Our customized roadmap gives you a distinct competitive advantage, and we help you take active leadership by developing an effective strategy playbook, strong leadership, productive culture, and sustainable growth.

While others talk about the value of having a good and effective corporate culture, we show you how to make it happen.

We implement clear and effective strategy roadmaps customized to your particular business, culture, and industry. With focus on business profitability, on-the-job skill development, effective teamwork, and meaningful results, we help you deliver a more effective and resilient culture, higher engagement, improved productivity, and a thriving, well-functioning organization. We help you plan, execute, and get it all done from start to finish.

So why trust Trive? We have been studying culture and guiding organizations for 20 years across the US, Europe, Asia and in the Scandinavian countries. We understand organizations, leadership, the workplace, and how to get business done. We have the expertise to help you get ahead of the competition and revitalize leadership, teamwork, and organizational culture. Not with talk and endless consulting, but by partnering with you to change how people work, collaborate, succeed, and get results.

We believe that all people can be productive team members, and that they come to work to do a good job with meaningful results. We all have a shared responsibility for making each person successful in their role and position.

Just imagine what your team could do in a thriving, productive environment with high levels of trust, accountability, clarity, and engagement.

We bring the Trive Factor to your business

The Trive Factor is a measure of organizational culture and health. Organizations with a high Trive Factor have a strong culture with strategic clarity, broad alignment, shared resolve, and required resources to reach and surpass organizational goals.

While being naturally agile and open to change, a high Trive Factor also eliminates the politics, drama, and confusion that often mar competitors. As a result, productivity, morale, and profitability soar, and good people rarely leave.

A healthy organization has the following characteristics:

  • People work in a safe atmosphere with a high level of trust
  • People fully engage in collaboration and decision making
  • People commit to decisions and shared accountability
  • There is a clear, short and concise strategy playbook, adopted by all
  • Learning, fun, creativity, exploration and failure is part of the job
  • Managers and leaders learn, coach and teach people on and off their teams
  • There is a shared rational for strategy, processes and human systems

Building a healthy organization begins with a broad commitment to change from executive leadership. If the leadership team is not ready to take charge of behaviors and outcomes, it will be difficult to ask others to do the same. Meaningful change and productivity gains take work, courage, and a broad commitment to growth.

Conditions will never be “Perfect” for Change. It all starts with one small step, so let’s connect!
