What we do

Integritas Consulting Group works with small business, non-profits, government agencies, medium and large organizations.  And soon, we will be one of the first consulting firms working with well established organizations that wish to thrive in a driverless car society.

We have unique and extraordinary methodologies and approaches to training and development, that in partnership with you as a sponsor, transforms organizations into environments that produce extraordinary results independent of the current economic environment.

When you and your colleagues dwell in and practice our methodologies, they will new eyes to see the world with…they will produce business metrics beyond the norm. People show up more accountable, reliable, happier, better related to each other, able to handle challenging workloads with increased focus and energy. They are more productive, efficient, trusting, collaborative and self-generating.   They work in a healthy organization.

We relate to you and your colleagues as natural leaders that have barriers to being effective in exercising that leadership.  Our job is to shine the light on those barriers so that your colleagues can see them, own them, be responsible for them.  As they do this, the grip it once held eases.  They have choice to act and forward what’s important to them, their team goals, and organizational objectives…to work on what matters and what is important to their future and the company’s.

We also look at our client’s challenges as symptoms of the fundamental cultural cause and go to work on dissolving the systemic issues that hold things in place rather than merely putting band-aids on existing problems.

Our customized engagements are designed to not only solve the immediate problems but to bring health and balance to the system where clients are empowered and able to translate what they learn into ongoing contribution and competitive advantage.

Our Bold Stand

Our methodology of Organizational Transformation is awesomely effective.

We partner with you in successfully delivering individual, group, team and company goals and objectives.

We are experts in what it takes to produce breakthroughs.

We offer companies methods and practices to transform their enterprises. We provide the thinking and tools to produce outcomes and results they want and wish to sustain over time. Not only do we deliver great, valuable tips and techniques, we create the environment for each person to discover for themselves, what it will take to transform their relationships and see work challenges with new eyes.

People find themselves happier and less overwhelmed at work. They experience being more productive and efficient. They are self-generating, trusting and collaborative. They work to produce results beyond what was expected. Our design sessions establish collaboration and teamwork with clarity of vision and purpose. Effective and efficient project design and plans are effectively implemented. All this results in bottom-line profit to the company.

We train you in accessing the source of authentic leadership, effective action and offer templates for mastering organizational design. We provide the keys to empowering teamwork and leveraging diversity while providing communication tools to be able to transfer what is seen as possible into inspiring action.

Transcendent engagements allows us to distinguish ourselves in the consulting market as we look at our clients problems as symptoms of the fundamental cause and go to work on resolving the systemic issues rather than merely putting band-aids on their existing problems. Systemic failures and lack of authentic leadership are at the core of on-going and repeating business problems.

Dealing with merely solving the current problems often creates the next set of problems to be dealt with. This keeps our competitors busy making money from clients by perpetuating their problems. We feel this approach lacks integrity, which we hold as a high value. We are committed to not only resolving the systemic issues but leaving our clients empowered to self-generate on-going sustainable solutions to their business challenges.

We analyze and diagnose the problems in the context of systemic cause and provide our services in customized engagements which not only solve the immediate problems but bring health to the system, thus eliminating repeating problems.

We agree with John Foster Dulles, when he said: “The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it’s the same problem you had last year.”

We equip our clients with the tools to become aware of the mindsets and thinking that limit creativity, innovation, and effective action. They then begin to invent new thinking and new approaches to their work that are appropriate to their commitments, goals and objectives. Returning to the workplace, these new practices consist of altered frameworks for communication, and a new view of what is possible in terms of work relationships and producing the actions necessary for new results.

Our work comes from the understanding that people at work are whole and complete yet have barriers to experiencing it. Once they uncover those barriers there is a natural tendency to improve, grow and develop.

Our business competencies include over 40 years of experience working with businesses from strategic design, sales, and management skills for small and mid-size companies to large change efforts. Our transformational powerhouse of intellectual property and methodologies allows companies to develop a strategic edge against the competition. We are after results not just good environments!

Our methodology scares the heck out of disagreement, resignation, and dysfunctional/ adversarial relationships….what shows up is power, workability, efficiency, productivity and effectiveness.

What Makes Us Unique and Different than other Consulting Companies

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”   ―   Marcel Proust

There are many things you know to do to have results you want. However, even having knowledge of what to do, does not guarantee you or others will do them.

Understanding information as information does not guarantee effective action.   Most “how to” books leave you with little, if any, access to extraordinary action.  For example, there are many, many books on what makes a great leader or how to be a great leader. This tells me that no one knows anything about Leadership.  There ought to be a couple of books that define what is missing, what needs to be provided or changed and then the execution.  Not the case…  There are great and colorful descriptions of what is being addressed, but that does not give you access to acting as an effective leader.

What will make the difference to giving you access?

