About HHPS: Business coaching


Business coaching: What can a non-profit organization and a $1.1 billion integration teach each other?

You may think nothing at all, and you would be missing valuable insight.  In each case, an analysis has to take place, starting with the determination of the mission, vision and goals of each organization.  If you do not know where you are going, how can you measure how close you are to reaching your destination?

As leader of the HHPS team, Ed is able to take the best practices developed in these two diverse organizations, add them with his other endeavors, which fall between these two extremes, and help you translate strategy into actionable steps.  Specifically, in the private sector, Ed has spent time in pharmaceutical, medical device, start-up, and non-profit industries.  These follow a career which began with the Navy nuclear power program, as well as sharing his knowledge as an ROTC instructor at NC State University.

Ed’s ability to pull best practices from such diverse organizations is certainly one major advantage for your organization.  But even that is not enough for strategic success.  Leadership is about bringing out the best in others. Ed can best be described as a functional expert with a passion for people.  Those who know him best see a lifetime of service to others, including a strong passion for recognizing the business value of cognitive, rather than physical diversity, which is not a guarantor of the former.

Ed has an extensive and diverse network, including the Greater Philadelphia Senior Executives Group, biopharma, Naval Academy & North Carolina State University alumni groups, and the differently-abled, especially individuals who are blind or low vision.

The bottom line is, Ed will build the ideal team to meet your organizational strategic initiatives, guaranteeing you a one-stop solution.
