Meet Your Metro Indy Coaches

dr. craig overmyer

For 20 years, I have worked with business owners and executive leadership teams of privately held and family-owned businesses who are preparing the next generation of leaders. Since 1999, I have worked with hundreds of business owners of growth firms that double in size every 3 to 5 years who often yearn to be set free from three snares: (1) sucked into daily operations, (2) tolerating underperforming teams, and (3) failing to get everyone on the same page. This takes a toll and drains precious time, energy, and cash flow.

As a business owner, how much time would you save if you were free from worrisome checking in on the success or failure of your business or organization? Our purpose at Cultures That Work is to create a partnering climate of value-creating service that results in freeing up more time, energy, and resources for C-level executives and business owners as well as their leaders and teams.

Our tools include cultural transformation tools such as the Cultural Values Assessment and the Emplify Quarterly Survey as well as coaching. My specialty is Mindful Leadership at Every Level, a leadership approach that will show you how to create an engaged, coachable, accountable, and productive culture that works through In-The-Moment Conversations for productive conflict.

Cultures That Work clients include Crew Carwash, Birge & Held, Barrett & Stokely, California Closets, Renovia, CertaPro Painters® of Indianapolis, Kittle Property Group, Witham Hospital, BerryIT, The Atkins Group, and Indy Implants.

Hear From Other Businesses Who Have Scaled With Us

Using the Scaling Up methodologies, we have helped dozens of businesses and leadership teams successfully scale in the last decade.

“Dr. Overmyer has been a longtime advocate of Renovia and our pursuit of growth. His ability to get at the core of an issue has allowed our Executive Team to go further, faster. Besides his vast experience, he has his heart in seeing others succeed. His ability to stay present and in the moment is unmatched and a must-have for any high level coach.”

– Chris Hall, Vice President of Sales, Renovia

“Craig’s approach to ‘scaling up’ has been instrumental in Birge & Held’s growth from a small apartment owner with $100 million in assets to one of the largest multifamily apartment owners in the Midwest with over $1 billion in AUM.”

– J. Taggert “Tag” Birge, President & CEO, Cornerstone

“This Scaling Up process and our coach, Dan Hurley, has really changed me and my company. I no longer feel like I am doing it by myself. Everyone is clear on who we are, where we are going, and how we are going to get there. We are truly a team now.”

– Jeff Floyd, Wm. Floyd Company

“While my team (I have a 4-member senior leadership team) and I thought we understood all the various things we were doing around marketing, sales, delivery, service, and follow-up, Dan has helped bring us to a new and more insightful level.

A huge piece of why we have been and continue to be successful is that Dan uses the Scaling Up model, as well as other useful tools from his deep and storied history.

He has an amazing way of delivering ideas, good news, bad news and suggestions that don’t come across as the “paid consultant” telling you what to do.”

– Brian Mittman, Markoff and Mittman

Here are other clients we have worked with

Congratulations!  

We’ve been helping companies grow their businesses from 7 figures to 8 figures or 8 figures to 9 figures and even 10 figures in a clear, concise, and well-developed way. We’ve worked with hundreds of CEOs, business owners, and executive leaders like you, to alleviate the barriers to growth such as:

  • The inability to staff/grow enough leaders, especially the executive leadership team, who have the capabilities to delegate and predict
  • The lack of scalable infrastructure to handle the complexity of communication and decision making through productive conflict resolution
  • Carrying too much of the load of daily operations rather than spending most of the time on market facing activities
