About Us

Group of business people in a huddle
Better Relationships = More Productive Workplaces

Bishop House Consulting is the premier leadership development and organizational consulting firm working with companies in New York’s Capital Region and Tech Valley. Founded by Michael Holland in 1999, the firm has grown steadily, maintaining trusted, long-term relationships with clients.

​Bishop House trainers and coaches are well-regarded as thought leaders in developing effective executives & managers, building cohesive teams, and navigating organizational change. Bishop House excels at building both leadership capability within all levels of leaders and the leadership capacity of organizations. The firm works with leaders through training programs and coaching projects, focusing on building from the core out.

​We believe that creating deep self-awareness of one’s leadership style enables opportunities to build trusted relationships, which in turn allows for the formation of cohesive teams. We help leaders seek those keystone behaviors in their core management routines, which can be adjusted to allow for initial shifts in their leadership behavior. With continued practice, these behaviors become effective leadership habits, resulting in more effective leaders and greater leadership capacity within the organization.

  • Thank you for everything you did to make our training a wonderful experience. you have a very effective way of presenting material so that it is appropriate and relevant to every person - a difficult order when you consider how different our backgrounds were. You also did it all with an energy and enthusiasm that made it all the more enjoyable!

  • What I noticed was a team that was interacting dramatically different with each other. The contrast of before and after was striking. There was a comfort, trust and even lighter feel than I had ever experienced with that same team. They are literally transformed, and I am so proud of the work they did and thankful for your guidance through it.

  • Everything DiSC Workplace®

    Have you ever wondered why some people just don't get you? Or ever thought "I cannot even begin to know what my boss needs - even when I ask her, I still don't know."

  • Everything DiSC Management®

    The Everything DiSC Management® profile provides a deep understanding of yourself, the first step to becoming an effective manager. It will help you to understand the preferences you have as a manager - what you enjoy and what drains your energy when managing.

    The profile teaches you how to observe behaviors in colleagues, employees and clients to recognize their DiSC styles and how to adapt your behavior to those styles to manage more effectively. The concentration of the report is on directing, delegating and developing the people you manage.

  • Leadership Coaching

    Leadership coaching is recognized as one of the best ways to raise business performance, enhance leadership skills and increase individual effectiveness. Our customized programs guide leaders to grow the depth and breadth of their people leadership. We work one-on-one with the leader to establish a confidential, mentoring relationship, guiding the leader to explore their role, their engagement within that role, and particularly their impact upon the organization. We have expertise in:

    Leadership Coaching - for those leaders who are leading teams/departments or leading leaders of teams/departments.

    Executive Coaching - for senior leaders who not only lead leaders but are also key influencers in their companies.

    Small Group Coaching - enables a small gathering of leaders - usually 2 to 4 - to build trusted, peer-mentoring relationships.

    Business Owner Coaching - developed to guide business owners who must balance the demands of executive leadership with business ownership.

  • Management Training

    We have worked with thousands of leaders in the Capital District and beyond to teach them how to leverage their own style and talents and to lead well. We believe that creating deep self-awareness of one's leadership style enables opportunities to build trusted relationships, which in turn allows for the formation of cohesive teams.

    We help leaders to seek those keystone behaviors in their core management routines which can be adjusted to allow for initial shifts in their leadership behavior. With continued practice these behaviors become effective leadership habits, resulting in more effective leaders and greater leadership capacity within the organization.

    We offer public as well as on-site customized programs. Typical topics include:

    DiSC: Understanding Personal Styles
    The Role of a Leader
    Management Communication
    Creating an Effective Work Environment
    Coaching Performance