Finding out for yourself. That is to discover, discovering.  We are experts in our ability to communicate our work in a way that you can discover it for yourself.

Applying this to organizational concerns you see a similar parallel.   Over 70% of corporate change efforts fail or never get off the ground.**

We have developed methods of working and partnering with clients that focuses on their discovering for themselves, what they need to know and the way in which they need to know those things, that matters.  This results in new and effective action.

Come discover our work for yourself.  Even as a successful company, bring us a concern, commitment or objective that is not working for you, or has never been resolved.  We will discuss how our methods produce immediate results now.

We deliver transformative learning programs:

Drawing on the ideas in, and using certain words and phrases from, “Learning As Transformation” by Jack Mezirow and Associates (2000, chs. 1-3):

Informative learning and transformative learning are both valuable and appropriate. However, transformative learning occurs in a different dimension than informative learning.

  • Informative learning endeavors to increase the sum of what we know, to add to our available skills, to extend our already established cognitive capacities. Informative learning seeks to bring valuable new content to add to or fill in what our prevailing worldview and our pre-existing frames of reference already allow. In summary, informative learning adds ideas and capacities that are compatible with our prevailing worldview and our pre-existing frames of reference.
  • Transformative learning on the other hand provides us with the opportunity to become aware of the interpretations and beliefs we hold as “the way it is”. That is, to critically reflect on the underlying network of ideas, beliefs, biases, social and cultural embedded-ness, and taken-for-granted assumptions that constitute our worldview (model of reality) about the world, others, and ourselves, and our frame of reference (mindset) relative to this subject or that subject.

We rarely ever even consider the fact that we have a worldview and frames of reference. This leaves us ignorant of the impact of the constraining and shaping imposed by our worldview and frames of reference on our perceptions and consequently on our actions. We never know what we don’t see at all, and with what we do see, what of it is actually distorted.

Rather than simply adding to what is currently allowed (compatible with) our prevailing worldview and pre-existing frames of reference, we explore our worldview and frames of reference themselves – their genealogy, internal logic, and uses – as well as assess the costs and benefits, and advantages and disadvantages, associated with our particular worldview and frames of reference.

Transformative learning does not merely add to or correct your store of information. Using transformative learning offers the opportunity to discover and eliminate the constraints and shaping imposed by your worldview and your frames of reference relative to who you are for yourself, and relative to your effectiveness in groups, teams or organizational concerns.*

“The flame of conception seems to flare and go out, leaving a man shaken, and at once happy and afraid. Charles Darwin said his Origin Of the Species flashed complete in one second, and he spent the rest of his life backing it up: and the theory of relativity occurred to Einstein in the time it takes to clap your hands.  This is the greatest mystery of the human mind – the inductive leap. Everything falls into place, irrelevancies relate, dissonances become harmony and nonsense wears a crown of meaning. But the clarifying leaps springs from the rich soil of the confusion and the leaper is not unfamiliar with pain.” — John Steinbeck, Sweet Thursday

* Taken from a program description of the “Being A Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership Program” offered by the Erhard-Jensen Initiative

Working with Federal, State and City Governments

Integritas Consulting Group, Inc.   has extensive experience working with different government agencies.   We have offered Alignment by Design, Mission Control Productivity Workshop, Executive Coaching, Integrity:The Ground on Which Leadership Stands and our Being a Leader program, plus other customize designed programs to various government agencies.  Our work is unique:  Why?

We offer transformative learning programs and consulting as distinct from Informative learning that almost all training and consulting companies focus on.  Informative learning and transformative learning are both valuable and appropriate. However, transformative learning occurs in a different dimension than informative learning. Informative learning endeavors to increase the sum of what we know, to add to our available skills, to extend our already established cognitive capacities  Transformative learning on the other hand provides us with the opportunity to become aware of the interpretations and beliefs we hold as “the way it is”. That is, to critically reflect on the underlying network of ideas, beliefs, biases, social and cultural embedded-ness, and taken-for-granted assumptions that constitute our worldview (model of reality) about the world, others, and ourselves, and our frame of reference (mindset) relative to this subject or that subject.  Transformative learning does not merely add to or correct your store of information. Using transformative learning offers the opportunity to discover and eliminate the constraints and shaping imposed by your worldview and your frames of reference relative to who you are for yourself, and relative to your effectiveness in groups, teams or organizational concerns.

Breakthroughs are possible  using this approach.  It is unique and difference making.   Such agencies as the FAA,  Department of Education, HHS, USDA – Forest Service have experienced the difference this approach offers.  We welcome an opportunity to discuss this with your agency.

