I always leave with something useful, some new information, or a new approach.

Lori Collea, Plato's Closet

Owner of the Plato's Closet consignment chain, Lori Collea discovered early on that the most well-meaning people in your life sometimes give you the worst advice. "Your family and friends will tell you what you want to hear, and René Haines will tell you what you don't want to hear." After three years of coaching and help from the peer advisory board, Lori well understands the value of neutral, professional advice based on experience and research.

The peer advisory board allowed Lori to be inspired by other business owners and receive feedback on some of her own ideas. "I always leave with something useful, some new information, or a new approach. Having somebody to relate to makes you feel less alone." Lori also found confidence in the realization that other business owners are searching for answers, too. She saw how René was helping each of them realize their potential and believe in themselves until they reached their goals.

"I'm not a money-minded individual. I'm more interested in doing the right thing with my business and leaving a legacy behind. I tell René that, and she helps me establish the right goals for what I want to do." For Lori to become a true mother hen to hordes of little Plato's Closet employee chicks, she had to find ways to let those employees grow. She sent her best employees to training workshops, and afterwards, they had more confidence to grow into the professionals she knew they could be.

Effective Communications

Communications are important in all aspects of life. However, in your business it serves as a critical device for success. What do your employees hear when you speak? Most managers dictate but true leaders guide their staff with their words.

Effective communication allows others to:

  • Understand the message, not just the words
  • Reduce conflict and increase understanding
  • Make others want to listen to you

Let us teach you how to use the power of words to get the desired results you've been missing in your company.

Team Building

A team can be identified as a group where members are focused on a joint goal or a group organized to work together.

Does either of these definitions explain your how employees operate? Team-building is a complex but rewarding job.

Effective teams deliver results which increase your bottom line? Let us help you build or strengthen your team's daily activities resulting in:

  • Creating a cohesive motivated team
  • Making individuals teams players
  • Using "multiplied power" to achieve lasting results
