Actionable Conversations allow us to assist executives, managers, teams and professionals to drive real change on an individual, team and organizational level with measurable behavior change and leader impact.
Fancy action plans don’t create engagement; ongoing two-way dialogue creates engagement.
What are Actionable Conversations?
Actionable Conversations are built on a simple yet powerful platform that dramatically improve workplace effectiveness through better relationships and shifted behavior.
Actionable Conversations is a metrics-driven platform to address the learning challenges your organization faces.
The process involves team conversations, individually-relevant actions, peer accountability and real-time, applicable business insights.
Founder, Chris Taylor, shares his insights in this short video

The Value of Employee Engagement
Have you ever wondered why some people are able to lead change with less resistance? What tricks do they use to achieve significant results?
The level of interaction between a manager and their team, or between departments has been shown to have a significant impact on team dynamics, productivity, employee engagement, and employee turnover to name a few. In fact, any key metric you want to improve is directly connected to employee engagement.
According to a June 2016 poll by Gallop, 50.7% of employees are “not engaged” and 16.7% were “actively disengaged.” This leaves only 32.6% “actively engaged.”
According to Gallop, when Managers focus on… Employees Disengaged
No Interaction 40%
Employee Weaknesses 22%
Employee Strengths 1%
“Gallup’s extensive research shows that employee engagement is strongly connected to business outcomes essential to an organization’s financial success, such as productivity, profitability and customer engagement. Engaged employees drive the innovation, growth and revenue that their companies need.” (ref: Gallop – U.S. Employee Engagement Steady in June)
My blog post of June 2016 also looks at the value you can gain when you engage in conversations.
Training with a Positive, Multi-faceted Business Impact
Actionable Conversations offer organizations, teams and each individual employee with tools which will help them better work through an already acknowledged pain. The resources and tools are not only affordable and easily integrated into your workplace they are relevant to your goals and business needs.
Better yet, you will be supported and coached by Ignite Leadership to maximize the ease of implementation and long-term results.
A recent survey of HR executives revealed that most organizations have the resources to address the learning needs of less than 15% of the people they employ.
Whatever challenge you are facing, identifying the right solution that drives measurable change can be difficult. Most measurements related to employee engagement and change management are lagging metrics. Actionable Conversations are aligned with leading metrics you can monitor as change happens.

Extend Training and Improve Integration of Key Concepts
Have you wondered why employees are unable to integrate the knowledge learned at training events into their worklife? Actionable’s Commitment Engine allows us to change that! When we attach the Action Engine to your training program, we are able to help employees create new habits that drive change. Our approach combines your training program with the Action engine and monthly conversations to boost the “stickiness” of key concepts. You can measure the impact of your training in real time with our detailed activity reports. Contact us to explore how we can improve the effectiveness of your training efforts.
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.
