About

What does RMI do?

 

Very simply, we help people and organizations articulate and achieve their vision.  We drive for results by creating momentum and inspiration.  RMI does this by facilitating strategic solutions based on critical assessment. We are especially passionate about working to support entrepreneurially minded organizations, which are striving for more meaningful success.

Broadly speaking, we engage in strategic business and Board performance consulting as well as executive coaching.

We have created foundational focus areas within the overall business mix yet we recognize that your specific needs may stretch beyond.  Based on a breadth of entrepreneurial, corporate and Board experience, we can customize consulting services for your organization’s unique situation.  If you’re not sure we can help, please contact us and if we can’t, we would be delighted to suggest alternative resources.

Integrity

We are people who are true 
to their word; we act ethically and 
can be trusted. What we say and 
what you see is truly what you get!

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT & DRIVE

Entrepreneurial Spirit & Drive – we thrive
 on energy, innovative approaches, 
applied and continual learning and 
taking risks on new ideas or ways of 
doing things.

Relationships

We value people as individuals and 
strive for enjoyable and genuine interactions 
with everyone with whom we come in contact.
While we help to foster organizations that 
are ‘built to last’ we endeavour to create connections that continue. Ultimately, relationships drive results.
