Effective Systems

Increased Performance

Confident Leadership

Great businesses are built with great people.

Too often, business owners lack the time to truly connect with their team. There are just too many problems and too few hours in the day. 

By taking the time to understand how your people make choices, why they think the way they do, and what motivates them to do their best, you can improve retention and culture, ultimately boosting your bottom line.

Tana Plewes Headshot

Hi, I'm Tana Plewes.

I’m a human, like you. 

That’s what I see missing from so much leadership training: the human-ness, the messiness, the not-quite-having-it-all-togetherness. When I work with my clients, I start from a place of how things are in the real world. 

Theoretical knowledge matters, but no amount of training or education will click until you can get comfortable being uncomfortable. 

With proper guidance, vulnerability can be an incredible tool in driving forward and having the tough conversations that drive change. Because we both know that you didn’t sign up to be a glorified babysitter working 14-hour days. 

So how do I help? Systems. Systems are the solution to every business challenge, whether solving a problem, righting an injustice, or creating something new. Since 1996 I have been helping clients unleash their potential with systems-thinking.

Profit is the result of smart systems skillfully executed by ordinary people. Economic development is the result of employers and employees working together to build healthy, profitable businesses.

My insecurities used to come up when I talked to the boss and I'd get defensive. Now I can listen objectively without getting elevated. Communication and gaining more clarity has been helpful for the team. Working with DCE made a night and day difference for everyone.
