  Is your business controlling you?

Day-to-day demands leave little time for planning. Consequently, you may find yourself reacting to threats instead of exploiting opportunities. That’s no way to get ahead. I help you take control of your business and its future by clearly defining your mission, goals, and objectives, and then developing a plan to help you make and measure progress.

 
     
  Are your people frustrated and unhappy?

Conflict and confusion sap productivity. They’re also quite common, especially as organizations mature and change. Often, the problem is a lack of clearly defined roles or policies. I’m expert at creating the management tools and structures that support happiness and harmony—that pull everyone together to get the job done.

 
     
  Can you do it better, smarter, and faster?

Business processes often evolve haphazardly, as needed, with little consideration of end-to-end efficiency. Critical tasks may be dangerously dependent on a single employee. Or you may be confused by the host of automated systems that claim to make you more competitive. I help you identify and then refine or reinvent key processes, with dramatic results.

 
     
  Why someone from the outside?

Perspective. It’s critical to sound business planning and problem solving. And it’s best found outside your organization. I offer not only the perspective you need to move your business forward, but also the expertise to get the job done. Not to mention the extra hands—I can bring in a variety of trusted associates as your needs demand.

Drawing on decades of real-world business experience, I help you break down your goal or problem into manageable pieces and then attack it systematically. I’m both thinker and doer: I analyze and plan, and then (if you like) assist in creating and implementing the needed programs and procedures.

At heart, I’m a teacher. I leave you with the skills and the confidence you need to navigate the next challenge yourself.
