Our Approach

“We assemble the right team of experts to work in partnership with you on your unique business challenge and we don’t quit until you’ve achieved the results you engaged us to accomplish.”

"We guarantee that you will achieve the results we set out together to achieve. As long as your team delivers on it's commitments, we will continue working with you at no extra charge, until you're satisfied that together we have been successful."

                                                                                  Chris T. Holland, President

We offer four engagement models

  1. Partner with you to create focus, build vital business solutions, and make your leaders successful
  2. Manage under your direction critical projects from beginning to end
  3. Facilitate must-be-successful planning, work-sessions, events, and issue-confrontation meetings 
  4. Provide expert advice on specific areas and/or specific leaders needing coaching 

We focus these engagements at the appropriate levels of your organization

  • Senior Management Team and Board of Directors meetings and off-sights
  • Mid-level leadership
  • Valued individual business and clinical leaders
  • Critical cross-functional and departmental teams
  • ​Key alliance planning and work sessions 
  • Organization-wide employee sessions​

What makes The Holland Consulting Group unique? 

​We go beyond just fixing the immediate problem. We ensure that the results fit together with the multiple initiatives you have in place. We're not happy unless the changes we help you make contribute to the long term success of the enterprise.

“It takes more than expertise. I have spent my career responding to client requests to evaluate flaws in products or technology, only to find after thorough examination of their situation, that an organizational or political barrier was hindering their success.”
                                                           Harvard PhD Mechanical Engineer and Product Expert

“Why would we hire Bain or McKinsey to work on our strategy when we can get more seasoned consultants at half the price?"

It's about your goals not our offerings

Most consulting groups provide a narrowly focused approach for solving a business problem. Leadership development firms see the answer in training or coaching, Management Consulting firms present strategic plans, Engineering firms make technical recommendations, and so on. Each approach presumes that your problem needs their fix, leaving you to deal with any other factors.

The Holland Consulting Group, by contrast, begins with your business objectives rather than with a presupposed solution. We assess your capabilities and create, in partnership with you, the right team of experts and the best approach for realizing your unique business objectives. 

At the same time we work side-by-side with your people, from beginning to end transferring our capabilities to them. We want to leave you stronger to meet the demands of the future. We consider all of what it takes to create the change you want, considering four capabilities needed for the success of your strategy, major initiative, or specific objective. 

Four Vital Leadership Capabilities

Leaders mastering four capabilities in sync will achieve dramatic results in which everyone can take pride.

  1. Business Savvy
  2. Interpersonal Effectiveness / Influence
  3. Functional / Professional Expertise
  4. Systems Perspective in Action

Deficiency in one of these four areas can throw off the rhythm of results focused collaboration. A leader possessing only one or two of these capabilities may contribute vital recommendations, information, or tasks. 

But missing more than one, he or she will not be able to ...

  • Engage influential players in systemic analysis and decision-making
  • Form collaborative solutions to complex challenges
  • Manage collaborative action towards achieving macro goals
  • Achieve unexpected results in which everyone can take pride

Without them, he or she will always need a facilitative partner to successfully engage in high level deliberations and will never be able to guide them. 

We bring these four capabilities to the table and can help you ...

  • Develop business-savvy, facilitative leaders
  • Guide systems focused, results driven, collaborative team initiatives
  • Make "Lean" improvement efforts produce business results
  • Coach valuable but disruptive leaders recoup their collaborative value
  • Develop a systems perspective for greater team effectiveness
  • Create performance metrics that everyone gets and uses to guide work 
  • Guide an assessment and planning process for achieving outstanding leadership performance
