Professional Services


Professional services firms confront a unique challenge that most corporate clients simply do not have to face – nearly all of your people work directly with your clients. This means that it is even more important to have the right people in place, properly aligned and optimally organized to provide exceptional client service.

Your people are your product. They are what set you apart from your competitors. Making sure that you have the talent you need and that your teams are organized and prepared to provide world class service is the difference between success and failure; and the difference between winning that new client and losing it to another firm.

We work with some of the best and most respected professional services firms in the world, helping them make sure they have professionals who are aligned and well led, prepared to have a powerful impact on clients, and able to build and manage teams to help solve their client's most complicated problems. The long-standing relationships we maintain with our professional service clients allow us to help them build and develop their teams with a deeper understanding of what it takes to create and sustain high-performing teams.

"The consultants from STS are trusted advisors for me and my team and have been for some time. Although they are objective outsiders, STS takes time to weave themselves into the fabric of our company. They understand our business and get to know our team dynamics and, as a result, they bring informed and objective opinions about what we need to do and how we can become a stronger organization. Every time we work with STS we see a big return on the investment. They have gained the respect of our entire team."

"STS worked with our leadership team and quickly proved they have an uncanny ability to help people open up and share a common perspective. Once our goals were established, they guided us through an action planning process with each of our executives. They see the common issues that we should work on as a team. They see these things we can’t see ourselves and help us create action around it to make our business stronger."

We work closely with STS on some of our most important partner leadership development initiatives year in and year out because they understand our firm and our partners. At our firm it is critical that consultants and coaches have a deep understanding of our culture and how partners get things done within the firm and with our clients and STS always receives high marks in this area.
