About Tom

Tom Newhouse

Success. Everyone wants it…and in full measure!



Tom started Premier Platinum Performance to help leaders and organizations attain success. Everyone wants it—a lot of it. But it’s evasive. As an accomplished coach, instructor, team builder and change manager, Tom equips business leaders for successful performance—effectively leading oneself, others and organizations to generate results!

Tom varies his approach to match clients and their needs. But, typically, he first assesses one’s practices and competencies and then leverages one’s natural strengths in order to:

  • Deliver personal effectiveness— e.g., motivation, proactivity and prioritization
  • Set direction— e.g., vision, mission, customer value, strategy and planned execution
  • Engage others— e.g., emotional intelligence, mastering crucial conversations and coaching
  • Foster collaboration— e.g., team building, influence systems and leading change

Tom’s Background

For 30 years Tom worked as an internal consultant with EG&G, Rockwell and Orbital ATK, aiding leaders and organizations in developing and executing successful strategies. In addition to his BS in Education and MA in Communication, Tom has completed a broad spectrum of courses in leadership and organization development, and he is a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and a Certified Professional Behavioral Analyst (CPBA). He has taught courses in communication for the University of Nebraska and Montana State University.

Further, specific and detailed credentials are called out with each of his primary expertise areas in “Services.” For hobbies, Tom enjoys theatre, tennis, skiing, hiking and travel.

As an ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) operating from a Christian worldview, Tom is an empowering facilitator, engaging a client’s inherent strengths, ideas and energy to enable success. Where skills or fresh ideas are needed, he can shift his approach from coaching to consulting.
