10 Keys to Employee Engagement

How to Create a High Performing Team

How to Coach, Develop & Inspire People


Over 50% of the world’s 400 million team leaders, supervisors, managers, and executives are failing. My vision is to reach all those who want to do better. I work with managers (and often their teams) who fit two categories:

  • Feel broken: Do you seem stuck, frustrated, disappointed or even fearful about your job? Maybe you’re even a bit desperate yet you know you can do better?  I want to talk to you, if you are willing to change and do the work. I will help you reignite your passion and career success.
  • Want breakthrough: Or do you desire career advancement?  You could use some personal development, guidance and support to navigate the path forward?  I want to talk to you as well, if you are willing to change and do the work. I will help you reach the next level faster and more effectively.


can achieve your goals.

I’ll show you how.


During the past 20 years we have worked with nearly 500,000 managers representing 5M employees. Our success is their success. We are proud of our client partnerships, working with most of them over many years. Our focus is to inspire people for greatness.

  • It is my pleasure to recommend Rick Conlow. Rick is a tremendous sales and development professional. His dedication, commitment and passion all serve him well in building relationships and driving results. I am thankful for the opportunity I had to work with Rick and his team.

    Desmond C. Corporate Training Manager/ Patterson Dental
  • I worked with Rick for many years. His consulting skills helped our company to improve business, reduce complaints and win quality service awards. Rick gives audiences information they can take out in the street one minute after the seminar is over and put it to use. I highly recommend Rick’s firm for business consulting.

    Camelia J. Interactive Project Manager/ Young and Rubicam
  • My first contact with Rick was when I attended a continuing education seminar with Rick as the presenter. I was so inspired that I signed up 10 of my reports to attend his Excellence In Management program. Whenever you force anyone to attend classes they are reluctant to say the least. By the end of the classes many of them continued contact with Rick for additional training. Since then I hired Rick on two occasions to train and inspire Managers. He is a learned, insightful, and compassionate instructor and human being. I would highly recommend Rick for any consulting or training opportunity. Rick’s business acumen is top notch, he gets results and your people will enjoy the process.

    Jim F. CSC Credit Services
  • Rick is a highly skilled speaker. Whether in person, or on any of his training dvds. I was recently editing a couple of his  dvds when I found myself stopping what I was doing, and listening to Rick. He has a way of grabbing your attention, and holding it while he is teaching, that makes it easy to hear the message and learn from him.

    Dale S. Project Specialist/ Internet Business SEO