Our Clients Say

“As both a participant and a company internal sponsor of Integritas’s consulting services, I feel uniquely qualified to comment on the tremendous success realized out of the programs for both the company I served and myself as a participant. There have been many times in the past few years were I was able to draw on the generative lessons and tools that were shared in their programs. The return you can expect from an investment in their programs will far exceed your expectations.”

GARY W. BANBURY • EXECUTIVE VP, CAO, ALLIED NEVADA GOLD CORP

“This past year, I had the pleasure and good fortune to attend the Mission Control Productivity and Accomplishment workshop presented by Barry Berman, President, Integritas Consulting Group, Inc. The workshop provided my Management Team and me with valuable insights into how we could plan and organize our hectic schedules and challenging workloads more efficiently and effectively. As a result, I believe my team and I are feeling that we are more productive, on top of things, and less stressed. Subsequent to the workshop, I also have benefitted greatly from several follow-up executive coaching sessions with Barry. He has helped me to understand that by taking a stand, my team and I can create the future we want to live in to, rather than just defaulting to a repetition of the past.”

DAN BLANKENSHIP • CEO, ROARING FORK TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY

“Barry, I am at a loss for words to describe the experience over the last two days… You have exceeded my expectations and surpassed what I thought could be covered/done with the Phoenix office… You were able to drill down and to find the root cause of our issues and provide a mechanism(s) to deal with them… At times the experience was uncomfortable, but from it I see understanding and growth….”

TIM M. • PROGRAM MANAGER, FAA

“I have been using Mission Control for years now. I re-took the course with Barry recently, and I have to say, I got more improvements in productivity and sanity than ever before. Day to day I still have a very full plate. But when I reflect, I am doing the most important things, I am doing them with less struggle, and with my full attention. I have minimized those things that eat up time and energy, and no one is complaining – my boss, my family, my friends and my health all seem to be balanced.”

KELLIE T. • MPA, DENVER PUBLIC HEALTH

“I have attended many workshops, seminars, retreats designed to initiate a shift in the way I relate to the world that provided inspiration and short-lived bursts of motivation. Mission Control leaves lasting impressions emboldened by practical tools that have revolutionized the way I work and relate to my career. I was beginning to think I had ADHD and was contemplating professional help for this “condition”. Turns out I was simply suffering from an overload of tasks without sufficient structures in place to filter the information. Mission Control — coupled with Barry’s compassionate style — provides the structures AND the necessary dialogue to address the truth of my ineffective work habits. THANK YOU!”

ADRIENNE • PROGRAM MANAGER, MILE HIGH BUSINESS ALLIANCE

“I spent last Friday taking care of over 1500 emails in my Inbox and Sent To Folders. It wasn’t until late Friday that I had my “Oh My Moment”. I have not been able to get my email cleaned up for years. I now know I was using my Inbox as a capture/organizer tool that was driving a lot of stress in my daily routine simply because of the overpowering number of emails I was trying to prioritize and move forward. Mission Control has provided that tool for helping me to get it done. The stress is gone and now I really feel in control for the first time.”

EDDIE A. • MINING COMPANY MANAGER, BP

“You class was wonderful! I’m much more focused. Regarding the organization, I see how this will impact our effectiveness. The practices and new work habits will well be worth the effort.”

HOWARD H. • CEO, PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY

“I LOVE the Mission Control Productivity Workshop offered through Integritas Consulting. In my professional opinion, this course is a MUST for anyone that is looking to get a handle on the volume of things there are to manage, handle, and otherwise balance in this day and age. Do yourself a favor and put this scheduling and training at the top of your priority list.”

ANNEMARIE MILISEN • BSHN, CHC, OWNER, LEAD CONSULTANT, BEACON FOR BALANCE

“The exercises during the course are tremendous in creating space in life — and remarkable for how quickly that occurred. The tools I got out of the course are giving me ongoing access to produce expanded results in my business and my development of my capacities to deliver a 3 1/2 month educational course. Thank your for making the course available – it has proven to be 2 of the best days I’ve invested in my business (and life) this year.”

JOHN BUCHANAN • CEO, ARCHITECTURE FIRM

“You class was wonderful! I’m much more focused. Regarding the organization, I see that I will take some time, but I know I will be worth the effort.”

JOSHUA HIRSH • TEACHER, AURORA PUBLIC SCHOOLS

“The freedom to say no, and the peace of mind of knowing that I don’t have to keep track of everything that comes my way. If I capture it, then I keep track of it. Otherwise, I release it from my brain and never worry about it again. EXTREMELY freeing! Plus, I can see more clearly the habits that I have and can correct myself faster. That’s been very powerful too!”

MARTHA RUNNETTE • PROJECT LEADER, DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS

“I did want to mention the training we received was and is valuable.  We still leverage the best practices.”

GARY REPLOGLE • SENIOR MANAGER, BROCADE
