Leadership is  the activity of leading a group of PEOPLE and an organization and the ability to do so. When you can achieve this you move from being a manager to  being a Leader.


 It involves pushing past beliefs to get to the facts / realities.  It is about sharing a vision, providing knowledge and methods and balancing conflicting interests  to move the people in the organization from scattered to focused, from being avoiders to being  problems solvers, from being fractured to being aligned as a team. The result is that the people and the organization move from mediocrity to excellence. At Socius Business Advisors  we will tailor your program from our end-to-end consultative services to help leaders cut through the clutter and achieve success.

Why do Business Owners, Equity Groups, and Company Presidents Choose Socius Business Advisors?

You talk,  We listen.  

Any good business person knows you first have to listen to your client.  We do, and if you will let us, we also listen to your customer’s and potential customer’s about needs, wants, competition, goals and objectives.  We ask probing questions to get to the heart of the matter.

We Discuss. 

Frequently, in the process, we lay out our findings and discuss situations.  We put our heads together with you and your staff to combine our years of experience with your know how.  That’s right we said, “your know how”.  If you want to be successful at executing a plan, it must be a plan that can be executed.

We Debate. 

At Socius Business Advisors we also expect though-provoking debate.  It is what we strive for, for when attained, we break through barriers and get resolution.  Then and only then are we well enough advised to respond.

We Deliver!

Socius Business Advisors is Not Your Ordinary Consulting Group.  

We know that the majority of consultant’s business plans and reports go unexecuted.  Why, because most consultants either base their plan on their capabilities, not yours, or tell you what needs to be done, then leave. And when they do that 50 page report normally goes into someone’s drawer never to see the light of day. We consider that a waste of your time and ours. Our professional make up is to take on projects that will be fulfilled. Pardon if this seems blunt. If you have no intention of executing then hire someone else.

1. Socius Business Advisors are skilled in what we do. We listen to your needs, and send the best people for the job.

2. Socius Business Advisors realize that our clients are business leaders that seek help.  You are not a rookie, so why do other consultants treat you like one.   Our Collaborative Mentoring seeks to jointly deal with you, your strengths, and your needs and not waste time by treating you as a novice.

3. At Socius Business Advisors, we always keep in mind the adage “teach a man to fish…”, and we strive to not only help you solve today’s issues,  but prepare you for the future.


“When our clients succeed, we succeed!”

Collaborative Mentoring is “The Better Approach”

  • Collaboration is the act of working together.
  • The word mentor comes from the Greek word for “guide”.


We have all heard the phrase, “two heads are better than one”. At Socius Business Advisors we believe that through open collaboration between your team and ours that we attain the best results.   From true collaborations comes clarity, function, people who are focused on the same goals, that’s why at Socius Business Advisors we talk with you, not at you, and that is why we believe the Socius Business Advisors way is “the better approach!”


Collaborative Mentoring seeks to jointly deal with you, your strengths, your knowledge, and your needs and not waste time by resorting to treating you as a novice.  At Socius Business Advisors we expect thought-provoking debate.  It is what we strive for, for when attained, we break through barriers and get resolution.
