Poor management skills cost companies huge amounts of money in retraining and low efficiency. Gallup found that 50% of employees left their job "to get away from their manager to improve their overall life at some point in their career."

Great leaders have higher engagement, which leads to higher productivity. Gallup's analysis has shown that the quality of a manager accounts for 70% of the variance in team engagement.

Average players want to be left alone. Good players want to be coached. Great players want to be told the truth. - Doc Rivers

Are we actually meeting our goals? Creating a long strategic plan, a short-term plan and goal setting is the best way to start, but we only reach success by verifying that we are truly accomplishing what we set out to do. We need to determine whether we are being TRULY effective and at what level.

Never mistake activity for achievement. - John Wooden

Emotion addresses the symptoms and does NOT solve the problem, but logical analysis solves the root cause of the problem.

An elite coach I knew would often say, "You've got to get your MIND right." The best plan in the world is useless if no one believes it enough to throw themselves behind it. Most people will not go the extra mile until they know "What is in it for me?" Motivating your team may be the best investment that you can make.

You can have the most talented people in the world, but if they do not buy-in, believe in where you are going and work hard to do what is needed to get there, you are just wasting a lot of time and money on a path to being average.

Great accomplishments in business don't result from huge magical leaps, but rather the acquisition and use of new skills and products one person at a time. It's the same way we eat the elephant or climb a mountain, 1 step at a time.

Our people are our most valuable resource. Empowering them in their development by giving them powering A Single Simple Tool & Then MOST IMPORTANTLY Learning How To Use It!


Knowledge for the sake of knowledge is NOT the Key, knowledge that is practical and you can apply it in your life is the Knowledge the changes EVERYTHING!

Executive Director - Idea Center


Through his service Kevin has helped to design a system that our team utilizes when determining eligibility and viability of an Entrepreneur's idea. As a result the Center's resources are more responsibly allocated and there are definite points that an un-qualifying Entrepreneur can work to improve. The system helps to serve as guidelines for what it takes to get started. (testimonial references work completed for the ND IDEA Center)

With his diverse background and skillset, he is able to synthesize seemingly disparate bits of information in ways that make it useful to solving the task at hand.


Engineering Manager Bismarck, Bobcat Company


Kevin was not only detail oriented but he could also see the big picture of how the machine we were working on fit into the capabilities, mission statement and objectives of the Company. He was also very entrepreneurial and was quick to see the business potential of various ideas.

Kevin’s talent, diligence, inventive resourcefulness, and sense of humor made working with him a wonderful experience. Many people, including myself, find his enthusiasm and dedication both inspiring and motivating.


Plant Manager, Samuel Pressure Vessel Group


Kevin is a true team builder and contributor. He has great abilities in areas of critical thinking, problem solving and development. 


Account Manager, Certified Power Inc.


I witnessed first hand Kevin’s gift. Kevin had the members of the group document the “issues” which they claimed were causing poor production, low moral and high frustrations.   The groups combined list covered the white board with sticky notes.  Kevin addressed each issue, one by one, probing, yet guiding the group with clarifying questions.  Within a few hours, the list was narrowed from several hundred complaints and concerns to a handful of targeted concerns which could easily be managed.  The entire group was beaming with the results.


Mixing Area Manager - Toyo Tires


Kevin is a Professional Engineer with an MBA and it is apparent. He is well versed in both engineering and business and is a personable, dedicated and reliable professional.
