Definition : to sail against the wind
Laveer was formed in early 2017 to meet the needs of organizations across the hospitality industry, including vacation rentals, hotels, and resort management companies. We have set out to provide valuable insight from years of experience in launching, leading, growing and selling companies.
The name ‘Laveer’ was chosen due to its sailing term meaning - to sail against the wind. In business it’s not always smooth sailing. Helping navigate the challenging headwinds is what Laveer is all about.

What our customers are saying about us.
"PI has been a complete game changer for the staff of Blue. We use it on all new hires and our existing staff has embraced it as well. Our communication has improved tremendously among the staff since we implemented the program and our productivity has increased as a result."
"Laveer & Co introduced us to the Predictive Index which helped us evaluate our team and optimized the organization by helping us put the right people in the right seats. They have been performing behavioral surveying and helping other organizations to assess their teams and finding new talent for over 10 years. Laveer also helped us with implementing EOS (Traction) which drastically helped us with the organization of each department and truly helped us get a grip on the business. I definitely recommend Laveer & Co for team optimization consulting."
"I've known Steve for the better part of 10 years, and recently engaged him and his consulting firm (Laveer and Co) for help with my vacation home management company. He and his team assisted me in two ways: 1) general insight and suggestions to our model and direction, and 2) Turned us onto the Predictive Index to examine and optimize talent in our organization. His decade experience in behavioral surveying, and helping an organization assess its people and candidates proved enormously helpful to us. We use PI to this day, and Steve continues to be extremely responsive to our questions, and assists assessing certain personnel decisions. I'd highly recommend Steve and Laveer and Co for vacation rental and/or people optimization consulting."
"So, I’d have to say we are overly impressed with your approach, experience you bring to bear, manner in which you counsel us, your consistent pushing for us to reach new levels, diligence in getting us to adopt Traction/EOS and holding our hand along the way, and……now seeing us reaching critical goals we HAD to achieve. THANK YOU for all you have done, continue to do, and walking alongside us as we forge ahead!"
