  • More About Our Services

    Analyzing past, current and future conditions and providing expert assessments and recommendations for future courses of action. When in a "consulting" partnership, clients are expected to make their own final determinations about which actions to take after thoughtful consideration of our recommendations. A variety of assessment tools and approaches are utilized to formulate these specific recommendations.

    Typically done in a "team building" or "conflict resolution" setting, our job is to remove barriers to success and effectiveness. We accomplish this through direct observations, short training modules on key issues, and/or through individual feedback to participants. We have developed a very distinctive approach to accelerating the pace and effectiveness of any group interaction.

    Coaching has become a buzzword in organizations today. We do not use the term lightly, or as a sound bite. A coaching relationship is purely focused on results. Coaching always combines direct, unfiltered feedback to the client, with either thoughtful questions to encourage new thinking, or suggested actions. Organizations spend millions of dollars on promoting and training managers to become executives. Often their prior success was their only criteria on which their future success was assumed. Receiving direct, honest constructive feedback is a gift to executives who often find themselves alienated from data that can ensure their success.

    Keynote speaking
    Larry is a highly experienced and gifted speaker. His rare sense of humor combined with his expertise make him a powerful yet compassionate conference speaker. His ability to bring clarity to complex ideas and make them interesting is a hallmark of his style. He has spoken before groups as large as 5,000 participants, has ben heard on radio, and has been a college commencement speaker at an MBA graduation.

    Programs | Workshops | training
    We have a commitment to three basic principles when designing workshops, programs, and training modules.

    3. Tailor EVERYTHING to the special needs of our clients.
    We are continually creating and generating the next delivery vehicles to provide clients with access to the most powerful ideas available. This is a competitive advantage. Below you you will find plenty of information about programs, workshops, and training seminars previously conducted. If you have a special need that doesn't seem to be addressed please contact us.
