I continue to do the work I have for several decades with very large (think Fortune 100) organizations. Most of this work has been done in conjunction with colleagues and under the names of their respective businesses. These are people I have had relationships with for decades and really they are my clients and I serve their clients.

Ledgerwood Consulting is my individual practice which has focused more on mid sized businesses. If I look at my current client list and think of what I am trying to do I would say the following fits most of those I am in a relationship with they are less than 250 employees and less than $250M in revenue.

I have also developed a practice focused on small business owners. Here I am talking less than $25 M in revenue and 100 employees. Some are even in the single digit $M range. Why them?

Individual Coaching

Individual Coaching

One on One Coaching is increasingly a part of many individual’s professional development. Our work an individual involves conducting an initial assessment, including using appropriate instruments and interviews, followed by a joint planning session with the individual.

From this comes a plan with specific short and long term objectives.  Coaching from us is just one of the ways that the individual gets support in their change efforts.

We are qualified to use a wide variety of assessment instruments and processes including: Meyers Briggs (MBTI), Interstrength Associates products (including Interaction Styles, Temperament Patterns and Cognitive Dynamics) and all of Human Synergistics products.  See our section on Assessment for more information.

More and more we find that individuals are developing and implementing development programs beyond what their employer provides.  We work with clients that are funding their own development programs as well as clients who are being funded by their organizations.

Meeting Facilitation

People report that over 70% of the meetings they attend do not accomplish their objectives and are not satisfying events for them.

Well executed meeting don’t just happen – they take through planning and skillful execution.  We provide services for:

Defining Meeting Purpose and Objectives

Designing the Meeting Structure to Match the Objectives

Insuring the Right People are Invited

Determining Roles and Responsibilities of all involved

Avoiding Scope Creep During the Meeting

Supporting Clear Communication

Capturing Commitments

Determining Next Steps

We both conduct training in how to do all of the above as well as facilitate meetings for our clients.  In many cases we combine the two and create a “just in time” training program where the client builds their capabilities while getting “real work” done.
