We work on three things.

Culture is vital to high-performance, but it's not directly actionable.
We help clients make changes in three areas to shift culture and improve performance.

Engage workers in safety
'Compliance' and 'care'

There is no better way to engage your team than committing to eliminate worker injury. We help leaders at all levels set an example, set expectations and send people home safely every day.

Align teams to create results
Everyone on the same page

Few things waste more time, effort and energy than mis-alignment at the top. Our Align and Commit Workshops create shared understanding, clear expectations and a specific plan of action.

Develop leaders to reach people
Top-down and bottom-up.

Culture occurs during daily interactions with our boss. Our Front-line Leadership Development Programs teach the 'soft' skills required to influence how people think, talk and perform.

We keep it simple.

You don't need to re-invent the wheel.

We help you do the things you already do, but in a way that engages people.
Small things, done consistently, at strategic moments, can have big results.

Mindset
Choose a powerful attitude.
Mission
Enroll others by talking about 'why'.
Relationships
Invest in connections and conversations.
Habits
Influence through daily behavior.
Rituals
Use routine activities intentionally.
We make a difference.

"Unlike other consultants I've worked with, Greg has held senior leadership positions himself, and his advice is grounded in first-hand experience. He combines credibility with a high degree of integrity and commitment to the success of his clients, making him an effective partner."

VP, Semiconductor Manufacturer

"Andy was instrumental in building strong relationships and fostering open communication within our team and our contractors. He is a dynamic speaker and excellent workshop leader. His support as a coach and thought-partner was invaluable."

Director, Energy Company

"The Humanus program has changed the way I see my job. It's really about getting people thinking. Andy helped me learn how to connect with my crew."

Foreman, Construction Contractor

“Your work has opened the door to build stronger relationships in our organization that has helped us address issues in quality, in the sequencing of our work, and in the communication of information. The engagement has been more of a Leadership Development Program for us, than a Safety Program."

Director of Quality, Aerospace

"Greg brings a unique combination of understanding large organizations and projects, on a technical level, and the more subjective and equally important leadership and organizational elements (the human side.) Greg has excelled in helping companies in their journey to develop a culture of care and concern, and a recognition that all accidents are avoidable."

COO, EPC Contractor

“The workshop I attended touched me deeply, like very, very few events have in the past. As a result, I am re-invested in my company. This has the potential to change the organization and the way we do business."

Director, Aerospace Manufacturer

"When I first heard about working with a consultant, I was concerned. I have come to see your consultants as passionate, talented and patient. I see light bulbs going off everywhere and seeing folks acting and behaving differently."

Director of Safety, Aerospace Manufacturer

"You gave us the inspiration and the tools. You are changing the world. What you are doing is making a huge difference. Our people are happier working here as a result. This would not have been possible without your help."

Director, Manufacturing Company

"That was one of the best workshops I've ever attended. We talked about real issues for once, and it wasn't just talk. I'm going to use this stuff tomorrow."

Foreman, Mechanical Contractor

"You guys never once made us feel stupid or wrong. I appreciate the way you talked about the stuff that makes us great. Sure, we need to get better, but we are doing some stuff right."

Construction Manager, Contractor

"Andy is very engaging. He moves around and has you moving around so you’re ready for what he’s saying and ready to take it in. Andy gets it. He speaks the same language as our crews and really draws out the best ideas and thoughts of our people so they can really help themselves."

Dan Heichelbech, CEO, TCM

"Andy does a great job exploring the “why” of construction safety. He is engaging and keeps people’s attention. His message around the absolute necessity of field leadership to drive safety – and his encouragement to get participation from the audience made it not only meaningful, but fun."

Ryan Hough, Director Operational Excellence, McKinstry

"Andy engaged his audience more than any speaker I’ve ever seen. He keeps the pace moving, but hangs on the important points. He brings personal experience and first-hand knowledge that lend credibility to the points he makes. He’s transparent and honest which makes him approachable and ‘human’."

Travis Baker, Vice-President, Andersen Construction

"I appreciate the way Andy uses real world scenarios and personal stories to help the audience connect with the points he makes. Andy does a great job talking with and engaging the audience rather than speaking to them. Very interactive!"

Clint Valiton, Vice-President, OEG Inc.

"I appreciate how refreshing Andy’s speeches are. He delivers in a very easy to follow way; his speeches are interactive and by the end of it you feel like improving yourself and the way you work with your team."

Patricia Bottari, Principal, Safety Matters Training Institute

"Andy showed us how to engage people in fun and meaningful conversations that improve teamwork and results. If you want another stale, canned safety training, Andy is the wrong guy!"

Rick McMurry, Director of HSE, P+C Construction

"Andy talks with people – not at them. He is very skilled at getting the audience to participate in the conversation. Andy is not a passive presenter. It is amazing to watch Andy turn a roomful of competitors into peers ready to collaborate with one another. Andy connects with his audience! He does his research, has great stories, and delivers information his audience can use in their everyday life."

Karen Blythe, Executive Director, SafeBuild Alliance

"I enjoy the way Andy engages his audience. He gets people out of their seats, interacting with each other. He has you learn about the topic by discussing it, rather than listening to him. If you are looking for an uplifting, interactive speaker who is very engaging, fun, and passionate about his topics, Andy is your guy!"

Heidi Peterson, AGC – Oregon-Columbia Chapter

"Andy took a difficult topic and made it real and applicable to our work. Be prepared to be involved. Andy does not present from a podium! Your people will get a lot out of Andy’s presentations."

Dennis Barlow, AGC – Oregon-Columbia Chapter

"Andy provides memorable and actionable ideas. He is dynamic and inspiring; working a room in such a way that you feel engaged and connected. He shares the stage by talking with you; not at you. He brings a genuine desire to serve his audience."

Karen Natzel, CEO, K-Communications

"The thing I found most-useful in Andy’s talks was how he engages the audience to meet them where they’re at. He recognizes the dynamics and challenges we face in industry by relating his principles/perspectives to the common interests/norms of the audience. Andy’s passion for front-line leadership is immediately felt. His infectious approach and authenticity grabs the interest of the group."

Jason Englebrecht, Safety Director, McInstry

"The best testament to Andy’s effectiveness is that I continually hear busy, distracted professionals who heard Andy speak three or four months ago still talking about him, in spite of everything else they have on their respective plates."

Brett Phillips, Principal Consultant, BSI EHS Services and Solutions
