We Are Not Those Guys
We are not consultants. At least the ones you think you know.
If you’ve worked with the shiny suits and been left with binders instead of tools your team is excited to use, we feel you. We’ve been there.
We will never be that guy.
We Are You
Because we’ve been in your shoes. Literally.
We’ve endured those endless leadership meetings when all we wanted to do was get things done. We know the itch of waste. Time. Resources. Potential.
What We Do
So we won’t tell you what to do. You know your business better than we do.
What we have are proven, research-backed tools and processes that will enable you to do more with the same resources, people and investments you’re already working with.
You know your business. We won’t insult your intelligence or change things for change’s sake.
Our job is to bring our proven (battle tested), research-backed tools and processes to enable you to do more with what you already have.
We speak “executive” in kitchen English.
How We Are Different
Once issues are understood, we’ll push you to stop admiring the problem and dispense with the analysis paralysis that gets people swimming in circles so you can get things done. We would rather go live with 90% than see a client miss an opportunity waiting for perfection. Many companies today are building the ‘plane’ while flying it. We’ll meet you there.
We grew up as business leaders ourselves. Nothing gets your attention like managing a P&L to create solutions that are workable, on the ground where they’re needed. We speak in Kitchen English and do our best to use terms and ideas that are understandable in the language of your industry.
We do the work, train the people and let you run your business, teaching leaders to execute without us. We provide toolkits that are easily embedded into your daily work based on proven and practical research that make us ‘sticking around’ obsolete. We are on-site when we need to be, but won’t tie up a conference room when we don’t.
We are flexible. We adjust our approach and solution to client need and cultural nuances. If you want cutting edge solutions, we’re there with you. Baby steps? We can do that to.
You employ smart people to lead your company and leveraging them is often the most sustainable path forward. Where we can, we use techniques to get them unstuck and moving in the right direction. Where we can’t, we bring in expertise.
Our workshops experiences turn everything you know about training upside down. You will learn skills while making progress on real issues or opportunities that are relevant to you, typically things that you have applied your best thinking to and haven’t been able to solve.
Our bias will always be to create alignment. We help get your leadership team and organization get on the same page, aligned to your strategy and, most importantly, to your customer. We rock at creating shared agendas and aligning people
