What We Do
Sensei is an award-winning global consultancy that helps organizations worldwide to deliver strategically significant results by improving HUMAN PERFORMANCE and by optimizing the value of team and leadership interactions.
Our innovative and unique HUMAN PERFORMANCE INDEX™ enables leaders to measure human performance. We focus on areas where our clients can raise the bar on performance, productivity, and profit, ensuring that any work we do has a clear line of sight to specific business aims. This means that a solid return on time, energy, and investment is realized.
Our clients recognize us as experts in the process of unlocking potential and focusing this in the right ways to achieve the right outcomes, by emotionally engaging leaders and leadership teams to own the change, take accountability for it and deliver it.
What makes our work unique is the ability to blend our hard-edged business performance experience with the softer people development and engagement skills needed to create sustainable performance improvement.
In short ... ‘We do the really hard part of the soft stuff’
How We Can Help
Our clients seek us out because we provide what the best organizations realize is crucial: building a bridge between their strategic business results (the most critical outcomes) and the actions, interactions, capabilities, and behavior of teams and leaders at all levels (our most unique assets and the inputs to performance we can most influence).
We partner with clients to help them identify, commit to and progress towards the most critical bull's eyes that will help them succeed even in volatile times, by particularly leveraging their leadership, team, and human capabilities. Our clients engage in powerful yet mutually supportive "radical action conversations" that are precursors to dramatic performance improvement. They grow both results and relationships, creating a sustainable advantage.
