About Organizational Physics

Organizational Physics is a pioneer in applying first-principles to managing and scaling organizations. Our philosophy is that organizations, like physical systems, are governed by universal principles. By understanding and applying these principles, leaders can make better decisions, improve performance, and create more resilient organizations.

The results speak for themselves: within 7 to 9 months after implementing Organizational Physics, most coaching clients show a sustained 65 to 75% improvement in internal operating performance (as measured by them) and simultaneously realize a 2X to 3X increase in sales over the next 1 to 3 years. In fact, a handful of well-positioned clients have grown 10X in that time-frame, achieving multi-billion-dollar valuations.

Through his own challenges founding and leading fast-growing companies, Lex began a quest to find a simple, effective paradigm for other founders and CEOs to achieve market-leading, differentiated, and profitable positions for their companies. After years of work in this field, Lex discovered that organizational success can be distilled to some simple, yet powerful principles clearly explained by the classic laws of physics – laws that were true 10,000 years ago and will be just as true 10,000 years from now. His unique approach combines a powerful theoretical framework with practical methods to guide organizational leaders toward greater success and work/life satisfaction.

My work is driven by the following three principles:

It starts at the top
I work directly with founders and CEOs who sense a big opportunity in front of them and are determined to capture it. This requires vision, intelligence, and passion. I have witnessed firsthand that inspired business ideas, executed swiftly, always trump a purely analytical, “by the numbers” approach. When the founder/CEO is truly committed, the entire organization responds accordingly. So part of my job is to help leaders clarify their vision, commitments, and priorities.

Partner for success
Great leadership needs great advisors – and that’s where CEO coaching fits in. All of my engagements are based on collaboration and partnership. This is not a traditional consultancy that produces reports and performs implementations independently. I work side by side with my clients. Because I am an independent advisor, I provide clarity and a level of perspective that you just can’t get from within the company itself and that helps you uncover the real opportunities.

Don’t fight the physics

“In physics, you identify clues that lead to fundamental truths. You build models and see if they can explain the world around you.”
– Safi Bahcall

The fact is that there are universal laws at work in your life and business. You need to understand and work with them so that you can resolve the underlying conditions that are causing any breakdowns. And although every business is unique, the principles and patterns are always the same. When you can see them, you’re three steps ahead of those who can’t. I help you to understand the principles and see the patterns to turn breakdowns into breakthroughs.
