You want your organization to thrive.

But there are numerous, complex issues to address…

business team

Are your people engaged?

Many organizations lack the clarity they need to keep its workforce productive and engaged in light of the unprecedented amount of change and ambiguity.

Organizational Assessment

Sometimes you need an outsider’s point of view. Problem areas that are negatively impacting your workforce and culture are difficult to identify from the inside. Our assessment process identifies areas that need special focus.

business discussion

Are your rising stars getting the attention they deserve?

Sometimes working with a coach can propel your high potentials to the next level and re-enlist your steady performers.


Everyone needs help addressing growth potential as well as blind spots. Coaching is an essential aspect of a leader’s journey to success. As Bill Gates said, “everyone needs a coach”. Coaching key leaders is an embedded strategy in most organizational consulting engagements.

  • Jeff analyzes an organization's ability to execute on its mission, both where it may be inadequate or where there is simply an opportunity to do better or at a larger scale and then provides leaders a map for improved business outcomes. He excels at executive coaching and at guiding teams through the kind of change management that leads to improved--and sometimes transformational--results.

  • Meeting and working with Jeff Strese has been a profound lesson in the value of human capital. His focus on talent development and organizational design is a graduate course in how to turn a business from one dependent on an individual to one driven by a team. Jeff is not just an effective consultant, but a brilliant teacher that would help any organization become an organization where motivated people can flourish.

  • I have known Jeff for over a decade, first in his capacity as head of HR at SMU, then in his work at Tolleson. Jeff is a great listener and has provided me with sound advice and encouragement in the numerous roles I have held at SMU. He understands what it takes to be an effective leader having been one himself and he knows how to get the best out of others. As head of HR he led significant change initiatives in which his calm approach was critical to their success.
