Leadership & Self-Awareness

We believe that the best leaders are the right combination of 4 pillars: experience, personal skills, psychology, and coaching. Our executive consultants will help you identify, assess, and develop your leaders to help them transform and thrive at all levels.

Strategic Planning

Our ever-expanding network of I-O certified IVY consultants spans the world with unparalleled backgrounds and expertise, making our customized teams agile yet wise, to guide organizational strategies, as companies grow and evolve.

Assessments & Selection

Ivy professionals can help you evaluate your existing assessment measures for their validity within your unique setting, or develop custom solutions to help you place the right person in the right position – maximizing productivity while enhancing employee and organizational well-being.

Staff Development & Team Building

High-performing teams are built through culture, regardless of proximity and job titles. ICG’s Industrial-Organizational consultants are unique in the field in that they combine their knowledge of psychological principles of interpersonal and group dynamics, to help people form alliances, trust, mutual existential values, and joy in their work-life relationships.

Training & Coaching

Organizations that don’t have robust and relevant training and impeccable coaching will fall behind their competitors and eventually out of the market. Whether you have 5 employees or 5,000, our team will help you design and deliver training content based on our continually updated best training, educational, and coaching practices.

Market Research & Branding

Utilizing our tool kit of research methodologies, we will design and implement the right strategies to measure the right criterion for goal-driven results both within teams and between teams and customers.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Ivy Consultants help organizations leverage DE&I initiatives in ways that drive business outcomes while improving worker satisfaction and team productivity.

Motivation & Engagement

Happy workers who are committed to their organization’s mission, receive consistent and operationalized feedback, and believe deeply in the value of what they do can dramatically improve corporate profitability. Understanding what drives your team is at the heart of what IVY consultants do.

Performance & Culture

We understand human behavior. By leveraging our data-driven solutions with proven research methodologies, our team will design incentive plans designed to connect, motivate, and inspire every level of your organization.

Balance & Wellbeing

I-O professionals are unique among HR-certified and MBA professionals, who have minimal training in understanding the psychology of human behavior, the psychosocial components that inform assessment, engagement, and performance, as well as the physical, psychological, and subsequent occupational health of employees.

I have known Heather for many years, and have worked with her in number of different capacities. She is intelligent, hardworking, incredibly astute, and disciplined. She has an amazing eye and mind for detail; nothing goes by unnoticed. She is a quick learner, a good teacher, and easy to work with. She manages her staff and clients with dignity and respect, yet expects excellence, and flawless performance from herself and her team. I have always enjoyed working with Heather, and look forward to more opportunities to work with her.

Paul is a tremendous coach and leader. He works hard to understand the motivation of the individuals he works with and designs a game plan to make them successful. He leads by example and strives to find the positive in every situation, looking at challenges as an opportunity to excel. Not only was he a President's Council District Manager, he was a peer leader and key resource for me during my time at Farmers.

I had the privilege of speaking with Jeff recently and I was just blown away! The amount of time he took listening to me and finding out who I am and what makes me tick was really impressive. He really believes in helping people, not just helping people grow professionally. Finding out the why behind why someone does something speaks to his emotional intelligence and ability and true desire to make a difference in the life of the person to whom he is speaking. As I told him, I would 1000% recommend working with Jeff!

When one reads the history of Jeff's work experience it is extremely impressive, yet this is not what truly sets Jeff apart from other Business Coaches in the world. What truly sets Jeff apart from others is his personal story and his journey to where he is today. Having been one of the most successful District Managers with Farmers Insurance to only lose what is really important, family, faith and health, Jeff has now taken a hard look at this and turn his business upside down putting Faith, Family and Heath at the forefront of his business. Jeff's book, My Most Successful Failure, is a must read for anyone whether in business or a person climbing the corporate ladder if having it all is important to you. Jeff now passionately coaches others on how to have it all. John M. Clark Client of Jeff

Jeff has been one of those men in my life that absolutely transformed the direction on this earth. He is an incredible person, father, husband, and servant leader. I will always be grateful to him in allowing me to take on my journey 20years ago. He has been a mentor, friend, and absolutely someone that holds the qualities that any person would want. These are just a few reasons why I would recommend Jeff. Thank you for what you did for me 20years ago when I was 20years of age.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Paul during my tenure in Arizona with Farmers Insurance Group. There is no one more committed to achieving and exceeding the bottom-line results without sacrificing his integrity. He is a team oriented individual who cares enough about his own team to help them achieve goals regardless of the challenge.

Jeffrey is a natural born leader. I studied with him at the Harvard Extension School and I credit most of my success in the course to his help. He generously helped all of his colleagues with the course material, he would often provide summaries and answer questions as well as meet with those who struggled. Jeffrey is very organized and tailors his delivery according to the student level and comprehension. The approachable atmosphere he created allowed for students to deliberate freely and feel safe asking simple questions. On a more personal note, he also managed to reassure my fears during the semester which boosted my confidence resulting in a favorable outcome. I definitely see Jeff in a teaching and mentoring position for both his patience and high awareness of the audience will prove invaluable.

The genius of Jeff's teaching ability stems from the fact that he talks with you, rather than at you. He took the time to find out about my own interests in order to create personal analogies to help me solve complex problems. I can't even remember the last time a teacher took that kind of care to find out how I learn. I met Jeff while attending Harvard with him and my only regret is that I didn't meet him sooner.

Jeff is a consummate professional! His passion for what he does and contribute to the insurance industry in general is immeasurable. If everyone shared the same enthusiasm and fervor for accomplishing great things with agents, clients, and company individuals alike that Jeff does, the entire industry would be something different than what it is today! I highly recommend them for any sort of professional position within the insurance industry as he has much left to contribute and provide others in his journey!

Jeff is always someone I look to for great insights and ideas. He first listens, then guides my team and I through his mentoring and coaching skills. Offering support during my start-up phase was not only helpful but saved me money due to the planning and attention to detail he offered. Being a business owner has its challenges, but having Jeff as a partner will help create a winning environment. Thank you, Jeff, for all yo do.

Jeff is not only a great and reliable perfectionist but also an inspiring strategist. Jeff is also one of the most dedicated professionals through his work at Farmers Insurance as a District Manager. He has been my mentor if he knows it or not, for years with expertise and knowledge. The effect is staggering on how it’s helped me. I am notorious for being the charismatic leader in my district and I attribute much of that from a simple teaching of his. I would recommend Jeff very highly if you are given the opportunity in becoming one of his agents
