We Specialize In
Growing leaders, businesses, and organizations
Leadership and Organization Development is our passion!
Progressive companies and organizations believe in and practice a leadership philosophy that empowers, engages, and develops the people they employ. To accomplish this training and development has to be incorporated into the senior, mid-level, and emerging leadership levels.
Equally important, leaders understand that employees/members need to be engaged “in the business of the business.” They build strong, effective and motivated teams. They involve their people in planning and decision making. They regularly demonstrate the degree to which their people are valued.
Leaders of forward thinking businesses and organizations realize that their most important asset is their people, and they continuously invest in them.
Our Signature Engagements Include
Senior leaders, those at the mid-level, and individuals providing leadership without a formal position all benefit and grow when they lead with their strengths. While managing their weaknesses, they focus on improving by accentuating their strengths.Read more
Is it time to control events rather than letting events control you? How much longer can you afford “business as usual?” Deciding to stay the same in today’s world, where change is not only rapid but accelerating, is really a decision to fall behind.Read more

"It was truly a pleasure working with Dave and Rachel of Simply Superior Consulting. In guiding United Way through its strategic planning process this past fall, they were professional throughout the process, proficient at every stage and incredibly pleasant to everyone from the beginning to the end. As a result, United Way now has a very comprehensive Strategic Plan that will guide it into the next several years. We highly recommend their services to everyone.”

"As a business that has earned the Best Practices Designation in the insurance industry for the past 7 consecutive years, we pride ourselves on delivering a great customer experience. That being said, we always know there is another level that can be achieved. Working with Simply Superior Consulting has proven not only that we can get better, but “how” we can. Rachel and Dave shared their insight with our team on how we can, and why it is important to continue to strive to that next level. Their great communication skills had our team highly engaged; they were energized and thoroughly enjoyed their time with them."
Chris VanAble, CFO and Scott White, CEO

They tailored their delivery specifically to our needs, so what we received was a personalized leadership, teambuilding, and personal strengths development program. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Dave and Rachel, and would recommend this to anyone looking to enhance their most valuable asset – their people!"

“My experience with Dave & Rachel with Simply Superior Consulting was nothing less than superlative. They made the whole process of strategic planning a much more palatable experience for a person who may struggle with this kind of thing. The best part was how they led the focus group meetings and made each and every person feel comfortable. The way in which Dave & Rachel walked us through this process of strategic planning emphasized a core value of ours at the St. Francis Connection Center- that each and every person has intrinsic value. I did not know strategic planning could be so much fun or helpful to the work we do.”
Very Rev. Allen P. Mott, Pastor
St. Anthony’s Parish
"Dave and Rachel led our strategic planning process with focus and purpose. Their leadership created an atmosphere of inclusion, and the input we received from our small group discussions provided our board with the information necessary to create a relevant and living document…our strategic plan for moving forward and meeting the needs of our guests and our community."

"Dave Bonsall and Rachel Harris are two of our nation’s most innovative and character driven leadership development specialists. Their consulting has emerged from professional lives spent developing thousands of tomorrow’s leaders today. Their programs “The Student Leader Fellow Program” and “The Superior Edge” are national award winners because they integrate students and professionals into relationships that benefit both. Dave and Rachel know, and make it clear, that they are not the message, but rather the messengers of a transformative vision of leadership as service. I have spoken to over 3,000 corporate and collegiate campuses to 3 million students, corporate executives, and professional staff. Dave Bonsall and Rachel Harris carry my highest recommendation as leadership development consultants, and human beings."

"We engaged Simply Superior Consulting to evaluate our businesses from the outside looking in, to take that information and facilitate our strategic planning sessions. We found the experience with them to be insightful and direct. They were able to bring a new direction to our strategic planning process. They were able to steer our leadership team throughout the planning sessions which resulted in a very productive, focused and high level self-evaluation."

"When we heard a new competitor was coming into our town, we knew that our employees would be a huge asset in helping us compete with them. Dave and Rachel with Simply Superior Consulting were called upon to meet with our staff. They conducted meetings with our managers and held small group discussions with our employees. Both Dave and Rachel have an innate ability in getting employees to open up to them. After compiling data, they met with the owners to develop a strategy to prepare our store for our new competition. We are pleased with the services both Dave and Rachel provided."

"The Superiorland Library Cooperative contracted with Simply Superior Consulting to facilitate two Advisory Board of Librarians meetings. The group had not met in several years, and Dave did a masterful job in pulling the groups together and helping them set a well-defined course for the future. We plan to hire Simply Superior Consulting again next year to continue with our progress."
