How We Work
We typically work with two types of organizations across industries:
- Companies that employ between 100 up to 10,000 individuals, or with annual revenues of between $15 million and $15 billion.
- Entrepreneurial enterprises that employ between 1 and 100 individuals who are nimbly taking advantage of timely circumstances.
Our specialty culture bench-marking products can be used in organizations with as few as 30 and as many as 10,000 individuals.
Our culture invigoration products can be used in companies with as few as one and as many as 200 (or more) employees.
We provide company performance products, coaching, and consulting.

Our product, coaching, and consulting specialties enhance relationships to improve company performance.
Perhaps it might be simply that the introduction of a timely, very attractive, nontraditional voluntary wellness benefit will promote improved employee morale leading to enhanced loyalty and productivity. Or a new communication or safety technology for more readily connecting the people you want and need to engage on behalf of your company goals. Or a specific HR function enhanced by a new technological improvement. All products we make available to you are designed to enhance and improve the effectiveness your people’s relationships as tied to your company’s strategic interests, whether these relationships are to external or internal stakeholders, be they local, regional or global.
Our coaching and consulting specialties include:
• Step-by-step basics, with management, to ensure the foundations for a healthy and high-performing workplace culture have been set in-place.
• Strategic human capital alignment to achieve specific company goals with clarity, accountability and timeliness.
• Major change products: Improving the people-performance side of business turn-arounds, mergers & acquisitions, and leadership transitions, by engineering alternatives to “culture clash.”
• Low-cost private enterprise buy-sell tools for maximum value to all key stakeholders.
We deliver this coaching and consulting in various ways, depending on client needs, budgets and timelines.
Our principle offerings include:
• Stand-alone organizational consulting, such as promotion of an action learning program among employees to empower effective organization-wide integration of a newly introduced technology or to solve a specific organizational problem. Or step-by-step establishment of structural and process basics for a strong culture foundation, tailored to specific situations.
• Introduction to business savings through business culture invigoration, by means of inherent, “Yes!” nontraditional, voluntary, employee wellness benefits by which employees are able to secure more, through you and at no cost to you, than their money alone (their direct wages) can buy.
• Stand-alone leadership coaching, tailored to specific needs and goals.
• Culture-based, integrated, leadership coaching & organizational consultation for transformative results. (Our out-of-the-ordinary Denison® Culture & Leadership Development tools and network come into play here!)
Our clear preference is to start with you and your executive team’s completion of a no-obligation but confidential Business Culture Discovery Conversation. Dependent upon your level of interest and the nature of your situation, this initial interview will generally take from 30 minutes to two hours. We will schedule the time necessary to clarify with you the nature and source of challenges you want to solve, and the building blocks already in place to address those challenges and for business development ideas you may wish to pursue.
Only after clearly understanding your situation, can we offer you clear suggestions. This could include referral to other trusted providers, if deemed more advantageous to you and your situation.
We stand behind our work and welcome your inquiry.
