Keystone helps us get to the root of our issues.  Instead of telling our team what to do when discussing difficult issues, Keystone asks the right questions that provoke us to address what’s holding us back. The most difficult issues involve shortcomings in members of the team have. Keystone is very skilled at facilitating us through the process of making the best choice for the team. As a result, we all learn from the experience and cultivate trust.

Prior to engaging with Keystone, we were all over the place with no clear vision, accountabilities, or goals to get us from where we were to where we wanted to be.   Keystone helped move us forward by setting a vision for the company, creating accountabilities for each role, and setting short term and long-term goals.   We now have a purpose and path to get us to where we want to go and we look forward to having Keystone with us on this journey.

For over 4 years we have worked with the Keystone team for our yearly Strategic planning sessions to help keep us on track and ensure our team is considering all viewpoints. Keystone helps us create our actionable goals that support our bigger vision for the organization. Our engagements have always been focused, authentic and content heavy, leaving us inspired and motivated with a plan for the upcoming year.

Keystone’s business coaching model provides a foundation for organizations to build a structured approach to develop their teams. By utilizing the regular sessions with Keystone, we’ve been able to leverage their experience and expertise to address issues, set priorities, and lay out an actionable plan that creates an environment where employees can achieve their best.

We used to do our strategic planning annually and would become distracted and lose focus the farther we got away from annual planning.  From our first meeting with Keystone, we made progress toward accomplishing our biggest priorities.  Keystone has helped us navigate complex leadership issues and create an actionable and accessible plan.  We now have clarity on the path forward as areas where we are hitting the ceiling due to growth have been identified and the creation and communication of the shared strategy for the larger organization gets everyone moving in the same direction.  We consider Keystone valued partners and advisors.

Keystone has been invaluable partners for us as our organization has grown and faced new challenges over the past few years. The Keystone team, with their deep bench of talent and expertise, brings us a valuable outside perspective that helps us take a breath, understand that we’re not the only one to have faced these issues, and provides us with best practices that span various company sizes and industries. Finally, they have given us a solid framework through which we are able to break down our challenges into actionable initiatives. We consider the Keystone team as one of our more cherished business partners.
