About Our Mission-The Definition of Excellence
Our definition of excellence extends beyond mere profit margins and market trends. We believe in enhancing the individual, spurring achievement not only in business but in life. Our clients are guided to create a space in which to clearly define who they are so that they can take their rightful role within the organization.
For our clients, career success is measured by more than just job titles. Success is the existence of a purpose-driven life in which their work is consistent with their identity and values.
About Our Founder-Jim White, PhD
The methods behind our success is firmly based on the work of our founder, Dr. Jim White. Jim first found his entrepreneurial spirit at age five when he created his first business-collecting and selling Coke bottles to help support his family. From these humble beginnings, Jim went on to serve is country in Vietnam before entering the corporate world upon his return. Along the way, he would go from high school drop out to academic triumph-eventually earning a B.S. in Civil Engineering, an MBA, and a PhD in Psychology and Organizational Behavior
Dr. White achieved international recognition as CEO of Blount World Trade Corporation, owner and Managing Director of ACEC Centrifugal Pumps NV, Belgium, and as Vice-President and Division Manager of Ingersoll Rand Equipment Corporation. Throughout his career, he has bought, expanded, and sold 22 companies, operating in 43 countries. His strategy was to acquire failing businesses to revive and develop them into profitable enterprises. To date, Jim has generated more than $1.8 billion in revenue.
Jim is also the best-selling author of What’s My Purpose-A Journey of Personal and Professional Growth. The book, which has been lauded by such industry leaders as Steven M.R. Covey and Debbie Bermont, seeks to change readers by helping them to identify key truths while breaking down the main barriers (the Five Masks) to fulfillment. Our programs are designed to work in a similar vein-challenging the mettle of participants in order for them to achieve their personal best.
