What I Do
Helping Businesses and Leaders Achieve HEALTHY Growth
What will make your business successful? Ultimately, it is the people around you doing the right things each day. This is accomplished by having both a laser focus on a common strategy and the ability to manage the changes that happen every day in your business. HEALTHY requires both a clear strategy and great leadership.
My expertise is in partnering with leaders of small- and medium-sized businesses to help them establish a plan for their future and the discipline/leadership to effectively move towards their goals. I partner with a network of solution providers to bring the expertise you need, while still providing the consistency of having a trusted partner that understands your business and people.
Here is what some of my clients are saying:
I have done many strategic plans in my career, and the EOS® process is the best I have experienced because it helped our leadership team develop the Traction to effectively execute on our plans. As a facilitator, Scott’s leadership of our planning session was off the charts effective. A unique benefit of working with Scott is that he teaches while he facilitates, and I actually learned to be a more effective leader/facilitate more by watching him work.

We have been on EOS® for over a year now, and it has been a game changer for us. When we made the internal decision that we wanted to implement EOS® in the spring of 2014, we knew that going through the process on our own would be difficult and that having an Implementer would drastically increase our odds of success. We reached out to Scott and he accepted to help us go through the entire implementation process as well as facilitate our full adoption of EOS® on an on-going basis throughout the past year. Scott has been a key partner to Worksighted for 4 years now and has helped our team with coaching and leadership development. His knowledge of EOS® and his passion for working with growing, entrepreneurial companies, has been a great combination and a perfect fit for us. Scott’s facilitation has made the process fun, engaging, and honest. He is 100% responsible for our ability to rapidly implement EOS® and embrace it company-wide.

We have worked with Scott to develop our leadership team, with the goal of achieving healthy growth – from both a financial and cultural perspective. He is a skilled facilitator, and we appreciated how he allowed our team to spend extra time when we needed it, and still keep moving so we achieved both a plan and the traction to get it done. The other benefit of working with Scott is that we developed as leaders while we worked. He is skilled at integrating coaching/learning into the process of planning, and that provided an additional return on the time we invested in working with him. I highly recommend Scott as a partner in your growth.
COO – DSA International
He is a skilled facilitator and helped us think through some critical aspects of our business and formulate action plans to implement the ‘rocks’ generated by the team. His work with second stage growth companies was particularly helpful for us as we continue to manage the explosive growth in our startup business and look to put processes in place to help us profitably scale our business going forward. I strongly recommend Scott as a business partner/facilitator for any CEO and leadership team.
