"Titles don't get results...behaviors do."
Human behavior is the #1 influencer of business success and failures... and of which very few business leaders and their HR partners know how to effectively work with. In fact most of what's learned is by default and lots of trial and error -- many costly errors.
In our 23+ years of business, we've seen this to be the #1 knowledge deficit of most leaders at every level and company size. This knowledge deficit adversely impacts decision-making. The ripple effect?...continuous substantial stumbling blocks to optimal operations, strategic execution, better profits and business building.
** The crazy thing?...most are unaware that this is the key issue to their challenges with "people management" and optimal operations...in fact, to anything and everything about their business!
Consider > The very thing leaders need to know the most about to achieve the best results...they know the least about.
All of this we characterize as the human quotient. Through a variety of resources, we help leaders develop and practically apply their human quotient - . (By the way, if you're familiar with EQ /IQ - emotional intelligence quotient - this is a build upon, expanded version of it.)
With a better working knowledge of human behavior, the next unique leadership challenge to tackle is decision-making... a hugely overlooked executive capability.
Confidential Sounding Board - Trusted Advisor
Part of our 'on-demand" offering, here's an area that we've discovered is a significant need. You know that phrase "It's lonely at the top"? Well, we've experienced for many senior leaders that phrase has proven to be true. Many leaders have difficulty finding a confidential, discerning and trusted resource to express thoughts and needs to gain clarity and maintain positive energy from which to function and make critical decisions – in essence to function at their best in the midst of a particular challenge or transition.
many confide in fellow colleagues who may have a vested or competing interest, and therefore do not provide the independent, unbiased input they need. Or, they may work with other business advisors who do not have the specific expertise needed to adequately address the issue.
The bottom line?... to be and lead at their best, leaders need a safe place to talk, process, be real and brutally truthful, stripping away barriers and pretension -- removing any fear of judgment. They need to be able to lead with clarity, confidence and positive energy. They need someone who will speak truth to them operating for their highest good.

1> Through our expertise in human behavior, we focus on what makes the greatest impact which saves you time and money.
Through our years working in operational effectiveness, we, along with clients, have determined there are 9 areas, which when weak or neglected generate the most problems. These areas reflect underdeveloped leaders/managers.
And, this is critical, they are also the key to the best results! So, we created a leadership and management developement guide formualted as a blueprint that focuses on addressing those 9 areas as first priority.
When this blueprint is fully executed (designed for an intial roll-out within 90 days), a foundation is laid from which effective, sustainable leadership/management can be executed. View a 6 minute overview of the blueprint here => The Distinct Leader Blueprint
2> The blueprint serves as the foundation of our core leadership development offering, we don't do what others offer - traditional executive coaching, courses or certification programs. We do hyper-focused, short 90-day development cycles starting with the blueprint, tied to your strategic plan and includes measuring and tracking where applicable, such as financial assessment of activity and outcomes.
For an expanded explanation of how we work, see the 9 minute video in the next section - We Chose a Different Direction.
As executive advisors, we fill a significant market gap for continued learning & development for owners, founders, senior leaders (emerging executives) and even current executives who feel the need to improve or just want a reboot.
Outside of traditional coaching or weekend executive certification programs...there are few choices for meaningful executive leadership development where results can be financially measured. This is our expertise.
