Our Proven Track Record
My colleagues and I have provided consulting, coaching and/or guidance to more than 15,000 people, 200 leadership teams on 6 continents, at over 100 of the best-known companies in the world including:
It has been three months since the Team Alignment Meeting and we are making strides in these areas: 1) Communication – People are actively looking for ways to leverage each other’s strengths. 2) Productivity – We look for solutions and accountability rather than finger pointing. 3) Moving Forward – We are actively reaching out to one another to work on key business tasks rather than avoiding conflict. I look forward to working with Next Level Culture in the future and strongly encourage other companies with similar challenges to give them a call today.David E. Williams

Chief Rabble Rouser
Zemo thrives on breaking the rules. This has always been one of Zemo’s strengths–assisting leaders and their teams to identify the “rules” that have become success limitations, and replacing these in order to generate new beliefs, strategies and pathways to success. In two decades of service, Zemo has worked with people around the globe in a variety of industries, as well as non-profits and start-ups.
The way you get a productivity improvement of 500% - 1000% is by getting everyone rowing hard in the right direction.
You get the 5 that are scarcely rowing to step it up; you get the 2 that are rowing backwards to stop (if possible), turned around, and rowing hard the right way. And you keep the 3 top performers going.
The difference between low engagement and high engagement, poor alignment and excellent alignment, has been quantified. Over the course of 11 years, stock prices of companies with engaged and aligned workforces outperformed everyone else by a wide margin:
- Revenue is higher by 310.8%
- Workforce increases 683.3%
- Stock prices are 1117.6%
Zemo and Simon exuded enthusiasm and honesty, and had the courage to call out unproductive patterns amongst us (including our CEO) which forced us to practice the new skills. ‘Thank you’ is not nearly enough. This was truly a great experience and program. No fluff and stuff--just good old-fashion straight talk.VP Operations
Are you facing any of these situations?
Major Change Initiative
You wish to obtain broad ownership of a new direction (mission, purpose, or strategy) and there are differing views on how to plan or implement the change process.
Post Merger Integration
Your company has just acquired (or merged with) a company with different systems, processes, and culture. The merger team is composed of a variety of stakeholders from both heritage companies with sometimes divergent perspectives.
From Good To Great
You are a good team delivering solid results, curious about what it takes to be a great, high-performing team.
Large Capital Project
You are the project manager of a large capital project that will take more than 6 months to complete. True Alignment will be crucial for delivering on time and under-budget.
According to the Conference Board of New York, “Of Fortune 1000 Companies, the percent of profits generated by strategic alliances and other business collaborations has risen from less than 5% in 1985 to 25% in 2005.” Getting all critical issues on the table up front and aligning on a path forward with all stakeholders is crucial for the success of the venture.
Good Team Gone South
Somewhere along the way, relationships soured, and now it is affecting productivity.
If so, a Team Alignment and Culture Program might be exactly what you need.
Excellent tools and skill-sets provided. Will immediately impact my direct interactions with other members of the Executive Team.CIO
