Reaching the pinnacle requires work. You need determination. You need to plan, to train, and to source the expertise and tools to make a successful climb. So linking that process to the journey of reaching the pinnacle of business success makes great sense to me. - Master Coach Michelle Landis
Master Business Coach
Welcome to Pinnacle 7! I’m so happy you’re here. My goal was to design a website packed with value-added business tools, ideas and learnings that can help you grow your business. As a business coach, I use a unique blend of coaching and consulting to help business owners achieve a higher level of performance for both themselves and their business. It’s a very direct approach that provides my clients with insights into what is coming next, laser-sharp focus and the opportunity to practice, make mistakes and learn in a safe and supportive environment.

Our speciality is working with businesses and leaders that want to do extraordinary things. We get it because the sights we set for ourselves are just as high. And for the last 10 years, we have had the privilege of partnering with teams and businesses that have seen their greatest goals realized.
Our approach is a unique blend of coaching and consulting. We work directly with business owners to help them achieve a higher level performance for both themselves and their business. This involves facilitating development and learning, coupled with challenging plans that require accountability and get results.
Although many times when we get started the focus is on just one small aspect of a larger problem, strong results are achieved in many areas of the business because we tackle many small problems and consistently move them forward. This direct approach provides insights into what is coming next, provides focus and provides the opportunity to practice, make mistakes and learn.
Coaching requires a strong commitment from each of the clients we take through our process. We work hard to keep you on track and committed to your business goals. If you are willing to commit the time and energy needed to make positive and lasting change – we stand ready to help.
Mountains also have a metaphorical majesty. They symbolize setting a goal, and achieving the ascent. Every continent has its highest mountain…the fabled “Seven Summits.” Each peak poses a different challenge to climbers looking to make a successful climb. Few climbers have attempted to scale the Seven Summits. Even fewer have succeeded. Master Coach Michelle Landis, founder of Pinnacle 7, appreciates the similarities between achieving business success and climbing a mountain. Both processes require a powerful desire and the resources needed to complete the mission.
During a stellar corporate career, Master Coach Michelle Landis has visited and done business on six continents – with Antarctica still on her bucket list. And although Michelle understands that not all businesses have international aspirations, she believes all businesses can learn from the global economy. That’s how Pinnacle 7 was born. The company’s vision is to leverage the power and expertise of some of the brightest business minds in the U.S. to help dozens of companies make the symbolic climb to the top of their industries and reach peak performance.
"In less then a year, Michelle has helped us turn the entire business around. She helped us revise our quoting process with a focus on price management and project profitability, focused us on building a higher performing executive management team, collaboratively negotiated union concessions, and most importantly improved our gross profit margin by over 15%."
"Michelle is an excellent motivator and leader. While working with Michelle, I have had the pleasure to experience her leadership in helping me to drive my team to new heights."
"I have worked with Michelle since her early days as a business coach. I have repeatedly seen her ability to help move businesses to the next level. Her rich background from teaching to running a business for Jack Welch of GE, provide skillsets and tools that can’t be duplicated by others."
"If anyone asked me where to find a business coach, I’d recommend Michelle in a flash. If anyone asked why one needs a business coach, I could tell them in a few simple terms: Direction, Focus, Profits."
"Coaching for me has been a life changing experience because I am being held accountable for my actions and for the growth and results of my business."
"Before meeting Michelle my business was floundering, nearly destroyed the year prior. With her guidance, suggestions and hard work, I was able to restore the business to its original profitability and stability."
