Case Studies That Show You What’s Possible

This portfolio of client success stories will give you a good sense of the kind of individuals I work with, the depth in which I work, and the outcomes that are available as a result.

Lisa Everest

A self-proclaimed perfectionist gives herself permission to take chances and starts a line of business that has grown to over $10 million in profit.

Situation:
Lisa had extremely high standards, was particularly self-analytical and terribly hard on herself as a result. She’d demonstrated great leadership in the technical aspect of her role and was a well-respected accountant in the large organization she worked for.

She was charged with “breaking the mould” in order to grow a fledgling new line of the business. She also had a very young family, was the primary wage earner and felt she couldn’t afford to make a mistake in case she’d lose her job. More
 

Tony Goodale

An assertive, decisive leader rebuilds a relationship that helps create a sales increase of over $250 million.

Situation:
Tony was a very assertive and capable leader who had no problem speaking his mind. Confrontation was something he experienced far more often than he liked. The department he led held the power to approve or decline large deals proposed by internal clients.

When these factors were combined with a headstrong, “freewheeling” internal customer that didn’t want to play by the guidelines, as well as difficult employees in both departments, a frustrating relationship emerged. It had begun to feel like an “us-verses-them” situation. Morale was low, productivity wasn’t where they wanted it to be and the profits were suffering as a result. More

 


Laura Richards

An extremely bright up-and-comer gets her spark back, breaks through difficult circumstances and takes her branch from 27th place to 9th in three months.

Situation:
Laura had been working in the insurance industry for number of years and wanted to be more proactive in growing her career. She was lacking some confidence but also questioning her commitment.

In addition, she had suffered from some health problems that resulted from an accident some years earlier. She was frustrated with how long it was taking to resolve itself and it was affecting her outlook. More
 

Darryl Alexander

A tentative leader steps into his potential, takes a senior role in the company he works for and then starts two others.

Situation:
Darryl had talent and was frustrated with his existing role in the organization. He had been with his employer for seven years. The president, although brilliant technically, was a terrible people manager. The frustration Darryl felt from that relationship was compounded by the fact his role no longer provided the challenge and enjoyment he wanted.

Despite the long hours, he felt he was now “coasting” mentally. He was burnt out, fed up and not sure what to do next. More
