About Transformational Impact LLC
Transformational Impact LLC helps companies improve their employee cultures to make the companies healthier, more productive, and more profitable. We help you build a vision to achieve societal impact, strengthen your employee and customer loyalties, and reach your business goals. By creating a values-based infrastructure, we help you better serve your customers, your employees, and your community.

Our Values
  • PASSION: We believe strongly in what we do and it shows.

  • CELEBRATION: Life is worth living and celebrating.
Our Principles
  • EXCELLENCE: Whatever you do is always worth doing well.
  • INTENTIONALITY: All thoughts and actions have consequences.
  • DIGNITY: Every individual has intrinsic self-worth.
Our Vision

According to a 2017 Gallup research study, one-third of all U.S. workers are engaged in their jobs. Half are not engaged at their jobs. And one in six is actively disengaged, biting the hand that feeds them.

 

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

 

You can engage your employees in something bigger than getting a paycheck. You can use your company to serve your customers and community—and make more money in the process. You can do good and do well at the same time.

 

You can use your company to serve more than just your customers. You can remake your business into an agent of transformation.
