What is Compass Consulting?

The function of the compass is one of God’s beautifully-engineered and unexplainable phenomena. Regardless of the way we hold it, shake it or turn it, the needle always points North. Without exception, the needle points the way, heading us in the right direction every single time. However, if we as keepers of the compass ignore its instruction, the Northern-pointing needle has no purpose and we are destined to continue without guidance and the possibility of failure is almost assured.

The image of the compass is the foundation of Compass Consulting. With over 25 years of experience in the areas of real estate, small business, trade associations, professional development and communications, Kathy Whitfield has developed immense knowledge, practical application, training, instruction and speaking opportunities. An adult classroom instructor since 2006 and a day-to-day consultant in various areas of small business, ethics, leadership and communications since 2009, the concept of Compass Consulting was formed on the fundamentals of practical application while helping people build a career that gives them a life.
