“For knowing where one belongs makes ordinary people – hardworking, competent, but mediocre otherwise – into outstanding performers.”
Peter F. Drucker
Outstanding performance is essential to business success, and Peter Drucker’s idea that knowing where one belongs warrants additional thinking if not translation and application. Dr. Rothschild’s work takes the concept of where one belongs to include how attitudes and beliefs implicitly shape our environments to an extent that often determines if one belongs or not. When skill already exists we may get in our own way when attempting to perform as our best selves. We may not notice or take seriously assumptions that thwart our best efforts. Many write underperformance off as a cost of doing business. One component of loss that can be addressed is often the problem of mindlessness.
Implicit assumptions and blindspots co-create interpersonal difficulties that hinder outstanding performance, and although you may be aware that something is off, situating what is not working in order to improve performance is not simple. However, situating and working with blind spots is possible and often reduces loss. Dr. Rothschild specializes in clarifying assumptions and attitudes held by business owners and leaders that diminish performance in order to reformulate attitudes and beliefs thereby making the difference between outstanding and mediocre practice.Simply, interpersonal dynamics contribute to organizational underperformance, and consultation with a psychologist such as Louis can help members of an organization stay on track. Dr. Rothschild provides direct engagement of the complex people-issues that occur in the work place, and has experience working with individuals across roles from the executive level to management in addition to joint sessions held with business partners. His orientation is based in the science that personality traits predict knowledge acquisition, motivation, and performance, and in the philosophy that functional interpersonal dynamics contribute to business success. Louis brings his psychological expertise to articulate the belief that employee attitudes, performance, and cohesion help determine if a given company’s bottom line will be one of success or failure.
With over fifteen years in private practice, Louis is accustomed to facilitating situations that require process consultation and collaborative inquiry due to their delicate nature. He utilizes his clinical skills to evaluate not only an individual client but to assess organizational contexts and cultures in order to tailor his approach to meet both his client’s needs and the organization’s goals. Consultation with him helps leaders and teams increase organizational flow and subsequently, the
development of healthier organizations.
