PVD System

The big hurdle for many owner/operators is that they simply don’t have the time or resources to adequately address ongoing workplace leadership and culture issues. As a result, small problems become big problems. The organization loses its sense of direction and profitability suffers.

High Performance developed the PVD System to give small businesses an efficient and sustainable framework for addressing leadership and culture issues that affect financial growth and profitability, decision making, crisis management, organizational unity, and more. The PVD System harnesses the power of Purpose, Vision, and Disciplines to clearly define what you are, where you are going, and how to get there as an organization.

We begin the process with a conversation. We want to hear your story and your specific challenges. Once we clearly understand your goals and challenges, we begin leading you through the PVD System.

Ascend PVD

While helping organizations navigate leadership and culture issues, we discovered that many young accountants lacked critical skills that could benefit their firms and their personal careers as well. As a Top 50 accounting firm, we understand the value of leadership training for our young accounting colleagues and years ago developed Ascend PVD to address this need. Now, we are making Ascend PVD available to accounting firms across the country with a series of two-hour quarterly workshops using the framework of Purpose, Vision, and Disciplines to create exceptional leaders.
