Harpeth Consultant Advisory Group was founded in June of 2018 in the beautiful Harpeth River Valley of Middle Tennessee, spanning 870 square miles. HarpConAG specializes in helping organizations reach their goals in the areas of Organizational Development and Leadership, Strategic Growth, and Compliance. HarpConAG works with experts in the field bringing you a well-respected knowledge base that can be applied to any setting. Focusing in the areas of healthcare, long term care, senior services, community based care, and hospitality, our goal is to provide sophisticated results through common sense approach.
We understand that sometimes boiling things down to the simplest and easiest way to understand them is quite beneficial to the client. Have you met with that consultant that is using words and terms that you’ve never heard of, but you nod in agreement because you don’t want to come across as uninformed? This is the common sense approach that HarpConAG utilizes. We do not need to speak in high-level terms (sometimes we do – but we promise it is not the norm) to make ourselves sound better than we are. Our work speaks for itself. Our goal is to speak in terms that are relatable, understandable, actionable and thought provoking. The goal is for our client to feel as though we have clear and reliable communication and everyone knows where they stand. This will allow us at HarpConAG to deliver sophisticated results.
