Business Success Begins with Us

Our Focus






At JR&A, we like to think of ourselves as the antidote to meandering meetings; repetition without results; and thick Powerpoint decks which lack power and miss the point! 

In brief, we help leaders who know something is broken, missing or misaligned  in their People, Talent Practices or Talent Systems--but they can't pinpoint the problem. In a nutshell, we define, frame and root out issues that impact revenue growth and business health.  

We work with emerging and leading companies largely (not exclusively) across four industries, bringing our wealth of hands-on leadership experience to each assignment:

  • Financial Services

  • Data Science and Technology (High Growth)

  • Healthcare (Administration and Delivery)

  • Nonprofit/Social Services


HR Solutions / Business Coaching

Successfully coached Boards and CEOs through key business stages

  • Advisor to Board Chair/Board members through sensitive change management issues

  • Diversity & Inclusion assessments and recommendations

  • Strategic/Operational Planning, linked to Budget Process

  • New Business Models for Equity Partnerships

  • C-Suite Coaching and Support

  • Business coach and advisor
    to leaders in high-growth stage environments

Talent Acquisition

Completed searches for C-Suite/senior roles within aggressive timelines through innovative research and sourcing strategies

  • Leveraging decades of business experience to couple business advisory with search services--at no extra cost

  • Unbundling services to provide best-in-class candidate names, biographical reports, personality assessments, and/or salary negotiation strategies

  • Serving as an extension of the client's internal recruiting team to accelerate the search process on a budget

Talent Management 

Led HR transformation to establish best-practice models 

  • Designing business-driven strategies and goals

  • Performing traditional and strategic HR audits to improve revenue and business health

  • Advising CEOs/C-Suite/CHRO and People Team on organizational design structures 

  • Designing and facilitating offsite business retreats to strengthen teams 

  • Establishing business and market-driven Compensation Philosophy and Total Rewards

Examples of Our Work

Our diagnostic approach is used to shape customized recommendations and actionable strategies.

The best way to learn what JR&A can do for you and/or your business is to schedule time with us. During this 45-minute complimentary initial consultation, we will work to quickly identify your most pressing needs, key priorities and longer-term objectives. These initial consultations are focused, probing and enlightening.

Once we agree to work together, we are confident that you'll see measurable results - and that the journey itself will be rewarding.


“Success is not final; failure is not fatal:

It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Winston Churchill
