Welcome to Next Steps Coaching!

As an entrepreneur, business owner, nonprofit executive, or pastor, you are primarily concerned with the longevity of your organization and service--you want to thrive in your community and have it outlive you--while also being aware of the tightrope of demands that are necessary to keep your organization afloat:

  • Financials, Accounting, Taxes, and Payroll

  • Marketing and Advertising Strategies

  • Sales Strategies for Business and Fundraising

  • Product/Service Development

  • Leadership and People Development

  • Hiring and Building a Team

  • Team Building and Communication

Your passion is for your business to succeed and make an impact in your community and market. You have worked countless hours and poured your heart, time, and resources into building your organization. That's why we believe in building leaders, because we love working with driven, mission-oriented people like you! We want to help you reach your full potential and help you harness the power of your team. Whether your team is on your payroll, volunteer, or outsourced, we believe in helping teams work together.

When we think about harnessing teams, we picture draft horses. They are powerful animals capable of pulling nearly 8,000 pounds by themselves, but harness two of these horses together, and an amazing thing happens, they double their individual output pulling nearly 32,000 lbs!

If two horses harnessed together are able to pull 32,000 pounds, I wonder what your team can do when they are harnessed together? We believe in your team each person is able to do their job well, but working together they will accomplish 2-3 times more. With training and practice, they can accomplish as much as 4 times more. We like to solve 16 ton problems! By harnessing your team, maximizing their strengths, and minimizing their weaknesses, you will see incredible results!
