“2020 has been a great "test" to see the positive results of using Strategic In/Sight Partners. We walked into COVID while using the Strategic In/Sight Partners process and had a very clear understanding of performance metrics as well as open projects, all documented in Strategic In/Sight Partners. I truly believe this gave us an advantage to be nimble in the right ways! Strategic In/Sight Partners brought a high degree of sanity to some insane times.”
Preston McElheney, President
“We have been working with Eric Kurjan and the team at Strategic In/Sight Partners for roughly 7 years now. Their system, approach, software, and team have helped focus our organization which has led to better execution and results for our company. Since the pandemic of 2020 began, we have made many adjustments to our business and Strategic In/Sight Partners has helped us navigate priorities and strategy, and that has helped us remain successful despite the current challenges.”
Wes Sights, President and CEO & Jon Sights, Executive VP and COO
During the COVID pandemic, I was shown this quote - “I will never forget who ignored me when I needed them, and who helped before I even asked.” I feel it perfectly captures the spirit of assistance we received during very dark days from Eric Kurjan and the Strategic In/Sight Partners team. They never left our virtual “side,” as our Food & Beverage business went into lockdown, and coached us on the organizational challenges needed to re-emerge. I fully recommend their services to anyone serious about taking their business to a higher level.
Mark Rawlinson, Owner
Since working with Strategic In/Sight Partners, we have found that they took the strategic plan that was it our heads and not only put it on paper, but put it in front of our people every week, and every month. It allowed us easily to talk about it and have it not just be part of our strategy long term, but part of our strategy for how we execute on a day-to-day basis. It’s helped with team alignment, and, at the end of the day, execution towards those goals.
Colin Wetlaufer, President
We chose Strategic In/Sight Partners because of their experience, process, and commitment to keep us focused on what’s most important. Could we have done it on our own? Perhaps. But not with the same speed and completeness of what Strategic In/Sight Partners has brought to the table. I count on their expertise and their process to keep us focused on what’s most important, despite the distraction of the day-to-day.
PJ Dempsey, President
We have really enjoyed our experiences with Strategic In/Sight Partners. They have helped us as an organization and have helped our employees feel empowered. Our Strategic In/Sight Partners coach, Dan Gonder is a great sounding board and has really helped us think through some of our challenges to keep us on track with our goals. I would recommend Strategic In/Sight Partners to others because in our industry, things can get chaotic and you can get off into weeds, but Strategic In/Sight Partners is always there to help keep us moving forward.
Tom & Bill Heilman, Owners, Ace ImageWear
“Like most businesses, we were confronted with the confusion and the many unknowns brought on by the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. While we had just come off a very productive year end strategic planning session with our Strategic In/Sight Partner, our Leadership team quickly found itself reacting to managing the overwhelming virus safeguards and navigating the erratic market and new project customer demands. As our Company oscillated with the many conflicting priorities, our Strategic In/Sight Partner continued to reach out with guidance and best practices to create a cohesive direction. Kudos to Eric, his team and a process that does truly work!”
Jon Sisler, President, Brett Sisler Vice President
“Our former strategy was just 'to sell.' Strategic In/Sight Partners has changed all that – we are now looking at our business through a 10 year window, but with a focused quarterly strategy to get us there. We are more organized and are setting common goals that align with our manufacturers’ goals. We expect that getting on the same page with each other and our manufacturers will tremendously improve our business. And this is not just a good plan written down and put into a desk drawer. With Strategic In/Sight Partners, it’s all about execution.”
Scott Boley, Partner
Strategic In/Sight Partners is a good return on investment financially and a greater return on investment on the intangibles of morale, associate confidence in the company, the process, and themselves, and leadership vision.”
“I would adopt Strategic In/Sight Partners again, without hesitation. I only wish I would have done this in years prior.”
Pat O'Connor, President
