Here’s what our clients have to say about In-Synk.

Michael recently spent two days in Denver, CO with my Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) Family Business Forum. Michael provided some great Gazelles coaching based on his “Rock & Sand” model, and led a special breakout session on cash flow. It was very valuable time and money spent for our forum of CEO’s of family businesses. Great job, Michael! We appreciate your time!

As a business owner, I’ve always known what I needed to do to scale, but often lack the focus to get it done. After participating in one of Michael’s workshops, we implemented the daily huddles into our business. Doesn’t always work perfectly but works far better than our old method of quasi team communication. Imagine my surprise at one huddle when I told everyone that my goal was to hire some new folks to handle a lot of new business we had just brought on. One of my employees spoke up and said “Why? Why do we need to hire more people. We can handle it.” And handle it they did. Couldn’t be prouder of my team and I credit the daily huddles aided by Michael Synk.

It is with sincere appreciation that I am writing to recommend the services of In-Synk!

Our organization started working with MIchael, “Synk”, early 2017. We were struggling to outline a solid strategy for our team, a strategy with clear objectives and goals. We knew where we wanted to go, but needed help on the “how to get there” part.

With Synk’s guidance, our team has been able to not only get the train on the tracks, but get the train on the right tracks. Synk has been instrumental in helping us define our goals and develop the strategy that makes sense for us. His expertise in Strategic Thinking and Plan Execution has been a tremendous help to our organization.

I am happy to recommend the services of Michael Synk.

Chris Herrera

President, Arcom Systems

As a group of professionals in our industry came together to form a new team, we knew we would need some guidance toward long-term success upfront-both communicating with each other and developing a long-term plan. Synk had a great, easy way of helping us develop our own unique business strategy that has enabled us to start moving toward our common goal. His teambuilding and business sense were a great fit for us, and I would highly recommend his coaching to anyone who wants to start things on the right foot, or get their business process in line.

I was talking to my partner just the other day, and asked him to tell me why we are $1 million ahead of the same point last year. Two words. When he couldn’t answer I told him. Michael Synk.

Everyone at Grass Roots believes investing in Synk’s coaching was one of the best business decisions we’ve ever made. We have seen dramatic improvements in employee engagement, execution, cash management, and strategic alignment. The ROI on the investment is through the roof. If you’re a small business that’s struggling to get your team alined and strategy in place, Synk is the guy for you.

Infoplus is a better company today having enlisted the help of Michael and In-Synk. We brought Michael in to review our business development process and help us re-confirm our brand message and promise. After spending a day on site with us, Michael was able to guide us through the process of developing a message and process that has taken our business development to even greater heights. His continued guidance and ongoing communications are an asset as we consider Michael an extension of our team here at Infoplus. I have nothing but high praise for Michael and In-Synk.

Last year’s Scaling Up Workshop was an essential improvement over trying to implement what I learned in a book and trying to bring it to the company myself. Our team came back from the workshop all having heard the same things, held each other accountable to things done, and several of these valuable lessons have stuck — improving our business substantially.

JP Revel

CEO and EO St. Louis Member, Lelander

Our leadership team attended Michael’s workshop last year, which interested us so much we signed up for a full seminar. Michael’s ideas, advice, and expertise were great in helping us consider different approaches to increasing revenue, as well as improving our processes and culture. We’ve been using the Rock and Sand system for some months now and it helps us get some of those bigger projects completed while still doing the day-to-day tasks. My department uses the daily huddle idea and the staff agrees they like doing it, even if it is “another meeting.” As an overall approach to running the business, I found Michael’s presentation truly valuable.

Mary McGurk

Business Manager , The Brennan Group

My leadership team attended Michael Synk’s EO learning event with me last fall and we have benefited greatly from some of his simple insights into financial principles and managing top priorities. As entrepreneurs we are always focused on growing our business revenue by doing more deals. This workshop helped us realize how we can increase profits and manage our expenses much more effectively. The time we invested in this event has paid big dividends.

