What We Do

People are hard. You know it. You’ve seen it first hand. They have talent, drive, experience, yet somehow, sometimes, getting these talented people to work together as a group is just more difficult than it should be. Could your time be better spent elsewhere? If the answer is yes, the next answer you may want to know is how we can help.

Phillips Associates creates specialized processes and tools to help individuals and organizations push their boundaries of organizational, team and individual performance. We bring to each engagement a commitment to delivering what we know is possible. Even when you don’t.

We have built an enviable track of success based on three key principles:
Being accountable, relentless, and by working quickly.

“Using Phillips Associates to run our most important meetings has made a huge difference to our spirit and productivity. PA has helped us run our shareholders meeting, our executive committee meetings and all of our strategic planning sessions this year. Since PA has been with us, our meetings have gotten better and better and cost us less and less!”
