Leadership Investment for Tomorrow

GPS Dairy Consulting, LLC in partnership with The Heartwood Group introduced our first LIFT series in 2015 with sessions in February, April, and July. The purpose of the series was to introduce leaders and managers of high-functioning dairies to a coaching mindset of leadership and ultimately begin the process of developing and growing as professional managers. Our goal was to increase the participant's capacity to:

  • Think strategically in their role as a manager.
  • Coach and manage for performance and objectives.
  • Be actively involved in the success of their dairies beyond the day to day activities.
  • Meet and exceed their most challenging goals.
  • Organize and plan work more effectively.

Session one was held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and included a tour and presentation at Diamond V Mills headquarters. Participants learned to focus internally, increasing their level of personal awareness while reflecting on leaders, teachers, and mentors who were influential in their lives. For the second session, the LIFTTM group met in LaCrosse, Wisconsin for two days to focus on action, conversation, and business culture. The final session was held in the Green Bay area and included valuable discussion on strategic planning, holding effective meetings, and building trust to create engagement in the leaders' vision.

Experience Delivering Success®


Experience only brings value when it is shared. The nutritionists that make up GPS Dairy Consulting are proven leaders in their respective areas with vast experience and a solid reputation for delivering quality service and positive results to their clients. At GPS Dairy Consulting we share our experience with each other as colleagues; we share our experience as coaches and mentors for each other; and, we share our experience with our clients, their managers and their employees. Building upon the experiences of all of us we are able to bring the power of the entire GPS Dairy Consulting team to every dairy we work with.



In order to deliver anything you must first take personal ownership. GPS Dairy Consultants don't simply hand off the many challenges that come up on a dairy operation; we get involved. At GPS Dairy Consulting we take ownership and responsibility to deliver results to ourselves, our peers and especially to our customers.




Success must be sustained and built upon. We will not be satisfied by delivering a single success. At GPS Dairy Consulting our consultants create value by delivering results. We capture the momentum of those results to create success and we build upon each individual success to create sustained success.
