Your challenges... shared expertise
... your success.

  Maxie V. Carpenter

An accomplished public speaker, Maxie is an authority on the subject of corporate culture. His broad range of experience extends to corporate benefits, profit sharing, governmental affairs, public relations, diversity, strategic planning, policy and procedure, and litigation as a subject matter expert.


Maxie specializes in values-based working relationships. Specifically, his expertise lies in assisting the management structure to integrate the values-based interpersonal skills that drive the success of the three working relationships (among members of a work unit, between the work unit leader and its members and between work units) that determines the financial success of the organization. In doing so, he implements a measuring system to quantify interpersonal performance as organizational leaders do to quantify the technical parameters of their business. Organizational research is a second specialty.
