots.

But what you need is clear direction. You need simple, tangible actions you can take now that will start to drive immediate change. Driving performance and engagement.

Teams today are struggling with…

  • Overwhelm and burnout
  • Frustration with inefficiency and bottlenecks
  • Collaboration across silos
  • Lack of learning and development
  • Lack of career progression
  • Unclear goals or priorities
  • Lack of purpose in their work
  • Fear of speaking up — saying or asking the “dumb” thing

And our specialty is discovering the antidotes.

So What makes a Pulse Check the answer?

We are expert in creating spaces in which people truly speak up. Not just to “complain” but in constructive and creative ways. These conversations generate real insights – but are also connective, engaging experiences. Your teams leave feeling heard – optimistic, and confident that follow up will happen. And it will!

We use the raw data from these focus groups to produce a thoughtful, actionable  blueprint for you which includes:

  • A clear, concise summary of the current experience – what’s working well and where opportunity is hiding
  • Key messages you can use to communicate results back to your team quickly and thoughtfully
  • A recommended set of near-term actions that focus on simple actions and behaviors (rather than high-cost programs or technology) you can make
  • Some longer-term actions you might consider over time
  • Strategies for engaging your leaders as activators
How it works
  1. We understand your questions, concerns, needs, observations, and hypotheses around your team.
  2. We plan and conduct a series of (typically 3–5) conversations with members of your team — listening, probing, clarifying, capturing, and thanking them!
  3. We capture themes, recommended actions, and communication points and deliver them to you within 2 weeks.

We make you the insightful, empathetic, action-oriented hero of the story! You’ll know what to say, what to do, and how to sustain momentum over time.
