Our Mission & Strategy

We are a consulting firm of former chief executives that improves the leadership infrastructure of midsized companies seeking to accelerate their performance.  We help these leaders rapidly elevate their game and lead their companies to the next level and beyond.

We work with the senior-most executive at companies or divisions with revenue ranging from $20 million to $400 million that are facing significant opportunities and challenges. Our clients are very talented CEOs and c suite leaders who nonetheless feel they are still learning their craft, realize their company's performance depends on improving their own performance and want to enhance their skills rapidly and on the job.

Our clients typically work in one of three types of companies:


We work with firms whose marketplaces are undergoing change and whose internal organizations have become more complex to manage. They turn to us to raise their skills in three areas: business acumen (competitive analysis, planning, M&A, financial structuring, etc.), leadership acumen (maintaining a high performing team, getting key stakeholders "on the same page") and interpersonal acumen (listening, emotional intelligence, and relationship management). We help them act with confidence to make critical decisions and lead their organizations.

Unlike consulting firms that are brought in to solve company problems, we are former CEOs of mid-market companies who equip midsized company leaders with the skills to address those problems. And while executive coaches largely help CEOs improve their interpersonal skills, we develop business acumen and leadership acumen in addition to interpersonal acumen. Lastly, where university programs teach leaders in classrooms, we bring the education to our clients so they can learn their new skills on the job to solve pressing issues.

As a result, our clients are far better able to help their companies meet their growth targets; solve both current and future challenges; gain confidence as leaders; raise the game of their leadership teams; and make them more accountable for results.
