The Organizational Prowess™ Index exposes the hidden realities that hamper growth.





That is what Close Reach Consulting helps a leader avoid.

No leader enjoys sharing disappointment and underachievement with employees or shareholders.

Yet, it is an all too common reality. Ambitious goals are thwarted. Revenue targets become elusive. Critical strategies are partially delivered.

How is it that some companies thrive and actually accelerate growth, even in the midst of tough economic times while others falter or fail completely?
