In order to be successful in today's market, your internal culture must mirror that of your customers, partners, vendors, and stakeholders. But how do you connect your values, beliefs, and goals to those you wish to partner with and inspire? Our relational, psychological, operational, and behavioral experts will infuse your entire value chain with tools, processes, and desire to hit targets consistently.


The corporate landscape has changed. In the past, executives were able to obtain knowledge and support from their supervisor. Today, they must often look outside their organization for direction because senior executives frequently lack the time and/or skills to mentor subordinates. With in-depth HR and business management backgrounds, the Kelleher Team has the experience to advise our clients on how to grow and navigate the new corporate landscape. Through personalized consultations, discussions, and hands-on training, our consultants help executives acquire and apply indispensable skills to help them perform better or excel to a new position.


Relational capital is the distinct value created by people in a business relationship. It is where credibility, integrity, and authenticity converge when people work together. While most organizations believe that relationships are the key to their success, their approach is paradoxical as the majority lack specific strategies and relationship training that focus on building and sustaining those critical relationships. Our relational capital services and software bring the human element to sales performance analytics and are built for sales professionals and leaders at all levels. AchieveNEXT relational capital services can be personalized to all employees in a business hierarchy whether you are in sales or another client-facing role, lead or participate in a management team, or focus more on the relational aspects of your profession.

AchieveNEXT approaches career management differently from outplacement firms. While they deal in large volumes, which can be  impersonal and lacking individuality, the Kelleher approach is strategic and market-driven to deliver faster, more effective results and put your career on the best path.

Our coaches and consultants are experienced business executives with deep career counseling experience—and meetings with them are always one-on-one. Outplacement firms typically offer only one or two one-on-one consultations per month, sending clients to group meetings instead. This focus on personalized strategies carries through to networking events in which our uniquely intimate groups provide the opportunity to make higher quality connections. Learn More


Do you know the 100 people who are most important to the success of your business? Do you have visibility into the strength of those critical relationships? Our relationship training solutions provide industry specific, interactive, and actionable approaches for your enterprise sales team—those serving as the boots-on-the-ground face of your business and the flag bearer of your brand. We provide your team with the tools and strategies to prioritize, measure, and advance your most impactful business relationships and unlock potential partnerships using our unique relational capital software.

Pre & Post M&A Services

Given today’s ever-changing business and economic environment, many enterprises seek mergers and acquisitions to accelerate their growth and performance. While these transactions provide extraordinary opportunities to increase shareholder value, they also present significant potential risks for the buyer and the seller. In fact, numerous studies indicate that as many as 90 percent of transactions fail to achieve pre-merger expectations.

In order to mitigate the risk of a failed transaction and to maximize the probability of its success, it is critical that the buyer and the seller understand the strength of their greatest asset — the strength of their customer and employee relationships. However, most transaction teams fail to consider:

  • Measuring and tracking the actual strength of customer relationships
  • Understanding the alignment between employee experience (culture) and customer experience
  • Identifying the risks of relationship deterioration during post-merger integration

Our Relational Capital professionals assist clients through the pre and post-close phases of their Merger & Acquisition activities by helping them measure, analyze and drive the value of their greatest assets — their relationships.


We teach management teams how to use executive mentoring techniques to enhance productivity, retention, teamwork, and business results. Develop team effectiveness, build relationships, align goals, and improve work processes throughout your leadership team. The experience and expertise of our Kelleher and Relational Capital teams ensure accurate diagnosis of issues, design of effective organizational change strategies, and to identify individuals in the company who have the potential to develop into great leaders.
