About Us

Tom Krekel Headshot
Tom founded and scaled businesses, and was CEO of organizations with as many as 200 people.

My clients tend to be leaders of owner-managed companies, with at least 50 employees, who are determined to scale their businesses and who yearn to grow professionally and personally.

I help clients develop stronger executive teams. To that end I became an Accredited Facilitator on Wiley's "The Five Cohesive Behaviors" developed in collaboration with Patrick Lencioni, author of the best selling “Five Dysfunctions of a Team”.

Executive Summary:
I have 30 years of experience as a founder and CEO in building and operating businesses. I graduated from Wisconsin, and completed an MBA at the Lubar School of Business of the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. The companies I ran ranged from the start-up I founded, to an organization of 200 full-time employees with five locations in central New Jersey where I was President.

Solutions

  • Work of Leaders

    Everything DiSC Work of Leaders approaches leadership as a one-to-many relationship, as opposed to the one-to-one relationship explored in Everything DiSC® Management. It focuses on tangible steps directed at leading a group or organization toward desired outcomes.

    Using the framework of Vision, Alignment, and Execution, Work of Leaders encourages leaders to understand their own leadership styles and how they impact their effectiveness. Rich, compelling narrative adds depth to the data and strong visuals support the learning process by illustrating key messages.

  • The 360 taken to the next level: The Everything DiSC 363™

    What's a 360?
    A 360 is a type of performance evaluation where a number of staff assess an individual. This may include the person's superior, peers, and direct reports.

    The Everything DiSC 363™ combines the best of 360s with the power of DiSC
    For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. At best, open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful. At worst, they're a way to anonymously take a jab at a colleague. And ultimately, they can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback - that the leader can actually use. This time-saving option allows raters to expand on their ratings by choosing from a list of highly-tested comments.
    Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders isn't a collection of dry spreadsheets and charts without any explanation or story. Instead, it combines clear visuals and a conversational narrative style to interpret and explain the data.

  • The Five Cohesive Behaviors of a Team™

    This is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals on a team understand what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team.
