About us

We Develop Front Line Teams, Leaders and Supervisors

Our Mission

To provide manufacturing and warehouse organizations access to cost-effective and readily available coaching and training solutions that enable the personal and professional development of their frontline employees and leaders

How we engage

Organizations work with us to sustain or improve the way that people interact and work together.

We respect the current state, identify the desired state and develop leaders, employees, and teams to help achieve that state.

Our clients generally engage us

  • When looking to provide development opportunities for their front line employees and supervisors.
  • When looking to take their existing working relationships to the next level by placing a focus on their front line employees and supervisors.

How we deploy

We love to teach first in workshop settings (Virtually or In-Person). This approach serves multiple purposes. 

  • Keeps your cost in check  as you can utilize group rates
  • Allows us to build a relationship with your teams before investing in us for the long term
  • Allows you to see a return on investment prior to contracting us for future work.

We are based on the ground in the following areas

  • Wisconsin (Kenosha area)
  • Illinois border (Lake Forest area)
  • Southwest Florida (Fort Myers area)

We serve the rest of the United States via travel or our virtual platforms
