About Us

Parallel Management Company
Strategy + Culture.

Whether you’re a hardware store with 20 employees or a multinational manufacturer with 20,000, your success depends on people. A neglected culture causes employee turnover, disengagement, unproductive conflict, and dysfunctional teams.

We help you drive culture and strategy in parallel. Through state-of-the-art employee assessment tools and training, we help eliminate bad hires, reduce turnover, and prevent dysfunctional and disengaged teams.

It’s been said that “Culture eats Strategy for breakfast." At Parallel Management Company, we believe that leaders must drive Strategy and Culture in parallel. We also believe that “Culture” is a verb. Rather than standing by helplessly as it develops and changes, leaders must intentionally define, nurture, and steer the culture, aligning people with strategy. “Culturing” begins with placing the right people in the right positions. Our PXT Select™ assessment helps select, develop, and coach A-players. Everything DiSC® assessments and training, our Culture Catalyst™, then helps the team communicate and work together effectively. And for taking the team to a whole new level, we offer The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™. Make the workplace a better place with Parallel Management Company.
