Over the years, I have had the good fortune of participating in many time management training opportunities and have gleaned a gem or two from all. For me, the Work Smarter, Not Harder program was a markedly different experience than past training sessions. The tools I learned from this program produced many, many positive results in my work day. I am on top of my priorities, effectively planning projects, and working on tasks well before they are due. I am able to look toward the future needs of my department, and proactively plan next steps in a way I have never achieved before. This program will benefit anyone who wants to work smarter!
Cathi’s foresight in creating a tool that helps organizations retain more of its members is a natural progression in her consulting specialty because we all know recruiting new members... costs far more than keeping the ones we already have.
Debra Benton, author How To Think Like a CEO (Warner Books)
In this day and age of meeting customer needs, a generic membership approach no longer works. A New Approach to Tired Membership provides the basis to analyzing and developing a successful plan for creating a custom approach that delivers value and meets individual customer’s needs. Highly recommended.

Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce
Cathi Hight knows chambers, understands members, and her tiered system is the special sauce for turning your membership sales from a business transaction into a meaningful relationship based on a blending of mutual interests.
John Tayer, President and CEO
Cathi distills the complexities of operating membership organizations into something that is understandable and applicable. She is incredibly knowledgeable of best practices, her frameworks are spot-on, but she is always welcoming to new ideas and approaches. Her hallmark is how graciously she shares her knowledge, experience and wisdom. A conversation with Cathi always leads to an improvement in whatever I am working on.
Jonathan Packard, Senior VP of Customer Experience
Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce
Cathi Hight and Hight Performance Group confront the issue of member retention head-on with a proactive approach. Their Member Retention Kit helps Chamber executives like myself identify the ideal and the ‘at-risk’ member, develop migration strategies and compile and analyze reports that will assist with managing retention.
