My name is Pete and I am the President and Founder of ActionsProve, LLC

After more than two decades as a successful and accomplished professional civil engineer, consultant, executive, and firm owner, and many years alongside designing and implementing a variety of service, education, and enterprise programs, I am focused on helping high-achieving professionals and business owners win at both work and life, and create greater growth, profits, and impact through their organizations.

Why ActionsProve?

Because times have changed, both for individuals and for organizations.  We need a new plan and a new strategy to accomplish all that we want:

  • We want to excel and to win – but not at all costs,
  • We want to have impact and make a difference both inside and outside the office,
  • We want more control over the direction of our future,
  • We want to trust that our actions are aligned with our ultimate goals, and
  • We want to take action to succeed in the new era in which we live and the evolving marketplace in which we must compete.

Whether you are looking to enhance your current operations, refresh, or pivot in a new direction, our goal is to position you to succeed.


We help you succeed through:

Strategic Planning | Private Coaching

Employee Engagement | Corporate Social Impact

We routinely share about elements related to our practice in our Popular Blog Series and have been featured on several Podcasts and Radio Shows.

For those of us whose success to date has resulted in an extended period of 1- or 2-dimensional living and want more out of life… and for those of us who want to create great organizations to thrive in the new era we ‘re in, we wrote ‘Reversing Burnout.  How to Immediately Engage Top Talent and Grow!  A Blueprint for Professionals and Business Owners’

We speak, consult, coach, and train on a range of topics related to professional and organizational success; employee attraction and retention; and designing and implementing effective corporate social impact as an in-demand business growth strategy.

We look forward to an opportunity to speak with you about how ActionsProve can help you win today.  Please Contact Us here.

To your winning,
