Uncanny Ability to Ask the Right Questions to Meet Scope

Trevor came through for me at a time when I feared I might let my client down. His learning curve was steep but he ran when I needed him to and didn't falter when distractions came at him from all directions. Trevor has an uncanny ability to read the client and ask the right questions to provide a product that meets scope. Highly recommended!

A Versatile Business Coaching Process

Coaching is the key to making any improvement process work. Often, the best solutions to challenges are found right where they originate – with the people and equipment at work there. They have the needed experience and the ability to actually implement solutions. Paradoxically, getting to these solutions is rarely easy. Often, what is needed is the helpful hand of a good coach to guide individuals and teams past old obstacles towards solutions they themselves articulate.

Coaching is complex. Most people think of a sports coach or a drill sergeant when they think of coaching – this style is called Directive Coaching. Yet meeting tomorrow’s challenges will require the use of another coaching approach: Non-Directive Coaching

Non-Directive Coaching is the most powerful way of improving over the long-run. It releases the individual and group creativity that drives innovation. Best of all, Non-Directive Coaching re-establishes trust between the various levels of an organization, facilitating communications, and enabling lasting performance improvements

It ensures that real accountability remains with those doing the work!

Helps Me Get the Right Focus to Find the Answers

Trevor is an excellent business coach. He really listens when I describe a challenge and helps me get the right focus to more easily find the answers. Trevor helped me come up with better ideas quickly for breaking into a new industry vertical. I convert his recommendations into new business with a shorter turnaround time than I could have done on my own.

A Rigorous, Innovative, Creative Problem-Solving process

Creative Problem Solving:TSM model

From Creative Leadership by Puccio, Murdock, and Mance (2007) – Used with permission

Today’s challenges require ever more creative solutions. Innovation is not technology Innovation is the result of applying creativity to everyday challenges.

Continuous innovation is one of the least taught, yet most needed of the 21st century skills. Strangely enough, most organizations just assume their staff can innovate effectively. Sadly, this is rarely the case.

Ask yourself: does everyone in my organization use a known, common approach to problem solving? One that makes it easy to come up with new, creative solutions?

Do you actively seek out bold, new solutions and or just rehash old, industry-stale solutions? Can you speak about your innovation process with as much authority as you do the actual task of your service or product delivery to your clients and customers?

How can you and your organization creatively and effectively address every type of challenge? How do you solve every problem and maximize every opportunity?

The solution is an effective, standard, and systemic problem-solving approach that promotes the use of creativity whenever it is needed. The Creative Problem Solving approach is the result of over 50 years of academic research and extensive field validation.

Have you ever heard of brainstorming? It is just one of the techniques invented for CPS!

CPS’s power comes from both its rigor and its flexibility. It gives everyone in your organization a common problem-solving framework, language, and tools.

If you have specialized analytical tools in your business, these can be incorporated easily. This way, you get the best of both worlds.

Lastly, Synergetic Management is certified to use the CPS-friendly FourSightTM problem-solving preference assessment. Foursight identifies how each individual likes to use their creativity to solve problems. This essential knowledge prevents individuals and groups from relying too much on their preferred modes of thinking, which would interfere with effective problem solving. This knowledge alone can be an invaluable process check and communications aid when facing future challenges.

Brought Great Value in a Short Amount of Time

In the nuanced fields of coaching and the science of creativity, being able to get a handle on the many dimensions involved and convey them to others in ways that are both actionable, enduring, and inspiring is a high-order challenge.

Trevor McAlpine does just this, through work which is insightful, dynamic, and cutting-edge. He crystallizes complex information into purposeful nuggets of knowledge and wisdom, presenting them in such a way that they are both inspiring and suddenly obvious, as though you had known it all along. His wit and warmth convey an obviously deep-seated sense of genuine caring and authenticity.

He brought great value in a short amount of time, and his work has increased my capacity to bring value to my own clients in important ways.

I am very glad that I chose Trevor.
