The Pinnacle Program is a holistic, one-on-one executive development process that enables leaders to sustain breakthrough performance in today's ultra-challenging business environment. It is Executive Development for the 21st Century.


It’s a work effectiveness program unlike any other because every session is tailored to address the professional needs and personal interests of your key executives. This holistic approach enables your most influential people to develop both the acumen and the resilience to power the growth of your company – as strategic leaders and compelling role models.


• Team dynamics and motivation
• Strategic prioritization
• Information overload
• Office politics
• Establishing healthy habits
• Limited control of schedules
• Self-image and confidence issues
• Poor nutrition
• Sleep deprivation
• Lack of quality family time
• Client relationships
• Interpersonal skills
• Entertaining and extensive travel


Yes. We guarantee it.


Because a valued executive is, of course, a whole person. And your executive's abilities and overall performance are fueled — and consistently influenced — by factors and circumstances which frequently fall outside the workplace.

Take, for example, a sudden change in health or at home. Either is almost certain to impact your executive’s performance, creating an understandable conflict of priorities. By teaching your executives to plan for, incorporate, manage and prioritize changes in critical life areas, they can maintain the bandwidth needed for maximum performance every day.


In addition to enhancing executive performance and leadership, our program serves as a tool to attract and retain key talent. This extra effort and attention communicates, in no uncertain terms, your company’s commitment to optimize and retain your brightest stars.


Good health is the foundation of superior performance. As such, It’s frequently the starting point for the Pinnacle Program. These tailor-made regimens help your executives establish lasting habits that enhance confidence, energy, appearance and reduce health risks.


Frankly, yes. Though we specialize in high-stress, change-oriented work environments, our highly customized process has proven successful for a wide array of business models — from multi-national professional service firms and Fortune 100 corporations to small businesses.


Upon completion of the Pinnacle Program, your executives will:

  • Be capable of achieving and sustaining higher levels of performance
  • Be committed to expanding their comfort zones to embrace new opportunities and challenges
  • Have sustainably higher energy and enthusiasm
  • Possess a greater ability to focus upon — and better implement — key plans and goals

  • Be fully equipped to create new business building programs and initiatives
  • Have a clearer sense of personal purpose and goals
