Having supported small and large businesses for over 15 years and studied and taught various management courses at Northern Arizona University, I understand the importance of strong management practices in the success of your organization. My mission is to help you identify areas of your business you want to strengthen and to provide you with the tools based on practitioner and academic research to reach your goals. Having been a young professional in a management role early in my career, I realized how important strong, research-based management practices are to individual, team, and organizational success.
Your business’ culture defines your success. Moving to a more positive culture, one that supports learning, caring, and purpose can increase employee engagement by as much as 76%, a major drive of productivity. A culture that aligns with your mission, values, and strategy motivates your customers, allowing them to see the true purpose of the organization. A high-performing culture based on key management practices will allow your team to deliver value for you customers and achieve higher results.
Decisions can be challenging; what is the right thing to do? Whether it is using business and people analytics tools with your data or making academic business research digestible and usable in your firm, we will help you make informed decisions that will take out the guess work.
Resources are limited: people resources, time resources, financial resources and more. Productivity is about making the most of limited resources to drive growth. We use culture, research, and other management tools to accelerate your and your team’s productivity.
