Together, Ulrich and TAI Advisors worked on discovering the meaning and motivation each leader brought to their work, the values and aspirations that aligned them. Revealing shared purpose opened new avenues for connection and co-creation.

Significantly more positive evaluations of senior leaders affirmed that Ulrich had his team back on the right track. They were mobilizing their employees and gaining traction.
“Leaders focused their energy on problems, not on comparison or competition with each other. As the team moved out of fear and into creativity, their people experienced a new clarity and stepped into their work with renewed vigor and purpose.”
