What Is The CODE Program?

CODE is a professional team elevation program that changes mindsets, increases productivity, and creates better effective team members. We take a deep dive on the values and principles that are foundational to success in any process and/or framework. The CODE Program features sessions that are customized to the company so that we can focus on tackling the problems that you are trying to solve head on. Our approach is to help teams grow personally and professionally through small and regular, character-based lessons. This program was created to instill a unified growth culture within workplaces to help create a better work process and environment overall.

Invented with your team’s enhancement in mind, CODE is designed and customized for each individual team by trained industry professionals in order to produce change within these teams for their holistic success in business and life.

Why Do We Need The CODE Program?

Over my career, I have been a part of many teams. Some good, some bad, and some in the middle. Intelligence or skill was never a factor in why a team was good or bad. There were smart people on every team I worked with.

Some in the software industry have asked if Scrum is enough. While Scrum is a great framework that we use on all of our projects, there is still more we can do. The CODE Program sits on top of Scrum, helps each member of the team contribute more effectively, and helps the team as a whole work more like a single unit.

Talent only goes so far. Skills only go so far. Intelligence only goes so far. The CODE Program will help good individuals to become great, and great individuals will become exceptional.

I started the CODE Program so that I can help affect positive change. Change is hard, but with this program we help change become a little easier.

Why The CODE Method is Effective

By combining the benefits of one-on-one coaching and mentorship within the power of community, teams and individuals incrementally grow their agile and/or current mindset until the habits of practicing these foundational values and principles become the identity of those involved.

"Everything rises and falls on Leadership," says best-selling leadership author, John C. Maxwell.  CODE exists to bring the intangibles of servant leadership to life, first in the individual, then in the team, and ultimately in the company as a whole.

"Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline," says best selling business author Jim Collins. CODE was created to help instill habits not acts into teams to further abilities to enhance individual and business greatness. It takes discipline, constant learning and practice to not be stagnant in the work and business process.

"There are only two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it or you can inspire it," says best selling business author Simon Sinek. CODE focuses on helping create and instilling better habits for teams in order to inspire better performance, effectiveness and productivity.

"Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle" stated by best selling author Napoleon Hill. CODE was designed to help elevate teams abilities and effectiveness by constant customized learning. In order to grow skills and achieve set goals, we have to put forth effort, we have to practice new skills and repeat these new methods to create effective habits.

"Habits are powerful, but delicate. They can emerge outside our consciousness, or can be deliberately designed. They often occur without our permission, but can be reshaped by fiddling with their parts", says best selling business author Charles Duhigg. The CODE Program was designed to help create better habits and change the inefficient habits to create a better functioning, more effective team.

"If you want to bring a fundamental change in people's belief and behavior... you need to create a community around them, where those new beliefs can be practiced and expressed and nurtured" says business author Malcolm Gladwell. CODE believes in creating a better community and/or culture for teams in order to reach optimal team effectiveness and performance. In order to create change in a workplace, you have to understand current mindsets and work processes, have a call to action and initiate new methods and techniques to help influence your team's enhancement.

"Teams can be high functioning but still have many dysfunctional qualities. 75% of high functioning teams are dysfunctional. Solve this by adding new methods or techniques like team enhancement programs into your team's work process for progression".

Harvard Business Review

For candidates willing to hone their 'uniquely human skills,' there is opportunity. While employers anticipate that computer and tech skills will be among the most coveted in the next five years, many human skills, such as critical thinking, communication, and the ability to learn new skills will remain important.

Michael Hansen

59% of Millennials reported that opportunities to learn and grow are extremely important to them when applying for a job.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions we are asked.

Why is CODE a six month program?

CODE is a six month program because we feel as though that is enough time to learn new skills. We want to help your team form effective habits for success at work. We want our clients to acquire new skills through learning and action. Learning takes practice, repetition and time. You can’t expect a one day workshop to solve problems. In order for change to take place, you have to constantly work at it.

What is CODE’s Approach to solving workplace challenges?

We help development teams grow personally and professionally through small and regular, character-based lessons. We are helping to form habits, not premature actions.

Why does CODE work?

The famous Greek Philosopher Aristotle wrote: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” If it’s been true since the time of Aristotle, then it’s always been true. The CODE program helps teams tap into their full potential through resourcing them with the tools and one-on-one coaching necessary to create better habits around connecting with others, setting and achieving goals, motivation and discipline, and developing a positive mindset.

Why are group calls/Zoom calls effective?

Inclusion & Flexibility. CODE is as much about group learning as one on one learning. We use these group video calls to draw on the knowledge and experience of the group. Everyone can contribute.

What do we do to understand a business’ needs?

CODE uses pre-assessments and meetings before any coaching/learning takes place to determine what is going on within your company and team to figure out core issues that could be causing the challenges that you are facing. Our program is customized to the company in regard to what your company’s team needs.

What does the action material do for my team?

The action material allows your team to continue to practice what they have been taught. Action material helps to continue the lessons taught during group calls and enhances the individual team members skillset.

Who do we help?

We help software development teams be greater. We have witnessed countless common challenges after working in the Software industry for so long. We created this program to help dev teams be able to successfully and effectively be a member of a team, learn and enhance skills as well as teach your team to elevate professionally within their role.

What’s the difference between coaching and consulting?

In consulting, it’s usually the consultant’s job to tell a company what they need to do. Coaching is coming up with solutions to fix challenges by giving techniques, methods, ideologies etc. to internally change situations. It's more about learning, involvement and engagement of everyone on your team. Coaching is sharing guidance through our experiences. Consulting is merely giving instructions.

What results can you expect working with CODE?

Do we guarantee company confidentiality?

Yes. We will never share specific company details. We have the proper contracts in place so that you can speak freely during calls.

What makes your coaches qualified to be a coach?

Our coaches are business professionals who have worked firsthand in the tech industry. Our coaches have real world experience, know what it’s like to be a part of a team as well as manage one.

What are the benefits of this program?

The benefits are the growth culture that you would be instilling within your company. We want to help you create a flexible, adaptable and effective team. We do this by working with your team together as well as individually.
