The Construction Doctor - Business Consultant - Logo Full Color

It all started in 2003…

After a 20-year career as a therapist, I took the leap and traveled to Salt Lake City to earn my certification with Franklin Covey. I like to say that I had a metamorphosis from working with people’s problems to tackling their possibilities!

While being accountable to my own coach, I launched my business as a life coach and quickly found a calling in leadership and executive consulting. I’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of individuals and small businesses serious about undertaking a complete transformation.

Since 2003 I’ve found my speciality in construction. Businesses that offer painting services, repair roofs, build outdoor living spaces, or hoist fences have a special place in their communities.

When small businesses thrive, so do their owners, families, and neighbors!

Excited to work with you,

Richard “Doc” Eley, Ph.D.

“Prior to coaching I had goals & a vision that I wanted to accomplish, but they were not as clearly defined as I wished.

One of the greatest assets of being coached by Dr. Eley is the fact that I am held accountable for achieving my goals and vision.

Having my own personal coach has really helped me achieve things I thought were near impossible to achieve. Doc helps me navigate through obstacles and illuminates the pathway to success. 

My life is more balanced and thanks to my coach, I am eagerly attacking my goals & vision both personally and professionally.”
