What if you could bring out the best in your team?

Vision, Purpose, Values, and Alignment are the cornerstones of organizational success. I help teams work together better, understand each other more, and best communicate with one another to enhance workflow, effectiveness, and efficiency.

Winning Consultations will work with you to determine what is right for your particular situation, customize the consultation, training, development, and implementation to meet your specific and unique organizational needs.

Together, we design an Action Plan that we can then implement and will keep you on track now and into the foreseeable future.

We work with teams in all industries, from large health-care, pharmaceutical, to non-profits, to universities, to athletic teams, and more. Through experience working with athletics, various corporate industries, higher education institutions, and non-profit organizations we understand what it takes to succeed at every level and across a bevy of industries.

We are a proud Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team and EverythingDiSC® Authorized Partner and Certified Trainer ready to help your organization reach its maximum potential.

  • Becoming a Better Leader

    Becoming the Best Leader helps leaders at all levels make the connection between their DiSC® style and leadership. This all-inclusive classroom and online program approaches leadership as a one-to-many relationship (as opposed to the one-to-one relationship explored in Everything DiSC® Management). With one unified model of leadership—Vision, Alignment, and Execution—Everything DiSC® WOL helps leaders understand their own leadership styles and how their tendencies may influence their effectiveness in specific leadership situations.
