Astonishingly average business leader achieves astonishingly average results.

Definitely not a headline you want to pop up about your current business.

But, you know what that looks like right?

A client enquiry doesn’t get answered, and the client goes to your competitor.
You're losing sales because people don't know you or business exists.
Your leaders are leaving you for “better opportunities elsewhere”.
You’re leaving money on the table by not including your diverse client base or embracing the brilliance of your diverse team.
You deeply believe in your business and team, but feel like you're just blending in with everyone else when you know your business is made to stand out. 

All of this makes for an average business making average profits.

And you (and your team) are anything but average.

Sugar and Spikes Consulting helps businesses and teams of all sizes who are ready to face the challenges of shifting workforce expectations, training trends, and marketing strategy, so they can gain more exposure, operate more efficiently, reduce communication concerns, increase team performance, and nurture their workforce to lead them into the next stage of growth.  

We use our 15+ years combined experience to provide organizations services focused in four key areas:

Social Media and Content Marketing Strategy
Remember the days when selling something was as simple as making an offer? We don't either. Marketing has never been easy, and strategies to gain engagement and interest are changing faster than ever. Your job is to know your business. Our job is to help others know your business so you can make the sales you want. 

Diversity Training
Studies show that the more diverse your workforce is, the more profitable your business is—if you know how to work with it.  And really, isn’t it time you connect with all your dream customers and clients rather than just a small segment?

Team Building and Development
Team trends come and go, but there are timeless tools to use to help develop your teams in a way that brings out the best for the individuals and so your teams have less drama and bring in more dollars.
