While many coaching and consulting organizations offer value, there was always something missing for him. Andrew founded Block Performance Solutions on three principles:

1) Make It Personal & Flexible – Everybody’s situation is different. Leverage theory and best practices, but make it personally connect to every individual’s learning styles and goals.

2) Make It Real – All coaching and consulting should be directly relative and applicable to your day-to-day and long-term strategic objectives.

3) Make It Impactful – Build a long-term relationship and understand your goals and aspirations. BPS is not just an “outside expert,” but a true thought partner who is committed to your success.
