Is This You?

Is This You?

I work with a select group of forward-thinking corporate leaders and business owners who are facing challenges due to their success. They are typically at an inflection point in their growth and need a fresh perspective to make the next leap.

Are any of these statements true for you?

  • Things are moving more slowly than they should – my people need to have more urgency
  • I’m getting pulled into too many decisions – I need my next level leaders to take ownership
  • We’ve lost some key players and I’m concerned about the morale
  • People are getting burned out and I’m concerned about losing them
  • I want more ideas being generated throughout the organization
  • If we keep having to deal with people problems we won’t hit our goals
  • I can’t recruit good enough employees
  • As we’ve started to grow, we have had more mistakes with key customers
  • We need to systemize parts of our business, but I don’t know where to start

The owners and leaders of these diverse businesses have four things in common:

  1. They see their career in bigger terms than just making money or having power – they see their business as a way to impact the world in a positive way (strength of character and willingness to take a stand).  They see themselves beyond any current role. They are involved in their families and communities. They have interests outside of work.
  2. They are bold and decisive – and not satisfied with the status quo (little tolerance of bureaucracy and “that’s how we’ve always done it” yet adept enough to operate in those environments). They are willing to push for what they believe in and know how to get things done in the real world.
  3. They are natural leaders who know that their main responsibility is the quality and performance of their teams (willing to invest in teams and care about them personally). They actively seek out the best talent and seek to develop them further. They invest in their people.
  4. They are open to change and eager for new ideas that will help them accomplish their goals more quickly (growth oriented – personally and professionally). They are open to ideas and creative approaches – no matter where they originate.  They are willing to try new avenues and will put the resources needed in place to ensure that they succeed.

My best clients are ones who…

  • Lead companies who are already leaders in their industries. They want to go from “Good to Great”.
  • Do what it takes to deliver quality professional services and products for their clients and customers.
  • Strive for excellence and continuous improvement.
  • Adhere to the highest standards of honesty and integrity. If you want to succeed by taking unethical shortcuts, I’m not for you. If you want to play the business game at the highest level and still have a lot of fun, I’d like to help you succeed.
