The old axiom "you manage things and lead people" still holds true. Given today's business environment you could say it's more important than ever. Why is leadership so hard to define for many people? Perhaps because management is a science and leadership is an art.
Developing leaders is vital to any organization. How deep is your bench? We help clients identify future leaders and train and coach them to achieve results through others. We also support them on their leadership journey through self-awareness, empathy and active listening.
Executive Coaching - Achieve better results, grow your company faster and maximize your impact as a leader. One-to-one sessions help you clarify the issues that hold you back and identify the opportunities that will propel you forward.
Building High Performance Teams

We help clients build high performing teams who achieve greater alignment, expanded capacity, enhanced performance, effective communication, stronger relationships, and maximized synergy.
Using a combination of Team LearnShops and coaching we can help your team achieve a breakthrough. It begins with building trust - which is the primary issue on dysfunctional teams.

Whether you’re a CEO, dentist, or non-profit Executive Director, use our coaching services to lead yourself to extraordinary outcomes.
What Executive Coaching Is
An executive coach is a qualified professional that works with individuals - usually business owners or executives, but often high-potential employees)- to help them gain self-awareness, clarify goals, achieve their development objectives, unlock their potential, and act as a sounding board. We ask questions to help our clients clarify and solve their own problems.

Team Problem Solving
The top performing organizations have long embraced a Total Quality Management philosophy and adopted Continuous Quality Improvement processes and tools to enhance productivity, customer satisfaction, and profitability in manufacturing and service environments.
Our easy-to-understand and use tools help even small organizations and teams to identify problems and opportunities and develop actionable plans to fix problems and seize on opportunities.
Culture by Design - Winning cultures are built by design not by default. An organization's culture is defined by its values and rules, both written and unwritten. It can be summarized as a formula:
Core Values + Core Purpose + Vision = Culture
Creating a great culture takes lots of patience and persistence. You must build it around your core purpose and know that Purpose is the secret weapon in your business and that more than making money people want to make a difference and do something that has meaning.
Strategic planning isn't just for Fortune 500 companies. Even small businesses and non-profits can benefit from a strategic planning workshop to develop vision and mission statements, set goals, and identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
If you don't have a road map and a plan, how do you know where you're going and how you are going to get there?
