About Us

Success in today's complex global arena is challenging, and the rules are changing. As we strive to succeed and stay relevant in the global market, we can be assured of several things: the challenges facing us today will become even more demanding, the speed with which changes occurring will increase, and our competition will change and multiply.

To lead an organization that will maintain a competitive advantage during these transformative times, executive leaders have to revitalize organizational cultures founded on yesterday's paradigms and ideas. Priorities must shift and thinking has to transform. Attitudes and behaviors that reflect new and diverse social, environmental, and organizational values must be adopted. Adjusting to the influx of change is difficult and managing transformation presents even greater challenges and opportunities. In short, organizational success requires solid leadership.

At E3 Strategy Development we are passionate about helping businesses become successful and about helping individuals succeed. We seek to empower business owners and leaders to realize their full potential, to maximize profits, enhance employee satisfaction and deepen their relationships with customers and community.


Our Mission

E3 Strategy Development offers business owners and executives a consistent, first-class resource for business coaching, leadership, and management development on both a local and national scale. Our mission is to help clients develop the strategy, motivation and accountability required to succeed in their business and personal lives by identifying and overcoming the obstacles that are preventing the success they are seeking. 

  • We believe that ordinary people can do extraordinary things if they are fully committed to the outcome.  Therefore, we will only partner with clients whose commitment to their success is at least on par with our commitment to their success.
  • We believe in the power of our processes and will be diligent in delivering their full value to every client.
  • We believe that personal and professional success comes from persistence and grit.
  • We see each contract as an agreement not between a business and its customers, but between partners who wish to create a close and mutually beneficial long-term relationship.

Our Approach

Number one - we are not a training company! We’re a learning and development company. Our business is designing and facilitating processes that enable our clients to develop a substantial competitive advantage they will need to succeed in the future. Now, the difference may seem small to you, but it’s very important to us. You see, training is a process of teaching someone a new skill, usually technical in nature whereas, development is a process of strengthening and using the skills they already have more effectively.

Secondly, there are many organizations out there that offer business improvement strategies and processes to help you make more money. While many of these will help to make a difference, we know it’s much more difficult than that to create and maintain sustainable improved results. That’s why each of our solutions are tailored specifically to the organization we are working with and focuses on the process, the people and the results they desire. We begin with the desired outcome and then develop the tactical steps to achieve those desired results by using proven processes that develop, inspire, encourage, and empower people to do what is necessary to get the results they want.

Our proven processes have been used in thousands of organizations to produce long term sustainable improvements. Let us help you get the results you want and deserve.
