Organizations can face internal conflicts and a decline in work culture due to various factors such as miscommunication, differing goals, or conflicting personalities among employees. These issues can lead to decreased productivity and employee satisfaction. Internal partnering, however, can be beneficial in addressing these challenges. By fostering collaboration and teamwork, Strategic Action Planning encourages open communication, shared goals, and a sense of unity among team members. This can ultimately improve work culture, resolve conflicts, and enhance overall organizational effectiveness.

Everything DiSC® is a personal and professional development learning experience. It starts with an assessment that measures your preferences and tendencies using DiSC® - a simple yet powerful model that describes four basic behavioral styles: D, i, S, and C.

Professional Development and Self Awareness are both essential to keep leadership and teams relevant, effective, and fresh.  Everything DiSC gives people a quick and intuitive way to understand themselves and others. Everyone is a blend of all four DiSC styles—usually, one, two, or even three styles stand out. Each person has a unique behavioral profile with different styles and priorities. At McFadden, we believe that these differences in style can be extremely valuable. Once you assess these differences and harness their value, better workplace communication AND healthier organizations become possible, leading to greater productivity. 

How can DiSC® support your team?

DiSC® is a personal assessment tool used by more than one million people every year to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity in the workplace. At McFadden Partnering, we use these profiles as tools to ignite cultural change, coach and train leaders, and facilitate team discussions and action planning.

Myers-Briggs Coaching & Training

Many frustrating workplace issues come up because people simply approach the same thing differently - what seems to make sense to one person is baffling to another.  It is easy to see these differences in approach, communication, problem solving and planning as a nuisance.  However, the differences can actually give teams huge leverage if they understand how to utilize the unique strengths of each team member.  It requires an openness and being willing to look at the team dynamic, including your own contribution, differently. 


The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment can help teams understand the differences and in turn leverage them instead of focusing on the negative aspects of them. The MBTI® is one of the world’s most popular personality tools—because it works. It provides common language for understanding and valuing individual differences. With practical insight that’s easy to understand,  the MBTI assessment has helped thousands of organizations and millions of people around the world improve how they communicate, learn, and work. 


At McFadden, we offer this tool as one piece of the puzzle when working with teams and leaders in our coaching, training, and facilitated programs.   

Strategic Action Planning

One of the biggest reasons teams struggle is that they are not aligned.  People are working hard, but often working at cross purposes - this creates frustration and even burn out. Everyone is doing their best, but they are seeing things through the lens of their own role, and not necessarily the organization or team's vision.  


Strategic Action Planning is highly effective for gaining team alignment and focus.  This program also surfaces the obstacles that are getting in the way of team effectiveness, in a safe, non-threatening forum.  Team members and leaders can talk about what they need to be effective in their role, and can clarify expectations for greater cohesion and effectiveness.  This makes the work environment more harmonious, stress is reduced, and everyone is more productive.  


Action Plan



There is an up front assessment via interviews, questionnaires or some combination.  This helps ensure that team discussions are targeted, relevant and high impact.  There is typically a kick off workshop with open discussion, clear goals, and specific action steps.  Then follow up assessments and discussions to measure progress, stay on track and ensure there is follow through; there is also an opportunity to adapt as we go so new or refined action plans can be built.


Involving the team to take ownership of success is vital for a thriving culture and a successful outcomes.  Teams can achieve amazing things together when there is transparency, understanding, collaboration toward common goals, and shared commitment to serving the customer. 


This program is effective for singular discipline teams, cross-discipline teams, the exec level for smaller firms, and for JV's that need to meld quickly and efficiently.

See the
Big Picture

Whether you're facing down strategic or operational challenges, you'll have action and follow-up plans to finally make progress.

Make Impactful Progress

Improve Company


Ensure positive behaviors are being modeled from the top down and show employees you care about their day-to-day.


Problem Solving for the

Real World

Problems come in all shapes and sizes:

● Conflicts that go unresolved

● Competing priorities and poor decisions

● Decision making without foresight

● Miscommunications and wasted time

● Chaos, reactiveness, and overwork


All of these leave leaders and teams frustrated and unable to use their full talents. But when you’re mired in a challenge it can be hard to identify just what’s not working. You need an outside perspective that can take the entire system into account—looking out for both the people and the bottom line.
