A business is like the human body. When healthy, the organs work together like the departments in a perfect business. If an organ of the body becomes diseased, symptoms may appear and we need a doctor.
Like a team of doctors for sick businesses, the professionals at Lighthouse have a simple and comprehensive approach to bring your business to optimal health and profits:
Lighthouse has a variety of examination and diagnostic tools such as personality assessments, employee surveys, and performance analyses that expose business disease. We also have treatment tools such as consulting, coaching, seminars and workshops on the topics of High Performance Leadership, Strategy, Teamwork, Trust, and Emotional Intelligence. Our research-based, time-tested organizational development tools provide the treatments to take your company to optimal health. We recommend an annual examination to prevent business disease.
We wanted to focus on patient care not reinventing the wheel of leadership training. Lighthouse Business Solutions was our answer.
Doug has a deep knowledge of business management and leadership needs. He’s been very helpful in finding solutions for me and my business when I felt stuck.
Your feedback during and after our meeting was clear and concise and outlined practical steps to improve my success and satisfaction with my business.
“I really appreciated the way Doug encouraged and lead the group to be so interactive. I found it to be insightful, inspirational, and FUN!”
I won’t hesitate to call on you and Lighthouse Business Solutions for assistance in the future.

"In large organizations having an executive coach is becoming a status symbol, as in, “The Company values me so much they’re willing to get me my own coach. Don’t you have one?”
The purpose of having an executive coach is to help you see things you can’t see, to provide an outside perspective with expertise to guide you to a better, more successful and fulfilling place. The best of the best can’t see themselves clearly, not even you. With the help of the Lighthouse Coaching Model, and third-party objective assessments, coaches at Lighthouse will illuminate the path to a brighter future."
Lighthouse Business Solutions has partnered with 360Solutions to offer many valuable assessments and survey tools that can be used for hiring the right employees, gaining insight from workgroups, and uncovering development opportunities for individuals and organizations. Over 25 years of research and development have gone into our employee assessment system.
