About Doug Mead

Doug MeadExemplary Performance Consultant

I am a seasoned Exemplary Performance Consultant/Practitioner dedicated to helping clients design performance solutions that enable average performers to excel. I completed my first front-end analysis over twenty-five years ago and have since completed more than two hundred performance improvement projects. 

I am a husband and a father of two wonderful children and five wonderful stepchildren. I am a training developer, instructor, public speaker and personal business coach/mentor.

I am a nurturing person who seeks joy, peace and meaning in my life. I am free spirited, adventurous and creative. I continue to pass along lessons learned because that gives me joy. What is the point of being here, unless you share it and pass it on, and help others along the way? I try very hard to live an authentic life that feels true to me, which means living my life in service to others.


My purpose is to make a significant positive difference in the lives of others by helping individuals and organizations prosper and achieve their goals. I work side-by-side with clients and lend a hand to create improvement programs designed to strengthen professional well-being, work systems and performance results. 


  • Exceptional Customer Service: I provide first-class customized service to meet or exceed client business needs and expectations.  

  • Leading Edge Expertise: My specialty is in the analysis of human performance and the design of cost-effective interventions that support client business goals and strategies. My primary focus area has been in the energy industry. I am a certified instructor of Joe Harless' ABCD toolset and have certifications in Front-End Analysis, Job Aids Workshop, and Expert OJT, better known as On-the-Job-Training. I am a long standing member of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI, www.ispi.org) and the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD, www.astd.org)

  • Experience you can trust gained from partnerships with numerous clients on hundreds of successful performance improvement projects resulting in millions of dollars of return-on-investment, very satisfied customers, improved operating performance, and improved safety performance.

"The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best."

Harmony in performance means not simply choosing training as a single solution but to ensure you have the right attitude, awareness, motivation, support, and the right relationship between yourself and your people.  An effective Human Performance system addresses the logical, emotional, and physical needs of the organization. 

I expect everyone who participates in coaching services and the workshops that I facilitate to be transformed by the experience. I expect system, process, and individual performance to be transformed as a result of the education experience. 

Together we bridge the gap between where you are and where you need to be to meet your business goals. Together we leverage every action, investment, and opportunity while minimizing effort and risk.
