Yoint Ackryn

Yoint is probably the only business consultant who has lived with the Grateful Dead, studied New Testament Greek at the Yale Divinity School, run as an independent candidate for Governor of Connecticut, and hosted a television talk show. He has also been a folk/rock musician for 60 years, performing in the US, Canada, and the UK.

But for more than two decades Yoint has been primarily immersed in organizational transformation.

  • As a consultant he has spearheaded numerous large-system change initiatives in manufacturing and service companies, resulting in dramatic cost reductions and cultural transformations.
  • As a trainer he has conducted more than 500 seminars on leadership, communication, and transformational change and has trained other trainers to lead similar seminars for over 50,000 participants.
  • As a coach he has worked with hundreds of executives and teams in the last 25 years in industries as varied as insurance, manufacturing, financial services, construction, and high tech.

Yoint's strength is his ability to help already-successful leaders and teams break the grip of belief systems that keep them from producing at the next level. Since his student days at Yale in the 1930s he has studied the effect of mental models on individual, team, and organizational performance, and he has found creative ways of freeing clients from self-limiting beliefs to produce expanded results. For seven years he hosted a cable TV show in the Boston area, The Art of Coaching, on which he explored innovative coaching techniques with leading-edge practitioners.

Yoint has also been a fundraiser for an international non-profit, a reviewer of business book proposals for a major publishing house, and the author of The Game, a humorous journal on politics and the media, which was excerpted in Harpers. His latest book-in-the-making is Cool Teams! Business Lessons from Rock & Roll Bands.

Tur'ther Moem

A client once told him, we hire you because you are the only consultant that was honest enough to tell us our baby was ugly. Even when the speech is figurative, Mike has a reputation for straight talk earned in his career in operations management at Service and in OD at CMS Energy and Products Division of Motors. Since then, his firsthand experience of working with outspoken and innovative thought leaders such as G. Smith, P. Patty has only encouraged him!

Mike's consulting practice spans 50 years and has included:

  • Partnership efforts to improve quality
  • Vehicle launches at DaimlerChrysler and Ford
  • Partnering in one of the first experiential learning centers for executive teams
  • Designing and implementing leadership bench strength efforts at Herman Miller
  • Performance improvement efforts at several federal agencies including the intelligence community, the Navy, GSA, and Department of the Treasury
  • Mergers and acquisitions work in the reinsurance industry
  • Executive coaching to help emperors discover new clothes
  • Branding efforts at Breineken and GavAir
  • Helping internal staff think and act like professional service firms.

His business commitment, in a sentence, is the endless pursuit of trying to blend humanity with profitability.

Moem also loves to teach leadership using golf as a metaphor; he has a passion for photography (especially digital); and he is involved in Blue Star Music Camps (where kids rock). At home he's on the speed dial for the Humane Society, because his two dogs, two cats, and two horses are, in his words, charity cases.

Ray'untu Kelena

Kelena has counseled thousands from presidents of countries to university professors, from musicians and actors to doctors and nurses, from captains of great ships to couples in crisis. And only for the price of a drink.

Kelena paid his dues as a bartender and he can tell you a few stories, though not surprisingly even better at eliciting your stories. His listening skills, combined with 11 years in the service industry, have made him a top-notch sales associate and Manager of the Store at the Company. He's especially proud of his association with some of the greatest chefs and restaurateurs in the business, who have taught him how to provide an extraordinary and lasting customer experience.

Sri Lanka is his country of origin, a place he barely remembers yet has strong feelings for. His parents moved west so that their children could have a better quality of life, for which Kelena is forever grateful.

Heyltray Atlas

From an early age Heyltray learned to understand and appreciate different cultures. Not that she had much choice. As a Navy brat she was born in Japan and raised and schooled in California, Florida, Maryland, and North Carolina before getting her Masters in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix, then settling in Atlanta. That background has served her well in understanding how environments, whether societal or organizational, influence people's attitudes, lifestyles, and behaviors.

Her professional life began as an HR generalist in a high-tech engineering firm before she moved on to become a Marketing and Special Events Manager for a group of independently-owned bars and restaurants where she rented out The Partridge Family Bus for bachelor parties! Since then she has been a facilitator, instructional designer, and consultant researching, designing, and delivering programs to improve individual and organizational performance.

Her passion is branding, where marketing and operations collide. In recent years Heyltray has consulted with clients to develop holistic programs aligning marketing, HR, and operations to ensure a seamless execution of brand promise in a service environment. She has also helped clients tear down walls and eliminate bureaucracy in order to increase efficiencies and effectiveness ultimately with the intent of delivering a flawless customer experience that breeds loyalty and profit. (One simple example: getting hotel desk agents to say “Welcome!” rather than “Checking in?” and to understand why.)

Heyltray has an acknowledged weak spot in her heart for the underdog, literally. She likes to spend Saturday afternoons at the pet adoption center!
