“The only leadership training I’ve ever been to that didn’t make me want to throw up.”

Boris Shimanovsky

CTO, ZipRecruiter

You’ve heard it all before…

You’ve tried all the programs, consultants, coaches and leadership retreats, yet nothing actually sticks. Everything sounds good and makes sense in the moment, but one week later you feel like you are back where you started. 

You’re constantly putting out fires instead of doing the strategic ideation that will bring you closer to your benchmarks.

Work-life balance feels out-of-reach, but it’s critical for retention and results.

Your teams are working hard but still not living up to their productivity potential because they don’t have a framework for boundaries and delegation.

Accountability is lacking because there is no established practice for holding critical conversations the right way, at the right time.

You struggle with retention because “People don’t leave companies, they leave people.”

…but we have a solution.

“Refound did a masterful job of facilitating our executive offsite. It went where it needed to go, and I thought you adapted so beautifully. You wrangled the leaders to keep things on track with allowing just the right amount of push-back. I’m sure it felt natural to you, but it was really impressive facilitation. Thank you.”

“I just wanted to close that above all things I appreciated about Refound (stickiness of content, your amazing book, etc.) I'm most impressed with your team. I really enjoyed having them here. They have the perfect level of engagement, clarity, and warmth to marshal the content with our teams without feeling like consultants. I'll elaborate more when we talk, but I'm really glad we engaged despite my crazy schedule of competing priorities.”

“With Refound’s help, we are well on our way to having an organization where each person is accountable for our success, where giving and receiving feedback is fluid, and old barriers are removed through practice.”

“Yes the numbers have gotten better, but this work does so much more than that. Refound has helped us become more resilient as leaders and as an organization. We’re able to work together and have the conversations that matter, even under stress. It changes everything.”

“At CyberCube we take employee development very seriously. Our managers are measured on whether every team member is doing the best work of their career. We worked with Refound because their content is insightful and relevant. This workshop is very engaging and enabled our managers to discuss the challenges they are facing in a format that is both open and structured. The Good Authority framework allows managers to find non-obvious solutions for their challenges.”

DON'T CHANGE ME

Don't Change Me

So what needs to be present for lasting change in leadership? 

Everyone in your organization needs to speak the same language, align on a shared vision for effective leadership behaviors, and have access to the resources and support that enable their growth within YOUR unique company culture. That’s why we built something different.

While there is no magic wand that will transform how people feel about their jobs overnight, there is a well-researched and proven pathway for making this a lasting change.

In our experience, 90% of leadership problems fall into what we see as three main challenges:

1

How a leader shows up to lead

2

How a leader sets expectations

3

How a leader coaches and supports through feedback

At Refound, we call these capabilities Good Authority, Good Alignment, and Good Accountability.

The Refound System is based on how those capabilities work together to create an environment where everyone is doing the right work, in the right way.

Good Authority

Uncover how you show up as a leader and apply our More Yoda, Less Superhero framework to create balance between your individual responsibilities and those of your team.

Good Alignment

Create clarity on your team by using our Soul of the Role process to improve alignment among your team members, so that you can support business objectives while simultaneously cultivating their personal and professional development goals.

Good Accountability

Share feedback without fear, hold people to their commitments, and support their growth using the Accountability Dial, our framework for delivering feedback with compassion and curiosity. 

What you do today matters more than ever.

When you get it right, your business can be a place where instead of feeling drained people leave feeling energized. And that’s never been a more important selling point than now.

With COVID, political division, remote work, an overwhelmed workforce, mental health crisis, and emerging economic anxiety, people want connection more than ever. 

They want to feel like they’re having an impact. They want to feel like their work matters. And they want to work somewhere where leaders are held to the same standards that they are. 

There’s a world where what’s good for the business and what’s good for the humans who work there co-exist. We’re here to help.

One System.
Three Delivery Options.

While there are characteristics that you want all levels of leadership to exhibit, the support and guidance people need along the way is different.

Executives might benefit from a strategic thought partner. Managers might need help prioritizing their individual work and addressing underperformance. And new managers need support as they develop their unique approach to leadership.
