SAOL Approach…A Results-Oriented Roadmap to Organizational Health & Performance

The Strategic, Agile and Organizational Leadership (SAOL) Coaching and Consulting Certification Program is a rigorous, real world methodology for creating skilled consultants to champion and orchestrate organizational health, agility and performance across all levels of an organization.

Unique, flexible and adaptable, this immersive program is built on the following results-oriented linchpins:

Holistic Leadership Development

  • Far more than executive coaching, SAOL Consultants focus on the holistic organization and their leadership development needs across individuals, teams, cross-functional departments, regions and more.

Address “Pain Points”

  • Organizations need to see results before they can fully trust the change required for performance improvement. Accordingly, SAOL Consultants focus on pain points, proving the methodology, while strategically promoting company healing and superior performance.

Chief People & Performance Officer Mindset

  • SAOL focuses on optimizing both the human and performance potential of an organization. Filling organizational voids, SAOL Consultants serve the much-needed leadership role of Chief People & Performance Officer.

Create Measurable Results

  • The Performance Scorecard is a staple of SAOL Consultants. Created by the user – at the very first session – this scorecard, and its built-in accountability, becomes the self-designed roadmap for improvement.

What Participants Say About SAOL!

SAOL is all about having the courage and the tools to address the truth for both personal and organizational growth.

Public Administration

The biggest thing I gleaned from our week learning SAOL was that it really represents the alignment of mind, body and soul. Within SAOL, the mind represents leadership, the body is daily operations and the soul is a company’s strategic mission and vision. SAOL helps converge all of these allowing a company and its people to be the best that they can be.

Aviation and Aerospace

My week with SAOL was one of transformational leadership development. I have transformed as a person and a leader to help others do the same.

Private University

Simply put, SAOL is a principles-based approach to problem-solving which allows you to internalize the concepts and practice them on a daily basis for sustainable improvement.

Consumer Research and development

SAOL is a highly introspective process for leaders and their organizations. It first focuses on who you are as a person before it tackles what you do. In doing so, it identifies and resolves pain points by focusing on the root cause, not the symptom.

Health Industry

The SAOL™ Coaching & Consulting Certification program challenged me to acknowledge and resolve how I’m “getting in my own way” and limiting my success.

Energy Industry

The greatest benefit of SAOL™ Coaching and Consulting methodology is its ability to facilitate you to identify and resolve issues. This personal growth forms the basis for sustainable leadership skills.


SAOL™ Coaching and Consulting is a MUST for anyone in a formal or informal leadership position.

Social Services

I’ve been through many leadership programs before. SAOL™ Coaching and Consulting Certification is the first program to make me feel truly confident that I can help businesses and employees resolve their pain points.


SAOL™ is far more than coaching. It’s about understanding yourself and how you can improve your own and other’s performance.

Social Services

SAOL™ heals organizations and improves performance making it more than how to be effective in’s about how to be effective in life.
