ABOUT SLAPWhat. How. Most definitely why.
SLAP achieves maximum commitment in manager, employee and customer cultures.
We’re not talking about a bunch of managers, employees and customers. When these groups form relationships with a company they become cultures and are far more self-protective, far more intelligent and far more resistant to standard methods of corporate influence.
“Culture” is the most overused yet often least understood concept in business. SLAP’s renowned expertise is in understanding how these three cultures actually work and how to achieve their maximum commitment.
We don’t talk behavior to companies obsessed with results. Our work produces significant, sustained metrics impact.
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT
Our solutions are delivered as customized consulting services, including comprehensive process that can transform your company into a brand, establish thought leadership credibility and reveal the true state of your internal culture’s willingness to support performance strategies.
Although we are not a training company, we believe in the transfer of competency and provide management development sessions that will help your managers become emotionally committed to your company’s success, show how to gain dependable commitment to any current or future management plan, and allow you to deliver a brandable sales/customer experience.
Our founder/CEO Stan Slap regularly gives keynotes focused on maximizing commitment in manager, employee and customer cultures. His talks are based on the POV, processes and results that the SLAP company really achieves.
Stan is a New York Times bestselling author who has a three-book deal with Penguin for one each on maximizing commitment in manager, employee and customer cultures. The first two are available in hardcover, e-book and audio formats and he is at work on the third.
Deadly Serious. Totally Twisted.
Relax; it’s a chronological equation. The deadly serious always comes first—including hardcore processes and metrics impact—but our work has a certain undeniable … attitude. It’s delivered as a constant change-up pitch of provocative and profound, heartfelt and hysterical, relevant and irreverent. And it’s driven by a lot of passion for the jaw-dropping power and vital importance of humanity in the workplace.
THIS IS WHY WE DO IT
TO MAKE THE BUSINESS CASE FOR HUMANITY.
THIS IS WHO WE DO IT FOR
You’ve heard of our clients or you’re about to: They include many of the world’s most successful companies in IT, financial services, entertainment, apparel and manufacturing, as well as newer fast growing companies in many of these same industries. They have in common an obsession with quality, performance and purpose.
Our work is primarily with managers, from executive to entry level.
Every culture has its own language and music is part of it. If you grew up with rock and roll, as an example, it was the language of your culture. By expressing the exhilarations and terrors of first freedoms it defined the culture’s anxieties and desires. It declared the culture’s insistence on being respected for its uniqueness. It clarified who belongs to the culture and, just as importantly, who didn’t.
Managers may have their own culture but they don’t have their own music. They’re forced to listen to their parents’ old Stephen Covey records.
SLAP is rock and roll for managers.
We don’t mean this as some sort of rock star poseurs. We mean that we want our work with managers to be the ignition switch for the urgent need to change the world and for the energy to do it. We want to help managers celebrate their shared experience in all of its potential and potential weirdness. We want to stir your soul, race your heart and throb the foot used for acceleration. And we want you to find the fire down below, pump up the volume, take it to the streets, kick out the jams and tear the roof off the sucker.
Making your company successful? That can be interesting and profitable work and we’re going to help you do it better than you ever thought possible. But it’s time to move it. It’s time to make it righteous work.
