RockSolid-A Leadership Growth Company

About RockSolid

RockSolid is a leadership growth company developed by Terry Slinde. Our passion at RockSolid is to guide senior level leaders and CEOs to grow as individuals so they can take their companies to the next level.
We use two vehicles to pursue our passion: one-on-one coaching and group coaching (CEODyne). Regardless of the program, the results prove that our clients are better able to perform both personally and professionally because of our coaching.
The process for both the one-on-one coaching and group coaching vary based on the needs of our clients. Our initial step in both processes includes validating what most of our clients already know about themselves. This pivotal point allows our clients to better understand how they can help others because they know more about how to help themselves. More information on the process can be found on “The Approach” page.
