Business Administrative Intern- Work directly with our CEOBookmark This
Foreman & Associates, LLC
DescriptionForeman & Associates, LLC is a business management consulting firm in Metro Atlanta, Georgia. Since our start, we have worked with clients from various industries helping with their management, operations, training, and development needs. Foreman & Associates helps an organization to stay aligned, realign, or re-imagine their operations and management strategy.
We strive to help reduce the failure rate of small businesses through our work, and by partnering with other organizations nationwide and globally to offer consulting, training, workshops/seminars and other services in a collaborative effort to help guide and mentor entrepreneurs to success. We are also focused on educating professionals and organizations to think beyond merely starting a company or building a brand, but to instead focus on creating longevity and nurturing a long-lasting legacy.
Foreman & Associates is built upon a leadership model that can be described as a healthy blend of Servant Leadership and Transformational Leadership. We lead by example, and we lead by helping others. Our leadership team will always ask, "What can I do to help you?" and then they work to empower all team members to do their part to achieve goals, complete projects, and satisfy clients.
We believe in a commitment to excellence through efficiency, effectiveness, and efficacy. We believe that business is more than just transactions, profits and losses, reports, and meetings---business is about people. Business is about building relationships, hopefully long-lasting ones, with people not titles or account numbers. We approach each employee and consultant as a team member. We approach each client where they are and where they want to be. We don't believe in cookie-cutter prices or processes, so our client's experience with us will be unique.
