“I’m currently entering the last week of a 7 week Elegant Leader program with Scott and I must say that I’ve taken many leadership courses over the years and this is the first one that I’m truly sad is ending. Scott is, well, elegant. He’s also humble, down to earth and speaks in a language that means something to me, both professionally and personally.
Through his leadership I’ve learned so much about myself and things I was doing that were holding me back. After attending this course, I feel much calmer and secure about my role, my successes and my shortcomings. Thank you Scott for sharing your gift and for anyone on a journey of self-fulfillment and/or improvement, I don’t think you can go wrong here.” – Anita K, Lead System AnalystPlease follow and like us:

The importance of self-introspection on how to improve my behaviors to help others was the biggest impact so far. Since completing all of the modules, my group has realized a 12% increase in throughput and a scrap reduction by 28%. I’ve been able to apply real solutions that are giving me sustainable results. The Academy should be required for everyone in leadership!Please follow and like us:

Scott is a remarkable coach, advisor and person. He embodies everything that you would want in a coach/advisor for yourself, your leadership team, and your managers. He stands for nothing short of the highest levels of excellence and performance, which he has demonstrated in his own life and career. Whether it is his track record as a leader in business or the ways he contributes to his community, Scott has the substance and the internal grounding to keep you motivated and inspired while also developing creative new ways to solve your most pressing challenges. The way he shows up in life equals the substance he has with many best-practice toolkits and methodologies.
His range is amazing, from helping leaders become even better to helping teams perform better and helping you shape the culture of your organization in ways that directly correlate to results. I work with many coaches and put Scott in the top of the top because of who he is and his ability to get remarkable, measurable results. I can’t recommend him highly enough.Please follow and like us:
“A great leader encompasses compassion and courage of your job and your employees. If I’m going to lead them, then I must learn to learn to lead by correcting what’s not working and employ what does work under stress. His comment, ‘we all revert to the level of behaviors we’ve mastered under stress,’ really resonated with me. I think I’m a good leader when things are going well. What I’ve learned is when multiple priorities, deadlines and issues above and below me mount, then I do revert back to less than elegant leadership. The Academy gives me the skills I need to be my best!”Please follow and like us:
“Let me start with the Leaders Dashboard – the low-tech approach is giving me high-tech and high-touch results! I’m able to visually reinforce what I must stop, start, maintain and elevate as a leader during times of pressure and stress. Having the courage to stay focused on the principles Scott delivers has proven invaluable already. The Academy gives me a logical sequence to build my leadership from where it is to where is must go. My 4 Group Leaders have all improved throughput 105% to the point we’ve expanded capacity 13%. If you want to improve your environment and your leaders, then you’ve got to get the High-Performance Academy for your team and company.”Please follow and like us:
“Being able to gain knowledge and the sharing of ideas and approaches with my peers and other leaders in our organization in a safe environment was valuable to me. Since completing the Academy, we’ve reduced our FTE turnover from 90% to 38% and our engagement numbers went from 12% favorable to 54% favorable over the 12 months Scott’s been engaged with us. I highly recommend the Academy to anyone charged with shaping their organization.”Please follow and like us:
“Scott’s ability to relate and to speak specifically to how our business operates and how to adapt his style to our people in the Academy has been nothing short of amazing. He and his team did their homework to truly understand how we operate daily. The Academy gave me and my team great insights into how we can make changes that impact our performance and our lives. Our operations metric improvements are nothing short of amazing – FPY went from 94% to 99.8%, employee morale went from abysmal and worried about union incursions to over 54% engaged to now 73% engaged, turnover has dramatically reduced, and we went from losing $1M monthly for 9 months to now a $1.4M surplus. I can’t say enough about how on target this message has been for all of us.”Please follow and like us:
