The Open Gate Story

People have complicated lives

For the business leader, managing and leading people can, at times, be a frustrating and costly distraction. Leaders in small to medium business often don’t have the internal resources to develop their leadership team. Leader development, organizational development and management support seem out of reach. Business to business providers tend to ignore the small to medium business client.

At Open Gate Consulting we saw this need and have dedicated ourselves to small business — their leaders and teams. Through our broad experience in leadership development, behavioral health and organizational development, we have a deep understanding of what makes people tick. This unique blend of experience allows us to work with business leaders in a profound way. Not only as a guide to navigate the complexities of creating and sustaining a winning team, but as a partner who has your back.
And, as your business thrives, we have the depth of resources to be there for you as you grow.



 


Our Vision

People are at their best when valued and given the chance to contribute. At every level of an organization, we want your team to have access to the skills, resources and feedback needed to succeed in their personal and professional goals. Your team will enjoy greater confidence in handling life’s challenges and reaching for their dreams.

People deserve better
