Advisor to Advisors - Business Consulting & Personal Coaching
Over the past 25 years of working with a wide variety of large financial producers, managers and CEO’s of high powered niche services firms, we’ve found that elite professionals value five things:
Personal attention and customized counsel – result is strong motivation for laser action.
A strategic sounding board for their prospecting and marketing ideas and client opportunities - result is best thinking and decision making.
A 3rd party facilitator for their tough issues – result is conflict resolved quickly.
An outside evaluation of their processes and approaches – result is a reality check and healthy change.
Competitive advantage through relentless continuous improvement and expert training – result is never reversing, always growing.
All five of these benefits take place in the course of our typical approach to an ongoing coaching relationship.
• One monthly, in-person meeting (up to 2 hours but full days are available).
• Scheduled mid-month phone conference for follow up, accountability and support.
• As needed on-call support by phone and email for spot help.

Achieving Manager Study
The Achieving Manager Study - Breakthrough Research
“If we know one thing today…it is most managers are made, not born…there has to be a systematic work on the supply, the development, and the skills of tomorrow’s management…it cannot be left to chance.”
- Peter F. Drucker
The Achieving Manager study is based in solid science and shows definitively the common behavioral characteristics that the top achieving leaders employ to set themselves apart from their lesser achieving colleagues. These leaders were most highly valued by their respective companies and were promoted faster and given the most responsibility for managing their organization's assets and people.

Goal Setting is a powerful way to build self-confidence and self-esteem
Fear of Losing - Many people do not set goals because they are afraid they will be criticized for not reaching them
Fear of Winning - Odd as it may seem, some people do not set goals because they fear success
"I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives. Perhaps it's because escape is easier than change" - Jim Rohn
