Palma Consulting to provide Effective ManagersTM Manager Assessment and Effective Point of Accountability® services.

Amman, Jordan. Dwight Mihalicz, President of Effective ManagersTM and Tamara Abdel-Jaber, co-founder and executive board member at Palma Consulting, announced today the signing of an agreement with Palma Consulting, based in Amman, Jordan.

Since 1997 Palma Consulting has been providing business and IT consulting services; nearly 20 years filled with significant growth and accomplishments and geographic expansion, in addition to developing long-term relationships with worldwide leaders. Palma Consulting was built as a regional business process management consulting firm that accesses international best practices, and localizes it to fit the needs of our clients in the MENA region.

“I am delighted to welcome Tamara and the Palma Team to the family of consulting firms that are using the Effective ManagersTM methodology to help their clients improve organizational performance”, said Dwight Mihalicz. “I am particularly pleased expand our reach further into the Middle East, as Palma will provide these services in both Jordan and Saudi Arabia.”

The partnership will be launched on February 24 at an executive briefing in Amman with executives from the Arab Region. That same afternoon a seminar, co-facilitated by Dwight and Tamara, will be held for executives and senior managers to introduce them to the Effective ManagersTM tools for improving the performance of their teams.

Tamara, who will be opening the launch breakfast meeting, commented on the partnership: “Palma Consulting has been supporting clients enhance their effectiveness for many years now across the Arab region. In our efforts to help clients in their journey towards excellence, we are happy to partner with Effective Managers and introduce the Effective Managers toolkit. We see this as a cornerstone in empowering leaders and managers and enabling organizational growth.”

The Effective ManagerTM Assessment uses a proprietary survey methodology to engage managers specifically to assess their overall effectiveness, and the key factors that impede or support them in their work. The benchmark shows that managers are, in fact, working at only 55% effectiveness. The results can provide insights to CEOs and Heads of HR on how to align their managerial work force so that strategy execution can be enhanced. Results offer insight prior to a major change initiative in the organization that can help shape a new organizational design, like a merger or acquisition.

The Effective ManagersTM Assessment is a 94-question confidential survey has been developed to gather data directly from managers, who can log on to a secure web site to provide their direct input on these measures. Traditional employee surveys require all employers to participate. With this survey, a CEO can get the results with an investment of 20 – 30 minutes of each manager’s time.

CEOs will receive a report that details the findings in their organization, grouped together with benchmark results. Each measure is described in detail to ensure an understanding of what the results mean. The report concludes with the high level findings, customized for their organization, together with the areas of greatest strengths and greatest opportunities. If a CEO can understand the relationships between these measures and effectiveness in their organizations, action can be taken that will improve effectiveness.
