Inspiring Positive Outcomes


Just like the folktale that inspired our name, Stone Soup Performance Consulting aims to get everyone in your “town” contributing to a delicious and nourishing, proverbial pot of soup that all can savor. 

To this end, we:

  • Partner with you to identify your organizational goals
  • Identify the roadblocks impeding employee performance
  • Craft strategies to align your workforce with your goals, foster a collaborative environment and help individuals, managers and leaders achieve combined, sustainable success.

Our soup to nuts approach focuses on three areas—Strategic Alignment, HR Consulting and Team Development.

Every good recipe starts with a vision. Stone Soup Performance Consulting’s proven Strategic Alignment process starts with defining your organizational goals and desired results. Once the table is set, each person will have a clear sense of where your business is headed, their seat at the table and how they can contribute. 

Our systematic approach to developing an action plan for sustainable success includes:

  • Understanding your corporate values and their effects. How might those values impede productivity? On the flip side, how might those values propel your people to success?
  • Defining your goals and identifying initiatives to achieve them. 
  • Examining environmental and human behaviors that influence collaboration and productivity in your workplace. 
  • Identifying your existing practices to maximize the employee experience and recommending strategies to enhance those elements.
