Why Should I Partner with Shandel Group?

Alan Andersen

I love great questions. After all, the value of an answer is directly tied to the quality of the question. Unfortunately our society has forgotten this interdependent relationship. However, one of the best questions that I was asked recently was why a prospect organization should partner with Shandel Group and adopt our tools and techniques.

What an important question! And truth be told, this is a question that we ask internally on a regular basis. Seeking the answer to this question fuels our fire for continuing to hone in our unique value as a collaborative partner.

Why Shandel Group?

In short, we practice what we preach.

This should be the #1 factor you take into account with a prospect of any sorts. Considering if the person or group that you are going to partner actually follows their own recommendations. Unfortunately “drinking your own kool aid” is undervalued in the marketplace today. However, it is a chief reason Shandel Group is growing and overcame the two worst economic downturns in recent history.

Wait, why are you bringing up the 2001 and 2008 recessions? Primarily because the training and people-development budget is the first line item to disappear when money and time are tight. Gratefully we’re approaching our 2nd decade in the people-development business!

Does it matter that the collective Shandel Group team has a combined century of people-development experience under our belt? Or that Shandel Group has been strategic partners with organizations across the marketplace spectrum, from fortune 500 companies like Pitney Bowes to a startup technology business that we can’t share further information on. We even equip churches and nonprofits.

The reason that we have been successful is the same reason that you and your business will be successful. We share undeniable truth in kindness paired with a proven infrastructure that our entire team follows on the daily.

What are your Tools and Techniques?

First, let me share what a Shandel* is. It is the fastest way to gain altitude while changing directions. Cool, right!? Our CEO’s namesake is what we do with Organizations, Executives, Teams, Individuals, etc.

Naturally our tools need to be robust enough to pace your speed and direction. Paired with proven techniques that you and your people can use time and time again. (Not just when Shandel Group associates are onsite with you or coaching you over the phone!)

I’ll liken our tools and techniques to the constructing of America’s Roadway.

Think about this. “Why aren’t there more driving accidents?” Answer: In the late 1800’s Gen. Roy Stone spearheaded the implementation of an effective nationwide driving system for individual mobilization. The efficacy of this system doesn’t matter if you’re heading north or south, you are always on the right-hand side of the road with the same expectations. Most importantly, you essentially share the same vantage point as your driving peers. Regardless if you’re coming or going! Amazing.

In other words, we have fewer accidents because there is a great system in place no matter the quality of the drivers. This infrastructure minimizes incidents and maximizes likelihood of reaching desired outcomes.

Shandel Group tools and techniques are more like an infrastructure. Given your employees' varied background, differing experiences, and unique preferences for communicating and interacting, we equalize the playing field and align the team with a common road map.

Shandel Group Infrastructure

  1. We measure your team’s human sciences through our online assessment partner, Target Training Int'l. Looking at how you and your team behaves and what drives you.

  2. Building on step 1, we assess and develop infrastructure for cultivating team trust, increasing efficacy of communication and common trajectory.

  3. Finally, we integrate various tailored training modules for you and your team. These training modules will empower you to maintain sustained growth over the long-haul.

We want to help you take your leadership to the next level. When we partner with you, we are sharing proven development practices that will help you layout and follow your custom road map to success as you see it.

Pulling for you,

Alan Andersen
