Dr. Chip Roper has been building and participating in organize teams for 35 years. He blends the school of hard knocks with the practical side of academic learning to bring a robust perspective on the disciplines of teaming.
Steeped in Columbia University's Executive Coaching Philosophy, all of VOCA's Team programs are built on two critical insights: 1) lasting change requires a constant back and forth between context, new information and options, and conduct = action in the real world; 2) Both cognitive and experiential learning are required to master any discipline.
Dr. Roper's research into program measurement has shown that lasting behavioral change is possible with participant involvement, measurement, repetition, and connection to meaning.
VOCA regularly draws on the writing of great business thinkers and practitioners including Jim Collins, Peter Drucker, Sheila Heen, Clayton Christenson, Robert Kegan, Ken Blanchard, Patrick Lencioni, John Kotter, Robert Quinn, and Jack & Suzy Welch.
