You’re not in it alone.

As a leader, you may feel that you are. Perhaps your board is disengaged.

The consulting practice of Sharpened Focus LLC focuses on board governance and other “better practices.” We’re known for unusual perception and for not taking a cookie-cutter approach to board development. We’ll address your particular needs rather than give some kind of boilerplate, forgettable “training.” Every situation is different, so we customize our board improvement process through leader coaching and a retreat that we call Focused Board.

We built this website to guide you through the questions you have regarding what you need, who we are, and how we can help you. If we serve you, it’s highly likely that you’ll feel encouragement, clarity, and relief. That’s what our other clients have said.

Why not click the button below to schedule a conversation. We’d like to hear your needs, encourage you a bit, and see if our services are a fit for your situation. We won’t pressure you. You have nothing to lose and peace of mind to gain.


The mission statement exercise was a genius way to bring about such affirming dialogue among board members . . . that they recognize what I put into my work here and that they have confidence in my leadership. For the first time, I felt like I had visitors to my "island." —HF, CEO, Michigan

Your insights, intuitiveness and intelligent approach have had so much impact! Your board training--compared to others we’ve had--was like going from black and white on a flat surface to brilliant color in 3-D. —LT, CEO, Ohio

Great job today, as always. Our board is engaged, excited about the present, and looking forward to the future. —HD, CEO, Colorado
