Grow Your Company with Ease, Speed, and Confidence

Sooner or later, all business owners find themselves working too much “in” the business rather than “on” the business. While working harder than ever, they know their organization could be growing faster and generating greater profits. To generate the traction and significant growth they seek, leaders need strategies to create and sustain a great business as well as ways to break through the invisible barriers preventing forward movement. Your business is competing every day to generate new leads and revenue with others in your industry. Failure to prepare your organization will make it challenging to attain new customers, keep existing ones, and improve your profit margins. As a business mentor and executive coach, Howard has spent the better part of 30 years passionately researching, designing, and implementing his trademarked Business Acceleration System. All business comes down to five things: Stewardship, Human Capital Management, Strategy, Planning, and Accountability. By making adjustments to each of these five areas, Howard has shown companies around the world how they can uncover millions of dollars in hidden revenue and profit.

The Leaky Bucket Quiz

As detailed in his first best-selling book, Your Business is a Leaky Bucket, find out which ‘business leaks’ are costing you thousands, or potentially millions, in lost profit and revenue.


Every business should have a plan for bad economies and when disaster strikes. There are cycles, and mother nature happens. Here are proven strategies to increase growth, profits, and cash today. I recommend that you identify, rank, and assign a value next to the area for improvement.




Coaching with Howard

I believe that every leader can achieve more profits and more fulfillment than they ever imagined possible, and the key is to unlock the true untapped potential of all your employees. By mastering the correct leadership framework, you can raise your confidence to achieve audacious goals, reduce stress levels, and have more time to do what is truly important to you.”

Business Coaching

Leading and coaching the leadership of a multi-million dollar company are vastly different things. Howard has spent decades doing both with businesses ranging from $5 million to over $1 billion in annual revenue using his trademarked Business Acceleration System.

Multiple previous clients have benefited from these documented outcomes:
  • Fast growth
  • Increased profit margins
  • Increased business valuation
  • More effective leadership
  • Improved predictability of results
  • Reduced stress
  • Harmonious culture
  • Increased productivity
  • Less time managing
  • Better communication across the organization
Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is about peeling back the “layers of a leader” – stretching and challenging their thinking until they can see themselves and their business through a new lens they may not have seen otherwise. Howard’s proven, evidence-based program uses positive and humanistic psychology to determine the everyday life and business changes that are needed to foster a more fulfilling professional and personal life experience.

Executives have cited improvements in the following areas:
A deeper understanding of "true self" and the potential for greater leadership effectiveness.
Uncovering new traits to be leveraged for greater capability in leadership and achievement of success.
A powerful sense of how to more resourcefully tackle the root cause of challenges.
Clearly articulated aspirations with specific corresponding action plans.
A better understanding of interactions with others and how to better negotiate personal and professional relationships.
Engage and gain more fulfillment from professional and life pursuits.

What People are Saying

Howard Shore is a tremendous asset to any executive management team. As a CEO, it can be sometimes very difficult to find consultants who not only understand your personal challenges, but also understand the challenges of your team. Working with Howard was not only a pleasure, but most importantly, seamless. He took the time to understand what was keeping me up at night so that he can better relate to the challenges of each and every one of my team members.
He very quickly understood the metrics that drive our business so that he could act more as an extension of our team, and not a consultant. We very much felt like Howard was a part of our leadership team as he never made us feel as though he was not invested in our success. He takes a very personal, holistic role in understanding the nuances and unique circumstances that surround your company and tailors solutions to meet those circumstances.

I’ve been to numerous management workshops over the span of my 25+ year career and I can honestly say Howard Shore’s group training session was my favorite by far. There was not a moment or exercise wasted. The information provided was relevant and concise. It’s not easy to take an entire day away from a busy desk; however, it is worth it when you come back to the office with great ideas that help refresh approaches to stale processes as well as shake the dust off of old but effective practices we stopped using for whatever reason.
In addition, there is a perspective shift on how you view issues in your organization when Howard shares his personal business learning experiences as well as how he’s helped clients resolve numerous business struggles. It reminds us that most of our problems are not unique and that there is at least one really good approach to resolving an issue.
