Our Mission

Listen First Consulting, LLC is a company established with a dual purpose.

First, it is designed specifically to help adults who are at a transition point in life such as: 

  • a change in their work status or livelihood 

  • returning to the community from incarceration

  • divorce/separation or death of a loved one or

  • facing financial uncertainty and need assistance in identifying next steps and direction for themselves

We do this by offering an established personal insight program which helps individuals focus on their innate talents and gifts. This is a ninety-day guided coaching program which helps individuals identify what career path is best suited to them. Development of a professional resume is available in this program.

Second, Listen First Consulting, LLC provides for the facilitation of effective communication practices for small business owners who are experiencing and have identified low morale as a barrier to production or goal accomplishment among their employees. This program begins with a program assessment of current communications practices and ends with a new communication practice model.
