Everything DiSC® Experts at 5.12 Solutions and Coachmetrix

5.12 (five-twelve) Solutions Consulting Group and Coachmetrix

5.12 (five-twelve) Solutions Consulting Group was founded by avid rock climber and leadership thought-leader Sal Silvester more than 15 years ago in Boulder, Colorado. Working with other leadership development professionals and executive coaches, Sal created longer-term team and leadership training techniques and executive coaching programs that ensure positive and profitable growth. Everything DiSC® is a crucial part of our approach.

The 5.12 Solutions team is comprised of executives coaches and thought leaders who are published authors and sought-after leadership development and business training speakers. They are experts on leadership transformation, team development and management training across organizations and throughout careers. For every engagement, a custom leadership development team is deployed that knows how to support clients on their journey to leadership and team excellence.

    The result is a 360° experience that's more productive and satisfying.

    -And finally, we answered the “Now what?” With a lot of 360s, the leader's response can be, “Now what?” Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders answers that question by giving leaders their next steps with three things they can focus on now.

    Measuring behavioral change is crucial. Many training and leadership development companies make the claim that they can. But once you dig deeper, it’s simply not true. When you invest in a DiSC-based program, you deserve results that are truly measurable. You deserve proof that the program works. That’s what inspired 5.12 Solutions to create its own leadership development coaching platform.

    Our innovative cloud-based technology, Coachmetrix, sets us apart from all other leadership development and coaching providers. It serves not only as a one-stop coaching portal throughout the engagement for action planning, online resources, communication and more, but also shows the impact of change in behaviors over time. We’ve moved beyond traditional programs to provide a secure, mobile platform to keep up with a tech-savvy business world and busy leaders who demand efficiency. That means greater accountability, discipline, transparency, and measurement for your DiSC programs.
