Our core leadership team combines decades of accomplishment in business leadership and management consulting with 40 years of teaching experience at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Brian Griffith has taught about leadership and teams at Vanderbilt since 1998. In order to encourage open communication within student teams, he created an anonymous, online peer assessment tool in 2009 for giving and receiving meaningful feedback. In addition, he included a personal development planning worksheet and embedded training resources to encourage development. The G360 survey platform proved to be such a powerful catalyst for learning and development that it rapidly became a recognized industry leader among businesses and organizations who wanted to help managers and teams succeed in the workplace.
Soon, companies all over the country wanted leadership training based upon the G360 assessment. Two and three day Leadership Academies were created to provide performance training—based on the personalized G360 assessments and customized to the needs of individual organizations. Cherrie Clark and Garnett Slatton added their considerable business and teaching experience to lead these custom workshops along with Dr. Griffith. Most recently, Executive Coaching has been added for those who would benefit from specific one-on-one development help. Together, the G360 assessments, our Leadership Academies, and Executive Coaching provide organizations with powerful performance improvement tools that led one of our clients to say, “You saved my career.”
