Once around myRhythm
The myRhythm Group is a highly-focused team, with a systems approach to reaching strategic goals:
- Our experience in the C-suite makes us a trusted partner for solutions that guide strategy execution across the enterprise.
- Our deep experience in adult learning allows us to tightly integrate your training efforts, to be in lock-step support of strategy.
- Our structures and processes provide actionable, human performance feedback, for development that replaces the ‘hunch’ with data.
At myRhythm we’ve designed an ‘inside-out’ approach to developing new behaviors. Behaviors that can create—and sustain—new business results. We recognize the employee demand for personal connections, as part of their work life. We leverage this as social learning, to fuel deeper, on-the-job learning, that informs and enriches every team member.
It’s a fact that most new behaviors and intentions are shortly extinguished by stubborn cultures that refuse to change. That’s why developing behaviors that can sustain change, must also gently reshape culture into an environment that will support them. This is why the focus at myRhythm is to connect your strategy to the vital behaviors that deliver them, and sustain them, over the long-term.
Whatever the need or the project, in working with clients, the bottom line is always defined as measurable business results.
Jack Pierce, Managing Partner
As an accomplished entrepreneur of more than 40 years, Jack’s experience spans many disciplines, including: graphic design, architectural design, copywriting, photography, marketing, marketing communications, and computer software. Jack has also designed and created many online assessment tools, aimed primarily at identifying what people need to do to achieve their greater potential. All of this is grounded by his education in architectural and graphic design at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Anything that can be taken apart—and put back together better—will capture his systems-thinking attention.
Along with cutting edge elearning programs, Jack has designed and presented many, original instructor-led workshops, from sales training in medical devices, to customer service for companies as large as Sam’s Club.
Jack’s special talent has always been relationships: developing high-trust, high-output relationships with small groups of people.
Because most organizations underutilize and human talent and unknowingly hold back the human spirit, Jack’s focus has been on ways to actively realign culture, with a specific goal:
Make it possible for people to consistently act with courage, passion and commitment, in an environment where they choose to invest in a future with those around them.
The lack of these behaviors in most organizations is what Jack calls the human-business gap. He’s passionate about myRhythm because it’s designed to address these issues and erase the gap, as it works to execute business strategy.
We'd love to hear from you!
