Our Services

If you are like most of our clients, you are seeking to build and maintain a satisfied, loyal customer base.  This enables you to maximize the stability of your business.  “Customers” can  be clients, patients, physician, students or consumers, constituents, vendors, virtually anyone depending on your  organization to deliver its product or service.  To build and maintain a stable customer base, business owners need to assure performance excellence, to assure not only a satisfying experience, but a memorable, noteworthy one.

In seeking performance excellence, we work with you in three major areas of your business: Strategy, People and Processes. You are the expert in your business, not us, therefore,  you know your own operation best. Consequently we generally do not get involved in the technical or the operational side of your business.  With a focus on development and not simply training, we help organizations maximize the potential in their organization and to enhance the skills and knowledge that already exists.  Development programs are customized to meet each organizations objectives in the following areas of concentration:

Strategy Development and Planning

Just as a roadmap helps a driver identify the best route between two points, the strategic plan is the best way for you to ensure that the future you desire for your business becomes reality.  It is the process of thinking about and envisioning the desired future and the growth that must be realized to create your future.  A strategic plan is the cornerstone of building a successful, enduring business.  It is the roadmap for your business. 

Journey’s Coaches can facilitate you through the strategic planning process enabling you to:

  • Focus energies on creating your desired future
  • Become a vision-driven company that significantly outperforms their competitors
  • Guide decision-making – making otherwise confusing decisions clear and simple
  • Align day-to-day activities with long-range objectives and vision
  • Prioritize activities - Focus on the important, not just the urgent
  • Identify key performance measurements to manage your business’ success

Executive Coaching  

Through our Development Coaches, Journey strives to help individuals achieve their personal goals, by identifying short term and long-term objectives and necessary results in both planning and performance. These results can be accomplished through a collaborative partnership between each individual client and the development coach, as they identify not only the goals, but also the obstacles and all possible solutions to reaching their goals.

Journey’s coaches work with clients to explore each client’s personal meaning of success and create their personal road map to reach their desired destination.

Typically Coaching clients engage in approximately six months of service, which includes a combination of an appropriate Leadership Development process, and a minimum of three months of weekly coaching interactions to assist the client to focus on personal goals in their roles in both family and work life.

Organizational Development

Our development programs cover the four ingredients needed for unlimited success at business and at home: attitude development, discovery of ones personal meaning of success, human relations,  and goal setting and achievement.  We don’t focus on training, “the process of teaching someone a new skill,” our primary focus is on development, “the process of getting people to use and enhance the skills they already have.”  Areas of concentration:

    • Leadership Development
    • Management Development
    • Supervisor Development
    • Customer Loyalty
    • Time Strategies
    • Sales Development
    • Executive Leadership
    • Entrepreneurial Leadership and Strategic Thinking

Assessment and Measurement

Innovation and the ability to respond quickly to rapidly changing markets, technologies, and customer demands depend upon aligning strategy, people, and processes. Does Alignment exist in your organization?   Rather than guess, which disconnects exist in an organization, we use assessment tools geared to helping you pinpoint strengths and limitations, so that goal directed actions can be taken.
