Axíes is the Greek word meaning values. We know from experience, and believe in our hearts, that all organizations and individuals operate on a foundation of their true values, defined by their consistent actions. The values you live shape who you are and serve to create the results you achieve – intended or otherwise.

VALUES VALUES

Your values do more than guide your behavior. Your values, whatever they might be, create an energy of connection. They serve as your antenna; continuously searching for and attracting other people whose values are aligned with yours. It happens at a subconscious level. Your job is to maintain a conscious state of awareness, so when the subconscious attraction brings someone or something into reach, you are able to recognize it and take advantage of it. It’s not magic; it’s just the way the universe works.

BALANCED ORGANIZATION

Axíes Group is built on Jason’s and Bill’s combined 60 years of experience, both as CEO’s and consultants. As consultants, they have advised companies ranging in size from Fortune 500’s to mid-size to start-ups. Their work encompasses strategic planning, values-driven leadership, understanding and aligning cultures with strategies and greater purpose, maintaining relevance in an ever-changing world, learning to transform dysfunction into high performing teams and organizations, helping leaders understand and create organic Balance. That organic Balance element served as the foundation for the unique Axíes Group Balanced Organization model and methodology. It adds a profoundly effective 3rd dimension of leading to the quantitative metrics of performance and raises the bar of personal and collective achievement to unimagined levels.

OUR METHODOLOGY

Our methodology will enable you to accurately put a “You Are Here” dot on your company’s current reality map. You’ll be able to compare your current reality to the structure and strengths of what we’ve identified as The Balanced Organization. Achieving that state of Balance will enable you to achieve goals and reach heights that are otherwise unattainable.

That “You Are Here” place provides us with the basis for rich dialog and strategic thinking. In addition to illuminating the gap between where you want to be, it will give you better clarity and focus that will, in turn, enable to use your time and allocate your resources most productively.

Next, we collaboratively (you and us) develop a custom game plan – designed just for you and your company – to address the elements that you deem most important, to focus on your priorities, and to achieve your goals. Our approach does not require an all-or-nothing endeavor. We provide the elements. You determine the scope.

As you unleash the principles and execute the elements, the magic happens. You and your organization are changed in ways you didn’t imagine.

Lets have a conversation

It begins with a conversation – between you and us. One of the attributes of great leaders is a constant curiosity – about many things. We think that this should be one of them. Let’s have that conversation.

OUR VALUES

Axíes Group

These are our values. They are our non-negotiable beliefs – the beliefs that drive our behavior with our clients, each other and everyone else with whom we interact. They represent what we hold ourselves accountable for living; and they are what you can expect and demand from us. If you don’t think we’re living them in our interactions with you – we want you to tell us. That’s the best way we can continuously strengthen our relationship with you.

Authenticity
We will always be the best version of the real us.
Adaptability:
We don’t get stuck in outmoded, counterproductive habits and traditions because they are comfortable. We relentlessly search for what’s needed to make our clients and ourselves relevant and valuable. The past does not divinely mandate the future. And relevance is the fountain of youth – for people and for organizations. We will stay forever young.
Integrity
We keep our commitments. And we do the right thing – it’s not always the easy thing, or the popular thing, or the politically correct thing. But we know that there is always a voice within us that knows the right thing. We listen to that voice. And we act on it.
Respect
We treat people like people. People are not objects to be manipulated, or looked down on. To disrespect others is to deny them their dignity. We won’t do that.
Trustworthiness
We believe that your trust is not a given. We must earn it – by our deeds, not by our words. So we don’t ask for your trust. We ask for the opportunity to earn it.
Delivering great brand experiences
Our Brand is a widely held set of beliefs and expectations about what we deliver and how we deliver it, validated by the experiences of everyone with whom we interact. Every interaction conveys an experience. Every experience is a Brand experience. We will always do everything in our power to make each one a great one.
Our greater purpose
We will always work to make the world a better place – one interaction at a time. For us, it’s the path to fulfillment and it’s the legacy most worth having.
