Tom has added tremendous value to me and my leadership team. We started with the 2-day StratOp Workshop which was a great way to get the team engaged, bought-in and ultimately, on the same page. We continue to engage Tom to help us stay focused on what is most important and to act on the vital few areas that have the greatest impact on the business. David Jones

CEO, Yesler

Tom lead our management team through a series of exercises adapted to fit our phase of business. It was enlightening to look at the company from many vantage points, and make decisions as a team about what the next 3 years will look like. We are starting 2018 with a crystal clear target, and initiatives to execute on it. It’s been so helpful to have a map, a path, and for that matter be clear on what mountain we’re climbing. Greg Bear

President, Bear Group

We hired Navigate the Journey to facilitate our annual retreat last year and it was revolutionary for our culture and our business. Using the StratOp methodology, Tom helped us get a lot of skeletons out of the closet, and deal with some unsaid things that had been looming. Using StratOp was also incredible in that it helped us map out a plan for where our agency is headed and to drill down into What’s Important Now (or WIN initiatives). Chad Paris

We utilize Tom & Traci to facilitate our leadership team strategic planning retreats & companywide retreats with our fully distributed team of over 40 people. Navigate the Journey’s value is not just in leading our retreats, but also in following up to ensure we execute the plan we created during our retreats – if it weren’t for Tom checking in on us we would have quickly fallen back into our client-only focus.  If you are looking for an outside coach and advisor to help your company determine how to focus and grow as a company, as a team, or as a leader, then I highly recommending reaching out to Tom or Traci. Jody Grunden

CEO, Summit CPA Group

We are a fully remote team and gather yearly for a team retreat. We brought Tom in this year to guide us through the process of identifying areas we can improve, and charting a path to execute on that improvement. It was very well received by my team who sincerely appreciated being part of the conversation. Tom involved everyone, even the shy folks, in crafting the future direction of our company. We’re excited now and ready to take things to the next level. Carson McComas

President, Fuel Made

Tom has been a big influence in my life through his wisdom, guidance, and his ability to partner and come alongside our business and our leadership has been invaluable. More a partner, less a vendor. I recommend Tom to any organization looking for strategic planning, guidance, and leadership/team development. Dusty Gulleson

CEO, eResources
