About IfPE

The Institute for Purposeful Excellence (IfPE) is an Industrial and Organizational (I/O) Psychology Management Consulting boutique that works with teams, and individuals in a collaborative partnership to achieve desired business and individual success throughout the organization. Our measured success is built on eight fundamental proven principles that include Purpose, People, Passion, Process, Performance, Product, Profit, and Prayer.

Our I/O Psychology Consulting and Coaching Philosophy

IfPE’s consulting and coaching success is derived from implementing a combination of effective proven organizational psychology consulting tools, assessments, cognitive principals, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and processes that change behaviors, beliefs, and assumptions to arrive in alignment with your desired business and personal outcomes.

Consider this: In Life and in Business, your “thoughts” (vision – ideas – what-if) followed by your “actions” (plan, execute, measure, calibrate, repeat), will create “things”(education, experiences, family, love, jobs, home, cash flow)! All of which is derived from your energy (passion and purpose).  So if you want to improve your business and culture, you need to know the beliefs and assumptions that every employee has when making critical decisions.

Albert Einstein stated that ‘Insanity’ is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Is your Leadership Team aligned with the people? Are they moving the business forward and developing the people. Are your Leaders…developing Leaders?

IfPE adds structure (Organizational Design & Development) to your business and your team. Is your Leadership team operating on a foundation of Core Values & Behaviors that drive Purpose, People, Passion, Process, Performance, Product, Profit, and Prayer?
