 “Our Contributions to the Development of Our Profession
     & Its Underlying Disciplines”
      This paper provides our background and qualifications. It details the research and development we’ve done over the past twenty-six years and the resulting contributions to our profession and field. It summarizes the current and historical state of the management professions (including consultants and coaches), the training industry, and the management and organizational sciences. It introduces five, little-known, sophisticated, theoretical disciplines that underlie our work and examples of how we derived our methods and tools from these roots.
 “What Kind of Management Consultants Are You?”  
      The term “management consulting” has become debased coinage over the years. Nobody knows what it means anymore. This paper explains and differentiates the four, very different kinds of service that are all called “management consulting.” It identifies the category that we belong to. It also details the advantages of our “Type 4" consulting. This paper will help managers become informed consumers of consulting services.
 “Our Clients & Our Results”  
      This paper gives a brief account of who has benefited from our work. It also describes some of the results we’re most proud of.
