Breakthrough Results & Sustainable Leadership

Synergy Business Associates is a New York based consulting firm with global reach whose focus is on developing high performance leaders and teams. Our approach is supported by 25+ years of experience into the nature of organizational culture, breakthrough results and sustainable leadership.

We Specialize…

in delivering experiential learning programs for discovering blind spots that may be impacting your results. This is not about magic or unrealistic hopes – this is about gaining the tools to live and create with tangible and measurable impact.

The challenge in organizational leadership-development efforts has been that the approach or focus is to equip its leaders with “how-to’s” and a myriad of guidelines and procedures in a multitude of theoretical situations while overlooking certain key factors that are at the root of powerful leadership:

Context is Key
Context is often overlooked or ignored. Brilliant leaders in certain organizations don’t necessarily excel or produce similar results in other organizations.
The challenge for each of us is to have a deep awareness of our personal context and the impact this has on the organization and our leadership capacity. The programs at Synergy Business Associates are designed to focus on the individual as well as organizational context and support departments and teams in aligning under a single vision powerfully.
The Experiential Component
Leadership-development programs are often tailored as didactic lectures with some exercises (experiential) inserted throughout.
A cadre of research indicates that human beings retain approximately 10% of what they hear in classroom lectures versus nearly 66% of when they “learn by doing” or experiential work. Between 50-75% of our program content is experiential and, therefore, designed to have a lasting, real-life application for the leaders.
We Are a Collection of Human Beings
The single most important component to understanding great leadership is getting connected
… to the underlying mind-sets that each of us as humans brings to our everyday life within organizations. The Synergy programs go directly at uncovering what the underlying assumptions are that each person brings every day at every moment. At the same time, the programs focus on how to deal powerfully in a collective of diverse mindsets.
Results Are the Measure of Leadership
The programs are not simply “feel-good”, “positive thinking” or “quick fix” in nature.
We work with the organization’s leadership to monitor the business impact after a program is completed in order to improve results and effect a lasting shift within the organization.

We are Diverse & International
