YOU talk, we listen. We coach, YOU win.

YOU can accomplish the extraordinary. 

We get it. We’ve been there. We understand the unique challenges of the corner office. Together, we have grown national and international brands for more than 75 years. More than once over the years we used a seasoned confidant and experienced coach to help us navigate the frustrations every successful executive is certain to face. 

We get just how stressful life can be at the highest executive level. We recognize that top-performing leaders greatly benefit when a competent, wise and weathered coach is in their corner, face to face, helping them maneuver through the challenges of life and work. 

We are in your corner for life and work. Are you facing more opportunities than you have time? Shareholders, board members and stakeholders applying the pressure? Is work squeezing out life at home? You talk and we listen. We coach and you win. You bring the challenges and we bring the experience to help you lead the way.

Are you ready? Our work together will be inspiring, deep, one-on-one and will uncover blind spots and opportunities to help you succeed. Let’s get the conversation started. You are one call or email away from leading and living at a whole new level.

Growth Strategies

Burn the Binders! 

Too many consultants make growth mystical and complicated. What ought to be simple is way too difficult. Pain staking, laborious and boring so-called strategic planning retreats are often a huge waste of time and money. Sessions are full of talk and no action. The final plans aren’t worth the three ring binder and paper they are printed on.

It is very likely you and your team already know what you need to do to succeed. If you are like most high performance teams, you could just use some help facilitating the discussion and organizing the strategy into easy doable steps. The key is to cut through the clutter and grab hold of the simple solutions. Tough questions lead to simple solutions when you know the answers are waiting to be discovered.

Unless strategy is simple and implementable, it is destined to gather dust. Strategy shouldn’t be overcomplicated. There is a better way. It’s just not that hard to win.  

Our approach to strategic planning is simple and certain to break records and gain lasting results.

One idea and a white board can change it all! You and your team will work hard, and it will be intense at times, but you will leave energized and inspired with clear direction and a simple strategy for increasing your success.

High-Octane Teams

A leader with no followers is just on a good walk. 

Look over your shoulder. Is your team with you? You will never reach your full potential without a high functioning, high impact and high octane team.

Business is a team sport. Unfortunately, all to often, the toughest competition comes from within. We can beat our competitors so long as we aren’t beating ourselves. Trust is the key to winning teams. We like to win. Don’t let a loser tell you how to win. With more than 75 years of combined experience, leading at a nationwide and global level, we have a few tricks up our sleeves to help you maximize your team’s potential.

Purpose-Driven Cultures

Success and Significance 

A purpose-driven culture is the key to developing a triple bottom line. Our approach to the triple bottom line maximizes profits, people and purpose throughout the organization. Success and significance bring lasting satisfaction in life and work.

Purpose-driven cultures increase employee retention, customer loyalty and corporate profitability. When work has meaning, people soon discover the power of working on purpose!

We discovered that doing good is actually good for business. When our clients implement the secrets of the triple bottom line, their organizations begin to thrive. A purpose-driven culture is essential to a triple bottom line. We’d love to show you how.
