I coached a health-care system through severe staff conflict and to increased patient visits, shorter appointment times and significantly increased profit.
An international high-tech manufacturer used our strategic planning and sales development processes to execute improved results and higher profits in Europe, Asia and the United States.
A couple law firms used our ADVanced Insights assessment process to learn about each other, then executed the strategic plan we developed to form a new law firm.
An Accounting Firm has us conduct their annual and quarterly planning sessions.
A financial planner used our coaching process to go from near last to 2nd best in his office in six months.
An equipment distribution and sales company uses our DIALOG (Data Indicating Alignment of Organizational Goals) organizational assessment tool annually to gauge employee engagement.
