"Symbiont "- a
partner in a mutually beneficial relationship.
most of us would probably say that we eagerly seek to be successful in life. Whether it is in our personal or professional lives, we generally desire to achieve productive, rewarding and satisfying results.
Furthermore, many of us would likely admit that we would like to
be more successful than we currently are in at least one area of
our lives. Unfortunately, we sometimes fall short of our goals and wind up experiencing frustration
and disappointment rather than the positives outcomes we seek.
Achieving positive results in business or in life need not be a haphazard, hit or miss affair.
People and organizations generate their current outcomes as a result of their current daily performance
behaviors. Clearly then, if people or organizations desire more productive outcomes, they must change their personal or collective
daily activities in an appropriate, positive manner. As the saying goes, "If you keep doing what you're doing,
you're going to keep getting what you're getting." In a nutshell, the key to improving individual or organizational
results is to implement positive behavioral change. Fortunately, proven concepts and techniques exist which, if properly implemented,
can help individuals and organizations significantly improve the results they get. By incorporating these concepts and techniques
into effective developmental plans, people and organizations can dramatically enhance their success in attaining
the results they seek. see "success formula"

primary focus is on the following developmental areas:
• Performance Consulting
Training & Development
• Transformational Coaching
Performance consulting focuses on helping organizations
identify and overcome performance challenges that stand in the path of desired business results. Our approach at
Symbiont Performance Group is to help clients successfully identify the critical gaps that
exist between current and desired performance outcomes along with the reasons for those gaps, and to offer targeted solutions
to help close them. A key element of performance consulting is helping organizations improve productivity by strategically
linking the personal needs and aspirations of its individual workers to the attainment of desired organizational
results. Performance consulting is not simply about
improving workers’ knowledge and skills. Rather, it looks at the
entire range of organizational functions that impact individual worker performance.

Training & Development
Training and development encompasses a wide range
of disciplines centering on the development of people's knowledge, skills and attitudes in order to generate individual proficiency in current and future areas of responsibility. Training and
development focuses on the creation and implementation of comprehensive initiatives to provide workers with the essential
abilities to perform their work responsibilities. It encompasses elements dealing with needs analysis, competency
development, curriculum design, content delivery and learning assessment as well
as coaching, mentoring and experiential learning techniques. At Symbiont Performance Group we offer the capability to create
and deliver customized, cost-effective training programs designed to transform learning into measurable individual performance
improvement. We view learning not as an event, but rather, as a continuing process aligned
with organizational vision and directed towards attaining and exceeding business objectives. Our capabilities include
expertise and resources in both on-site and distance learning formats as well as instructor-led and learner-directed approaches.

Symbiont Performance Group business coaching services include working with
individuals and teams within small and medium size organizations to help them enhance and refine the effectiveness of key
functions and activities that are central to achieving desired business results. Business coaching differs from training in that it focuses on improving the effectiveness of existing
organizational roles and functions rather than on the creation and development of the basic foundational knowledge
and skills required in a specific area of expertise.
As with sports coaching, business coaching helps clients build on the business knowledge and skills that are already
in place by providing support and advice to elevate individual performance to higher levels that result in enhanced overall
organizational productivity. Business
coaching initiatives can be delivered in a number of formats including one-on-one interactions, team sessions and group workshops
and have been shown to be of significant benefit to individuals at all levels of an organization. Please visit more about Symbiont Business Coaching to learn about our current offerings in this area.
Transformational coaching is a powerful, highly-tuned process of interpersonal communication
and problem-solving. It begins by asking provocative questions that raise people’s goals and aspirations—questions
that focus on aspects such as current unintended results, ways an individual may be contributing to the unintended results
and ways to looks at things differently. It involves changing the way people think, thereby increasing
their ability to deal more effectively with clarifying ambiguity and helping them become more creative and reflective. Within
the Symbiont Performance Group coaching environment, clients learn ways to uncover their deepest
desires, identify their strengths and unmask the constraints that have previously held them back. They
are then in the position to create the "right actions" to achieve their life goals. In simplest terms, "right
action" is “doing what works.” Right Action exists when the right people are doing the right things
in the right way at the right time for the right reasons to achieve the right
results. more about Symbiont Transformational Coaching
Self-leadership pertains to a person’s willingness
and ability to take personal responsibility for developing his or her individual potential. The effectiveness
of people’s self-leadership attitudes and behaviors determines not only their own satisfaction and happiness in life,
but in large measure, also that of their families, the organizations they belong to, the communities they live in and potentially,
even the world. Although everyone has the potential to be an effective self-leader, a relatively small number of people
fully develop this ability in life. As result, most people never really experience the thrill of significant accomplishment
and the satisfaction of becoming the best they can be. The Symbiont
Performance Group Self-Leadership
program provides a simple vehicle for identifying one’s innermost life desires and an effective vehicle for dramatically
increasing one’s probability of achieving them. more about the rewards of Symbiont Self-leadership.
