CONSULTING

Whether you are small family business struggling to grow, a medium sized business with accountability and teamwork challenges, or a nonprofit needing a new direction, Todd offers the voice of experience to build value through strategic planning and execution.  Our consulting focus is on building both business and personal effectiveness, realizing leaders need to manage themselves to effective lead their organization.

TRAINING

Work with Todd to improve individual and team performance.  Todd specializes in communication, delegation, building trust, and many other interpersonal skills needs.  Together we will identify your needs and build a customized training experience to increase performance. Todd also facilitates off-site strategic retreats and training events for non-profit boards.

Our Mission

Our aim is to look at leadership development and organization growth from the inside out. In other words, focusing on the individual blind spots that are preventing progress. Taking ownership of who you are rather than being consumed by what is happening to you. When you work from the inside out you often need an intervention to realize your opportunities. We are called to be the voice of experience to define reality, set goals, and execute an action plan.
