Managing Principal

Our Services



Companies who use assessments in the hiring process are more likely to find the person best suited for the job and the team. If you have ever made a wrong hiring decision, you realize how expensive that can be for your organization. Use of assessments can save money and time.

Team Selection & Development

If you value people and think they are the greatest asset in your business, then we can agree and be on the same page. Seeing a high employee turnover is a definite red flag and concern. One bad apple can spoil the bunch. Attracting and retaining employees can be the biggest asset or curse to any business.

Customer Satisfaction

If your customers were asked "How likely are you to recommend our company or product or service?", what would be their response? This is the most important question you need to ask. Not only do you need to ask the question, but you need to brace yourself for the response. The answer will take your business to the next level. We ask your customers and provide this vital information back to you in a dashboard.

Employee Satisfaction

Do you know what your employees are saying about you, your organization, and your processes? Do you have an overall job satisfaction score based on feedback from your employees? This metric can open your eyes to initiatives that can change your environment. A happy employee is an asset to your business. An annual employee satisfaction survey is something we can facilitate and report back to you.

Entrepreneur Coaching & Business Development

Working "in" the business and "on" the business simultaneously can hinder even the best Entrepreneur. The best example of this can be found in the book "The E-Myth Revisited" by Michael Gerber. Mentoring Entrepreneurs hands on in their business to fine tune processes and selecting the people within their organization is what has propelled my business forward.

Training (Customer Service, DISC/Values)

The best way to teach is to lead by example. You have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Mentoring the behaviors and performance expectations for your employees is the best gift you can give your business and employees or co-workers. Sometimes though, you need someone else to mentor and teach them. Maybe even mentor and teach you. Training customer service, communication, and team cohesiveness are areas you can rely on us to be the experts for you and your team.

Be present in your life

Be present; don’t run the red light!

We live in a society that connects us in so many ways to so many people. Unwritten expectations include immediate gratification or receiving a response 24/7. So how can we focus on the present when we have way too many items on our plate to handle?

Giving Feedback

Feedback can be difficult to give to others. Receiving feedback can be even more difficult to accept. In both circumstances, negative feedback, or constructive criticism, is the most difficult to give or receive.

We Have Not Because We Ask Not

The next time opportunity knocks at your door, open the door and see what happens. Or better yet, be the one to knock first. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own imagination of what might go wrong that we fail
