About

Beyond 10 is a response to the modern-day miscommunication epidemic in the workplace.

 

We misinterpret, we get off-track, and then we repeat the same cycle over and over again. We don’t take time to confront issues, and therefore we rarely resolve them. We wonder if we’re being too passive or too aggressive with our superiors and colleagues. We wonder why others can’t seem to keep up with us, aren’t on the same page, and if it’s even possible to bridge the gaps with some people.

 

We’re here to tell you—Yes. It is.

EARL

CEO, Founder and Speaker

Having achieved success as an entrepreneur, mentor, strategist, coach, speaker, and visionary, I am a man of many, many experiences. I’ve built  companies from the ground up, and in the process I’ve developed a sound understanding of how to make virtually any situation, circumstance, or  obstacle  work in my favor and propel me—and my businesses—forward. For decades I’ve been an advisor to leaders across a broad spectrum of industries, including (but not limited to) banking, entertainment, real estate, energy, private equity, and technology. It all comes down to intention, and it is my passion to guide others in constructing their company’s story—and trajectory—with intention. Achieving full greatness is only possible once that intention is mastered. 

SARA

COO and Speaker

I absolutely adore connection. My zeal in this arena has inevitably translated into my work as an instructional designer, facilitator, and speaker. I’ve been redefining the corporate training experience and teaching communication strategies for Fortune 200 companies for the past 20 years. It doesn’t matter who I’m talking to—sales managers, corporate professionals, non-profit leaders, or anyone in between—we all need help reconnecting to what’s most important to us and bridging gaps with people who are different than us. I love knowing that people walk out of my classes and workshops feeling more powerful in their strengths, confident in their purpose, and connected with their team.

Forward & Upward movement in business is simply not possible without effective communication.

At the most basic level, that means:

1) communication that results in clarity rather than confusion

2) the ability to effectively resolve conflict

3) the ability to hear and understand your colleagues, even when they communicate in a different style than you

That way Janice in Sales and Greg over in IT can be on the same page.

At Beyond 10, we are passionate about moving beyond the basic.

We stand for extreme clarity, resulting in extreme confidence; we stand for resolving conflict immediately, not a week later once the water has boiled over; we stand for total alignment with your team before the meeting ends.

We stand for Janice and Greg not simply understanding one another, but complementing each other so well that they propel the company forward.

This approach is 100% necessary for companies looking to evolve beyond the “good-to-great” approach.

There are plenty of great companies out there already; successfully going beyond “great” requires a cohesive, communicative, and purposeful team.

We don’t settle, and neither should you.

Let us help you UpLevel your team, productivity, bottom-line, and most importantly the difference your company makes.
