We help contractors grow profitably by focusing relentlessly on all aspects of talent development. We were founded in 2005 with the primary objective of helping contractors effectively navigate the changing dynamics of talent including the shortage, millennials and succession.

Leadership Tools: Recruit, Develop, and Retain. Contractors who master their talent processes will dominate tomorrow.

We exist to help contractors build stronger businesses for the next generation by leveraging talent, technology and capital.

Our philosophy is simple but powerful: Talented people form the foundation of every great company, and if you grow people, you will grow equity.

Our hands-on approach provides a valuable third-party perspective, unbiased facilitation, training, and specialty expertise.


There are no perfect or simple solutions to this complex problem. We have learned a lot of lessons and continue to build our capabilities while serving our clients every day.

What did lack of talent or the wrong talent cost you last year?


Please schedule a call with our team and let’s learn more about each other. We are not the right fit for every contractor and we will be transparent if that is the case.
