LeaMcCrackinSmithSteve Lane with Vertical Leap has an extraordinary analytical mind. I was most impressed during our initial meeting when we were discussing the association and its needs. Steve was able to take my words, remove the layers and discover exactly what my organization needed and wanted.

Steve is quite an adaptable individual. I have witnessed his ability to conform to the varying personalities of my board members while still keeping everyone on task (when we first engaged Steve to conduct) a governance planning retreat. The entire board of directors was quite impressed with Steve’s skills and decided to bring him back to consult on our strategic planning project.  The board enjoyed learning about and participating in a new strategic way of thinking.  I would consider Vertical Leap Consulting one of the best consulting firms to help an organization through the turbulent waters of strategic planning and governance restructuring. Steve is patient, his fees for service are more than fair and he always goes ‘above and beyond’ to deliver a quality consultative product.
