Five Ways That I Help

Call Me When 2 or More are True

1.  Knowledge - “here is something that you didn’t know”
I bring you experience and perspective

2.  Process – “this is how you can accomplish more”
I explain how to use proven methods

3.  Personal – “overcoming internal fears and barriers to success”
I inspire people to solve problems

4.  Relational – “developing better, more productive relationships with your co-workers or team”
I model ways to work together well

5.  Encouragement – “remembering what you are capable of doing”
I inspire a sense of what is possible

  • We are having trouble defining clearly what we want to do.

  • Even after we have a good definition, important people do not agree or support the vision.

  • Although we know a lot, we are puzzled about our next steps.

  • We have implemented a good strategy but are not seeing the results that we expected.

  • We are considering doing something new and need a plan to explore our options.

  • We spend most of our time thinking internally rather than externally.

  • We regularly are surprised by competitive news and competitor moves.

  • We need a fresh perspective to test our internal decisions.
