Testimonials

Our organization has worked with Terry in “Strategic Planning” with our Leadership Team. With Terry’s assistance, we have identified our business focus and competitive anchor in addition to targeting the unique planks and specific actions that will allow our organization to reach it’s goals. In my opinion, Terry is one of the best in his field in aligning the team to achieve the greater goals of the organization. The process that he employs not only ensured that our team was unified, but additionally, the culture was ready for change and there were appropriate management systems and tools in place to support reaching the goals we set.
Kurt Hellweg, CEO, American Dehydrated Foods, Inc.
As President and CEO of Berlin Industries, Inc., Terry was my coach. Not only has Terry been a most trusted advisor for both my personal and professional life but a true friend. His uncanny ability to identify issues and work together with any team for a solution is just a small part of what he brings to a business. Regardless of how challenged or successful one’s business is, there is always something to be gained from Terry. I marvel at the expertise and intensity/passion he can bring to your business issues. It seems I find myself quoting him every week! It is a sincere pleasure to work with Terry.
Tina Tromiczak, Pfingsten Partners, LLC
I would like to highly recommend Terry Trayvick as an Executive Coach.

Terry has an excellent approach in first understanding what frames ones personal and leadership style and what factors form the basis for your success, as well as the watch outs that come with your approach. He is adept at reading situations and understanding the dynamics and gaps of your leadership style, as well as the effectiveness of your entire team in this context.

Terry is unique in the world of executive coaching, in that he comes with a stellar business background and is able to understand the challenges of running a large business. He is armed with a lot of common sense and has a wealth of experience in the field to provide real life solutions.

Terry’s ability to listen, communicate and quickly develop affinity and trust with his clients makes him a standout amongst his peers. I can unequivocally state that time spent with Terry is one of the best investments of my career.

Who is Level FIVE

To be the best at helping good organizations become great.

Strategy – Execution – Funding

We encourage and support our clients to be intentional about becoming great. Being intentional includes having a great aspiration supported by a bullet proof plan, experienced management support to help drive execution, and the ability to garner funding to support growth. At Level Five we help across all three major dimensions necessary for greatness – a strategy, the ability to execute, and the ability to get funding.

Strategy – Execution – Funding

We help you plan and deliver the results you desire. Many consultants help clients develop a plan that no one believes in and it never gets implemented. At Level Five, we are committed to helping you develop a robust plan and providing you with world class management techniques and processes, and access to funding to meet your growth aspirations.

Strategy – Execution – Funding

The Level Five team has consistently delivered over the years as evidenced by our long-term relationships with our clients. As an example, we’ve helped one of our clients put a strategy in place, build the management team, and acquire the necessary funding to average 80% annual growth over the past five years.
