Managing Director, Private Asset Management

Robert W. Baird & Company, Inc.

Willy Steiner has supported our team for several years and has assisted in countless ways. He has:

– Made us more accountable for the commitments we make to each other and the team;

– Provided valuable insights about how we work together;

– Encouraged us to work “ON” our business instead of just conducting business;

– Helped us shape our communications and encouraged the involvement of our whole staff.

I fully endorse Willy and his contributions to the success of our team.

Years of working with groups have taught us that well-designed and executed dialogue can help teams enhance their ability to be as effective as possible.

We often hear that teams are too busy “DOING business” to have time to work “ON the business”. Our team development consulting focuses on inter-group issues that often go unaddressed, using tools to drive team productivity and individual effectiveness that are efficient from both a time and expense perspective.

Our team coaching and development tools include:
