What We Do

Solutions 21 offers a simple process yields extraordinary results

During multiple crises, were your key partners as valuable as you needed them to be?

We were an essential collaborator with our clients throughout 2020 and beyond, walking side-by-side with leaders at all levels to help them make the best decisions they could in a rapidly changing environment. Leveraging our extensive experience as practitioners of leadership in some of the most challenging situations imaginable, our clients not only survived but developed proactive approaches that have helped them to continue to thrive in the face of unprecedented uncertainty.

We did this by applying the considerable experience of our team – successful business leaders, entrepreneurs, military veterans, and professional athletes – individuals who have successfully navigated ambiguity in environments reserved for only the most elite performers.

The Total Solution™

Solutions 21’s programs are not one-off seminars or tick-the-box requirements. One size rarely fits all, which is why we’ve used The Total Solution with clients for more than two decades and on five continents. It is critical to understand you and your business in-depth, have the ability to analyze what we’ve learned, implement our solutions, and reinforce the changes through constant effort.

Phase 1

Due Diligence

We start by building trust and credibility with your team by taking the time to learn about your organization and its priorities.

Phase 2

Analyze

We evaluate the assumptions, opportunities, and challenges previously uncovered to develop strategic and tactical implementation plans in line with your organization’s needs.

Phase 3

Implement

Implementation is different for every client. Strategies and tactics that address key business issues can be executed solely by you or in tandem with our consultants.

Phase 4

Reinforce

We continue to support your success with tailored follow-up strategies. You determine the level of our post-implementation involvement. It can range from occasional consulting to customized leadership development strategies.
