23 February 2015, 9:37 pm
In today’s warp-speed business world, strategic agility – the ability to move fast with flexibility and focus – is no longer a competitive advantage. It’s a business imperative.

Who are YOU? What are you all about?

My mission is to help others be insanely successful!

As a business consultant, I work with companies of all sizes to:

  • Design and implement strategic plans that actually work.
  • Identify and overcome the unspoken assumptions and beliefs (about their customers, markets and businesses) that are holding them back from achieving the results they want.
  • Develop the systems, processes and leadership skills necessary to compete in today’s rapidly changing markets.

As a keynote speaker, I address audiences on several topics of import for today’s business leaders:

  • Overwhelmed by Complexity? Get Rid of Strategic Planning & Get Agile How to make the shift from strategic planning to strategic agility.
  • Are You Swift? How to move fast with focus and flexibility in today’s rapidly changing markets.
  • Reboot & Reload: Think Differently, Innovate & Win How to eliminate the “thought bubbles” that keep you stuck in the past and trigger your brain to increase innovation so you keep winning.

In this competitive world, what sets your business apart?

I go beyond traditional strategic planning and teach organizations how to develop strategic agility.

Today’s markets offer almost unlimited opportunities for companies that can move quickly while staying focused on the right things. The problem is that most companies charge ahead without really thinking about which opportunities are right for them and what they need to do to take advantage of them.

I teach companies how to “slow down to go fast” by showing them how to pause, think, focus, and run. As a result, my clients learn how to get it right the first time, so they avoid costly “do-overs” and stay ahead of their competitors.

Who is your ideal customer?

My ideal client is someone who needs help:

  • Setting the vision, mission and direction for their organization (defining what winning looks like)
  • Designing and implementing strategic plans
  • Overcoming organizational challenges that never seem to get resolved
  • Developing leadership within the organization
  • Changing the way they think about their customers and markets
  • Making innovation a way of life
