Brilliance Extraction

Extract Your Brilliance

Your brilliance is all the knowledge that you carry in your head. Chances are without it your company would have a hard time operating. That's flattering but also limiting.  Do more of what you love and are great at, and less of what has become a boring routine.

Make Your Expertise Digital

Are you used to meeting people in person as your primary way to conduct business? Those who cannot share their expertise and offerings online are increasingly outcompeted by those who can. Work with us to develop courses for your customers, prospects, and team members.

Amplify Your Leadership

Our academy offers business and leadership courses, workshops, and coaching for subject matter experts who are leaders.

As a "recovering Ph.D. chemist" our founder Dr. Stephie Althouse is familiar with the dilemma of being a subject matter expert and learning other skills when taking on business and leadership responsibilities. This is why she created these options for you to amplify your leadership and business skills:

  • Do It Yourself (DIY)
  • DIY with Top-Notch CEO Coach support

Frequently Asked Questions

What Others Are Saying

The Brilliance Extraction system is unique. It taps into the organization’s innate wisdom and utilizes it in ways I have never seen before. It collects many years of experience and makes it usable and transferrable. Training and collaborative learning become so much more effective. The possibilities from that are stunning.

One of the things I love is that Stephie has the unusual ability to convert complex information into much simpler explanations and graphics that readily drive the point home to the student. 

- Grant Vergottini, CEO, Xcential Corporation

Dr. Stephie excels in pulling ideas out of my own head and making them systematic and actionable. This is an essential part of her process of developing the educational materials we have at my company.

She has developed an educational seminar and eBook that is attracting new clients to my business. She is doing that with fresh eyes and a strong eye towards being strategic, maximizing the impact of our education-based communication and marketing.

Stephie always goes the extra mile. She is smart and very well rounded in her skills. Importantly, she always listens to what my vision and goals are, and we work accordingly. I highly recommend her!

- Ted Przybylek, CEO, RanchoTed

I have found that once or twice in a decade if I'm lucky, I'll walk away from a discussion that has the potential to impact the way I live my life. Sometimes the potential is to impact the overall happiness of others or me; sometimes it is the potential to impact my career.

The word "profound" comes to mind following one of these rare discussions. I just had one of these discussions with Stephie. This one has the potential to impact both others' and my own overall happiness and career. Better yet, it is only 8:45 in the morning!

- Jon MacDonald, Executive Vice President & General Counsel, Fairfield Residential
