The Actionable Platform

The Actionable Platform.

Immediate Learning Application.
Sustained Learning Impact.
Measurable Behavior Change.

The Actionable approach is a deceptively simple three-stage process that happens on the job, around real issues in the working lives of participants. The platform relies on lightweight web-based technology that can be added by a consultant to any client program, where a shift in behavior is a desired outcome

Whether it’s leadership development, a change management program, or the organization-wide introduction of a core plank in the new strategic plan, it consists of three parts:

1) Conversation.

The starting point is always a conversation. Whether it’s a consultant’s own content or Actionable’s, these conversations are framed in the real-world context of each individual and focus on a single concept that becomes the catalyst for change.

2) Action.

Each conversation participant is invited to commit to one manageable change in their behavior as a result of the conversation. Focusing on one small improvement at a time makes it easier to embed that change. And having some help makes it even easier.

Over the course of the next 30 days, participants track and measure their progress towards real behavior change through a simple, mobile-friendly tool.

3) Insight.

Consultants and organizations have real time visibility into employee engagement and leader impact. Know who’s struggling, who’s thriving and who’s checked out of the team. Think how much more effective leadership conversations could be if you knew exactly who needed attention, and what to talk about.

Organizations can cross-reference participant behavior change with business activity and their own measures of business success. Actionable provides real-time insight into the organization’s people, teams, and networks, with the click of a button.

Why do so many initiatives fail* ?

Because so few programs focus on the behaviors that are needed for success.

Actionable fills the gap:

Provides team
conversation tools
so individuals can connect with context and rationale.

Drives individuals to choose
and complete behavior change commitments.

Nudges managers to help
those individuals make the behavior change stick.
