A Winning Season

At Pinnacle Group, calling our team a group of Philadelphia Eagle’s fans would be the understatement of the year. We live and breathe Eagles football, and during the season it consumes many of our lunch conversations. We have had many disappointing seasons that led to analyzing and over-analyzing what wasn’t working, often coming up empty-handed.… Read more

Putting an End to the Chaos

Being a True Professional

David Maister, author of True Professionalism said, “Professional is not a label you give yourself – it’s a description you hope others will apply to you.” For many of us this statement challenges what we believe and what we have been taught about the idea of being a “professional.” We have heard over and over… Read more

Graduations, Father’s Day, pool parties, beach bumming, Independence Day to name a few. For some of us, our work schedules allow for a little more flexibility and ease.
