My firm, Circle Consulting Group, a leadership consultancy, is the birthplace of The Interpersonal Flexibility Circle (IFC) which has been successfully implemented in China, Korea, Germany, Brazil and the US through coaching, team development, organizational consulting and leadership training and development.
The Interpersonal Flexibility Circle explains relationships in a simple yet profound way. It provides a clear path to success in the most important relationships in life, whether family, school, or workplace. Leaders and their teams create new learning environments that enhance the lives of everyone in the organization while overachieving in terms of organizational goals.
The profound results Circle Consulting Group provides is derived from the strong foundation that has been built over decades from obtaining a PhD, doing clinical work, teaching on the Doctoral faculties in Counseling Psychology Programs and Organizational Behavior in the Marquette MBA program to developing the Interpersonal Flexibility Circle and Lifeline Process to enhance our leadership consulting programs.
This experience and foundation creates the process defined from the first coaching session with focused efforts that reframe beliefs, develop a leadership growth strategy, and measure your successes as you reach your goals.

Hope has an excellent executive coaching framework for improving the leadership skills of her clients. I was most impressed with the insightful techniques she used to quickly identify opportunities for advancing my leadership skills. Specifically, her “Interpersonal Circle” behavioral model helped me better understand those behaviors in my leadership style that could pose a threat to highly effective relationships (Self Awareness).Mike Minteer, Supply Management Executive, ILLINOIS

Hope was responsible for developing and improving the leadership skills of middle and upper management. In this position she was a very effective and patient group leader. In my opinion her leadership developmental skills were directly responsible for the growth of both sales and profitability during Quality Stores aggressive growth years.
