Take Your Organization to the Next Level

Core Services

  • Coaching

    Whether it’s one-on-one coaching, or coaching workshops for managers, coaching principles and practices can give people the competitive edge that’s so often needed for peak performance.

  • Implementing ERP

    Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business process management software that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business and automate many back office functions related to technology, services and human resources.

  • Leader and Team Transitioning

    Beginnings, whether through changes in leadership, team members, or a new start up, represent a time of opportunity. SGC helps organizations answer the many questions that arise in the face of change, such as: What does leader expect? What are the goals and objectives going forward? and How long do we have to get organized before our business results are impacted?

  • Managing Differences

    Differences in the workplace are all around us. Research suggests that we spend as much as half of our day dealing with conflict situations. All too often clients tell us that managing differences is “not worth it,” and then reluctantly admit that they lack the skills to effectively settle differences. Our goal at SGC Consulting is to help clients determine which differences are “worth dealing with.”


  • Strategic Planning

    An effective strategic planning process must focus on execution and review as well as issue and strategy formulation. Our methodology is based on over 35 years of our hands-on experience and research in helping organizations understand, plan, and execute the activities that take them to the next level.

  • Supporting Change

    Building knowledge and skills around change and transition is critical to teams and individuals in today’s ever-changing world. The old adage, “The only constant is change,” has never been more true than in the climate of 21st century business. We at SGC Consulting have designed two learning experiences that provide awareness and understanding in dealing with change, transition and resistance.

  • Team Building

    Highly effective teams have the skill sets necessary to operate in a collaborative environment while sharing relevant factual, conceptual, and emotional information. Our team learning experiences help teams develop the skills they need to deliver great results.
