A business is like the human body. When healthy, the organs work together like the departments in a perfect business. If an organ of the body becomes diseased, symptoms may appear and we need a doctor.
Like a team of doctors for sick businesses, the professionals at Lighthouse have a simple and comprehensive approach to bring your business to optimal health and profits:
Lighthouse has a variety of examination and diagnostic tools such as personality assessments, employee surveys, and performance analyses that expose business disease. We also have treatment tools such as consulting, coaching, seminars and workshops on the topics of High Performance Leadership, Strategy, Teamwork, Trust, and Emotional Intelligence. Our research-based, time-tested organizational development tools provide the treatments to take your company to optimal health. We recommend an annual examination to prevent business disease.
Mastery does not happen by accident. It is a process that occurs as we interact effectively with the events and circumstances of our lives. Each moment of our lives provides an opportunity to practice mastery by expanding our visions, awakening the faculties of our minds and our hearts, and assuming full responsibility for living, growing, and contributing.
Doug is teaching lessons as a friend which creates a safe area to open discussions and share our experiences. Also, he is linking these lessons to live examples which help us to apply these lessons to our work and life. He is an amazing and helpful instructor.
Doug’s easy-going style and flexibility; the fact that you really seem to care that we understand and learn the information; the way that you keep us engaged; your knowledge and familiarity with the material/information.
Doug is unassuming, affable, and easy to listen too. He presents the material at a good pace and clearly studies his delivery style and practices his class material presentations.
Doug makes you think and gets good participation from the class modules and exercises, provides excellent ideas as well as thoughts to ponder on. Videos and slides are of great value to the topic and easy to relate or understand.
Doug is calm, friendly & warm. He knows the material & is able to help us see connections to work and home. He allows time for discussion & thought. He creates a comfortable and safe place for discussion.
The most effective part of Doug’s instruction is the trusting relationship that he was able to establish with us right away.
Positive , energetic attitude. Organized, forthright, to the point, stays on topic, clear. Obvious that he wants to include everyone – accepting, polite, respectful of everyone and portrays one who appreciates each person for their unique abilities, skills and current status. Doug portrays humility, honesty and a forthright teaching manner that is not overbearing.
I appreciate that he (Doug) has a high degree of knowledge in all the subjects that have been presented. He has the ability to link research, stats, and studies to real world business and personal leadership.
He’s engaging without being judgmental. He allows for free expression openly and then summarizes the value nuggets out of the sometimes rambling discussion.
I like that Doug seems to really care about the people he is instructing. And I really, really appreciate that he ties current teachings back to previous teachings. Because there is so much content to think about, and when I go back to my day job it is hard to keep all the information fresh in my mind.
We wanted to focus on patient care not reinventing the wheel of leadership training. Lighthouse Leadership was our answer.
Doug has a deep knowledge of business management and leadership needs. He’s been very helpful in finding solutions for me and my business when I felt stuck.
Your feedback during and after our meeting was clear and concise and outlined practical steps to improve my success and satisfaction with my business.
“I really appreciated the way Doug encouraged and lead the group to be so interactive. I found it to be insightful, inspirational, and FUN!”
I won’t hesitate to call on you and Lighthouse Leadership for assistance in the future.

"In large organizations having an executive coach is becoming a status symbol, as in, “The Company values me so much they’re willing to get me my own coach. Don’t you have one?”
The purpose of having an executive coach is to help you see things you can’t see, to provide an outside perspective with expertise to guide you to a better, more successful and fulfilling place. The best of the best can’t see themselves clearly, not even you. With the help of the Lighthouse Coaching Model, and third-party objective assessments, coaches at Lighthouse will illuminate the path to a brighter future."
Lighthouse Leadership has partnered with 360Solutions to offer many valuable assessments and survey tools that can be used for hiring the right employees, gaining insight from workgroups, and uncovering development opportunities for individuals and organizations. Over 25 years of research and development have gone into our employee assessment system.
Management and Leadership is a significant part of the answer to whatever challenges your organizations may face. "High Performance Leadership: From Control to Empowerment" will teach you how to be an outstanding leader/manager within your organization.
