Hilary Anderson, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, often signs her emails with this quote: “It’s not the will to win that matters – everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.” (Bear Bryant) We all know what happens when an athlete is supported by an amazing coach on the field but what happens when we take that kind of positive influence and bring it to the business world?
As a collegiate athlete and the Head Coach of the State Champion Shaker Heights High School Field Hockey team, Hilary knows a few things about coaching.
Hilary has spent the last 16 years coaching businesses to realize their full potential. Hilary’s passion lies in the collaborative effort to discover, uncover, learn and grow with owners resulting in business and non-profit achievements. Hilary’s track record of accomplishments with local businesses includes a wide variety of experience from the back end of organizations (financials, policies, goals and objectives) to the front end (hiring, training and evaluating staff). Hilary brings with her a sheer desire to work together, as a team, to find the right equations to create the best possible outcomes. Most reflective of Hilary are the words from this quote in the business world, “The best coaches really care about people. They have a sincere interest in people.” (Byron and Catherine Pulsifer)

"As an executive director of a non-profit for 8 years, I often feel as though I have bit off more than I can chew. I’m so proud of myself in many ways but then there are certain areas that actually make my stomach hurt trying to disseminate, decipher and simplify. In short, we have created an umbrella organization that has “sub organizations” and our bookkeeping was a mess. The first result in hiring Shaker Consulting was a HUGE sigh of relief. When I met with Hilary, she made me feel as though every problem I was confronted with was solvable and workable. I had worked with other consultants in the past that left me feeling miserable and embarrassed but Hilary made everything feel EASY and conquerable! Mostly, Hilary made me feel as though I wasn’t alone and she would be there every step of the way. Her passion to help me to create a new system was obvious and her friendly and approachable style made our meetings fun – imagine that! Our organization is well on the way to having clear and concise books with a new and simple plan for moving forward. I recommend Shaker Consulting to any business or organization that seeks better systems for growth."
