About SKH Consulting

SKH is in the business of helping people and organizations reach their full potential.

We see consulting as a partnership that begins with listening to acquire a thorough understanding of your goals and objectives. From there, we work with you in close collaboration from beginning to end, applying our tools and years of experience to exceed your expectations.

HR Services for Organizations

Our services range from candidate assessments and hiring consultation, to organizational effectiveness and executive development. We believe self-awareness and working from unique strengths leads to great results and we are passionate about helping people find paths for developing their strengths and overcoming barriers to success.

Coaching Services for Individuals
Whether you’re seeking a promotion at your current job or you need help transitioning to an entirely new career, SKH has the experience and insight to prepare you for success.  We take the time to listen to your ambitions and dreams as well as your questions and concerns. We’ll help you make a plan to acquire the skills and information you need and then coach you on how to differentiate yourself from your competition during the interview process and on social media.
