I get why business is hard. I have been there.
Each year I work directly with a few CEO's to help them drive change in their business.
My personal experience as a General Manager and CEO helps both in an advisory capacity, and also to augment your leadership bandwidth in general. I can help you shore up the parts of leading your team that you are running short of time for!
Sometimes I do this with other Leadership Development or Strategy into Action Programs, and sometimes I just partner with the CEO behind the scenes.The result: You optimize your time, and your organization works better.
I can work with your executive management team either as group, or one-on-one to deliver the strategic outcomes they are on the hook for. It's always about leadership grounded in the reality of your specific business challenges.
The result: Your executives get stronger, and more stuff in your business gets done.
The Director DilemmaIn virtually every organization I talk to, the executives tell me that they are frustrated with the director level managers. (It's not just you.) The execs feel like they keep getting pulled down to cover the strategic management work that the directors should be stepping up to do. The directors are not thinking and leading strategically enough.
The directors are equally frustrated
They are working themselves to death, and feel their work is not being appreciated or recognized. Directors have been promoted from managers, but maybe no one has told them that the world has changed. The job is really different now.
A unique program for your directors
I work with your directors over the course of 6-12 months to close this gap, and to help your directors become more strategic leaders.
I get them to really understand how much their job has changed since they were a manager, and what it takes to be successful at the executive level. I challenge your directors' imagination to realize the type of strategic leadership work they need to be doing, and give them the tools to start re-inventing the workload to be less overwhelming and deliver more business value.
The result: Your directors are motivated and able to personally drive strategic change.
I work with companies and leaders who want to improve the way they work.
I am an experienced CEO, GM and business leader. I have transformed, turned around, and scaled the businesses I have led personally. I have significant experience developing executives and helping leaders step up to do a bigger more strategic job.
I work with CEO's and GM's who want to drive the same kind of strategic change in their business, and to improve the way their whole organization functions.
