A. Project Development Specialists (Start ups and turnarounds):
1. Start up Projects: (New business development) We offer a unique service to the small business sector: we specialize in the development of service-related projects that are new to the marketplace; services for which there are no existing business models. Our typical client is a successful small business owner or group (gross sales of less than $20 million) that already owns or has owned a number of profitable businesses and has a service-related project for which they need assistance in developing. In other words they have an idea which is new to the marketplace (often outside their historical area of expertise) and need assistance in picturing exactly what it (the new business) would look like. When you utilize our adjunct development and marketing services you are in business for your self, but not by your self.
2. Turnaround Projects: (Existing business development) We create new business models for existing businesses or divisions of those businesses that are either currently underperforming or need to expand more rapidly their growth. We assist existing projects by asking the principle or project manager, “If there were two of you, what else would you be doing with your time?” Generally the principle(s) are so busy managing their business that they don’t have the time or resources to grow their business. Our typical client is a small business owner or group has purchased a business that is failing or owns a business that is producing less than satisfactory results, but the client is confident that this business can succeed or produce better results. They have done all they know to do and now need assistance in answering this question, “What’s wrong with this picture; what’s absent or not working that preventing this project from being more successful?”

B. Business Leadership Training Workshop: “The Power of Perception”
How can a business increase its profit margins while struggling to cope with tightening budgets, downsizing of the workforce, demanding time constraints and an increasingly competitive, global market place? Our practical, street-smart workshop teaches organizations how to do more with less by training individuals how to augment their existing dimension of “Analytical Intelligence” with a measure of “Visual Intelligence.” By investing in the “intellectual capital” of the workforce the company increases its ability to see more clearly the path or course of action that’s most essential for meeting the needs of this workforce as well as the real needs of the organization its customers.
Our 8-hr. leadership development workshop teaches individuals how to increase their capacity to “see more and see better,” by demonstrating how to augment their existing dimensions Analytical Intelligence (assessing the facts) with a measure of Visusal Intelligence (grasping the meaning). We utlize a cross-disciplinary approach that combines elements from Perceptual Psychology, General Semantics Theory, and the fundamental principles of Gestalt Psychology and Visual Perception to address the 3 primary reasons that 90% of the workforce has difficulty with seeing clearly what’s most essential for meeting the needs of the organization, the workforce and the customer.
C. Personal Growth & Development Seminars: “Standing at the Crossroads - COME WHAT MAY”©
Our 8-hour public seminars are designed to provide a six-step, practical guide for individuals who have reached a crossroads in life, but lack a clear sense of direction, purpose and/or meaning. By “crossroads” we mean any of the many junctions in life where you find yourself at an impasse, facing a crisis over a relationship, career or spiritual path; but can’t see clearly which way to turn or which path to take. When you find yourself at a crossroads in life, filled with doubt and/or uncertainty about how to proceed, ask, “What’s absent that’s creating this void of insight and understanding, and hindering my ability to make forward progress?” The conscious effort to answer this “question” creates a sense of PURPOSE: the search; the quest; the longing to know the reality of what’s needed to fill the “void” and how to find it.
The depth of one’s longing determines the degree of their receptivity to the experience that’s most essential for bringing this “reality” into being; and the degree of their receptivity determines the nature and quality of the experience that will come to fill their void. The greater the “receptivity” the more self-evident becomes the DIRECTION; the ability to recognize the path or course of action that can best provide the lessons one needs to attain this “experience.” To embrace the experience that comes with any given “path” enables the individual to see clearly why these particular ideas, relationships and/or circumstances have come into their life; as well as what this means. With clarity of MEANING comes the insight and understanding necessary to fill the void and end the longing; the ability to proceed confidently and deliberately to the next “lesson,” the next crossroads in life.
