Alpine Link Consulting, Training, and Coaching Services

Alpine Link Corporation offers specialized consulting, coaching, and training services for organizations and individuals. We pride ourselves in making a positive difference and delivering high-impact services that are differentiated from conventional firms in six ways:

1. Our approach is based on practical experience, not theory. We are business practitioners, not business philosophers. We fully understand the "what" and the "why", but uniquely focus on the "how". We practice, not philosophize. We are not self-proclaimed experts who merely know how to talk and present. If you don't care about experience, then hire speakers who only speak, coaches who only coach, and trainers who only train. We take on the most challenging assignments and stay grounded in experience, not concepts.     

2. We customize our content to the specific needs of our clients. People, organizations, customers, and markets are different. Off-the-shelf services and standardized programs are good for imparting general knowledge, but fall short of enabling sustainable behavior change. We tailor our content to leverage our client’s unique capabilities and opportunities. We don't use generic exercises or contrived examples. We focus on our client's specific needs and address actual challenges.  

3. Our thought leadership is best-in-class.  Consultants, trainers, and coaches are commodities. True experts are not. We offer the most advanced yet value-conscious knowledge available. We keep our expertise current with continual updates to our rich principle centered "how-to" library of models and frameworks. Because most organizational performance issues are rooted in people issues, we refine our approaches and templates continually to reflect our latest work on behavioral change as well as new findings from neuroscience research.  

4. We make the intangible tangible. We put science into the art. We uniquely apply analytical capabilities such as root-cause diagnostics, process modeling, and behavioral science to areas considered non-scientific and intangible such as self-improvement, organizational change, leadership development, and sales performance improvement. We have the unique ability, methods, and tools to understand, model, simplify, communicate, and turn complex issues into straightforward solutions. We organize the disorganized.

5. Our abilities transcend the organizational ecosystem. From our experience in working across multiple domains, we understand how organizational elements interact and impact each another. Abraham Maslow said, "If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail." We see problems for what they are, not for what we have to offer.

6. We deliver results. We focus on adding value and impacting our client's bottom line. We only engage in meaningful work. Our involvement directly improves how organizations develop, produce, sell, and deliver their products and services. We do the hard work that needs to be done for organizations to truly improve their performance. Our consulting, training, and coaching services deliver real value.
 
 
In short, our practical experience, tailored approach, thought leadership, ability to deal with complexity, unique cross-domain capabilities, and results focus provide our clients with more value in less time than with conventional training and consulting methods. This makes us a best fit for clients who have the highest expectations. We cater to those whose higher standards go beyond simple training programs and basic consulting services. We don't settle for mediocrity and neither should you. 

The coaches, speakers, trainers, and consultants you engage set the standard for your employees to follow and reflect your own competence. Use Alpine Link and set the standard high. When you hire Alpine Link, we not only enable your success, we make you look smart in the process.
