To me, the successful outcome of my partnership with clients is their job and career satisfaction. After candid and creative analysis, one client may decide to stay put with a renewed sense of purpose, enthusiasm and potential success. Another may decide to map out an entirely new and different career path. As their personal mentor and professional consultant, what I care about most is their success; in other words, their ultimate job satisfaction. And I’m indefatigable in my efforts to ensure that satisfaction. -Stanley Krejci, Founding Principal, The SK Group, LLC
