Your Link to Reaching Peak Potential
Alpine Link is a boutique consulting company founded in 2005 by Mike Hawkins. Alpine Link provides leadership development workshops, executive coaching, consultative sales training programs, and management consulting services that are based on extensive practical experience in helping individuals and organizations reach peak performance. Our capabilities share a common core – delivering results through influencing human behavior. Because leaders sell, sales people lead, and everyone performs their best by having an ability to positively influence others, our core focus underpins two areas of specialization related to
the art and science of influence.
Leadership Development: Learning to lead, setting the example for others to follow, communicating effectively, coaching leaders to lead as coaches, imparting ownership, leveraging partnerships, promoting collaboration, and executing with excellence.
Sales Performance Improvement: Selling as a consultant, becoming a strategic advisor, implementing customer service best practices, delivering a high-impact value proposition, developing sales resources, and creating alignment in the sales ecosystem.
Alpine Link is founded on the principle that reaching your peak potential is an individual journey, not a mass-produced event. It requires taking action in four areas: 1) developing improved approaches and practices, 2) creating the enabling mindset, 3) transferring knowledge and understanding, and 4) building ability through application. Our consulting, training, and coaching services span these four areas providing the customized capability and integration our clients require.
Organizations and individuals who are successful are those with the ability to execute in these four areas. Success happens not to those with the best ideas, but to those who translate their ideas into abilities and actions. Alpine Link engages in targeted work that enables results, not merely knowledge acquisition. We help our clients execute with excellence and confidence, not dependence.
