How We Work
We don't train people, we engage them
Engaged people are aware, conscious of their surroundings, and curious enough to figure it out. Yet 65% of people are disengaged at work.
How do you quickly change that?
Business is about people, working with people,
making stuff for people.
B = P + P > S < P
The equation is simple. Engage your people, and they will take you anywhere you want to go.
We Wrote the Book

an exquisite tale."
- Jay Conrad Levinson, Author Guerrilla Marketing series of books

It's one thing to please the CEO, but what about the rest of the enterprise?
Here are real stories from CEOs, VPs, Managers, and Employees.
“CEO2 engages people in a way that ordinary management practice cannot. Every person in the company behaves differently than they did before. Their approach quickly helps the CEO align and engage people with the business plan at a level I have never seen before.”
Merritt Lutz, Former Chairman, Morgan Stanley Technology Holdings, NYC
"In a world where most acquisitions fail, CEO2 taught us how to integrate
12 companies in the past 9 years, successfully."
Mike Duran, CEO, Colibri Group, St Louis
"CEO2 has helped me create the kind of company that people want to work for and invest in. Their ability to generate enthusiasm and focus, combined with a reality-based, bottom-line approach to follow-through gives their work the one-two punch others are missing. Remarkably, their process is still making a difference nine years later."
E. Michael Thoben III, Former Chairman/CEO/President, Interlink Electronics
"CEO2 has a unique ability to take what might be and talk strategically with the CEO. They turn symptoms into strategy and help develop frameworks for execution. They brought us a process that we can use on any issue in a very inclusive way. And most importantly, they helped me instill the practice of servant leadership at every level in our organization. I’ve seen amazing development and blossoming of the people here. They feel loved and useful, and powerful. And that continues to translate into improved performance at every level in our firm.”
Alice Handy, Founder, Investure, LLC, Charlottesville, VA
“We all have our MBAs from Stanford and Kellogg. We know what’s going on in business. We read every book and have spent a lot of time as operators, so what could CEO2 possibly do for us? Well, when asked to look honestly, we had to admit we were running ourselves ragged and straining our home lives. After a Leadership Strategy Session that offered new insights that dramatically shifted our model, we signed up for a full engagement. Our firm grew from a $200 million private equity fund with no time for personal life to a billion-dollar fund with better relationships among the three partners, portfolio-company CEOs, general partners, and an engaged and powerful team aligned with our vision and BHAG. Most importantly, we've got happy families.”
Graham Weaver, CEO, Alpine Investors, San Francisco
