ADVISA: Better Leaders Drive Better Business Outcomes

Heather Haas, President, ADVISAHeather Haas, President
Today, the workforce ecosystem is witnessing a mass exodus of baby boomers without the talent present to replace them. As a result, organizations are facing a real talent and leadership shortage, which is hindering the performance of their workforces and the achievement of their organizational goals. In fact, without effective leadership, companies are struggling to retain key talent and create magnetic corporate cultures that attract the best and brightest. More recently, the lack of effective leadership development is manifesting in leaders who are ill-equipped for rekindling productivity, trust, and teamwork post-Covid.

Addressing these challenges with its comprehensive advisory services and ability to use data-driven insights to drive change is Indiana-based ADVISA. The company designs custom leadership development journeys for businesses that want to scale their culture for the future and invest in nurturing the next generation of leaders. “Leadership development is the fastest and most sustainable path to organizational change. We help our clients build a bench of leaders who know how to create inclusive, high performance work cultures that are aligned with their strategic aims,” says Heather Haas, president at ADVISA.

The company’s mission is to guide its clients in putting people at the center of strategy and results. ADVISA’s approach to every client engagement is data-driven. “We collect behavioral, emotional intelligence, and employee engagement data to create powerful insights about people and teams that drive action and create a measurable pathway to improvement. Leadership development programs are designed and implemented with business outcomes in mind. Individual data showcase how employees are motivated and team data highlight team strengths and blind spots and whether people are aligned with the business goals they are expected to achieve,” explains Heather.

Effective leaders are ‘culture carriers.’ They activate the core values of the organization through their communication, coaching and presence. They create clarity about goals and roles and help people embrace differences to unleash creativity and collaboration.

ADVISA is also an Elite Certified Partner of The Predictive Index® talent optimization software which enables companies to hire more effectively, develop high performing teams, inspire commitment and diagnose organizational dysfunction over time. “Our Predictive Index clients are passionate about talent optimization – getting people in roles where they can leverage their strengths and equipping teams with insights to reduce conflict and improve collaboration,” adds Heather. Above all, ADVISA partners with its clients to leverage the software to drive individual, team and organizational growth. ADVISA’s team of client success and leadership development experts provides training, just-in-time support and implementation resources to achieve real ROI.

With such strong core competencies, ADVISA has ignited several success stories since its inception in 1986. In one instance, the company worked with a prominent home builder in the Midwest on three different levels of leadership development programming. ADVISA’s leadership program not only helped them scale their work culture but also allowed them to grow and effectively navigate the challenges that come from growth through acquisition. In another instance, ADVISA helped several tech startups implement smart hiring strategies to reduce risk and drive growth with fewer people challenges.

Moving forward, ADVISA aims to expand its portfolio to help businesses safely transition to hybrid operations as the business ecosystem slowly reopens after the COVID-19 pandemic. To facilitate this, the company is emphasizing emotional intelligence, measuring leadership effectiveness and helping leaders create cultures of clarity and belonging. “As teams become more diverse, leaders need the mindsets and skills to build trust and shared purpose to unleash innovation and commitment,” concludes Heather.
