Our Solutions: Expert Consulting & Leadership Coaching


Leadership Development

"Before you are a leader success is all about growing yourself.  After becoming a leader, success is all about growing others."  ~ Jack Welch 

A sacred priviledge - leading others.  Learn how to be an exemplary leader through the 5 Practices of Exemplary Leadership.  For 30 years this approach has stood the test of time.  Make sure your leaders have these skills to lead your organization to a compelling future.

Healthy Teams

Leaders get things done through others.  Do you know what it takes to build healthy teams?  And what individual attributes should you seek and develop in team members?  This is the ultimate competitive advantage.  Make sure your teams are healthy and ready for the future.

1:1 Coaching

This is our secret sauce.  With our certified coaches, your leader's professional development will take off.  Our workshops plus 1:1 leadership coaching leads to real accountability and new habits.  One workshop with us is like 9 with others without this state-of-the-art approach to developing leaders that significantly raises retention, long-term skills formation, and application.

Building a Highly Engaged Workforce

How do you foster a culture of engagement?  The answers are not simple or necessarily easy, but it starts with the leader's behaviors.  Make sure your leadership team can foster a culture that leads to highly engaged employees who take ownership and responsibility.

Breakthrough Communications

Unfortunately, not everyone comes to us with the knowledge and skills to communicate effectively.  This workshop focuses on what hinders our connection with others and the brain functions that can help and hinder our efforts to communicate.  Find out these details and experience a new level of understanding and being understood.

 Jim has changed my life both inside and outside of work. He began the program stating that with this training and coaching, our lives would change, and they certainly did. Leadership development is self-development and that quote is exemplified by this training. With Jim’s continued help and support, we have made many changes to our organizational structure … This has all led to a major transformation within our workforce including an expansion that doubled our size and with plans to again double our shop size in the future. Because of the buy-in and dedication from our employees to our shared vision, we would not be where we are today in terms of our quality and customer satisfaction. I would again like to thank our coach, Jim Franks and everyone else behind the scenes that supported us in this transformation.
