How we Work.

Our typical engagement combines on-site implementation support with remote coaching and execution support. The flexibility of remote technology is undeniable, but we believe there is no substitute for time spent on the front lines of your business.

Our “sales process” is collaborative. We value connecting with business leaders and working together to identify areas of opportunity when the time is right.

We strive to earn our keep in every minute spent on your business, and believe that goals and measurements provide necessary focus and clarity to that end.

We bill a flat hourly rate for most of our engagements, however the specific budget varies based on scope and the pace of improvement desired.
