Back in 2002 when I started Calahan Solutions, Inc. I established a set of values that we would live and work by.
Ethical behavior, honesty, and integrity are fundamental characteristics of our conduct in all aspects of our work. Good citizenship is good business. We live up to our responsibility to society by being an economic, intellectual and social asset to each community in which we do business and it is critical to developing customer and stakeholder loyalty.
Excellence in Service
It is not about us — it is about our clients. It’s about our clients’ clients! Our clients are in the service industry too. The better we help them, the more impact we can contribute to the world. Our service should be prompt and proactive to provide convenience with a personal touch and with heart. We all have the responsibility to deliver quality and innovation in our work through personal initiative and continuous development of skills and knowledge, with strong support from the organization. Clients enjoy working with us because we are authentic; we work with integrity; we are practitioners of what we teach; we offer humor, empathy, and compassion, and we teach the art and rhythm of being purpose-driven.
When you live and work in a way that honors your purpose and your preferred lifestyle you have more control of your daily activities. You have less stress — which, in turn, creates an overall sense of serenity and well-being. When you combine strategic visibility strategies, your message reaches more people, faster.
Leveraging the talents of our diverse workforce helps us add value for ourselves, our clients, our shareholders, and our communities. We believe that diversity of background, thought, communication styles, backgrounds, and experiences leads to more innovative, longer-lasting solutions. When you hire Calahan Solutions, Inc., you are hiring an advocate for you. We do not impose ideas; we discover solutions that work for each specific circumstance.
To that end, our service model is also diverse. We provide personalized professional coaching, mentoring, consulting and hands-on implementation services that can help you claim your spot and get your message out. You can have us involved as much or as little as you like: from telephone consultations, to a general needs assessment, to hands-on assistance. Our services range from instructional consulting (we will recommend strategies that you put in place) to teaming with you to fully implement an individually tailored plan (we will be with you from beginning to end.)
Because we fully respect that everyone’s needs are different, as we work with private clients we take proven strategies and customize them for each situation.
Creating harmony and proportion in our lives with God, family and our career. We understand and respect that when any important aspect of our lives is out of balance the other aspects of our lives do not function appropriately.
Corporate Social Responsibility and Community
Being a socially responsible firm is a key objective of Calahan Solutions, Inc. Bottom line, we want to help people. Our business is built on relationships — with our clients, consultants, and communities. So, naturally, we have a special interest in helping people in the communities we serve — especially those who are financially disadvantaged. We believe that our corporate social responsibility should be about addressing issues directly. Our executive leadership team and consultants demonstrate their commitment to providing thought leadership on the latest trends and issues by serving on various boards. We partner with many organizations by offering our subject matter expertise pro-bono to help provide services they may not otherwise be able to afford.
Teamwork allows each person to be valued an appreciated by others and leverages our individual talents to serve our clients and each other exceptionally well. “Win-win” relationships are our goal as we work with clients, other employees, business partners, and service providers.
Our extensive resource database will ensure your needs are met. It may seem odd, but we don’t believe in competition. If another service provider is the right choice for our clients, we will partner to make the right solution come together. Our resource partners stretch into professional areas of accounting, finance, graphic design, ghost writing, copy writing, personal block clearing, technology, etc.
We believe that financial responsibility and growth are the means to make all of our other values and objectives possible. Making a profit is everyone’s responsibility and the balance of long-term and short-term objectives is key to profitability, which enables the achievement of our vision.
