About Us



Your Web Footed Friends promise to listen, to look at several alternative solutions to achieve your organizational goals and to recommend that action which we would take ourselves if we were in your situation.


Talent is everywhere. Everyone should develop their talent and overwhelm their weaknesses. Organizations can achieve their missions based on probabilities if they can measure available talent, measure the talent required for each role, and match talent to tasks.

The primary responsibility and legacy of leadership is to get the right people on the team, the wrong people off the team, and every one on the team playing the right position.


Web Footed Friends is a virtual organization; bringing together talented individuals to address our clients need in pursuit of organizational growth and excellence.
