Welcome to Pretty Good Consulting!








I’m delighted to announce that we our preparing for my “Influence, Change, & Politics in the Organization” graduate course for the University of Illinois, School of Labor and Employment Relations. This course is a continuation of the School’s effort to expand their audience by offering high-quality coursework in an online environment. I’m looking forward to a great shared learning experience with the new cohort.

One of the topics we always discuss is the student’s position in their organization… how much power they have, how much influence they have… and how to increase those levels. The truth is that you can never have enough. Business cycles are inevitable and I often find acquaintances and colleagues being blind-sided by layoffs. So it is probably a good time for me to remind you again to keep cultivating your network. The time to work on your network is when you are employed. When you are unemployed, it is too late.

Also, I am very excited to announce that my 2-day course for Marcus Evans titled, “Strategic Workforce Planning Master Class: Human Resource Strategies for Success” is available as an in-house program. Please let your associates know about this opportunity if it would benefit them. Here’s a link for the details: http://www.me-assets.com/HTMLEmail/Workforce_398.pdf

But hey… you probably came here to talk business. I’d be delighted to talk with you about any Performance Improvement, Human Capital Development or Strategy Development needs that you might have. Oh, and if “Pretty Good” doesn’t sound “good enough” for you, please don’t forget that we offer a performance guarantee on all our contracts. I’m operating out of Bucerias, Mexico now, so email is the easiest way to get a hold of me.  Schultz8101 at  gmail.com will do just fine.
