What we do

We partner with our clients to deliver:

Professional Coaching

Coaching empowers individuals to move past barriers, change perspectives and increase perception, create clarity and meaning, and achieve goals in any area of professional or personal life. We ask the right questions, use the appropriate tools, and provide the necessary structure and accountability to identify and achieve these goals. Coaching is done via phone with anyone, anywhere, or in person in the Ann Arbor area.

Organizational assessment

Evaluation of an organization or functional area in a transparent, collaborative manner, to improve performance, prepare for planned leadership succession, or respond to an unanticipated event or other imperative.

Strategic planning

Combining leadership vision with stakeholder engagement and data analysis to develop effective strategic plans that are realistic, aspirational paths to success.

Process improvement

Helping organizations document current state business practices, quantify the associated effort, and design a more efficient, effective future state.
