El Cap has been working with Integrated Growth for the past year building our leadership brand, development curriculum, and individual development tools. These are essential for our future as we are a rapidly growing climbing, fitness, and yoga company with multiple locations across the country. We knew we needed to invest more in developing our future leaders and making sure our leadership brand was clearly defined for the entire organization and chose to partner with Gretchen and Integrated Growth . Feedback from the team has been incredibly positive. All feel that the content is fresh, new to them, unique to us and will enable us to become better leaders.
– Robert Cohen, CEO, El Cap
“Integrated Growth invested a lot of time interviewing people across the organization to get a baseline understanding of where the company was currently performing relative to its mission, vision, values, and goals. This enabled us to understand where our opportunities were and then develop tools to address those areas. I have enjoyed every encounter. The dialog, dynamic exchange of ideas, and the work product has been incredible.”
– Robert Cohen, CEO, El Cap
Is your organization experiencing change and transformation? Maybe you are transforming your mission, experiencing change of leadership, expanding your operations, undergoing M&A?

Unlike other consultancies that offer set programs and lay them on top of your organization, Integrated Growth endeavors to understand your specific needs and address them in ways that truly work! We get in there, roll up our sleeves, and get messy right there next to you. We open up Pandora’s box, explore the undercurrents and reveal the truths. Only when we do the real work that needs to be done, can your organization propel forward. We believe the knowledge and know-how exists within your team. We help you provide the tools and environment to allow it to shine.
There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all”

“Gretchen is a superb coach! She has a very holistic perspective and uses a variety of techniques to integrate mind, body and spirit. As I was moving from a challenging work situation, Gretchen easily coached, guided and supported me on every level. I reached every one of my career transition goals within two months of coaching with Gretchen. It is clear that Gretchen practices the techniques and strategies that she uses in her coaching. She is ‘authentic’. I’d highly recommend Gretchen.”

Team Excellence Model
G R I P
The critical ingredient of all high-performing teams is goal clarity. When you and your team are committed to clear, shared goals that are purpose driven and directly aligned with your mission and strategy the momentum and team bond is unstoppable.
An important factor in the development of your team is how each member contributes to the work. This includes roles and responsibilities based on what is needed by the team and the talent from each team member in order to pursue interdependent tasks.
Teams are communities. The way in which your team members interact with one another and work through conflict will have a major impact on the employees’ engagement, emotional well-being, and overall effectiveness.
This is the means by which the team gets their work done, solves problems, shares information and makes decisions. Truly effective processes and business systems make the job easier and provide for greater effectiveness and efficiencies.
We have seen how unclear Goals can lead to flailing and lost time. Unclear Roles can cause conflict and frustration. Poor Interactions can take the whole team down. And ineffective Processes can cause complete breakdown.
Whether your team is just coming together for a special mission or has been working together for quite some time, Integrated Growth partners with you to transform your work group into a truly powerful team.
