Leadership and Innovation

To whom it may concern:

Our organization is a national legal advocacy group that assists disabled individuals with

matters related to Social Security and/or Medicare.  We have attorneys in 35 states, clients

nationwide and have conducted business since the mid 1990s.

We hired 6 Innovations, owned by A.Lynn Scoresby and Associates, with the goal of creating

better unity among the executive team and to provide training to our roughly 25 managers. Our

business situation required a greater emphasis on efficiency and because of cultural and

leadership challenges we believed we needed an outside consulting group to help us.

Nearly three years later, I can report that we got much more than anticipated and are

exceptionally pleased with our results.  With the assistance and guidance of their trainers, we

learned 6innovation’s basic leadership model which provides a set of fundamental leadership

principles which are designed to enable companies to identify their greatest needs and adapt it

to create the type of culture to achieve them. Their stated objective of finding and developing

new leaders and spreading positive leadership throughout our organization has clearly taken

place. This system of leadership is combined with a set of tools for innovation and under the

direction of 6innovations coaching we taught this model to our executives and to over five

hundred employees. I can say that it created an environment and a sense of leadership that

motivated literally hundreds of changes that resulted in increased organizational effectiveness

and profitability.

 

We raised the bar for our managers on what it means to be an effective leader. Our managers

now expect to take those they manage to places of productivity they have never achieved and

they do this without prodding from upper management.  As I mentioned, their leadership model

and their coaching enabled us to create a climate that fosters the sharing of ideas and of taking

calculated risks.  We markedly increased employee moral and reduced turnover.  We

significantly improved communication between departments with the goal that everyone needs

to know what everyone else knows. 

 

Our departments are now interconnected and very collaborative. Our managers have a sense

of shared responsibility for company success.  Before our work with 6 Innovations, managers

were largely isolated and focused primarily on the goals of their department.  Whereas now, our

managers all understand how their roles relate to other departments and they effectively

collaborate to achieve the best outcome.  We better coalesce as an executive team and are

better managers and communicators.  And perhaps best of all, we enjoy much better

relationships and experience higher levels of job satisfaction. 

 

Bottom line is that our partnership with 6innovations generated incredible results. Last year we

increased net profits by 71% over the previous year and did so during a historically difficult

climate for our practice area.  We succeeded while a number of our competitors either closed

their doors or experienced lower margins.  In addition, the process of innovation we learned

inspired us to review new options. As a result we started new businesses related to our

practice.  One of these businesses is a marketing company that leverages our monthly

marketing spend into new revenue producing verticals.  Last year this company alone grew to

roughly 20 employees with sales of more than seven figures. 

In short I can recommend 6 innovations and their model of consulting and training without

reservation.
