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.
