How We Do It

We assess organizations through the eyes of your people to identify opportunities

There are key elements to an effective survey to gain insight into an organization’s culture. How each individual feels about their role, their peers and the organization all must be captured in a brief, science-based survey. This survey must be actionable, meaning what is learned can be acted upon. Our survey does all of these things.

We train & coach using a proven system of highly interactive sessions combined with reinforcement

People learn differently and effective training touches all of these styles. Whether virtual or onsite it must be interactive, practical and drive specific actions that can be taken. As importantly there must be simple but consistent reinforcement so what is learned is practiced. Our training is designed from the ground up to do all of this.

Reinforcement is so important we have created an entire portfolio for our clients

90% of what is learned in training is forgotten in 30 days, it is called learning decay. This would be catastrophic on a submarine so we have surfaced the reinforcement process to ensure what is used is put into practice and becomes part of daily operations. No decay, The Submarine Way.

ABOUT US

We are changing the world

In 2016, a Keynote speech in South Carolina, to 400 business and community leaders caused such a deep, emotional, "we need to do something with this" reaction that our founder and President, Deb Cake Fortin, was moved to act.

Deb left corporate America and wrote what would become the best selling book, Diversity and Inclusion The Submarine Way. She refined the companies focus, rebranded it as the Submarine Way and success for our clients has been the measurable result.
