About the Author

Jaime Taets

author bioAs a CEO, public speaker, author, podcast host, and thought leader… through every one of those roles, Jaime Taets is focused on helping individuals and companies get past whatever is holding them back from achieving what they are capable of.

Jaime’s experience began in a corporate role at the largest privately-held corporation in the world. Thirteen years into that journey, she was comfortably uncomfortable. Having held various leadership roles, Jaime recognized that her strengths and approach would be better utilized outside the corporate world. Stepping out confidently while facing her own fears, she left that job and launched Keystone Group International in 2013.

Keystone Group International focuses on leadership development, organizational strategy, growth, and change. Jaime’s belief that strong leadership and a change-resilient culture are the foundation for sustainable growth drives her work with clients. Harnessing her own leadership experiences, she inspires real and sometimes challenging discussions about the crossroads between high-performance and healthy change.

Her approach is a combination of direct and caring. Not one to step around challenges, she helps leaders focus on their root challenges. As she puts it, “Stop mowing the dandelions.” Jaime pushes her clients to dig deep, she calls out issues in their businesses, and never lets them off the hook. Creating “a-ha” moments fuels her – those instances where they see the change they need to make and understand the potential of creating those shifts.

Culture is a mountain effective leaders must climb.

The truth about Culture is that it is hard to build and hard to sustain. You are never done improving and evolving your culture. But once you have a solid foundation built, the incremental sustainment work becomes much easier.

The Impact Model

We created “The Impact Model” with the purpose of simplifying culture into a set of building blocks that every business leader can understand and can take action on.


Because while there are aspects of culture that are harder to measure, choosing that as our excuse to not focus on it is not enough. The future growth of our organizations is built on a solid culture foundation.
