Our journey started with a dream in 1986. Our founder, Rick Giombetti, was enjoying a successful career in corporate America managing the Human Resource function of a large privately held food service distributor. Frustrated with the lack of focus on leadership, he decided to start a firm with the sole purpose and mission of helping PEOPLE grow.

Today that purpose and mission hasn’t change one bit. Whether, our work takes us into pre-employment assessment, leadership training & development, team building, talent sourcing & acquisition, conflict resolution, strategic business coaching, M&A consulting or a few other areas of expertise, the foundation to all of them is personality and behavior.

Our philosophies are rooted in people, which differ from most professional consulting firms. Our goal is to inspire you; to make you the best you can be. Our goal is NOT to make you or your organization more money, that’s a bi-product. We know and have proven for years that if we make individuals, teams, and entire cultures excellent, it ultimately results in increased morale, productivity, efficiency, and yes profitability. Ideas or products provide businesses opportunity, but people make them great.

If you’re considering partnering with our team there’s a few things you should know:
  • We are NOT flashy technology people so don’t expect flash over substance.
  • We shoot straight.
  • We tell individuals, teams, and business owners alike what they NEED to hear not what they WANT to hear.
  • We stand for morals and integrity in everything we do and will not bend or sacrifice them for anything.

    We believe people are the strongest assets and most valuable part of any business.

    If your organization doesn’t subscribe to the same core values then we may not be the right “fit” for you. We look toward developing long term relationships with clients who are compatible with our philosophies. We pride ourselves on partnering with our clients long-term, rather than working on a sole project.

    Our dedicated team of professionals, led today by Rick’s son Ross, are extremely passionate about what they do. With Rick’s advice and guidance still in our ears and minds today, our firm will continue to operate and support our clients across any industry in an effort to make them WORLD CLASS.
