I. GEODESIC THEOREM™

III. GEODESIC TEAM DEVELOPMENT™ MODULES

  • I. GEODESIC THEOREM
  • Based on the principle of triangular strength in engineering and architecture, the Geodesic Theorem™ embodies the importance of the Power of Three in human relations and corporate team-building…For example, in the basic triad comprised of “you, me and us,” or in the expanded triad comprised of “individual, team and enterprise,” the strength of the relationships is enhanced when the three parts are connected and aligned; it is weakened or destroyed when even one of the connecting links is misaligned or broken… It is through the three-part prism of geodesic awareness that we are able to find stronger and more inclusive interpersonal connections. Find out how the Power of Three can help you achieve the kind of communication you want for your IT team.

  • II. GEODESIC EXECUTIVE COACHING
  • Geodesic Executive Coaching™…offers unique and individualized one-on-one coaching for top-level executives and technical personnel. Our approach draws upon the Geodesic concept of triangular networking, connectivity, and harnesses the Power of Three…Our innovative form of Executive Coaching addresses interpersonal issues of importance to the CIO, develops practical approaches to Leadership Development, and resolves communication problems…There are two programs for Customized Executive Coaching:

    • Behavioral Turn-around Coaching for Difficult People
      – i.e., “Elephants in the Room,” and B2B Mediation (internal & external)

    “The people Meredith Gardner works with are often highly creative, sometimes even brilliant. And annoying. Difficult to work with. Lacking in interpersonal skills. Difficult to supervise and hell on their subordinates….What makes Meredith Gardner unusual is that she works with these people…to help them become less obnoxious, irritating or just insensitive.”9

    • Leadership Coaching for High-Potentials

    Enhancement programs are designed for people who have high-functioning leadership ability and need to improve their already evident capabilities… Leadership Coaching for High-Potentials is important because they are the ones who become our Future Leaders.

    With many years of effective coaching experience, Dr. Gardner handles each Executive Coaching assignment in a careful, thorough, and strictly confidential manner.
