Our Approach

Can I take a moment to share the success secrets I've gained after 35+ years in the industry?

In that time, I've noticed patterns for success and patterns for failure across countless organizations --both for-profit and not-for-profit.

  • People are the most important and impactful resource any organization has. People determine the success of an organization. People can also be its greatest challenge.
  • Good decisions are crucial to success. While no one can claim to completely prevent every bad or questionable decision, EQFIT® uses a data-driven approach that informs and optimizes your decisions for the outcomes you want to see.
  • Every organization is different, each requiring insight into different individuals, groups, cultures, goals, and a variety of variables unique to that organization at that time.

EQFIT® developed a method we like to call
"Assess | Equip | Align | Succeed"



We start by extensively assessing the person, team, and/or organization.Through interviews, assessment tests, and observation, we get a well-rounded, deeply insightful view of the issue you're wanting to address.



Next, we use this data to customize a plan for Focused, Intentional Transformation (FIT). Through training, coaching, and consulting we "EQuip" your people and teams with the EQ tools they need to perform at the next level. Our FIT EQuipping process will upskill your people and enhance their talents via learning environments that are not only designed around how our brains naturally learn and retain information but also fit into people's very busy schedules.



As your people and teams learn these crucial skills, it's important to put them to practice them with forward-moving progress. In the Align stage, we track progress, refine, and make necessary adjustments to ensure alignment between employees, teams, and your organization's culture and strategy to deliver.



After we've outlined the future approach we've developed with you, your team, and/or your organization to maintain your EQ growth trajectory, you're well on your way to success! Go Team!
