Business Consulting in New York and New Jersey

Ethan provides organizations with customized business consulting/coaching services in the areas of employee development, strategic planning, marketing/sales coaching, talent acquisition, recruiting, human capital development, and training & professional development. He is an approved Goldman Sachs 10,000 small businesses program growth coach.

Over the past 30 years, I have developed a proprietary 10-step process that I use when I begin engagements with organizations to develop their organization culture and workforce vitality. Here are those steps in the engagement “discovery” process:
  1. Administer an organization culture survey.
  2. Design their organization snapshot. Think “org chart” but with each individual’s influence, background, personality, abilities, training, education all identified.
  3. Individual skills mapping – match employee roles in their current job to their unused skills/potential. That’s the eROI gap or delta between what they are contributing and what their potential is.
  4. Employee ROI audit. What’s the return on your total people investment strategy. Outcome of #3.
  5. Projects, initiatives, plans that will require new skills, training, experience. Forms your future Talent Acquisition/Development strategy.
  6. Coaching , mentoring, sponsorship program development.
  7. Employee idea generation program creation.
  8. Employee satisfaction survey.
  9. Audit your entire people HR flow process (from Hire to Retire).
  10. Make culture transformation and people development recommendations – shift control from Management to people for a culture of autonomy.

Why My Clients Love Me

“As a young professional trying to expand my knowledge in marketing and management, Ethan has been a great coach. His charismatic approach to everything he does undoubtedly make him an easy person to talk to and learn from. Working with Ethan has certainly played a huge part in my overall growth as a professional and an individual. Thank you for the work you do Ethan, I have most definitely learned a lot from you about not only my field but also about myself as an individual.”

Emeka Diayi, Marketing Manager, British Swim School, Hudson Waterfront

“As someone who has seen relatively quick growth in my field, I believed I had things pretty well figured out. However, while things may have been going well, the truth is I had so much to learn. This is where Ethan came in. Ethan came in at a perfect time for me. A time where I felt I was doing well, but the overall company faced some struggles that thanks to Ethan’s coaching, I realized I could play a bigger role in fixing. Ethan is like a fountain of wisdom. His years of experience through multiple companies allows him to provide a perception of things that you wouldn’t have thought of. Not only is Ethan’s advice and assistance wise, it’s relatable, it’s palatable, it’s something that you enjoy listening to and putting into action. A lot of times you can go to a seminar, or have a training that can have valuable information, however, the way the information is presented to you makes it very ineffective. Ethan is different in this regard. He’s charismatic, personable, and really knows how to mold a message to help it have a stronger impact. Working with Ethan has had a huge impact on my development and on the way, I process things as a professional and an individual. With Ethan’s help, I feel I have become stronger at understanding how to maximize the efficiency of my team, as well as identify some situations that I would not normally think I was needed in or I could have an impact, and offer my knowledge and assistance. I sincerely thank you for your help, Ethan. I have truly learned a lot from you on how to better prepare, how to better react, and how to truly make my voice heard in an effective and helpful manner.”

Luis Gonzalez, Director of Operations, British Swim School – Hudson Waterfront

“I engaged Ethan’s services to provide ongoing leadership training for my management team. Over the course of his engagement, he has provided critically important one-on-one and group-based coaching that enabled each member to unleash their untapped potential and steer our business forward to ongoing profitability. Ethan has been highly effective at getting to know the inherent strengths and challenges of each individual, then developing and implementing successful coaching strategies that have enabled each individual to maximize their productivity by challenging them to embrace their fears, lean into discomfort and grow at maximum levels. Ethan is an important asset that I rely on to help grow my business.”

Robert Stapf, Franchise Owner, British Swim School, Hudson Waterfront

“I work as a Human Resources Manager for a rapidly growing company. Ethan was initially brought on to do a training with our leadership team about being an effective leader. The training went so well and our leaders valued his input so much that we decided to have him come on as a coach to myself and other employees within the organization that work in a leadership position. He also coaches the Owner and CEO of our company. Before Ethan came on board, we were experiencing some severe growing pains and our leadership team was struggling with many aspects of being effective leaders for their teams. There has been nothing, but improvements not just with the leaders as individuals, but with the company as a whole since we have started working with Ethan. We have Ethan come in monthly for one on ones and regularly reach out to him asking for guidance. He always provides useful and insightful solutions and guidance. Ethan will continue to work with our company indefinitely as he has been instrumental in the ongoing success and growth of our team and our company.”
