For those that know me, it will not come as a surprise to learn that after a great deal of thought (and input), I am very excited to announce that the next professional step for me is to go into business for myself.
As of today, RJG Consulting, LLC is open for business, and I will serve as Ameliorator.

Designing productive cultures
Building bad-ass management and sales teams
This is where I do my best work and have the most fun. So, this will be what I focus on as a consultant. I will, of course, continue to leverage the incredible relationships I’ve built over the years to ensure clients get maximum value.

Sales model innovation
Rapid organizational change
Higher performing management or sales teams
Culture redesign or a morale boost
Consider letting me take a look at the patient to offer a diagnosis.
