Solarcraft, Inc.: CEO

One thing I wish I had figured out a long time ago was the value of having a coach. Like him or no, Tom Brady, one of the best quarterbacks in football history, has a coach. I currently utilize about four coaches and one of the best I’ve seen is Keith Okano.
Keith and I have been working together for about six months. He has a way of asking great questions that get my mind thinking in the right direction which then leads to me asking him great questions. He is not afraid to tell me when he disagrees with what I’m doing – which is what I need.
I am proud to recommend Keith as a business coach. Let him inspire you the way he has me.

Some people look at coaching as a luxury but I truly believe it is a necessity for the Owners of businesses of any size. As owners, it is easy to get in your own head and lose focus of goals. Keith has helped get my financials dashboard in order, understand the worth of my business and my value in the business equation. I am taking the steps to become an owner instead of being an operator.
As a small business, I rely on my mentor as a sounding board. Insight from an outside party helps give, ideas as well as problems, perspective, create solutions and define goals. The value of a good Mentor/Coach goes beyond the initial monetary cost and translates directly to the bottom line.

Mosaic Consulting: Owner

“I began consulting with Keith when I was at a critical phase in my leadership role. I spent so much of my time working on client projects that I was not giving my position as company President the attention it needed. When I reached out to Keith I was struck by his desire to understand and absorb everything about my company that he could. With that clarity, he provided insight and ideas that I would have missed on my own. As a result, I made some tough (but good) choices for the business, and have taken important steps to be a strategic leader with a vision for better management and growth. He's a great resource when external wisdom is needed. You'd be smart to work with him.”

His combination of experience-based advice and mastery of developing financial and strategic models to drive business decisions and action are specifically what helped me most. Keith helped boost my confidence in making the right decisions to take my business to the next stage of growth. Any small or medium business owner or leader should give him a call. I'm so glad I met him.”
