Selfless.ly is Corporate Social Responsibility in a box. Think a virtual foundation (at a fraction of the cost). Now any business — no matter the size — can reap the benefits of a high quality CSR program.

The results? Reduced turnover costs, work culture infused with more meaning, and igniting the highest levels of employee motivation.

Before working with Applied Ideals, my company was functioning but not growing... [Their executive coaching] helped me focus and improve my leadership... As a result, I gained confidence, made tough decisions to grow a better team, and received our first $10,000 in funding!!

Before working with Applied Ideals, my company was functioning but not growing.

I really wanted an outside perspective on how to move the needle forward. And I needed to shift my thinking — focusing on my leadership and what is needed for us to succeed.

THE EXPERIENCE

After signing up I felt relieved. I needed someone to talk with. And after a few sessions I felt determined.

I like our Monday morning meetings as they are a nice boost for my thinking and get me out of my head.

THE BREAKTHROUGH

  Joshua also founded Founder of    Open For Service   , a non-partisan 501c3 organization that is rapidly building a worldwide community of diversity-supporting businesses, churches, organizations, employers, and consumers to celebrate inclusiveness regardless of politics.

For example, I got the confidence to try my first sales pitch on social media.

And the most valuable insight I received was a mindset shift. Now I better know my role and value at Selfless.ly

Would I recommend Applied Ideals executive coaching?

Yes - I would.

You can read all of the blogs and articles about how to start a company, but it’s important to have someone to talk to and walk you through what it takes.

It's also important to look for coaching outside of your current network. Oftentimes we fall to the same people for mentorship and lose the innovation we are all seeking. I find a lot of benefit from Daniel’s perspective.
