Building transformative leaders & effective teams

Our goal is to create strong leaders and teams that work cohesively together

We have programs and Assessment Tools to help get your Leaders & Teams stronger.

Probably nothing can impact an organization’s effectiveness more than improving the performance of its teams. People gain their identity and find meaning from their teams. We have a host of solutions for improving communications and reducing conflict in teams.

We have decades of experience training managers and developing leaders at all levels, from first line supervisors to strategic leaders. Starting with thorough assessments to providing the tools your leaders need to be their fullest selves. These solutions may mean developing strategic thinking, or may be as simple as improving their mechanics of running meetings and providing feedback.

26 years of experience

Our team spent our careers as military leaders. Our job required us to build leaders, and we are prepared to take on your organization's challenges.

Defining success

What does success mean to you?

You cannot be successful without solid leaders and teams that work.

Recommendations

I had the pleasure of working with Don as a subordinate under his leadership. He was consistently devoted in ensuring his staff and leaders were mentored through weekly professional development meetings. He instilled leadership skills in the younger lieutenant's, ensuring they had a mentor to be successful in their own careers. He is a dedicated leader and mentor that always strived for success in his subordinates and the betterment of the organization as a whole

I am proud to write a recommendation for COL Don Potoczny. I served with COL Potoczny in Iraq as Joint Planner in United States Forces-Iraq in the Iraqi Security Forces Training Cell for one year. During that timeframe, COL Potoczny was the Deputy Chief, and he was a source of mentorship and calmness within out very high OPTEMPO shop. His technical and tactical expertise was invaluable in assisting the team to providing the best analysis for our leadership to make decisions. I'm now retired after 23 years of service, and I can say that COL Potoczny was one of the few leaders who actually listened and genuinely cared for his subordinates.

Don is a tremendous talent and leader who inspires those around him to achieve exceptional results every time. He is a visionary who sees the bigger picture and instinctively knows how to get the most from every member of the team. I always trusted him with the most difficult projects, and he never disappointed!
Brian McKiernan
Major General, US Army (retired)
Colonel Potoczny brings energy and enthusiasm to everything he can influence. There wasn't anything in our organization that did not see improvement while he was in command: the mission readiness of our battalion in Korea, the meaningful mentorship of junior officers, our maintenance and supply discipline, and even the efficiency of writing our emails. Colonel Potoczny not only continuously reads and improves his understanding of the organization, but seeks out expertise from others to grow. He takes the time to mentor and teach those who work for him, seeking out the strengths in others to find the right person for the job. Colonel Potoczny is a leader that I am proud to have worked for and taught me innumerable lessons about being a better leader myself.
