The KENNA Company equips each hiring manager with the tools and information needed to assist every person in becoming a highly motivated and effective team member. Helping Leaders Select and Engage High Impact Performers  
Practical and pragmatic coaching for executives and managers who want to accomplish more - faster. We help companies transform their hiring process into a system that allows them to hire the right candidate for the job. The benefits can transform a company. We offer 'on-site' team building for new or 'stuck' teams.  We also sell TeamTraks, an easy-to-use set of modules which can be used off-the-shelf to address a number of team intervention needs and competencies. Our most requested training is for Improving Communication Skills and Improving Managers' People Skills .  All training is customized to meet the client's specific needs. We sell the leading assessments and surveys available (and support your use of them in any way you need). Assessments include The TriMetrix System (benchmarking job and objectively assessing candidate fit), Attributes Index (job competencies), Success Insights (Personality tests, behavioral assessments, motivations indicator assessments) and Insight Inventory.  Many assessments available in up to 15 languages. Someone completes one of our assessments via the Internet every 4.1 seconds!  We can also 'custom design' any survey to meet your needs including 360, customer and employee satisfaction. For those companies and individuals who are not familiar with our products or service, we provide a free team needs assessment from TeamTraks, an opportunity to complete one of our assessments, newsletters, articles, and a free coaching session. Proudly, our clients include Shell Oil, John Deere, Mr. Goodcents, Short Circuit Electronics, Brass Eagle Paintball, and many more. We'd love to hear from you - ideas, needs and questions. Look through the site and call if we can help you.

Teamwork:  Sense of purpose, solid goals, improved individual and group performance, increased productivity, increased creativity, increased sense of employee motivation and belonging.

Your goal is to analyze your current situation and desired goals for your new position. In other words, determine your plan for your first 100 days in the job.

Here's the process:

• Define the current “as is” environment of your new job and your vision for the “to be” environment as you will create it based on your ability.

• What are the key plans of action that you will employ to create the type of environment that will allow you to be objectively viewed as a good leader?

• Define in detail, your plans, actions and the milestone events that will fulfill your leadership vision through meeting defined goals and objectives.

• Define the leadership styles and the methods you will employ to create your leadership environment.

• What strengths, weaknesses, obstacles and threats will you most likely have to define, take advantage of or overcome? What strategies will you employ to understand, deal with and overcome the challenges you will face?

• What metrics have you created that will objectively measure the results of your first 100 days so that you and others can objectively review your success or failure?

• When the 100 days are complete, describe what your job (organization) looks like and how you will be monitoring as well as maintaining its progress to insure future success.
