About Us

Par∙a∙clete

   

A Greek term meaning to come alongside and support, strengthen, advise and advocate

Today more than ever, businesses need support and access to leverage the experience of trusted professionals.  Par∙a∙clete Partners does not operate in the typical “academic world” of some business services firms.  Why? Because textbook or academic formulas alone won’t meet the needs of today’s business environment. Your organization needs real world experience and solutions imparted by a team of executives who have “been there, done that”.​

Through proven, systematic and personalized exercises of Vision, Focus, and Engagement,  Par∙a∙clete Partners is dedicated to guiding management teams/business owners in the processes which drive growth. With a combined 150 years of real world business leadership and experience, our team is here to “Strengthen your Business for Growth”.

 

Philosophy

We dedicate ourselves to ensuring our business partners are successful and we won’t shy away from difficult challenges and straightforward communication.  

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it took place”

– George Bernard Shaw

We operate with a growth mindset because learning is something you do until your last day and upping your game is critical to success.  

“You cannot achieve a new goal by applying the same level of thinking that got you where you are today” 

– Albert Einstein

We know that there is always a solution and most times it is a win for all parties…..when there is a willingness to change.

“Yesterday’s formula for success is not necessarily tomorrow’s”

– Barry Wolfson

We believe that hard work outperforms talent when talent fails to work hard.

How We Add Value

Par∙a∙clete Partners provides vital solutions in:

Many smaller to medium sized businesses, and even some larger businesses lack the in-house resources to drive these critical business growth functions and processes. Par∙a∙clete Partners is structured to support these critical functions by coming alongside the management team and creating a balanced approach of resources, processes and experiences.  We recognize that each company has its own culture, is at a certain stage in its development, and has unique needs.
