Our Core Competencies

At Roam Consulting LLC, our core competencies set us apart. Here’s what lies at the heart of our work, and how
we drive excellence.

We’re certified EQ experts.

We believe emotional intelligence (EQ) is the bedrock of authentic leadership success. Our approach with clients is steeped in EQ principles and skills whether its one-on-one coaching, instituting a EQ program for your organization, or developing a strategic plan. We pump up your EQ and help you get real business done.

We customize services to your needs.

Nothing we do is packaged, cookie-cutter or off-the-shelf. Every leader, every organization is different, which means that every approach must be unique to some degree.

We design exceptional leadership experiences.

Nearly all adults learn better by doing. There’s a lot of research out there that shows traditional business trainings and learning environments fall short in helping leaders unify and align their language, purpose, and emotions into meaningful action. And yet, this alignment – many experts call it authenticity – is the defining difference between good leaders and great ones, between functional teams and high-performing ones.


Leadership like swimming cannot be learned by reading about it.
– Henry Mintzberg


We incorporate experiential learning into most of our programs as a metaphor for what happens in the business world. You gain new knowledge and skills through hands-on practice in safe, yet creative, environments. Whether in the arena or a more traditional learning environment, we use proven methods that maximize your learning and shape great leaders and teams from the inside out.

Commitment to results.

You hire a coach or consultant to achieve success. Period. We get that, and are as results-oriented as you are. Referrals are the life blood of our business and happy leaders make referrals. If we don’t think we can help, we say so. If we know of someone who can help you, and it’s not us, we’re happy to connect you to another resource. If we do work together, you can be sure you’ll have an outcome that delivers on your specific purpose and goals.

Sometimes You Need to Go Slow, to Go Fast

Sometimes You Need to Go Slow, to Go Fast

Cato was a gift, although I didn’t know that for a long time.  After two years of searching for the perfect endurance horse, I discovered Cato in the foothills of the Bitterroot Mountains. He came from a herd owned by one of America’s  top ten endurance riders. A proven 100-mile horse, he had a short but impressive endurance…

That Vision Thing

That Vision Thing

Most executives I know are skilled at the ‘we’ vision – that which inspires an organization, major donors or investors, and stakeholders. They’ve helped create it, they live and breathe it, and are truly accomplished at galvanizing others around that ‘we’ vision. In fact, no smart leader would consider developing a strategic or business plan…

A Bucket or a Basket?  Where Do You Put Your Dreams?

A Bucket or a Basket? Where Do You Put Your Dreams?

Every leader needs a bucket list. It’s a helpful concept that can encourage us to be forward-thinking, stretch outside our comfort zone, and set goals. Bucket lists also have some drawbacks: They can keep us focused on what we haven’t — instead of what we have — accomplished. They can get out of hand —…
