An Executive Coach helps an individual reach his or her professional goals.
Unlike a counselor, working with a executive coach is not therapy. Your
executive coach will keep you on track, help you maintain focus, and stretch
your skills and talents so you can achieve the results you want.
Business Consultants help organizations improve performance through analysis
of current business practices and the development of improvement plans.
Colbert Seminars Consulting uses specialized tools and skills that are applied

“Cornell has led his team to achieve process improvement results through a variety of Lean tool applications. These
results include facilitating a team effort to redesign the production line which resulted in delivery times that were

of successfully creating a Lean culture evident by high employee engagement and satisfaction, daily Kaizen and excellent
customer satisfaction scores.”

new role, is not easy or natural. To learn those new skills and
