Move From Disconnection to Connection

GRC Connects and Protects.

The world is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA). And despite all of the innovation intended to connect us, we've never been so disconnected.

GRC Professionals are the ones charged with looking before we leap, carefully thinking through issues, finding and fixing problems and generally being the source of Stability in our organizations.

Some call us Protectors because of the work we do in departments such as the board, executive teams, strategy, risk, compliance, quality, human resources, internal controls, information security and audit.

OCEG created Principled Performance and GRC to help Protectors improve their organization by moving from disconnected departments, people, purpose, and skills to a more connected workplace, with integrated capabilities, interconnected relationships, interlinked shared values, and interdisciplinary skills.

We help disconnected departments become connected groups

With Principled Performance® and GRC, your teams evolve from disconnected departments and silos to teams with integrated capabilities by using the GRC Capability Model.

Our certifications and training transforms disconnected individuals into connected teams

Too often, people operate in their own little bubbles, more lonely and more disconnected from each other than ever before.

With Principled Performance® and GRC, they'll learn how to form interconnected relationships with their colleagues and collaborate better. They'll learn how to become an Interconnected Coworker.

With OCEG training, a disconnected purpose becomes a connected goal

Individuals may not be connected to the shared, core values of an organization or its customers, and may be drifting off on their own.

With OCEG training, they are taught how to improve themselves with more interlinked, shared values with the organization and customers. They will learn to have an Intentional Culture.

GRC leaders develop disconnected skillsets into connected skillsets

People generally focus on one skill set — they have one hammer and everything looks like a nail.

Here at OCEG, we encourage people to be interdisciplinary and to approach their work from multiple perspectives ... and to be a more versatile executive with the Protector Skillset.

  • I've been to countless seminars, have achieved several certifications, but only OCEG has helped me understand myself and develop my people skills. Those skills are just as important as my GRC knowledge.
    Gustiono K.
  • This was an awakening for me. I was speaking the wrong language. I was talking about risk and everyone else was talking about growth. Now I know how to connect the two. What a difference!
    Karen C.
  • I never thought of my role as being a sales role. OCEG gave me the tools to build and sell the business case for not only GRC, but also risk, compliance and assurance.
