Patterned Behavior/Time Consulting

Your Organization's Success Begins Here



Processes That Take Your Organization to the Next Level

It takes a great deal of effort to create and lead a high-performance organization. It isn’t as simple as watching a YouTube video. Creating a high-performance organization means nurturing a culture where patterned high-performance behavior comes natural to your employees. That means defining an expected behavior and then teaching your organization to pattern that behavior over a long period of time. Eventually, the patterned behavior becomes the norm.  That is what PB/T Consulting will do for your organization.

Organizational Assessment

Is your organization struggling with gaps between current performance expectations and the much preferred high-performance?


Understanding the perceptions of organizational leadership, operational personnel, and customers is critical to address root issues associated with those perceptions.  Our team will examine all aspects of your organization and provide you with insightful information to move towards becoming high performing, current, and to create a clear path toward future success.


Have you spent much needed effort and resources on developing a plan only to find it years later gathering dust on a shelf in the CEO’s office or conference room?


Utilizing the data obtained from the organizational assessment, our team will use a three-phased approach to help you translate your goals to results through a just-now, thoughtful and streamlined focused planning process. 


Phase One: Focus to bring alignment of perception speak and assumptions to data driven reality. 


Phase Two: Design to create clearly articulated and measurable outcome strategies. 


Phase Three: Adapt to be able to recognize unanticipated opportunities and challenges as they arise and incorporate them into your overall plan.


The results of your efforts will provide your organization with short and mid-range strategies and guidance to operationalize employee efforts to achieve the plan’s vision through a Work Plan Accountability Tool. 

Leadership Development

Do all levels within your organization “own” the departmental goals and strategies? 

Good strategies can still lead to poor outcomes without effective leadership.  Using the information and tools provided in Creating and Leading High-Performance Organizations by Cecil V. “Buddy” Martinette Jr., our team will set your organization up for long-term success by customizing leadership training by organizational level. 

If you are ready to discover the tools and processes that create a patterned behavior of high-performance, then you are ready for a relationship with PB/T Consulting.

“It’s a pleasure to work with someone who can supplement my own skills to make the organization more complete and better directed."  
Buddy Martinette is one of the best strategic thinkers with whom I have ever worked.  His mind is simply wired that way.  It was a marvel to watch him work through situations in a way that brought him to a systematic solution that considered a myriad of variables only to tie a individual work plan, through multiple steps, to the strategic directives of the organization.  There are very few folks who can immediately visualize and identify those connections.