Michael Synk’s Rockefeller Habits and Strategic Planning sessions with CodeCrew were well worth the investment. In just a short period, CodeCrew has already been positively impacted and I believe we will not only stay focused on a solid strategy, but also soundly execute such that we can fulfill our mission and achieve our vision. I highly recommend companies of all stripes, including startups and nonprofits like us, to take advantage of the first-class insights gained from participating in these sessions.

Michael is awesome! Really. The help Michael has given our third-generation, 70-year-old business has been inspiring to everyone on our team. “Team.” That is what Michael has helped us develop, a hungry, humble, smart group of individuals working together toward a common goal. Often we get stuck inside the walls of our day-to-day grind, and forget to look past our own desk to see how we are affecting each other within our own business, and question “How is this affecting our overall performance? Is my team engaged? Have things become stale? I feel like we are just pushing sand around? Are we planning for the future in a meaningful way?” Michael isn’t going to put you in a box or wave a magical wand to discover the answers to those issues. He’s going to help educate you and your people on finding ways to answer them yourself in a meaningful way that will encourage growth and focus with in your entire company. Since working with Michael in early 2015 our management team is more engaged, focused, and communicating at a higher level than ever before. This is all in thanks to the thoughtful attention, techniques, and knowledge Michael has brought to our team.

As the CEO and owner of Arcom Systems, I realized that our company needed help in the development but, more importantly, the execution of a strategic plan. Synk has done an outstanding job of helping us move our ideas and dreams to a reality. He is gifted in leading and training us through a process that will benefit our company for years to come. Please reach out to me if you would like to know more about Synk and the Scaling Up system — I wholeheartedly endorse Synk.

Working with Michael has been a great experience. He is encouraging and quickly makes you feel comfortable while addressing gaps and opportunities for improvement. He is a great listener and has a unique ability to get to understand the complexities of any obstacles, impediments, challenges and inefficiencies and quickly find ways to make improvements. I would recommend Michael to anyone who is thinking about growth and realizes that status quo isn’t working. He has helped me get a better handle on how to grow my business.

Don Adams

Owner and CEO , Mid-South Casters

Michael Synk worked with our company for a day-and-a-half session. In a day-and-a-half we worked through personal and company traits that have derailed us for years. We also worked on strengths, weaknesses and core values. We made more progress in this time frame working with Michael than we have in years. All this has led us to move ahead and hire Michael to continue our progress. I could not be more happy with the entire teams commitment to want to work with Michael Synk.

Marc Taillion

Owner and EO St. Louis Member , Corrective Asphalt Materials

Michael presented to my EO forum group on the topic of leadership and it was great. He led an interactive workshop and made great use of the hour. We came away energized, more informed, and excited to implement some of the ideas Michael had shared with us. I would definitely recommend him.

Kelsey Meyer

Co-Founder and EO St. Louis Member , Influence & Co

Synk helped our team develop a clear direction and rhythm. We’ve tried setting goals before but lacked the execution strategy to achieve those goals. Synk’s coaching is helping our team develop the right habits and has put us on a much more focused and successful trajectory.

Cody Hopkins

General Manager , Grassroots Farmers' Cooperative

We engaged Michael over two years ago to help us reinvent ourselves. Our business, though profitable, lacked the focus and vision to get to the next level. We felt like we were spinning our wheels and just running in place. With Michael’s help, we came up with long- and short-term goals, we identified the tasks that would lead to our goals, and started holding ourselves accountable to perform those tasks. We are still a work in progress, but I feel that hiring Michael was the best decision that I have made in years.

David George

Partner , Mills Wilson George

Michael has been a much-needed source of support in coaching me and our team through a challenging transition. We developed our company’s core values, purpose, and promise as the necessary foundation for how we were going to move forward. He has helped me think through hiring needs and the need to “top grade” the open positions, His coaching helped our group define the top priorities for each quarter and for the year. We now have a clear path forward and a strategy of execution to help us meet our goals. Thank you for all you have done for us Michael.

Jarrett Atkinson

Vice President , Comfort Products

Michael has been incredibly helpful in guiding me through the daunting task of putting together a strategic business plan. He breaks it all down in a way that brings more clarity and ease to the process than I had ever imagined. I am grateful for his expertise and knowledge.
