Staff and leadership development is an area he is extremely passionate about. He has developed a Professional/Personal Growth Program (P²GP), which provides your organization with an actively monitored performance-enhancement strategy and roadmap. Individuals are able to integrate goals (career and personal) that allow them to be more motivated, focused and productive. The P²GP focuses on leadership development, self-discipline (time/goal management, focus, self-motivation, etc.) and EQ (communication, relationship management, etc) skills.
Mr. Kern delivers solutions that revolve around a comprehensive set of IT methodologies that concentrate on identifying, measuring, improving the ability of IT to deliver against the business value-chain. Most importantly, the results enable his clients to articulate that value to the business, demonstrating alignment with key value streams such as revenue, market share, cost reduction, customer satisfaction, and operating efficiencies.
He is hoping that his experience in building high-performance organizations, which are aligned with business objectives, will allow for an opportunity to sit down with you and discuss how he may be of some assistance.
