Why is it that most everyone has a story about working for a bad boss, but nobody ever admits to being a bad boss? Do we have a roving band of bad boss bandits terrorizing the country one employee at a time? Or, is it because we judge ourselves against our intentions, but we judge other against their actions?
Nobody plans to be a bad boss, but most people don’t plan to not be a bad boss either. Do you have a plan? When I left corporate America in 2010, I founded The Hardie Consulting Group because I saw firsthand the carnage created by the gap between intention and action.
Bridging the gap between intention and action is the foundation of trusting relationships. I've spent my career helping organizations, teams, and leaders align their people, purpose, and processes, the cornerstone building the ultimate competitive advantage, one that can never be copied ... a highly engaged organization.
As a speaker, coach, consultant, and author, everything I do centers around my quest to inspire leaders to inspire people. I believe when we invest our mental, physical, and emotional energy to bridging the gap between intention and action, we can change someone's world. If you want to unlock your organization's greatest competitive advantage, and change your world, let's talk. I can't wait to help!
Hardie Consulting was founded during the early days of the "retailocalypse", just as customers, employees, and society in general were beginning to demand a change to business as usual.
For more than two decades, our founder, Scott Brown, had helped maverick leaders become outliers, delivering exceptional results by working differently. He had helped them create a culture of engagement, which proved to be the foundation of changing he employee, and customer experiences. He helped them transform their potential into performance. But he wasn't satisfied to help a few, he wanted to help the many.
Scott knew the key to thriving in this new world was to close the gap between intention and action, to help organizations align their people, purpose, and processes. He knew the key was in creating trust.
Trusting relationships, the type that are the foundation of the employee and customer experience, are created by aligning what you do, say, and believe. His experience had shown him that the same principles applied to individuals, teams, and organizations. Unsatisfied to simply know alignment was the key to unlocking an organization's potential, he set out to prove it.
As he earned a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership, Scott worked tirelessly to refine and validate his theory. Ultimately, his theory became a thesis, his thesis became a book, and his book became his life's work.
Hardie Consulting is here to help you create an organization built for tomorrow's demands. We're here to help you build an organization that aligns what it does, says, and believes. We’re here to help you be the leader you always wished you had.
Successful leaders have three things in common … they lead with empathy, perspective, and courage. Great leaders align them.
The most successful organizations, teams, and groups draw on the experiences, strengths, and talents of every member of their team, not just a select few. They develop a culture dedicated to fully engaging the heads, hands, and hearts of their people. They build trust, commitment, and the energy to ensure the entire organization succeeds.
Influences and expectations that held true just a few years ago, have become obsolete, replaced by an ever-growing understanding that tomorrow’s world does not care about the source of solutions nearly as much as it cares about the effectiveness of those solutions. Our goal is to help you find the right solutions to your challenges.
We'll help you align how you select, manage, develop, engage, and communicate with your people, customers, and prospects. We'll help you develop the systems needed to change the way you work. We’ll help you build the healthy, reciprocal, authentic relationships needed to navigate through an ever-expanding minefield of obstacles and challenges.

Your employee's experience is the foundation of your customer's experience. Unfortunately, statistics show that roughly 3 out of every 4 employees is either apathetic towards your organization, or actively working against your success. OUCH!
Why are so few employees fully engaged in their organization's success? Largely because far too many of them don't believe their employer cares about them. Maya Angelou could have been talking about the modern workplace when she said, "People may forget what you do, and what you say, but they never forget how you make them feel." How are you making your people feel? Unappreciated? Valued? Vital to your success?
Do your leaders, managers, and supervisors say one thing, but do something else? Do you think a paycheck is all that matters to your people? Have you confused the results you achieve with why you chose this business in the first place? Do you know why your employees chose you?
