Jim and Michelle have worked in various industries including manufacturing, housing, transportation, health care, senior living, academia, and technology. They worked for small family owned establishments, large corporations, privately held organizations, and publicly traded companies. They saw the same thing happen over and over again: management or ownership would promote great employees from within into leadership roles. Joyous announcements would be made, people would celebrate, everyone was happy. Six months later, the smiles were replaced with looks of concern. Maybe the new leader wasn't as good as people thought. Maybe they made the wrong choice. Conflict would be firmly established within the new leader's team. No one would communicate with each other. Team members would create their own goals and go off in different directions. No one would be on the same page. Disaster would follow. The new leader would often leave and the process would start over.
After witnessing this happen too many times, Michelle decided to do something about it. The problem wasn’t the new leader; they wanted to be successful. The problem was the lack of leadership training. Organizations weren’t providing the new leader with training in the new skills they needed to be successful in their new position. There was no focus on learning how to communicate as a team or how to build on the team members’ strengths.
Realizing this, Michelle developed new leader training programs for the organizations she worked in. She realized there was a true need in the world for training in the areas of leadership skills, communication skills, and team building. As a result, Jim and Michelle decided to start their own company that would focus on helping organizations and individuals grow from where they are to where they want to be.
