About Aventine Group

The Aventine Group is an innovative management consultancy firm created to help organizations
optimize their business by focusing on alleviating conflict to maximize results. We are seasoned
professionals with unique and diverse skills that combine to help organizations reach their full

What we do:
We specialize in performing an internal Organizational Conflict Audit® which is much like a check-up for
your organization. This assessment looks at interpersonal conflict as well as conflict that may exist in
the process and the system. With our conflict auditing services we help organizations change
corporate culture, maximize employees’ performance capacity, reduce sick days and create
employee engagement.

Once this check-up is complete we sit with your executive team and discuss recommendations and
ways forward to address the issues found. We then help implement these recommendations.
Ultimately, this process leads to strategic organizational transformation.

How can we help you?
We can help you drive growth and innovation because we are creative problem solvers who
know how to differentiate your organization through our dynamic approach to business. We
help our clients gain competitive advantages in today’s increasingly volatile and aggressive
landscape by focusing on their best asset – their human capital. All of the most innovative
companies — Google, Apple, and Facebook — started with the genius of human capital. It is
that genius potential that we focus on in our assessments. How to capitalize on and optimize
that capital, in a mutually beneficial way for employee and employer, is our goal. To help create
an environment where the genius of potentiality can germinate; this is our specialization.
Our organizational development services are custom-made to provide collaborative, strengths-
based solutions, interventions and plans for your company or non-profit. We help you assess
your current reality, identify your objectives, goals and visions, and develop a set of strategies
aligned with the growth, success, and outcomes you want to achieve.

Why does this method work?
Traditionally, business transformation and change has focused on tangibles (bottom lines, metrics etc.)
We focus on intangibles because we know that people in conflict perform sub-optimally, as do processes
and systems. Addressing conflict in sincere terms and providing meaningful ways forward will gain the
trust, re-inspire and motivate employees to give you their best. People want to be heard, they want
ways to contribute the best of themselves, we help you have those conversations and get the desired
results for all parties. Further, employees are usually the first-line in working with systems that are
inefficient and problematic, most times they can give the best assessment of the issue and often have
solutions readily available, there just needs to be an opportunity for them to be heard. Working on the
intangibles invariably leads to changes in tangibles.

Why Aventine?
Our name was specifically chosen to represent what this company embodies – an agency for
capitalizing on potential that already exists, mitigating the risk of conflict both interpersonal and
systemic and becoming the best you can be. (add link here Our story and Philosophy)
