Our Philosophy

It’s really quite simple. We call it T3 – Tell The Truth. It is at the core of everything we do – from assessments to executive coaching. After all, if you are not focusing on what is really true about your processes, your teams, your associates, yourself, you can’t possibly do what is required to be your best.

I recently participated the The Emotionally Intelligent Manager training. The day following the training, I had a health screening that showed my blood pressure at a 3 year low. I attribute a lot of this result to the skills learned during the training.

... It also helps to have a great consultant. Some of the Clayton Homes success is due to the impressive leadership development work of industrial-organizational psychologist Vergil Metts and the superb team at Impact Associates.
