What We Do

Strategic Advising

We help shape our clients’ future by providing extensive strategic insight, tactical business knowledge, and leadership excellence. Most importantly, we recognize that success ultimately depends upon people – with all their promise & idiosyncrasies, hopes & fears, competencies & quirks – and we place great emphasis on finding solutions that promote favorable organizational and individual behavior. Our goal is to be a reliable component of our clients’ business, whether the aim is to complete a transition, secure a partner, integrate operations, increase productivity, or launch a new venture.

  • Strategic Themes

Helping leaders define and pursue a cogent strategy by setting priorities, focusing energy and resources, strengthening operations, establishing agreement around outcomes, and working towards common goals. Whether a start-up or decades-old operation, PointAbove assists in decisions and actions that shape organizational identity – what it is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it – all with an eye towards the future.  

Focus Areas: competitive advantage, performance improvement, transition management, start-ups, M&A and operational integration planning

  • Tactical Themes

We provide the insights necessary to better assess opportunities, identify gaps, and develop the most affective path forward to achieve results. We’re on a mission to make the world better by building better workplaces – places that empower people to do more, achieve more, and live more of the life that they want to live. Recent projects include conducting needs analysis, strategic planning and goal setting, meeting facilitation, and imparting skills that contribute to strategic direction.

Focus Areas: product/service launch, digital & social marketing, internal & external communications, engagement & retention, cultural change, interview & key hire assistance

Coaching

We help people live more of the life they want to be living – higher performance, better relationships, more happiness and satisfaction – all while increasing their capacity to handle more.

If you’re looking to improve your current situation – whether at work, with your team or just life in general  – you’re in the right place.

  • Professional Development

We work with those interested in being more productive, making better decisions, or just gaining more insight into the challenges they’re currently facing. We employ developmental discussions and actionable feedback to strengthen Psychological Capital (confidence, resilience, optimism, and hope), Mindfulness, and interpersonal skills.

Focus Areas: PsyCap, high performance, stress tolerance, increasing capacity to handle more

  • Personal Transitions

Helping clients manage the change and stress of work, ready themselves for promotion, and map out career strategies. Assisting with job search strategies, crafting your offering and verbal pitch, interviewing, networking, and negotiating skills.

Focus Areas: mid-life career change, advancement & promotion, work/life integration

We also believe life is worth living and fill our free time exploring our world – mountain climbing, spelunking, and other adventures.
