With 20+ years of experience as a CEO

When we started working with Shannon, one of the first thing she told us was that we didn’t have a defined culture. She said it was essential for us to have in order for our team members and our customer to know what we STAND FOR! After lots of hard work with Shannon and as a team, we have created a culture that we are proud of. And our people are proud of it too!

CEO and Leadership Team Coaching

We work with CEO's and their leadership team to help them grow at an annual rate of 20% year over year.  We have achieved this through applying our own 20 years of experience as a CEO coupled with years of coaching CEO's to apply a 'Scaling Up' framework that is based on the best business thought leaders of our time.  We grow CEO's and their leadership teams professionally and personally.

We work with companies that are $5M-$100M in revenue and who want to scale at an annual rate of 20%.  These companies are Gazelles.  This coaching practice focuses on Gazelles and companies who want to be Gazelles.

We will partner with your business to ensure the areas of focus - strategy, execution, cash, people – get the attention they require at the time they require it in order to grow.
