What We Do

What is Success?

The definition of success is different for every organization and every leader. We all want it, but do you know how to achieve it?

Achieving success starts with mapping out an extraordinary plan. Very rarely do organizations take the same path to the top and that is why our approach is unique and efficient. We take a customized approach for every single one of our clients. By building a relationship with you and asking the right questions, we are able to quickly grasp your needs and develop an effective plan and strategy accordingly.


We work alongside business owners, executives, leaders and managers at all levels to leverage their strengths as they overcome their leadership gaps and grow in their effectiveness. Our work with leaders involves everything from charting the course for growth, facilitating the transition into new managerial roles, learning how to implement and structure change and guiding you to organizational clarity.

Our team has the ability to quickly grasp your needs and develop a road map for success. We understand that your time and your money is valuable so we are able to develop a plan that is timely and effective.

“Working together with Summit to develop and deliver a customized change management program has been a very positive experience. The change management training provided people leaders with a common language and practical tips on how to respond to change and inspire their teams to accept change. By utilizing DiSC® we had a better understanding of ourselves and others in the organization, how to better communicate with each other and build meaningful relationships.”

Human Resources

Human Resources is one of the most integral components of every business and instrumental to the smooth operation and development of your organization. It’s the foundation of a successful and well-oiled operation. Far too often we see that a company’s HR is not at the forefront of their operating and growth strategy when it really should be.

We have the expertise to guide every aspect of your HR needs and can develop the solutions that work for you, to align with the corporate culture that you’ve created. Businesses of all sizes need an HR strategy and solutions, regardless if you have a team of two or two hundred, we will ensure you have the tools and the approaches you require to lead a healthy and productive team.

“When we took the plunge to hire a Human Resource consultant, we struggled with the necessity of it. When we hired Stephanie and her team at Summit Organizational Development they immediately put us to ease with their support and expertise with all manner of human resource processes and growth. From handling questions, big or small or even silly, that I send their way to team building events, they do it all and we’ve been impressed with the results.

Val Fehr has worked alongside my supervisors and I to establish an atmosphere that is fair and consistent for all employees. It’s still a work in progress but we wouldn’t have gotten this far with out her. Invest in your company. I highly recommend Summit Organizational Development.”
