“I love helping companies and leaders improve their results. I founded Performance SolutionsMN Inc. 18 years ago having been a CEO for 8 years prior. Business building all starts with ‘putting the right talent in the right job the first time!’ When people don’t really know their God given talents, you have the problems of employee disengagement, lack of their own purpose let alone the companies, there is a lack of personal accountability and it is tough to coach results when a person isn’t using their God given talents to their fullest.”
