Our company's history

ALLOY-Strong.jpg

From Individual Talent to Alloy Strong

Years ago, ALLOY was composed of a talented team of individuals that dominated the retail and CPG industry with branding. As the economy began to shift, we began developing differentiation with research and strategy capabilities. We delivered Fortune 500 quality identity and packaging work that is regarded as elite to this day. There was only one problem…

85% of executives around the globe believe that the most critical issues that prevent businesses from growth are internal, not external. This research validated our experience as well. Time and time again, we would deliver what we were told was a solid strategy, but found that leaders needed help to execute the new brand, new innovation, or new change management program. As complexity and speed from a non routine work setting increased, this challenge became more obvious. It was then we recognized the need to begin researching the role of leadership in today’s non routine world. The problem was vividly clear. Leaders were struggling to grow their organizations consistently, struggling to guide and direct their teams in a non routine world and, ultimately not growing fast enough themselves.

However, we also observed a glimpse of hope in the midst of this chaos. A new kind of leader had emerged from our research, one who had honed the discipline of navigating change far better than his/her peers. Once we identified the core competencies of this leader, we adopted the mindset ourselves, placing it at the core of our culture. Over time, these competencies became a powerful intellectual property, called Framework Thinking™, that serves as the backbone for each of our offerings. Framework Thinking™ was so groundbreaking to our culture and our clients, that our name shifted to reflect our new business model and our new-found ability to unite elite business strategy with adaptive leadership coaching. Now, the strength of every strategy we deliver is future-proofed with leadership coaching/training for today’s Non Routine Leader.
