Thomas M. Shenk

Partner Emeritus
“Tom is really part of the fabric of our company and he has been a great hand in developing our leaders. Our engagement scores, retention and business results are the evidence.” –COO / Executive Coaching Client

It’s All About Relationships

Tom helps clients and their companies optimize their “human resource” through skill development, encouragement, and candid executive coaching. Tom focuses on C-suite executives, awakening them to conscious leadership. His deep expertise enables him to subsequently ensure the permeation of proven, behavior-based models to leaders throughout the organization with the goal of creating healthy cultures from which organizations thrive and perform.

Two key principles Tom selected:

  1. “Leadership is relationship and relationship is everything.”
  2. “Are we as leaders behaving in a way that encourages the best from others?”
