Consulting

FindTrainKeep Project Team Consultants are committed to achieving measurable, quantifiable outcomes.

Together, we will create profound, positive impact that is sustainable, long after the completion of our project partnership. 

  • We begin with the end in mind: specifically, what metrics-based, end result do you wish for our collaboration to achieve for you, your business, and your workplace?
  • We engage in comprehensive pre-project preparation prior to beginning any consulting project. Our consultative projects are executed and managed using Project Management Institute concepts and principles.  
  • Exceptional attention is paid to ensure we align your organizational Core Values, brand, and culture, to all facets of the project.
  • We remain unwavering in our focus to achieving the specific, metrics-based results you expect.

Some of Our Consulting Solutions:

  • Not your typical “satisfaction survey” that merely ask employees to rate their experiences and opinions of the organization.
  • Our Engagement and Solution Surveys delve much, much deeper. Employees are empowered to contribute not just their opinion, but provide SOLUTIONS to the challenges they face.
  • Surveys are customized in their design to garner insights and results for each specific department, manager and the organization, as a whole.
  • Final report: Approximately 80 pages in length and includes comprehensive consultative recommendations.
  • Does your organization need to make a ‘critical hire?’ Someone who is truly ideal-fit,  who brings a proven track record, will immediately fit in with your culture, is a genuine, positive contributor to the team and their fellow colleagues, and most of all, can drive positive results, almost from day one?   Allow us the privilege of caring for every detail of that vital ‘talent treasure hunt!’ 
  • We are exceptionally successful at utilizing modern, highly effective, professional recruiting strategies for identifying ideal-fit candidates.
  • We will never ‘throw a bunch of resumes’ at you and expect you to pick. It is our job to conduct in-depth pre-search research about the organization and realities of the position. 
  • Using our “All Access Pass Approach,” the final top 3-5 candidates are given permission to explore, investigate and interview you, and the opportunity, right back. Our approach builds mutual trust between you and the candidate, right from the beginning.
  • Our executive retained search is assertive, comprehensive, thorough, and very different from what other search firms provide. Both our clients, and the candiates, continue to extol the power of transparency, and the foundation of trust that is built throughout the process. 
  • Our retained, executive searches are never exclusive. Thus, you are free to continue your own search for the ideal-fit candidate, through employee referral programs and other recruiting strategies. The retainer is nonrefundable.

Explosive economic impact! Kristine Sexter, and her consulting firm, successfully conducted retained executive searches for a Quality Assurance Manager, a Mechanical Engineer, a Shift Supervisor, a Senior Systems Analyst, an IT Director and an HR Director. All are world-class!

We also attended the ‘Wildly Successful Leadership Series’ and implemented a proactive recruiting plan. The Team Building Focus Groups Sexter facilitated allowed our employees to solve problems, not just complain about them. The results... our manufacturing company has had month-after-month record breaking production!
