In my role as Director of Business and Industry Services for Ozark Guidance, I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with my colleague, Steve Seward
The experience and energy Steve brought to our business programs by helping to integrate our Employee Assistance Program with our clinical programs was invaluable. He provided effective training to our clinical staff, streamlined our Employee Assistance Program policies and procedures to interface with various programs within our organization, and provided thoughtful consultation to the various business organizations that we served.
Steve was personally encouraging and insightful in dealing with the various layers of organizational strata. Steve is a very competent counselor and coach. He is also shown himself to be a solid systems thinker and is well versed in the world of organizational dynamics.
I feel confident in endorsing Steve Seward as a valuable member of any working team and as an experienced therapist within the corporate environment.

Kim and Tony at The Barnabas Team have a style that allows you to quickly connect and get down to business. They are skilled at helping you develop a vision that others can get behind. I appreciate their help in identifying the competencies needed to build a successful organization which will help provide me with a long history of success.
Vice President, Fortune 50 Company
Kim really understands how to maximize organizational structure, to both leverage talent and deal with performance issues. Specifically, Kim helped me create a talent rotation plan that resulted in development opportunities for several of my top managers which resulted in the resolution of long term performance issues. Not only did Kim help me solve problems, she helped me learn why the approach worked, so that I was able to apply what I learned in other areas of my business.
