From ‘Startup’ to ‘Growth’, and through to ‘Succession Planning and Retirement’, my consulting services will save you time and money, make you more of it, and get you where you want to be considerably faster than if you go it alone!
The ‘typical’ consultant model is to come in, identify your challenges, interview your people, and leave you with some strategies and steps to take towards achieving your goals-information. While often valuable and wise, this information alone, without implementation is worthless.
My consulting approach goes farther. I bring a coaching background to consulting. What does that mean? In addition to providing you with proven strategies and approaches, you will get the guidance, support, and be held accountable to implement these strategies and realize your goals. Having worked with professional service providers including accountants and lawyers from solo shops right up to national firms, I have a diverse set of skills and experience to pass on to you.
Consulting will support your vision and strategy– ‘The Plan’; while Coaching will support ‘The Implementation’. Together, they are your winning formula for success. That is what you get with OnTrac®

Gary is an invaluable help to anyone thinking of starting their own law practice. The one time I did not follow Gary’s advise, I ended up wasting thousands of dollars unnecessarily. Invest in Gary and you will always be thankful for his thoughtful tips!

As we approach our 6th year anniversary in business, I have to say we’ve done well. I engaged Gary to help us take it up a notch to Great. He is advising me on industry standards for compensation, structure, and workflow. He is also helping my firm to adopt a culture of client 1st approaches and business development.

If you’re reading this testimonial, you probably don’t know Gary Mitchell the way I know him. About five years ago, I stumbled across his book on rainmaking online and decided to read it. I was most impressed. That then led me to reach out to him and discuss the role that he could play in my law firm. I then hired Gary to coach various staff members who went on to become exceptionally productive, increased our firm revenues and, most importantly, dramatically improved their happiness quotient at work. I have since consulted with Gary on many occasions and will continue to do so. For small to medium size firms who cannot afford to have an in-house productivity specialist on payroll, Gary is your man.
