Healthy Business, Happy Life

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:

  1. 1. Examine the symptoms
  2. 2. Diagnose the disease
  3. 3. Prescribe the treatment

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.

Executive Coaching

"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."

I want a Coach
