WHAT WE DO
Lead Teams to Creatively Solve Complex Problems
We know the challenges you and your teams face are often tough and complex. The “what” you are working on is difficult enough without having to focus on the “how” your team is working on it. That’s where we can help. Our expert facilitation insures your teams are navigating through the complexity with clarity, creativity, and good judgement.
Strategy Co-Creation Design and Collaboration
Developing a strategy for your business that everyone can align with and agree upon can sometimes be an elusive task. Too often, it is the work of a few trying to gain buy in of many to actually bring the strategy to life. Our unique blend of process, tools and facilitation expertise can make creating innovative strategies that have strong buy in not only doable but often engaging and fun!
Innovation Skill Building and Culture Creation
There is a lot of talk about creating innovative organizations and cultures. The challenge is “how?” If you want to help invigorate people to innovate in the day to day business as well as create new opportunities for growth, let us help. We know how. We design, build and deliver active, immersive learning experiences to do just this. Our work has helped build innovation skills, behaviors and capabilities in individuals, teams and organizations in Fortune 100 to small startups.

WHAT ARE CLIENTS SAYING?

In very short order, Janet leveraged her proven process to navigate our team through a complex situation and bring clarity to our true problem definition. I believe Albert Einstein once said, “If I was given one hour to save the world, I would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem.” Janet was systematic in helping the team generate an exhaustive list of creative possibilities to solve the problem… followed by determining the selection criteria we wanted to use to help us converge on the best possible solution to take forward. She continued to use the process of divergent and convergent thinking to help us roadmap our implementation. As a result, the time we spent with Janet up front has helped the team be 300% more efficient in implementing our large scale initiative!
Our team hired Janet Getto and her team to design and develop a scalable, experiential innovation and creativity skill-building program for our employees in North America. GettoGroup, LLC leveraged their organizational development mastery to create two highly engaging trainings that empowered our employees with new thought framework and practical skills. This sparked an authentic shift in our innovation culture, and helped us to scale and sustain the change in a desired direction… a best in class solution for our employees. For organizations looking to develop new best in class innovation capability, or to smoothly transform their innovation culture, I cannot think of a better partner than GettoGroup, LLC.

Ivy Tech Community College, the nation’s largest singly accredited community college serving nearly 200,000 Hoosiers per year, is embarking upon a transformation to be workforce aligned and agile to meet the changing needs of our students, employers and communities. Janet Getto has lead the integration of creative problem solving as one of our key change-making tools and organizational innovation behaviors. She was key to our success in developing a small army of trained facilitators and trainers who are leaders in the change effort and the engagement of hundreds of staff and faculty in specific problem-solving sessions. Further, our new strategic plan and organizational restructure were “powered” by this effort.
Janet assisted me in several companies with facilitation services ranging from designing and leading sessions that generated successful solutions to complex business problems related to call center effectiveness. In addition, Janet developed our internal skill set for problem solving within teams for the purpose of ‘getting more projects done faster’. She is professional, thorough, focused on results and fun to work with at the same time. Anyone would be wise to see if Janet is available to help them get business results at the organization, team or individual level.

Janet is an outstanding innovation facilitator, guide and trainer. She has deep expertise in guiding teams through complexity and does so with great professionalism and care. We work with Janet on an ongoing bases… it is a true pleasure to collaborate with her!
Janet was part of a 2 person team that helped the Senior Leadership Team at Liquidnet manage the Strategy Planning. Her deep understanding of the needs of the process/results we needed, coupled with her amazing ability to keep us on track in the most professional and low-key manner, produced two of our best strategy offsites. She helped us deliver exactly what she said we would (and needed to), and she remained flexible, upbeat and thoroughly professional during some very challenging moments. I would work with Janet again in a heartbeat, and I thoroughly recommend her.
Janet is an expert in the field of innovation and problem solving facilitation. She delivered an exceptional four day training programme on Applied Creativity in which on numerous occasions she showed great flexibility and creativity to ensure the course and outcomes were fit for purpose for my teams. My experience of Janet and her business from start to finish is one I would highly recommend.
Janet facilitated our strategic planning session. Her unique process allowed our team to put the best ideas on the table for engagement. We were able to come up with some great ideas that will lead us into the future. The road map she provided us a few days after the session makes the implementation more manageable and also brings accountability to the plan. Thank You Janet.
I had the privilege of working with Janet at my strategic planning session. We hired Janet to moderate our planning process and was extremely pleased with our results. Janet does a great job staying out of the content and keeping the team on track. Janet’s style enables her to extract highly strategic results, which led us to one of our most productive planning session. I would not hesitate to recommend Janet’s services.
Janet is a great facilitator for strategic planning sessions. She was able to get my team focused on strategic initiatives that we need to do as an organization. Janet’s experience allows her to focus on the process and not the content which resulted in a successful planning session. I am confident that we will be using Janet in the future.
