Why Cypress?


We are a boutique collaborative consulting and coaching firm that helps organizations and their people strengthen, sustain and soar. We have developed a unique approach based on leading edge business research, and neuroscience principles, to co-create systems within your organization that yield exceptional, sustainable results.

Our team is passionate about bringing your ideas to life. Founder Shelley McQuade believes you can have a prosperous business filled with valuable partners — customers, employees, and suppliers — while doing work you love and are good at. Our collaborative approach combines our solutions and tools with your strengths and knowledge. Together we will engage people to invest and create sustainable, high value relationships that drive performance and profit.

It is important to us that your organization and our firm work together toward your goals. Great communication and a shared vision make a perfect match. If you meet the following criteria chances are we’re the perfect fit:

1. You are what we refer to as a “preneur”.

  • An entrepreneur: You own a small to medium sized business.
  • A socialpreneur: You provide a not-for-profit service to improve society.
  • An intrepreneur: You are a leader or manager of a team within an enterprise.

2. As different as the above may seem, there are certain commonalities you share. If you can answer a yes to one or more of the following I do believe we have a match.

  • You want/need to take your organization to the next level and know what you’re currently doing isn’t going to get you there.
  • You recognize the need to develop a better system that is customized to your organization versus a one size fits all solution.
  • Simplicity appeals to you. You want implementable ideas rather than reports or binders of information or data.
  • You value collaboration and want to build a sustainable ecosystem that withstands the test of time.
  • You are passionate (or were once passionate and want to get it back) about what you do and strive to make a positive difference.

Let’s talk.
