Get to Know: Compass Productivity

Navigating Success| Compass Productivity Guides Businesses to New Heights

In the quest for accelerated growth and sustainable success, fast-growing businesses seek a reliable compass to guide them. Business partners Steven Granese and Adam Ulery created Compass Productivity to help high-performing leaders rediscover what made their organization great by implementing modern productivity tools and techniques. They started their firm with a singular mission - to apply the same tools and techniques they implemented for the last decade at Fortune 500 enterprises and Big 4 consulting firms and make them available to any organization and individual. ​Offering a unique blend of hands-on courses to learn new ideas, and customized coaching to support implementation, they help teams get the right work done faster.


Adam and Steven were co-workers for eight years at the tech consulting firm AgileThought before embarking on a path of entrepreneurship. This path led them to the Entrepreneurial Academy (EA) through The Greenhouse, where Compass Productivity's vision became reality. The experience gained from the Entrepreneurial Academy instilled confidence that St. Pete was the ideal location to build their business.


Compass Productivity's core services include courses and coaching on modern productivity topics like Objectives & Key Results (OKRs), Agile, Design Thinking, Product, Time Management, and AI. Their flagship offering, OKRs, is a powerful goal-setting framework for organizations to clarify and execute their most aspirational goals. They work closely with their clients to identify motivational objectives and develop measurable key results, ensuring that teams stay focused and aligned on the work that matters the most. Recently, they began helping clients with techniques to incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) into daily workflow to dramatically improve productivity. They expect their AI service offering to explode in the coming months and years.


Compass Productivity recently announced its new partnership with the Chamber of Commerce to convene the  Leadership Alliance. They will align leaders from across the city using OKRs around Mayor Welch's five Pillars for Progress.  This partnership is just another example of how Steven and Adam align themselves with the city's vision of economic growth, community development, and overall prosperity.


In the capable hands of Compass Productivity, businesses find their true north, propelled towards new heights of achievement. Steven Granese and Adam Ulery's vision of empowering businesses for success shapes a dynamic future for both Compass Productivity and the thriving city of St. Pete. Together, they stand as a guiding compass, illuminating the path to greatness for businesses seeking to conquer new horizons.

“Compass Productivity has supported our senior leaders by establishing a clear path forward for our organization and our members. They have become an invaluable resource to our community. The term "OKRs" has become part of our vocabulary and culture within our Board of Governors and committee leaders.”
